Published Mar 19, 2013Last year, long-running Finnish metal greats Children of Bodom got the new album rumours flowing when they announced a new deal with record label Nuclear Blast. Now, they've confirmed the details of their new full-length.
The release is called Halo of Blood and features 10 brand new tracks from the band. Band leader Alexi Laiho described the release with the following statement:
Halo of Blood is the 8th studio album from Children of Bodom and believe it or not but we still managed to keep it fresh and new while still maintaining the elements that make COB sound recognizable. Its got the fastest and the slowest song we ever made and lyrics wise there are themes we had never had before. Its 10 new songs of pure nordic metal and wether you enjoy it with a beer or a glass of water, I'm sure you will have a good time.
