5.0 out of 5 stars Superb modern old school Death Metal 6 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
The main thing most people know about Bloodbath is that they’re Mikael Akerfeldt from Opeth’s ‘other’ band. True enough, but they’re actually a wicked band all of their own right. They don’t actually sound anything like Opeth though, so anyone after a bit of prog-inspired Metal is going to be disappointed by this. It’s a record of pure old school, Sunlight-style Death Metal in the vein of Dismember or early Entombed, and it absolutely rules! If you’re any kind of a Death Metal fan, you should check this record out because you will definitely like it. The finest single feature about it is probably the rhythm guitar sound; if you imagine a rusty chainsaw with pick-ups attached to it, you’ll be halfway there. It sounds like Exhorder playing Death Metal, and it’s brilliant. Also, Akerfeldt’s vocals are fantastic. He doesn’t do any clean singing like he does so successfully in his main band, it’s growls all the way, but the growls are much more aggressive and sick sounding than they ever are on an Opeth album. If you thought ‘Demon Of The Fall’ sounded nasty, check this out and see what the man is capable of. As well as this, throw in the always welcome presence of Dan Swano on the drums and add some of the finest Death Metal songwriting you could ever ask for and you’ll end up with one of the best extreme Metal albums of the last few years. Brilliant stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars A treasured piece of music indeed 18 Dec 2002
By Matthew
Format:Audio CD
The combined force of the guitar and bass on this disc is so intensly crushing! - imagine a hoard of oversized steamrollers on nitro swarming madly with evil intent. There seems to be this dirty sound present in the guitars' mix this time, I like it - sounds best on headphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word: Incredible 7 Oct 2003
By S. Morales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Now, if you've read a lot of my other reviews you'll notice one thing: giving a full 5 stars to a record isn't something I do a lot, and I only give it to those VERY VERY few and far between albums where every single song on the album is good, and you could listen to it straight through and not want to skip anything! Then afterwards, you'll want to play it again and again! Resurrection Through Carnage by BloodBath is one of these albums. (The only other albums I can think of where this is evident is Opeth's "Blackwater Park", Metallica's "Master of Puppets", NIN's "The Downward Spiral" and years ago with Offspring's "Smash.")
Michael Akerfeldt once again proves he is the GREATEST living metal musician (maybe even just musician) around today. Though I shouldn't give just him all the credit, cause he's also got the members of Katatonia (I should give them a listen) backing him up. This album is brutal, intelligent, and overall fun as hell to listen to. I can't pick a favorite song on this one because they're all good in their own ways, although track 5 "Buried by the Dead" does stand out somewhat. This is death metal, yes. When most people think of Death Metal they think of bands like Cannibal Corpse and Six Feet Under, unfortunately (even though I do like cannibal corpse) these bands do set a stereotype for death metal, and makes people who don't like or understand death to put it down even more as just being senseless unmelodic guitar strums, overdone blast beats and cookie monster undecipherable vocals which talk about death and mutilation in a way to just shock you, not to sound intelligent. This is not the case with BloodBath.
These guy's guitar riffs are tight, heavy and loud. But not just that, there is actually melody to the guitar leads! Yes, Non-In Flames type death metal with actual melodic guitar leads, though if you listen to this you won't catagorize this as "melodic death metal" like In Flames or Arch Enemy, this is DEATH METAL. The leads on this disc are awesome, and even though they are melodic, they are very dark and evil sounding as well. The whole album just seems to have been produced in the deepest pits of hell, it's killer! Production? You couldn't dream of better production, because every instrument and vocal is 100 percent audible, bass and drums have never sounded better on a death metal record. I should give extra kudos to the guitar distortion sound- I've never heard anything like it!! It's not typical distortion; it's dirty, crunchy and packed with powerful bass giving something that sounds like a darker death version of Alice in Chains. Amazing sound! Lyrical content? Akerfeldt doesn't need to use curse words to sound morbid or evil, because the lyrics are intelligent sounding but at the same time give you a better picture in your head of the brutality the songs talk about without having to use perverted language unlike other bands who just feel the need to mention private body parts being mutilated, like, cannibal corpse.
Overall, the biggest reason I find this record so fun is due to it's integrity. These guys just came together, wrote some AMAZING death songs and put it on a record for fun, and with the intention of fun for the fans, you can tell it doesnt take itself too seriously, yet seriously enough for good music's sake. So in conclusion, if you're a fan of metal (of any kind) and appreciate some death metal or are curious of getting into the genre, you must, must, MUST, MUUUUUSSST own this record, it's worth every penny! Phenomenal by all standards and quite possibly the greatest death record ever!! Why are you still reading this review, go buy this!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable 7 Dec 2002
By "snuffed" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When a freind of mine started getting me into death metal (grew up a speed/thrash fan) some bands were better and easier to get used to than others. Let's face it - there's some great stuff but there's too much thats below average or more of the same.
I bought this Bloodbath CD on the recommendation of a small metal store owner and have since stopped buying anything new for a while because there is NO WAY it will compare to this album. Blistering, in-your-face, kicked-in-the-teeth metal. Every aspect of it is perfect from the production quality to the clarity of the growling vocals (you can understand what this guy has to say on the first listen and it ain't pretty), to the buzzsaw guitars that will shake your subs.
Truly old-school approach with the new intensity and production. I think someone just getting into death metal should check Bloodbath out first but be warned: you won't find many other works as good as this one without going for the classic stuff. The experience of the guys that make up the band shows, and some of these newer acts should get the hint that they can do far better than what they have so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE DEATH METAL FAN 19 Nov 2002
By "holeinthesky2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The singing let alone the death screams are amazing.
The lyrics are extreme and dark; yet with purpose.
The music is the BEST old style Death Metal I have ever heard!!
All together they flow like Blood red Wine .
If your into true top level Death Metal you must buy this album!!
If you are into so called nu-metal; then this is far beyond your understanding and you should just walk away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncompromsing 17 Nov 2002
By Stuart Charlton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Every time I listen to this album, I want to start a mosh pit. In my living room. In the car. On the subway. It's 41 minutes that makes you forget everything about sanity.
Bloodbath, Sweden's new "supergroup" with members of Opeth, Katakonia, and Dan Swano, has had a lot of hype surrounding this release. And unlike most hyped bands, in this case I truly think the hype is warranted. A mix of old school death with the groove of swedish (e.g. Entombed) metal. Dan Swano's touch is clear throughout this album's production and tremendous drumwork. Mikael Akerfeldt's vocals show just how intense this man can get, contrasted with the emotional variance in his main act, Opeth.
Around 45 seconds into the first track, "Ways to the Grave", this album greets you with a full body assault of guitars dripping with raw dirt and crunch. It's one of the best guitar sounds I've heard in ages. And it does not let up until the end of the album. This album makes me think this is what a death metal Slayer - "Reign in Blood" would sound like. It's exhausting, but worth the entire listen - the final track, "Cry My Name", is perhaps one of the biggest highlights of the album, with a tremendously powerful chorus.
In summary: It's the death metal album to beat in 2002.
Minor quibbles: good luck reading the liner notes and lyrics. Cool font, but it's very small and red-on-black.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Death Metal Classic 14 Feb 2008
By James F. Colobus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Several years ago, I was milling around the balcony of a small venue in Pittsburgh waiting for a concert by the dream team of Paradise Lost and Opeth to begin. Several rather menacing college students approached me, including a towering gentleman with a shaved head and goatee. Fearing they had targeted me for a random act of violence, I was relieved to find they simply wanted to know which band I was there to see. When I replied that I was almost equally eager to see both bands, I quickly found myself quickly integrated into their little group for the evening, even if I didn't share their view that Paradise Lost had `sold out' when Nick Holmes abandoned his early death metal vocal style. Upon discovering my work often took me to Africa, the hulking guy at the center of the group launched into a shockingly informed soliloquy on the social and economic problems plaguing the continent. He then claimed to be the starting nose guard for Pitt's nationally ranked football team, and lamented that his teammates rarely let him blast death metal in the locker room. After quizzing me about my favorite Opeth albums and my history as a death metal fan dating back to the early 90s, he suggested that I check out Bloodbath, a side project featuring Michael Akerfeldt he was sure I'd like.

