On side B there's an etched picture which is laser-manufactured and "simply looks killer," according to the band.You can pre-order the item at this location. "Hades Rising", the latest video from BLOODBATH, can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Owe Lingwall of Village Road Film. The band's performance footage was shot on location in Vallentuna outside Stockholm and "can be summoned up as some serious headbanging with lots of blood, real messy and death metal dandy!" according to the group. "The rest of the plot/storyline [was] filmed in Umeå where the footage [was also edited]." "The Fathomless Mastery", the most recent studio album from BLOODBATH, sold around 1,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD debuted at No. 45 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. "The Fathomless Mastery" was previously described by the band as representing "nothing but hateful brutality." Promising its "most crushing production yet," the group's lineup on "The Fathomless Mastery" is the same as that on BLOODBATH's "Unblessing the Purity" mini-CD, which came out in March 2008: Mikael Åkerfeldt (OPETH) - Vocals
Martin "Axe" Axenrot (OPETH) - Drums
Anders "Blakkheim" Nyström (KATATONIA) - Guitar
