Death Metal Supergroup BLOODBATH Signs With NAPALM RECORDS

April 26, 2022

BLOODBATH, the Swedish/British death metal supergroup which features in its ranks KATATONIA's Jonas Renkse and Anders Nyström, along with ex-OPETH drummer Martin "Axe" Axenrot and PARADISE LOST frontman Nick Holmes, has signed a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records.

Formed in 1998 to spread their ruthless old-school death metal in the likes of early ENTOMBED spliced with hints of U.S.-style death metal, BLOODBATH released its first three-track EP, titled "Breeding Death", in 1999, followed by the critically acclaimed first full-length, the brutal "Resurrection Through Carnage", in 2002.

With its fifth record, 2018's "The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn", BLOODBATH conjured its latest relentless storm of chaos, driven by explosive death, thrash and black metal and hailed by fans and critics alike. Teaming up with Napalm Records, BLOODBATH is now more than ready to take the band to the next level.

BLOODBATH commented on the signing: "Just as we're about to enter our next exciting chapter of BLOODBATH, we're pleased to say that the band is in the good hands of a new label. By joining forces with the mighty Napalm Records, BLOODBATH will proudly make sure our old-school death metal continues to pummel onwards and upwards. Let the Napalm rain!"

Sebastian Münch, Napalm Records A&R, added: "BLOODBATH could be simply described as a super-group and the title would be 100% correct. However, the essence of BLOODBATH lies in their endless talent to create death metal magic. Death metal as pure and wonderful as very few bands are capable of. BLOODBATH, we are absolutely proud and honored to welcome you to the Napalm family!"
