Death Metal band from Stockholm, Sweden, formed in 1998.

Bloodbath was initially a fun side-project founded by Dan Swanö (drums), Anders Nyström (guitar), Jonas Renkse (bass) and Mikael Åkerfeldt (vocals), who started playing and writing songs influenced by the late 1980s / early 1990s Swedish and American Death Metal scene. The songs were released as the "Breeding Death" EP in 2000.

Having released their debut album "Resurrection Through Carnage" in 2002, Åkerfeldt left the band and was replaced by Peter Tägtgren for the recording of their second album "Nightmares Made Flesh". Martin Axenrot also joined the band as a new drummer and Swanö switched to guitar. As Tägtgren was unable to join the band fully due to conflicting schedules, Åkerfeldt was persuaded to rejoin the band for their first live performance in Wacken Open Air 2005. In 2006 Swanö was kicked out from the band due to musical differences.

In 2008 Åkerfeldt returned to to band again and a new guitarist was found in Per “Sodomizer” Eriksson. The same year they released the "Unblessing The Purity" EP and "The Fathomless Mastery" full-length album. In April 2012 Åkerfeldt quit the band for good.

In September 2014 Nick Holmes was introduced as the band's new vocalist and "Grand Morbid Funeral" album was released in November. Eriksson left the band in 2017 and was replaced by Joakim Karlsson in 2018 for their fifth album "The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn". Karlsson left the group in 2019.
