Bloodbath -Grand Morbid Funeral Vinyl LP
THE FOURTH STUDIO ALBUM OF SUPREME DEATH METAL FROM SWEDEN'S MASTERS OF HORROR, BLOODBATH
Bloodbath is a titan of death metal from Stockholm, Sweden, notable for the inclusion of Katatonia, Opeth and Paradise Lost members. Formed in 1998 with a mutual fascination for horror & the glory days of death metal (especially the old Florida & Stockholm 'Sunlight' scenes), the band has remained a leading light of extreme metal since their 'Breeding Death' EP was unleashed back in 2000, and a formidable force for 20 years, further cemented by the malevolent torrent of blasphemy on their 2019 studio album 'The Arrow of Satan is Drawn'.
Recorded at Ghost Ward Studios and the City of Glass Studios in Stockholm, and mixed by David Castillo, 'Grand Morbid Funeral', Bloodbath's fourth full-length studio release, was undoubtedly the band's darkest and dirtiest opus; an organic collection of filth-ridden tracks straight from the grave, boldly eschewing the approach of somewhat over-produced modern death metal in favour of something altogether more rotten to the bone.
With doom-like melodies mixed with raw and savage riffing and featuring several guest appearances including Chris Reifert and Eric Cutler from US gore-masters Autopsy, 'Grand Morbid Funeral' marked a new high-point of brutality for Bloodbath.
