5.0 out of 5 stars Superb modern old school Death Metal, 6 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Resurrection Through Carnage (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.
