BLOODBATH - Resurrection Through Carnage LP (SILVER)
Resurrection Through Carnage built on the foundations laid by the Breeding Death EP, with a continuation of the classic old school Swedish sound and d-beat style, whilst notably establishing a maturity and identity of their own.
The album introduced more dynamic and controlled, groove-laden passages and melodic/atmospheric texturing, whilst still infusing the compositions with influences from Death Metal’s glorious past.
As with Breeding Death, Bloodbath's line-up of Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse of Katatonia, Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth, and Dan Swanö of Edge of Sanity remained, with production and engineering duties once more handled by Dan Swanö and the band
Bloodbath is a titan of Death Metal from Stockholm, Sweden, notable for the inclusion of Katatonia and Opeth members and, in their recent era, welcoming Nick Holmes of UK Doom legends Paradise Lost to join in with the brutality.
Formed in 1998 with a mutual fascination for horror & the glory days of Death Metal from classic bands such as Entombed, Morbid Angel, Cancer & Autopsy, Bloodbath has remained a leading light of Extreme Metal since their Breeding Death EP was unleashed back in 2000, and a formidable force for over 20 years, cemented in recent times by their Grand Morbid Funeral (2014) opus and its follow-up, the even blacker-hearted The Arrow of Satan is Drawn in 2018.
Limited silver vinyl reissue of Bloodbath's 2002 debut studio album marking 20 years since its release.