The concert that night lived up to my expectations, though I was dismayed to see the treatment Paradise Lost received from some of the younger Opeth fans who jeered them. Opeth fans are among the most notoriously snobby metal fans, but it was sad to see their lack of respect for Paradise Lost, one of the greatest metal bands of all time. I was happy that at least my new friends applauded Paradise Lost even though the band focused primarily on their newer material. After Paradise Lost finished their set, Opeth put on a great show as well, much to the delight of everyone in attendance.

A few days after the concert, I recalled the recommendation the football player had made to me regarding Bloodbath. I looked up Bloodbath on Amazon.com and ordered Resurrection Through Carnage soon thereafter. I also googled the football player and it turned out he'd been telling the truth - he was indeed starting nose guard on Pitt's team as well as a two-time Academic All-American. The latter explained the facility with which he spoke about the problems besetting Africa. Despite metal's popular perception as music for morons, there are many intelligent and erudite metal fans out there.

When Resurrection Through Carnage arrived, I discovered quickly that it more than satisfied the old-school death metal fan in me. Chunky riffs, double kick drums, and garbled cookie monster vocals made it an instant favorite. But the attention to catchy song structure is what has over time elevated the album to classic status in my mind. The album is a model of consistency in a genre where filler is sometimes a problem. Still, Resurrection Through Carnage is not without its highlights. One of these highlights is the very first track, "Ways to the Grave", which begins with a slow, tense build-up that transitions into a classic death metal groove. The sudden transition into the guitar solo around the two-minute mark is also extremely pleasing, as is the abrupt ending consisting of a brief guttural vocal spasm. Additional favorites are "Death Delirium" with its catchy chorus and "Buried By the Dead", propelled by its great surging Unleashed-inspired riff. Yet another highlight is the dizzying "Bathe in Blood" whose powerful chorus erupts out of nowhere on two and only two occasions during the song - be patient and you will be rewarded by this song.

Resurrection Through Carnage hearkens back to a day when death metal was novel and `fun'. I'd prefer you didn't take the lyrics too seriously - I certainly never have. Bloodbath consists of several modern metal legends having fun with the music of their youth and inviting you to do the same. After receiving some good advice, I'm glad I accepted their invitation.
