All members of Bloodbath perform with a passion and precision that only veterans of the scene and lovers of the genre could do, managing to make the Stockholm sound come across with a new found intensity and tightness while still culling all the genre’s best traits. The Fathomless Mastery is a masterpiece. Plain and simple.
