Ah Bloodbath, this is the album that got me into Bloodbath and Bloodbath are the band that got me into death metal. Being a massive Opeth fan, even more so then than I am now, when I heard about a supergroup death metal band that included both Mikael Åkerfeldt and Martin Axenrot I had to check it out. This extended play was the first thing I listened to and I was hooked. I then went on to the full spectrum of death metal but less about me.

This first EP was just a taste of things yet to come with Bloodbath, recorded after Dan Swanö (Yes, the god of side projects: Edge of Sanity, Pan.Thy.Monium, Nightingale), Mikael Åkerfeldt (Opeth) and Anders Nyström (Katatonia) decided that they should form an ultimate death metal tribute band at a party, that's what you get; straight up Swedish death metal and while it's nothing super special, it's just pulled off really well on here and that's why I love it. Enjoy.

I also just realised the .zip file is incorrectly labeled as being released in 2002.
