THE FIFTH FULL-LENGTH STUDIO RELEASE FROM THE SWEDISH MASTERS OF METAL EXTREMITY, FUSING THE BEST OF DEATH & BLACK METAL INTO A MALEVOLENT TORRENT OF BLASPHEMY.
The band began the recording of their fifth studio album in early 2018, with new guitarist Joakim Karlsson of Swedish black metal cult Craft welcomed into the fold.
With an unyielding thirst for the macabre, 'The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn', sees the band's current direction taking a step into even darker waters.
Here, Bloodbath explore the boundaries of extremity, mixing in the best of death, thrash & black metal to create a perfect storm of chaos, delivered with the same ferocious HM-2 buzzsaw sound & relentless riff assault mastered over the years, combined with themes of the occult and pure horror.
Joining Bloodbath on the 'Bloodicide' track is an unholy choir formed from the diabolical triumvirate of UK death metal legends, namely Jeff Walker from Carcass, John Walker from Cancer, and Karl Willetts from Bolt Thrower.
'The Arrow of Satan is Drawn' was recorded at Ghost Ward, City Of Glass & Tri-Lamb Studios, February - June 2018, & mixed & mastered by Karl Daniel Liden at Tri-Lamb Studios.
The cover was painted by notable artist Eliran Kantor (Testament/Sodom); a subtle piece to accentuate the title's underlying looming evil, created as a message of unholy provocation and impending threat.
