Children of Bodom have named their new album. Take a guess at what it is?
If you guessed Halo of Blood, I’m impressed as fuck. Seriously. You may have psychic abilities.
Halo of Blood — the band’s eighth record — will be out June 11 in North American on Nuclear Blast Records.

I actually like that title. It summons up all kinds of disturbing mental imagery.
Perhaps this Bodom record will win me back. I will definitely give it a chance.
Halo of Blood was tracked in Finland’s Danger Johnny Studios with recording engineer Mikko Karmila and Peter Tägtgren producing.
The album will be mixed at Finnvox Studios. “Halo Of Blood is the eighth studio album from Children of Bodom,” starts frontman Alexi “Wildchild” Laiho.
“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!”
Here’s how the track listing’s looking:
1. Waste of Skin
2. Halo of Blood
3. Scream for Silence
5. Bodom Blue Moon (The Second Coming)
6. The Days are Numbered
7. Dead Man’s Hand on You
8. Damage Beyond Repair
9. All Twisted
10. One Bottle and a Knee Deep
