No. 34: Bloodbath, ‘Eaten’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs
Most metalheads know Bloodbath due to the tenure of Opeth frontman Mikael Akerfeldt, who manned the Bloodbath helm for two studio albums and two EPs. However, Bloodbath’s trademark track was written by the extremely prolific Dan Swano and was sung by Hypocrisy vocalist Peter Tagtgren.
Written about the real-life German cannibal Armin Meiwes, ‘Eaten’ strives to delve into the mind of the willingly cannibalized victim Bernd Jurgen Brandes, conveying his sick perception through the lyrics of the prime cut.
