Hey, here’s an idea…just issue the bloody record already?
I kid, I kid. I am sort of stunned when bands provide 10,952 updates on their new album when they could be better spending that time working on the music.
Children Of Bodom say the ongoing studio sessions for their still-untitled eighth album are going splendidly.

Bassist Henkka Seppälä says the boys hope to have the new one in stores this summer, just in time for Mayhem Fest. I added the bit about Mayhem Fest.
“Last night I finished my parts for the record,” Seppälä said. “We listened to all the songs and fixed what had to be fixed. So the bass tracks are locked in and so are the basic tracks for guitars, from both Roope and Alexi. And of course all drums were recorded first. Next in line are the guitar melodies and solos and then the keyboards and vocals. We are ahead of schedule and very happy to work here in Helsinki for the first time ever.”
So far, we know a few tentative track titles from the new one.
These includes “All Twisted,” “Slowdance On Nails,” “Moto GP,” “FC Pettymys,” “Kananmuisti-ilmiö” and “Trondheim.”
