Bloodbath 'Resurrection Through Carnage' LP
Bloodbath is a titan of death metal from Stockholm, Sweden, notable for the inclusion of Katatonia and Opeth members and in their recent era, welcoming Nick Holmes of UK doom legends Paradise Lost to join in with the brutality Formed in 1998 with a mutual fascination for horror and the glory days of death metal from classic bands such as Entombed, Morbid Angel, Cancer and Autopsy, Bloodbath has remained a leading light of extreme metal since their Breeding Death EP was unleashed back in 2000 and a formidable force for over 20 years, cemented in recent times by their Grand Morbid Funeral (2014) opus and its followup, the even blacker-hearted The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn in 2018.
Debut album Resurrection Through Carnage was released in 2002 and built on the foundations laid by the Breeding Death EP, with a continuation of the classic old school Swedish sound and d-beat style, whilst notably establishing a maturity and identity of their own. The album introduced more dynamic and controlled, groove- laden passages and melodic/atmospheric texturing, whilst still infusing the compositions with influences from the genre's glorious past.
