DCLXVI: To Ride, Shoot Straight and Speak the Truth is the fourth album by the Swedish metal band Entombed, released in 1997. DCLXVI is 666 in Roman numerals. The cover art features a statuette of the Aztec god Mictlantecuhtli. This album shows a continuation of the death 'n' roll sound previously established on 1993's "Wolverine Blues", but eschews most traces of hardcore and traditional death metal in favor of a stoner rock and garage rock influenced sound.

The album was Metal Hammer magazine's #2 album of 1997. It was beaten by UK (non-metal) band Feeder's debut album Polythene, but it was ranked above many commercially famous albums from that year, most significantly (non-metal band) The Verve's Urban Hymns.[citation needed]
