Honestly I don't think he was that fundamental. I mean, it's cool that he was in the band, but the fact that Nightmares Made Flesh kicked ass without him involved shows they will be just fine.

It did, indeed, but still. That's replacing one of the greatest extreme metal vocalists with another.

How many men are capable of such a fine job as substitute?

They hardly released material, and they all had their own side projects.

Akerfeldt grunts were perfect for Bloodbath IMHO.

Thiiiiiiiis. Even as an Akerfeldt fanboy, this is for the best. Never liked his vocals for Bloodbath in the first place.

I agree 100%. As much as I FUCKING LOVE Bloodbath, they are not the same without Akerfedt.

This Akerfeldt fanboy disapproves.

I essentially break it down like this:

Peter T.: Sounds crazy, insane.

Mikael A: Sounds like PURE FUCKING EVIL.


Both are great, but only one can be the true voice of Bloodbath. Kind of like Ripper vs. Barlow.


Yeah, Ripper's great. But Barlow is king.

Same shit goes for Akerfeldt.

Have you listened to Bloodbath Over Bloodstock?

I believe him when he says his vocals aren't the main reason why he is leaving the band, but I'm sure it was probably still a bit of a factor.

It was never more than a "supergroup project", so I don't understand the fuss.

On metalfan.nl it was even said that Akerfeldt "has sank very deep: first no more death metal for Opeth (which was never a pure death metal band anyway but you know, trolls) and now this".
