Sweden’s master of horror BLOODBATH has premiered a new video for “Church Of Vastitas” via Noisey, at this location. The track is taken from the impending ‘Grand Morbid Funeral’ album, set for release on 17th November, via Peaceville Records.
Pre-order Grand Morbid Funeral through the Peaceville Bloodbath store here.
Bloodbath is a titan of death metal from Stockholm, Sweden, 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 rumor, Nick Holmes was announced as the new vocalist of Bloodbath last month.
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 favor 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-master, Autopsy, Grand Morbid Funeral is a new high-point of brutality for Bloodbath.

Formed in 1998 with a mutual fascination for horror and the glory days of death metal (especially the old Florida & Stockholm ‘Sunlight’ scenes), the band has remained a leading light of extreme metal since its ‘Breeding Death’ EP was unleashed back in 2000, and a formidable force for 15 years, further cemented by the devastating – and most successful album to date – The Fathomless Mastery in 2008.
Bloodbath is set to appear on a string of festivals throughout 2015, including Inferno festival (Norway), Neurotic Deathfest (The Netherlands) and Maryland Deathfest (U.S.) with more TBA.
