Bloodbath Reveal First Video & Track from New Album
Bloodbath, Stockholm’s shadiest death cult – with members drawn from metal luminaries Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Opeth and Craft - have released their first blood soaked track “Bloodicide”, from their eagerly awaited new album The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn (October 26 via Peaceville).
The track “Bloodicide”, quite literally meaning ‘The Killing Of Blood’ features a stellar line up 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.
The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn is a new slab of old-school, HM-2 driven blackness, recorded by Bloodbath and Karl Daniel Liden, at Ghost Ward, City Of Glass & Tri-Lamb Studios and is the second with Old Nick on vocals. If their previous Grand Morbid Funeral was a thick spray of deathly noise, on The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn, it is the rotten, fetid state of the world and our inevitable doom that is casting a looming shadow over proceedings. With world leaders threatening nuclear annihilation in 140 characters over social media, capitalism tearing itself apart, a wilful march into a surveillance state via handy pocket spying devices, a shifting climate that appears to literally be trying to kill us… It’s all fuelled Bloodbath’s newest ode to filth.
