Played at Graspop Metal Meeting
2010 / 2018






Bloodbath are a death metal supergroup formed one evening in 1998 by four Swedish friends. Katatonia’s Anders Nyström & Jonas Renske, Mikael Åkerfeldt from Opeth and progressive death metal master Dan Swanö originally intended the project as a tribute to old school death metal with a modern twist but it soon became apparent that Bloodbath were here to stay. Inspired by the likes of Dismember and Entombed, ‘Resurrection through Carnage’ (2002) and ‘Nightmares Made Flesh’ (2004) were massive death metal statements and the recording of their maiden gig, The Wacken Carnage (2005), is legendary. Åkerfeldt was briefly replaced by Peter Tägtgren before Paradise Lost frontman Nick Holmes took up vocal duties in 2012. ’Grand Morbid Funeral’ (2014) is yet another top-heavy slab of old school death metal meets Florida style. This is a must-see for old school death metal enthusiasts! (#GMM18)
