Clandestine is the second studio album by Swedish death metal band Entombed, released on 12 November 1991 in Europe and on 11 February 1992 in North America. Along with Entombed's preceding album, Clandestine helped establish a distinctively Swedish sound in the death metal genre.

This is the only Entombed album on which original vocalist L.G. Petrov does not appear. Petrov was fired from the band prior to the production of Clandestine due to personal disputes.[1] Drummer Nicke Andersson provided vocals on the album while Johnny Dordevic, formerly of Carnage, was hired as the band's vocalist for the ensuing tour.[2]
