childrenofobodombanner

Finnish metal masters Children Of Bodom have set Halo Of Blood as the title for their upcoming eighth studio album. Featuring 10 tracks, the album was produced by Peter Tägtgren (Marduk, Amon Amarth) and is scheduled to be released June 11th via Nuclear Blast Records.

Guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho comments, “Halo Of Blood is the eighth studio album from Children of Bodom. Musically, we’ve kept it fresh and new while still maintaining the elements that make COB’s sound so recognizable. This new album has both the fastest and the slowest songs we’ve ever made and lyrically, there are themes we’ve never touched on before. Prepare yourselves for ten tracks of pure Nordic metal!
