With doom-like melodies mixed with raw and savage riffing backing up new vocalist Nick Holmes of UK legends Paradise Lost, and featuring a number of guest appearances including Chris Reifert and Eric Cutler from US gore-masters Autopsy, 'Grand Morbid Funeral' is a new high-point of brutality for Bloodbath.
Grand Morbid Funeral bundle
Bloodbath formed in 1998 when, one evening, friends Mikael Åkerfeldt (Opeth) - Vocals, Anders Nyström (Katatonia) - Guitars, Jonas Renkse (Katatonia) - Bass, Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity) – Drums, thought it would be good to thrash out some classic death metal in the style of early Entombed, mixed with some of the US Florida death metal scene bands. Quite simply, Bloodbath was born out of this shared admiration for quality death metal in the old style & the guys quickly realized that they could churn some ugly metal out to a pretty high standard. From this one session the Breeding Death EP was written; the songs naturally & spontaneously coming together, and subsequently released in 1999.READ MORE
