• bloodbath Grand Morbid Funeral (CD, £7.95)

    label: peaceville

    This edition of ‘Grand Morbid Funeral’ is released as a mid-price CD in a jewel case with an 8-page booklet and an OBI card. Bloodbath is a titan of death metal from Stockholm, Sweden, notable for the inclusion of Katatonia and Opeth members. Formed in 1998 with a mutual fascination for horror & the glory days of death metal (especially the old Florida & Stockholm ‘Sunlight’ scenes), the band has remained a leading light of extreme metal since their ‘Breeding Death’ EP was unleashed back in 2000, and a formidable force for 15 years, further cemented by their devastating - and most successful album at the time - ‘The Fathomless Mastery’ in 2008. Recorded at Ghost Ward Studios and the City of Glass Studios in Stockholm, and mixed by David Castillo, ‘Grand Morbid Funeral’, Bloodbath’s fourth full-length studio release, undoubtedly represented the band’s darkest and dirtiest opus; 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 doom-like melodies mixed with raw and savage riffing, and featuring several guest appearances including Chris Reifert and Eric Cutler from US goremasters Autopsy, ‘Grand Morbid Funeral’ is a new high-point of brutality for Bloodbath. Tracks: Let The Stillborn Come To Me / Total Death Exhumed / Anne / Church Of Vastitas / Famine Of God's Word / Mental Abortion / Beyond Cremation / His Infernal Necropsy / Unite In Pain / My Torturer / Grand Morbid Funeral
