With all the rumours that’s been wildfiring the last couple of days people have been questioning the current and future status of Bloodbath, so here’s the deal. Mikael Åkerfeldt has officially left Bloodbath. We know this might come as a surprise to some of you, but the rest of us in Bloodbath have been well aware for a long time already that Mike wanted out again. This was made to be made public sooner or later and if you’re curious to know more about why Mike is leaving and his vibes in general you can read his own words here. Mike, our best buddy and death metal vocal god has been a tremendous force in Bloodbath and we thank him for all the good and fun times on stage and in the studio we shared with this side-project since the formation in 1998.
Now, we’ve already been getting a lot of submissions from Bloodbath fans who are looking to replace Mike and we thank you for the interest and offering your talents, but hereby, we want to confirm that our decision to make another album with a new singer is already being prepared since a while. We we will let you know in due time who the new singer is and also details on our musical/lyrical concept that has also already ben set in stone. Expect the exciting things to happen in 2013.

We know everyone is eager to know what’s going on in the Bloodbath camp and unfortunately we still do not have any exciting news on the situation regarding the next album. Please be patient as time will sort this out eventually and we will return with our most ugly, dark and brutal work to date, but in the meanwhile we thought we’d offer you something almost as exciting. We’ve made two spin-off designs of two of our all-time fave horror movies, The Omen and Damien and they turned out to be the coolest merch we’ve seen in quite a while. Pre-order each or both now for a January 16th shipping.

The Fathomless Mastery was originally released in 2008 and hailed as another masterpiece of brutal, blasphemous Metal, with a definite nod to the masters of the scene, such as Morbid Angel and Entombed flowing throughout the tracks.
This edition of the album includes 4 tracks from the deleted Unblessingthe Purity EP. Recorded in Summer 2007, Unblessing The Purity was a ferocious storm of unadulterated Death Metal fury. All the highly sought after tracks from this sold out pressing are now included on this release.
Another teaser from the brand new “Bloodbath Over Bloodstock” DVD has been released. You all should be familiar with this song! The DVD is released on Monday. Order it directly from the Bloodbath store or get it in your local shop!
