In anticipation of the release of their sixth studio album Survival of the Sickest, Bloodbath just unveiled the music video for their single “Carved.”
Featuring graphic descriptions of human experimentation and gore, the track features the kind of crushing death metal you’d expect from the Swedish death metal outfit. What sets this track apart, however, is the inclusion of the legendary talents of Gorguts‘ Luc Lemay to add his to the track.
Co-produced by the band and Lawrence Mackrory at Rorysound Studios, the band describes their upcoming album as “Florida death metal exported by Sweden.”
Survival of the Sickest is also the band’s first release with their new guitarist Tomas “Plytet” Åkvik (Lik) in the fold. Along with Lemay’s contribution, the LP also features additional cameos from the likes of Napalm Death‘s Barney Greenway and Marc Grewe, of Morgoth.

- Digisleeve CD Edition
