bloodbath-fathomlessSweden’s Bloodbath is an extreme metal supergroup that’s had a revolving lineup of the country’s elite death metal talent since forming in 1998. Previous members included vocalist Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Pain) and multi-instrumentalist Dan Swanö (Edge of Sanity, Nightingale, Pan.Thy.Monium). Tägtgren was responsible for the gut-wrenching vocals of Bloodbath’s last full-length recording, the seminal Nightmares Made Flesh (2005). The Fathomless Mastery marks the return of the project’s original vocalist, Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt, who performed on the first release, 2002’s Resurrection Through Carnage. (He was also the vocalist on Katatonia’s Brave Murder Day and the Sounds of Decay EP) The current 2008 Bloodbath lineup is rounded out by guitarists Anders “Blakkheim” Nyström (Katatonia) and Per “Sodomizer” Eriksson (21 Lucifers), bassist Jonas Renkse (Katatonia) and drummer Martin “Axe” Axenrot (also of Opeth)..

The Fathomless Mastery follows the formula of the other two classic Bloodbath releases. The formula is simple: a devastating blend of old-school brutal death metal with an evil modernized twist, leaving nothing but carnage in the aftermath. (more…)
