Biography

(1998 – present)

Bloodbath formed in 1998 when, one evening, friends Mikael Åkerfeldt, Anders Nyström, Jonas Renkse and Dan Swanö, had the idea to play death metal in the realm of Entombed, mixed with some of the US Florida death metal scene bands. Quite simply, Bloodbath was born out of this shared admiration for quality death metal in the old style & the guys quickly realized that they could churn some ugly metal out to a pretty high standard.

Mikael Åkerfeldt left Bloodbath about a year after the release of “Resurrection Through Carnage” because he wanted to focus on his more serious group Opeth, but he still performed with the band at Wacken 2006. He then returned to the band in 2008 and left again in 2012.
Peter Tägtgren replaced Mikael Åkerfeldt for the Nightmares Made Flesh release.

    Ive heard that the vocalist from torture division is the new vocalist for bloodbath, and he is in my opinion one of the best death metal vocalists out there. Let's just hope it's true =)

    Why so serious? this band started as a parallel project where all of them tried to do some kind of a death metal cliché parody. And it was brilliant, because this is the band that released some of the best death metal albums of the last decade (i mean pure death metal, not the Behemoth kind of death metal, if you know what i mean). We should be thankful for the existence of this band, to be honest.

    With so many musicians from great bands (Hypocrisy, Katatonia, Opeth...) I expected much more from theses guys.. Still enjoybable death metal but it's not a huge thing.

    Serbian Bloodbath is fucking killer. Toxic Death is fantastic.

    Also @TheWrathofThor, see what was posted earlier, Bloodbath are hardly original song writers.

    @TheWrathofThor That's because you probably only listen to cookie cutter bands from the U.S. and Sweden.

    For fucks sake why are there no other pure DM bands with as good song writing as these guys? Only other bands that compare are Vader, Behemoth and Nile. Have been listening to DM for the past 8 years but I swear I have never listened to more than 10 select bands because 95% of DM bands write music that would cure insomnia

    Bloodbath is so original: Mock The Cross = Where The Slime Live; Breeding Death = Immortal Rites; So You Die = Revel In Flesh.
