Entombed
Unreal Estate (Threeman)

By: Mike SOS

Entombed playing Sweden's Royal Opera Hall as a ballet company does interpretive dance sounds like a skit from the mind's of a comedy troupe, yet this really happened, and Unreal Estate is the audible proof. And quite the proof it is, as the pioneers of extreme metal have placed another feather in their caps by putting on this production. While the stark silence between songs gives the disc a sterile quality, Entombed sound on top of their game here, as tracks like "Say it With Slugs", "Something Out of Nothing" and the title track give off sonic reverberations that members of the usually stuffy audience are probably still trying to shake. Powerful, yet with the visuals absent, you don't get the full experience, and that alone is worth the wait for the DVD. Nonetheless, the pristine acoustics do justice to Entombed's slash and burn style and adds a novel quality to the overall disc.
