SWEDEN’S DEATH METAL SUPERGROUP BLOODBATH INVITE YOU INTO THE “CHURCH OF VASTITAS” WITH MORBID NEW VIDEO
The new Ash Pears directed video for Bloodbath’s ‘Church of Vastitas’ is now streaming exclusively at Noisey and can be checked out below.
Bloodbath is a titan of death metal from Stockholm, Sweden, formed in 1998 & notable for the inclusion of Katatonia, Opeth and now Paradise Lost members. Following the departure of Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt and months of speculation and rumour, Nick Holmes was announced as the new vocalist of Bloodbath.
Recorded once again at Ghost Ward Studios and the City of Glass Studios in Stockholm, and mixed by David Castillo, Grand Morbid Funeral is undoubtedly the band’s darkest and dirtiest opus yet; an organic collection of filth-ridden tracks straight from the grave, boldly eschewing the approach of somewhat over-produced modern death metal in favour of something altogether more rotten to the bone.
With eerie, doom-like melodies mixed with raw and savage riffing, and featuring a number of guest appearances including Chris Reifert and Eric Cutler from U.S. gore-masters, Autopsy, Grand Morbid Funeral is a new high-point of brutality for Bloodbath.

Bloodbath is set to appear on a string of festivals throughout 2015, including Inferno festival (Norway), Neurotic Deathfest (The Netherlands) and Maryland Deathfest (USA) with more tba.
