Children Of Bodom album update
Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM recently entered the studio to begin recording their new album for April 7, 2008.
The CD, which will feature a guest appearance by Peter Tägtgren of HYPOCRISY and PAIN fame, will be preceded by a single on March 3, 2008. Songtitles set to appear on the album include “Pray for the Devil”, “Good Morning Roadkill” and “Tie My Rope”.
CHILDREN OF BODOM bassist Henkka T. Blacksmith has checked in with the following studio update:
“Last week in studio. Alexi [Laiho, guitar/vocals] has been doing vocals with Peter Tägtgren this week. Janne [Wirman, keyboards] will finish his stuff now also, and by the end of the week everything should be fine. We will start mixing and mastering right away.
“We did nine tracks, including a new version of ‘Tie My Rope’, plus four cover songs. We will post the different formats as soon as these are confirmed with the different release dates. The actual album itself will contain nine CHILDREN OF BODOM tracks.
“The album will be called ‘Blooddrunk’.”
CHILDREN OF BODOM frontman Alexi Laiho has told Revolver magazine that he plunged into an alcohol stupor that lasted several months following the completion of the band’s two-year tour in support of 2005′s “Are You Dead Yet?” “I was so tired of everything and everybody,” he said. “I was just like, ‘Fuck this, I’m going to get drunk.”
“I was in a really aggressive mood, so I think the songs are thrashier and faster than the ones on ‘Are You Dead Yet?’” Laiho added. “It’s a faster album, but some of it is more progressive. You’ll just have to hear it.”
