“I wanted to keep it really simple and uncomplicated whilst retaining an evil groovy drive to make the song engage in headbanging action and sing along exercises," 
explains guitarist Anders 'Blakkheim' Nystrom. "Having started a ‘red’ thread, I then locked in the chainsaw concept as a dual tribute to the Boss HM-2 guitar pedal sound as well as my love for the horror slasher genre and had both the music and lyrics going at the same time. I’ve always been a fan of lyrical paradoxes and the song title was just waiting to happen.”

BLOODBATH will be playing live in Europe in November and December as they join KreatorDimmu Borgir & Hatebreed on the European Apocalypse tour.

The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn is a new slab of old-school, HM-2 driven blackness, recorded by BLOODBATH and Karl Daniel Liden, at Ghost Ward, City Of Glass & Tri-Lamb Studios, and is the second with Old Nick on vocals. If their previous Grand Morbid Funeral was a thick spray of deathly noise, The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn is the rotten, fetid state of the world and our inevitable doom that is casting a looming shadow over proceedings. With world leaders threatening nuclear annihilation in 140 characters over social media, capitalism tearing itself apart, a wilful march into a surveillance state via handy pocket spying devices, a shifting climate that appears to literally be trying to kill us, it’s all fuelled BLOODBATH's newest ode to filth.


Old Nick – vocals
Blakkheim – guitar
