Back in March, Finnish death metal lords Children Of Bodom revealed they were holed up in the studio hammering out their 8th studio album, Halo Of Blood. Now, the band are ready to show the world what they’ve been up to, debuting the title track from the release for all to enjoy.
Much like what you’d expect from an 8th studio album, the band pretty much have their shit locked down. The track Halo Of Blood is the sort of controlled and contained chaos we’ve come to expect our Finnish overlords. The band boast that the album contains some of the slowest and fastest songs they have ever composed so we’re guessing the single, Halo Of Blood, belongs to the former.
As for the other tracks on the album, the band have released a play-by-play account of what we can expect. Halo Of Blood is only the 2nd track from the record so things kick off at break neck speed. But would it be a COB album any other way?
Halo Of Blood, the album, will arrive Down Under Friday, 7th June.
