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.
'Breeding Death' was the original catalyst to propel Bloodbath into the death metal sphere with full
force. Primarily dedicated to recreating the buzzsaw, high-energy sound of mainly Swedish greats
such as Entombed, Carnage and Dismember, 'Breeding Death' was pure death metal worship to
reignite the fading old school essence of brutality as the 21st century dawned.
Bloodbath's initial line-up consisted of Anders Nystr m and Jonas Renkse of Katatonia joined by
Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth on vocals, and completed by Dan Swan of Edge of Sanity on drums. The
EP was recorded at The Sanctuary in Sweden, with production and mixing duties also handled by Dan
