Mikael Akerfeldt Quits Bloodbath



http://legacy.roadrunnerrecords.com/...sitemID=172549

Quote:
Vocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt of Swedish progressive metallers OPETH has left the death metal supergroup BLOODBATH. "They have a new singer, which I can't say who it is," Mikael tells Loudwire.

He continued, "BLOODBATH, for me, was never a serious project, it was just something I did for fun. We did a few songs on the last North American tour, we did two songs at the very last show [see video below. — Ed.] because we were touring with KATATONIA, so the whole BLOODBATH band was there. It's still fun, you know? But I think that some of the other guys in BLOODBATH want to take it to the next level, which I don't really want to do because I'm so busy anyways."

He added, "It doesn't really have to do with anything with my screaming vocals, it's just that it's not a progressive project for me. It's just paying tribute to death metal and I've done it for such a long time. And when it stops being fun, I don't really want to participate. We do things so rarely it's always been fun. The shows we've done have been fun, but I don't feel the need to do it."

Not surprising, and it will definitely be a good thing for the band. I don't think they will bring back Peter though. He already has a lot on his plate with rotating back and forth between Hypocrisy and Pain.

That would be awesome on record but he can't growl on tour. Like Jonas.

Peter is working on a new Hypocrisy record and Pain is bigger now than ever...


So I say Jorgen Sandstrom from The Project Hate/Grave's first two albums

OR

the dude from My Own Grave

Thank God this finally happened. Every other member of the band seems to really care for it but Mikael admittedly didn't really give a shit. Hopefully an aspect of "taking the band to the next level" is a U.S. tour

Well yes, thank God, aside from the fact that Mikael was a very fundamental piece of the band's awesomeness.

Nevertheless I hope this all turns out well.
