First of all, hope you're pleased with a new and individual forum for Bloodbath. It was the right time to make one 'cuz the band is BAKK!!!
Yeah, we're currently fueling up for another lap in the death metal lane as the band has now begun writing the material for the follow-up to Resurrection Through Carnage with the studio being booked for late spring.
Now, there has been some relevant changes in the line-up. Vocalist Mike Åkerfeldt has been kicked out and a replacement is already found in one of the biggest names in the scene. Furthermore, drummer Dan Swanö has decided to step off at the death metal depot to switch instruments and is now sharing guitar duties with me. Taking over the drums, is yet another big big name. Jonas Renkse is still keepin the decay and pulse behind the bass and is leading the race of gathering pile after pile with sick and dark lyrics.
As for the new members, their secret names will be revealed soon. A monster album is promised!!!”
