Bloodbath, The Arrow of Satan is Drawn comes out October 26th 2018 via Peaceville Records. The track, “Chainsaw Lullaby” is a fantastic example of everything Bloodbath and as a fan of the band I’m really excited to hear more. The video itself is set as a traditional slasher horror movie which holds a special place in the hearts of the band’s members.
The band gave a bunch of details themselves along with the release of the video:
The 1980s saw the Swedish teenagers consuming all the horror and slasher movies they could, glued to their VHS’, their obsession with the genre only intensified as the media campaigned and lobbied against an outbreak of “video-violence”, preaching warnings of how it would ruin a generation of kids.
Fast forward 30 years and those media warnings have come to fruition as those teenagers grew up and became Bloodbath, Sweden’s shadiest death cult and they now present to you “Chainsaw Lullaby”, the gore filled, blood splattered ode to their weapon of choice spliced together with an AC/DC inspired death ‘n’ roll soundtrack.
Welcome to the terrifying Bloodbath world where the saw IS the law!
Anders ‘Blakkheim’ Nystrom comments:
“I wanted to keep it really simple and uncomplicated whilst retaining an evil groovy drive to make the song engage in headbanging action and sing along exercises. Having started a ‘red’ thread, I then locked in the chainsaw concept as a dual tribute to the Boss HM-2 guitar pedal sound as well as my love for the horror slasher genre and had both the music and lyrics going at the same time. I’ve always been a fan of lyrical paradoxes and the song title was just waiting to happen.”
