Bloodbath are an extreme metal supergroup from Stockholm, Sweden. Formed in 2000 with a mutual fascination for the glory days of death metal, the band’s line up boasts an all-star cast.
Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse (Katatonia), Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth) and musician and producer extraordinaire Dan Swanö are joined by Martin “Axe” Axenrot, also from Opeth, for The Wacken Carnage.
The Wacken Carnage is a CD + DVD set featuring the band on scintillating form at a very rare live appearance captured on August 6th 2005 at the infamous Wacken Festival, Germany, with the unmistakable vocal prowess of Mikael Akerfeldt backed up by a solid wall of buzzsaw riffing.
