The album also seem to have charted various positions on almost any other writer’s and reader’s year end poll of 2008, so it seems Bloodbath made it clear that real death metal is to be reckoned with! Cheers and thanks for the support!
The days are cold and will remain so a long while for many of us. We decided to revive the zipper hoodie and go beyond the simple Bloodbath logo this time around. We have striking original artwork by Alex Norman printed on a high quality black 100% cotton American Apparel zipper hoodie. Artwork features the Bloodbath logo with a vicious skull and snake design beneath, dripping in blood. See the design in closer detail. American Apparel hoodies are generally a little smaller than other brands, view this size chart to choose the proper size for you. Printed on the left side of the hoodie.
PRE-ORDER NOW. This item will begin shipping week of January 12th
To all our christian fans worldwide!
Different languages, but all sentiments we won’t argue with! So what did the rest of the press have to say about the new Bloodbath album? Well, if we posted all the reviews you’d have to scroll all down south of heaven, so for a briefer summary we just leave you with some of the review scores.
We have just learned that our latest shirt design (front, back) has run into some controversy. Actually, It’s been a bit of a rocky road from the start with this one. Back at the sketch board, some of our art direction ideas were met by hesitation and according to the designer would feel “uncomfortable to do”. However, the design went through and obviously with such a fantastic piece of artwork and beautiful symbolism the t-shirt has hit home with Bloodbath’s audience all over the world, but apparently a demon vomiting on Jesus on a cross, surrounded by snakes, vultures and skulls was over the line for some confused ” death metal” fans. Perhaps they should ask themselves if it was really death metal they were searching for in the first place. Here are examples of some Dr Phil approved quotes we recieved:
To top it off, we also just recieved the following message from Raw Talent, the printer of the merchandise:
With that said, let’s get the weak aside and the Bloodbath choir ready to mock the fucking cross again as we moved on to a new printer for our latest over the top ‘Iesous’ shirt design. Original artwork by Alex Norman features a detailed drawing of a dead Jesus with a crown of thorns and blind eyes, bleeding crosses in the background on both sides, and his hair engulfing skulls and the Bloodbath logo. The back features a cross dripping in blood with the lyrics: “Eeso Yeshua Iesous Die by Our Rage”. The design was also printed using a technique which results in the ink becoming one with the fabric, creating a soft vintage look and feel. Not a shirt to miss, grab one now!
If you haven’t already checked out the new sick shirt design, do it now because we pulled out all the stops on this one. The original artwork was done by Jeff Finley and features a winged demon vomiting on Jesus on a cross, surrounded by snakes, vultures on tree and a ton of fine detail to be found, capped by the Bloodbath logo on top. The back features the text “Mock the Cross” with the demon from the front in red. The design was also printed using a technique which results in the ink becoming one with the fabric, creating a soft vintage look and feel. Not a shirt to miss, so grab one now!
There are also rumours saying that Bloodbath might shoot a video for one of the songs off The Fathomless Mastery and we can confirm that to be true. Stay tuned to find out what song it will be and much more.
Also, don’t forget to go vote for Bloodbath (and much more) in the 2008 Terrorizer’s readers poll!

The only two summer festival apperances for 2008 are now behind us and heres what vocalist Mike had to say about it:
As the two only live apperances for 2008 are done, we’ve decided to put up some of the more “laundry unfriendly” stage oufits for auction. If you want to own a piece of death metal history and collectibles exclusively made only for this occassion, now here’s your chance to grab all five bloodbath members ripped, torn, blood drenched and mud caked t-shirts as seen worn live at both shows.
Bloodbath’s third full-length album has been entitled The Fathomless Mastery and is currently mixed due for an October 6th release on Peaceville records. 11 songs total including At the behest of their death, Mock the cross, Iesous, Wretched human mirror, Treasonous, Devouring the feeble, Hades rising, Slaughtering the will to live, Earthrot, Process of disillumination, Drink from the cup of heresy.
