Bloodbath announce Paradise Lost-Nick Holmes as their new singer
Anders “Blakkheim” Nyström has said in several interviews that Bloodbath had already a new singer but he wasn’t allowed to reveal his name, due to the lack of contract. He did say “Oh, he’s a legend!” but no one expected that legend to be Nick Holmes of Paradise Lost. The news hit us this morning via Metal Hammer, with the following quotes:
“Ever since I got into Lost Paradise back in 1990,” says Jonas Renkse, “Nick Holmes has been one of my favourite growling vocalists out there. He was always audible and articulate but still deep and definitely morbid. It is a great pleasure to work with him some 25 years later after I was introduced to his thunderous roar!”
“Little did I expect to be working with the voice behind the death metal classic Lost Paradise, or the genre-defining Gothic and yet here we are decades later, fulfilling another death metal dream. With his sinister and ominous vocal delivery, it’s an absolute pleasure to make Old Nick the bell-ringer in Bloodbath‘s grand morbid funeral!”, adds Blakkheim.
Like they say, it’s been almost 25 years since “Lost Paradise” and everybody knows that Paradise Lost doesn’t use growls anymore. Is “Old Nick” still up to it? Let’s wait and see!
