Bloodbath put on an old school death metal clinic with “Putrefying Corpse”

The latest from Survival of the Sickest welcomes a special guest assist from Barney Greenway of Napalm Death.

Riding the groundswell of momentum from the release of the band’s sixth full length studio album, Survival of the Sickest just two weeks ago, death metal practitioners Bloodbath have submitted what could arguably be the most dynamic track from the album with the release of the video for Putrefying Corpse”.

A caustic combination of death, black and thrash accents, the track embraces the morbid sensibilities of old school death metal, with the menacing delivery that can only be executed by the seasoned crew of extreme metal lifers. Comprised of current and former members of institutions like Paradise Lost, Opeth, Katatonia and Lik, the prowess of Bloodbath is on full display on the latest single.

Adding in a special guest assist from the one and only Barney Greenway of the almighty Napalm Death, Bloodbath have again asserted their lofty rank among the ranks of the undergrounds most’s respected contributors.

In true, old school death metal fashion, Bloodbath’s Nick Holmes shared of the single’s thematic horrors, “The process of human life with a soul and humility, to eventual death, as nothing but rotting meat for vermin.”


Survival of The Sickest landed earlier this month and was received with universal praise. Well praised by both fans and critics, the 11-track onslaught also includes additional special guest contributions from the likes of Luc Lemay of Gorguts and Marc Grewe of Morgoth – further reiterating Bloodbath’s initial assessment of the project, “If there was a declaration of goods attached to this album, it would say Florida death metal exported from Sweden.”
