Photos taken at Tuska Open Air - 2008 metal festival. Entombed is a Swedish death metal band which formed in 1987 under the name of Nihilist. Though Entombed began their career as an early pioneer of Scandinavian death metal, by the early 1990s their sound had broadened to include hardcore punk and other influences. This new style would eventually be described as death 'n' roll. Entombed have been influenced by bands such as Slayer, KISS, The Misfits, Motörhead and Discharge.
