Exclusive Full Album Stream: Bloodbath's Grand Morbid Funeral - MetalSucks
so after listening to it, i must say i'm not dissapointed. the vocals are a mixed bag ranging from ok to bad but i've gotten used to them. the riffs were the main reason why i was interested in this album. and it certainly delivers there. massive, fast, chunky and groovy while being slightly melodic here and there. the tone is gnarly as heck. having said that this is yet another swedeath band that is making something that a zillion other bands are doing. but bloodbath does right by the whole swedeath sound and the members experience shows. they deliver a pretty good experience overall barring a couple of songs. certainly an enjoyable album IMO.
Listened to this on the way to work this morning and I'm fucking loving it. Like you said, the guitar tone is incredible - it's so god damn filthy and grimy sounding.
I actually liked the vocals more than I did when I heard the first couple of tracks they released, for some reason. I still prefer Tagtgren, but these fit the overall vibe of the album pretty well.
The drumming is killer too, which is no surprise with Axenrot behind the kit.
