Swedish death metal supergroup Bloodbath have confirmed that Nick Holmes, known primarily from his work in Paradise Lost, will be their new vocalist, with his debut appearance to be on upcoming new full length ‘Grand Morbid Funeral’:
The band have commented ‘ Ever since we got into ‘Lost Paradise’ back in 1990, Nick Holmes has been one of our favorite growling vocalists out there. He was always audible and articulate but still deep and definitely morbid. It is a great pleasure to work with him some 25 years later after being introduced to his thunderous roar!
Little did we expect to be working with the voice behind the death metal classic ‘Lost Paradise’, or the genre-defining ‘Gothic’ and yet here we are decades later, fullfiling another death metal dream. With his sinister and ominous vocal delivery, it’s an absolute pleasure to make Old Nick the bell-ringer in BLOODBATH’s ‘Grand Morbid Funeral’! ‘
‘Grand Morbid Funeral’ drops November 17th via Peaceville Records.
