A deadly dawn is spreading across the land as ENTOMBED A.D. drops a horrifying new video for the title track off their newest album, Dead Dawn. Zombies will attack, so hold on to your brains!
Guitarist Nico Elgstrand comments on the video: “Finally a serious video without the usual nonsense often associated with Metal these days. This one has depth and a very important message that we think is overlooked in today's media climate. Anyone with half a brain will stop with whatever they're doing and realize that we must take a stand against these injust accusations that metal is for stupid people, that's simply not true and this video we think portrayed it beautifully! Enjoy this fine release that will leave you enchanted and content that you're a thinking individual with exquisite taste and that Entombed A.D. is telling it like it is, uncensored and amazingly with superior subtlety and finesse!!”

Less violent and more melodic but yet still keeping the european 90's black metal influences, the band wanted to demonstrate how much it ment to them.

Once again the cold and mysterious landscapes of eastern France and it's history has been the main inspiration of the melodic riffs of the album.
