BLOODBATH Premiere New Lyric Video for 'Bloodicide'
The fifth full-length studio release from the Swedish masters BLOODBATH, The Arrow of Satan Is Drawn, is to be released on October 26th 2018 via Peaceville Records. Watch the first track 'Bloodicide' below, feat. guests Jeff Walker (Carcass), Karl Willetts (Bolt Thrower) & John Walker (Cancer). Video created by Philippe Blain.
The track was penned by vocalist Old Nick (Nick Holmes), who explains his choice of guests "The lads play a part in representing the backbone of the old school British Death Metal scene, which has also been a big influence on Bloodbath since the beginning."
Excited to be a part of the band’s new opus, Carcass' Jeff Walker commented "I owed Nick a tenner, so he told me instead of sending the bailiffs round he would kindly let me pay off my debt by contributing vocals to his new album. Imagine my great disappoint when I found out it wasn’t for THAT band but, was in fact for BLOODBATH. I have great faith in him that my vocals will be lower than his in the mix."
Karl Willetts of Bolt Thrower adds "I have known Nick Holmes for over 30 years - so when he asked me to do some vocals for the new Bloodbath album how could I refuse? The opportunity to do things like this in life don’t often come twice so I am really pleased to contribute in a small way to this legendary opus!"
John Walker (Cancer) - "Bloodbath is an amazing band and I've had the chance to do some vocals for their new, killer album along with Jeff Walker and Karl Willetts. It's been a bloody honour and a lot of fun!!"
