Not much has been heard out of Bloodbath the group would soon have new music out. While that’s all well and good, the group has yet to reveal who the replacement vocalist is following Mikael Åkerfeldt’s departure. To get fans hyped up and tease the shit out of them, Bloodbath have posted the following to their Facebook page:
“UGHH! HEEEY! I SAID HEY! We got 10 songs down and we start recording drums next month!!! Still curious who’s gonna sing on this one? Well, we’ll leave you with these disasters to see if any of you smart-azzez can figure it out
Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors is found dead in his bathtub in Paris, France.
A cyclone in the Bay of Bengal, in the Indian state of Odisha, kills 10,000.
A fire at a 22-story hotel in Seoul, South Korea kills 158 people.
A stairway crush as crowds leave the Rangers vs. Celtic football match in Glasgow, results in 66 deaths.
A fire in a mental hospital at Burghölzli, Switzerland, kills 28 people.
A landslide at Chungar, Peru crashes into Lake Yanahuani, killing 200.
An earthquake lasting 20 seconds destroys most of Bingöl, Turkey – more than 1,000 are killed, 10,000 made homeless.
An air crash at Rijeka Airport, Yugoslavia kills 78 people, mostly British tourists.
The new singer for Bloodbath is born. Oh dear.”
Thanks to both MetalSucks and Metal Injection, it’s been determined that all of these horrific events occurred in 1971. A few names that have been put forward as potential vocalists born in that year include Jörgen Sandström (The Project Hate MCMXCIX, Krux), Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal), Paul Kuhr (November’s Doom), and Johan Edlund (Tiamat).
We should also mention a few other singers that were born in that year: Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish) and Jared Leto, though they both seem quite unlikely unless Olzen can growl. Kid Rock and Jonathan Davis were born that year too, but picking either of them seems like a better way to actually cause a bloodbath. Idina Menzel was also born then, but Bloodbath isn’t exactly the same deal as Rent or Wicked. Wow, Michael C. Hall was born that year! Could you imagine if the guy who played Dexter Morgan was the singer of a band called Bloodbath? We can dream.
