Bloodbath have released a few details about their upcoming album, Grand Morbid Funeral, which will be released on November 17th via Peaceville.
The album will feature an as-yet-unannounced new singer, who will be replacing Opeth‘s Mikael Akerfeldt as the band’s permanent vocalist, we’re told. They’ve done a heck of a job keeping the identity of the new singer quiet, given that Akerfeldt left almost two years ago now. Of the new album, guitarist Anders ‘Blakkheim’ Nystrom says that fans can expect “destructive, raw, heavy, organic, and sludgy death metal.”
He went on to say that “We’re proud of all these different styled releases and we loved doing each and every one of them, but the objective was never to settle with a certain style, so our time has come to shift once more. It was already decided right after the last album that the next record would not become The Fathomless Mastery part two, but in certain aspects it would actually become its antithesis.”
The album’s tracklist has yet to be revealed, but the band have confirmed that they’ll be appearing at a few festivals in 2015, including Norway’s Inferno, and the Maryland Deathfest in the States.
