    I think it's just time for Bloodbath to call it quits. Even though Mike left, they still have to contend with Opeth's schedule on some level because of Axe. Then again, if Mike was holding them down more than just Opeth's schedule, I could be wrong.

    Really, I want Bloodbath to split so Anders will record a new Diabolical Masquerade, haha.

    Alteredmindeath, Don't you have lame board games to sell? XD


    Dude can write whatever he wants and the fact of the matter is he doesn't owe you, I or anyone an explanation. I think you've misused the phrase 'sold-out,' because that implies a monetary exchange took place. He's not writing the things he's writing to make more money, (if anything he's lost money from alienating his fan base), it seems like he's just moved on from metal because after two and a half decades he's bored. Look at the man's list of influences...the shift to prog was inevitable.

    Åkerfeldt hate is en vogue.

    is it weird i read this in his voice? (in my head)

    new diabolical masquerade would be awesome :(

    i liked BB better when they sounded like entombed :(. but i enjoy that a lot of people like them now, bloodbath got me into death metal, and im sure it will get a lot more.

    Sad, as Bloodbath is my favorite death metal band.

    Mike is still the man though.

    To me the most important point here is the new vocalist. I don't know how much I trust the article but if a new vocalist is in the fold I'd love to know who it is. I still prefer Peter's songs over Mike's, but I'm pretty certain he is not the new replacement. If they have a new vocalist and are intending to move full speed ahead as the article indicates I'm going to get excited. I am hoping they backtrack the sound a little though, The Fathomless Mastery was pretty good but to me nothing stood out like it did on Ressurection Through Carnage or Nightmares Made Flesh

    They have never been a full force band so why should they quit now?!
    Screw Diabolical Masquerade! Havent you seen the Kata-interview where they ask Anders about DM? To me it looked like hes done with that.

    Yes, wonder who it is. Lots of good growlers out there today.
    I hope we get a new album next year.

    Having Peter back would be nice, although i don't see it happening myself.

    This could be great news...His growls have sucked the last two years or so but he was talking on a new more old school, autopsy like direction for bloodbath on the latest dvd and now we will probably get a new boring album like the fathomless mastery....I would love to be proved wrong though....

    There is more stuff going on on TFM than any other BB-album, so "boring" is not an accurate judgement.

    I don't like any of the songs on it, no memorable riffs, lyrics or anything....so yeah boring is a perfect world for it :)

    I'm surprised you feel that way about TFM, I love all of Bloodbaths stuff, but I think the stuff I like least is probably Unblessing the Purity.

    I seriously can't stand Peter in Hypocrisy...but I love Nightmares.
    I think my preference looks like this: Nightmares>Unblessing>Ressurection>Fathomless>Breeding
