Last week, Bloodbath revealed that Paradise Lost frontman Nick Holmes was taking over vocal duties for the band. Now we can finally hear what the new iteration of the band sounds like. And, it sounds pretty good:
It certainly doesn't sound much like old Bloodbath, and that's intentional according to guitarist Blakkheim:
"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 the time has come to shift once more. It was already decided right after the last album that the next record would not be a "Fathomless part 2", but it would actually become its antithesis! So prepare yourselves for an ultimate blueprint of low-fi, raw, heavy, organic and sludgy death metal sound! The time has come to stomp those HM-2 pedals once more and close the circle of the death metal archives with our Grand Morbid Funeral"
