Bloodbath - Announce New Album

Death metal supergroup Bloodbath have announced a new record, The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn, to be released by Peaceville Records on October 26th, 2018. Read below what the band posted on their Facebook page.

"Like all gore-drenched sequels, demonic death metal supergroup, Bloodbath's fifth slice of morbid savagery comes even darker, nastier and sicker than before. It's been four years since Grand Morbid Funeral, and Stockholm's shadiest death cult - with members drawn from metal luminaries Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Opeth and Craft - return with a new slab of old-school, HM-2 driven blackness: The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn.

"There's an extra nasty layer on The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn. This time, among the usual chainsaw riffs and blasts, the darkness is also reflected in the addition of new guitarist Joakim Karlsson of Swedish black metal plague Craft. It's a step forward that's only given the band's already fearsome fangs extra rabid bite.

"He's not the only extra face getting covered in gore. Track 2 'Bloodicide' - quite literally meaning 'The Killing Of Blood' - features a full house of British death metal guest stars, with Carcass' Jeff Walker, Bolt Thrower / Memoriam singer Karl Willetts and Cancer's John Walker all lending their larynxes to the madness."

This better be good.

I have a good feeling about this one. The last one was a disappointment.

Mikael has lost his good death metal voice or just didn't want to, so there was no choice. And Peter...I'm surprised I'm so alone with this, but I'm glad he left. He didn't fit to Bloodbath. He almost ruined the band for me with his melodeath screams. Mikael did his songs better on Wacken Carnage and Nick is the better, worthier replacement, imo.

Hoping for a much more elevated experience this time around. The last release fell flat for me and I have never looked back on it. All the best my friends!
