CHILDREN OF BODOM Post Third Halo of Blood Track-By-Track BreakdownFriday, 31st May 2013
Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM have posted the third in a series of track-by-track breakdowns for their forthcoming eighth album, Halo of Blood. The video breakdown can be viewed below. Halo of Blood will be released on June 11 in North America by Nuclear Blast Records.
The new album was recorded at Danger Johnny Studios in Helsinki. For the recording of the LP, CHILDREN OF BODOM has teamed up with recording engineer Mikko Karmila, who worked with the band on their fan-favorite albums Hatebreeder, Follow The Reaper and Hate Crew Deathroll, as well as Swedish producer Peter Tägtgren (MARDUK, AMON AMARTH), who oversaw production of both vocals and keyboards on the record. The album was mixed at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki.
Commented Laiho: “Halo of Blood is the eighth 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. It’s got the fastest and the slowest song we ever made and lyrics wise there are themes we had never had before. It’s 10 new songs of pure Nordic metal and whether you enjoy it with a beer or a glass of water, I’m sure you will have a good time.”
