Earlier today, Bloodbath issued an announcement via their Facebook page, opening with the astonishing revelation that the band has already written ten new tracks. If that doesn’t have you running for your corpse paint, not only does it look like we’ll be destroyed by a new album soon but it will apparently be featuring a brand new vocalist. We can only guess at his identity but the benign souls over at Bloodbath have graced us with a few helpful clues:
“Still curious who’s gonna sing on this one? Well, we’ll leave you with these disasters to see if any of you smart-azzez can figure it out
Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors is found dead in his bathtub in Paris, France.

The new singer for Bloodbath is born. Oh dear.”
Our friends over at No Clean Singing have done some leg work, coming to the conclusion that the mystery singer is none other than Jörgen Sandström, vocalist for Torture Divison, formerly of Entombed and Grave fame. If that turns out to be correct, we can trust that the new album will have some truly brutal vocals to accompany the undoubtedly demolishing music we will be getting. One can only hope that this marks another bloody milestone in the illustrious career of these unapologetic kings of metal.
