FUCK YES!!!!!! We’ve known for many weeks now that the great Bloodbath has been working on their new album, and now we finally know when it’s coming! Bloodbath will be unleashing “Grand Morbid Funeral” on November 17th via Peaceville Records! Anders “Blakkheim” Nyström previously described the new material as “rotten dirty slabs of death metal from the basement,” and we are only 67 days away from hearing the album in it’s entirety! Here’s their latest update: “We’re proud of all these different styled releases and we loved doing each and every one of them, but the objective was never to settle with a certain style, so our time has come to shift once more. It was already decided right after the last album that the next record would not become The Fathomless Mastery part two, but in certain aspects it would actually become its antithesis. So prepare for an ultimate blueprint of destructive, raw, heavy, organic, and sludgy death metal.”
As for the mystery of who the new vocalist is…we will find out on September 16th. For now, let’s enjoy some classic footage with Mikael Åkerfeldt from 2010 below!
