Bloodbath - Launch 'Bloodicide' Lyric Video

"Bloodicide" is the first track to be taken from Bloodbath's new album, The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn, set for release on October 26th via Peaceville Records. The song features guests Jeff Walker (Carcass), Karl Willetts (Bolt Thrower) and John Walker (Cancer). Watch the lyric video, animated by Philippe Blain, below.

The track was penned by vocalist Old Nick (Nick Holmes), who explains his choice of guests: "The lads play a part in representing the backbone of the old school British Death Metal scene, which has also been a big influence on Bloodbath since the beginning."

Excited to be a part of the band's new opus, Carcass' Jeff Walker commented: "I owed Nick a tenner, so he told me instead of sending the bailiffs round he would kindly let me pay off my debt by contributing vocals to his new album. Imagine my great disappoint when I found out it wasn't for THAT band but, was in fact for Bloodbath. I have great faith in him that my vocals will be lower than his in the mix."

Karl Willetts of Bolt Thrower adds: "I have known Nick Holmes for over 30 years - so when he asked me to do some vocals for the new Bloodbath album how could I refuse? The opportunity to do things like this in life don't often come twice so I am really pleased to contribute in a small way to this legendary opus!"

John Walker (Cancer) - "Bloodbath is an amazing band and I've had the chance to do some vocals for their new, killer album along with Jeff Walker and Karl Willetts. It's been a bloody honour and a lot of fun!!"

Old Nick
Correct me if I'm wrong but I think all three guests are only heard in the chorus. What's the point in bringing three iconic death metal vocalists in the studio if they are only going to sing one line each?

The song is not bad though.

Is it me or Holmes' growls are slowly improving after The Plague Within?
By blood... Resurrection?
By body... Redemption?
By God... Domination?
By Pilate... Crucifixion!

I did not enjoy the last album that much, but this is pretty awesome! Vocals are much better. I hope the album follows this pattern.
