Bloodbath Plan To Start Recording New Album In January

It looks like Bloodbath will begin the recording process for their new album towards the end of January. Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost) told Metal Wani the following [transcribed by Blabbermouth]:

“The [rest of the] guys are working on it now, so I think we’re looking at recording in the end of January. We’re looking at doing it maybe early February. So, yeah, we’ll definitely do another album. But we’ll see what happens. The guys in KATATONIA have been busy touring as well, so they’re pretty much winding up now — I think they’re playing Russia next week and then they’re finished for the year. So, yeah, at the end of January, I think, we’re gonna start now.”

Bloodbath & Autopsy To Release New Split 7″

Bloodbath and Autopsy will celebrating Peaceville‘s 30th anniversary with a new split 7″. The effort will be available on December 15, and it will feature Bloodbath’s cover of Cancer‘s “Blood Bath” and Autopsy’s cover of “Fuck You!!!” from the 1980s West Oakland group Bloodbath. You can preorder it HERE.

Bloodbath commented:

“Most of you would know this already, but for those of you who don’t, it was the title of the first song, on the first album by UK death metallers Cancer, which we originally lifted our band name from. Now with Peaceville celebrating its 30th anniversary, there would be no better token than offering this cover song to glorify the old school, brutal and trashy death metal legacy of Cancer fucking Cancer, once more! And as if it couldn’t get any better, we’ve the honor to split these seven inches with gore legends Autopsy who also bathe in their own blood!”

Autopsy added:

“‘Fuck You!!!‘ is a cover song of a cover song….and the only song we’ve ever considered covering. Eric and I loved the version that Danny‘s old band Bloodbath did before we even knew Danny, let alone knowing that he’d end up joining Autopsy. And Danny didn’t even know it was a cover song at the time! Got it? It’s a crazy world and a crazy song.

It’s also a cool tribute to Dane Petersen (R.I.P.), the original Bloodbath vocalist. We feel we gave it the treatment it deserved….now it’s up to you to crank it up and hold those middle fingers high!.”
