Century Media Records
Sweden is home to a lot of totally shitty bands these days. Bloodbath is not one of them. This band has actually existed for almost six years now. Don’t let the founding members’ more accessible full-time gigs (Edge of Sanity, Opeth) fool you—Bloodbath is a serious nod to the old school of death metal! This particular release sees more aggression, sometimes slower paced, with the great topics of death metal that we’ve come to love—death, pestilence, gore and death. Did I mention Hypocrisy’s Peter Tagtgren replaces that Opeth pussy on here? Well, he does. Peter’s low vocals are second to none.
