In a recent interview with BW&BK, Hypocrisy/Pain frontman Peter Tägtgren discussed his decision to leave Bloodbath. For those that have been living under a rock, Tägtgren provided vocals on the band's new album, "Nightmares Made Flesh," replacing Opeth vocalist Mike Akerfeldt.

"Leave? I was never in it," Tägtgren laughs. "They asked me to play Wacken, but I told them I was sorry, that I didn't have time. I don't know where I'm going to be there with Pain or at another festival at the same time. They wanted to announce it as a really special thing, and I understand that, but (Dan) Swanö said that it was okay, they would do it with another singer, and if I have time I could step in. But, Mike is back, so I'm off."

"I don't know if I'll do another Bloodbath album," he continues. "It's up to them. If they want to do it with me, great. That's a killer album. People have been commenting on my voice on that album, and all I can say is that it was the songs that brought it out. I think you'll hear a bit of the same kind of vocals on the new Hypocrisy. Musically, there's going to be some faster stuff on it because we've got Horgh on drums. He's playing blastbeats that are faster than what he did with Immortal. We're never going to be a black metal band, but there are parts that are really fast and technical."
