The wait is over! It is now confirmed that the new vocalist for Bloodbath is Nick Holmes of Paradise Lost! The good people at Metal Hammer revealed the news this morning, and I’m beyond excited! Bloodbath will be unleashing “Grand Morbid Funeral” on November 17th via Peaceville Records, and now that I know that Nick is behind the mic, my anticipation for this album just went through the roof! Here’s what Jonas Renkse said on Nick’s addition: “Ever since I got into Lost Paradise back in 1990.Nick Holmes has been one of my favourite growling vocalists out there. He was always audible and articulate but still deep and definitely morbid. It is a great pleasure to work with him some 25 years later after I was introduced to his thunderous roar!”
Anders ‘Blakkheim’ Nyström added, “Little did I expect to be working with the voice behind the death metal classic Lost Paradise, or the genre-defining Gothic and yet here we are decades later, fulfilling another death metal dream. With his sinister and ominous vocal delivery, it’s an absolute pleasure to make Old Nick the bell-ringer in Bloodbath’s grand morbid funeral!”
Now we know when the album is coming, who the vocalist is, and all that is left to hear some of the new material! It’s coming soon, so stay tuned, and get ready, because with Nick on vocals, this is going to be HUGE!!!
