The band eventually died out but was resurrected by founding member Jimmy Lundqvist in 2008. In his own words: "I was too nostalgic and said to myself that: Now, many years after the band died, my old songs must be recorded and a demo shall be made, so I started the band again on my own".  SInce their ressurection, Entrails have released some of their previously recorded material, plus three new full-length albums.
