Guitarist / vocalist Alexi Laiho & keyboard player Janne Warman of the world renowned Finnish heavy metal band CHILDREN OF BODOM (aka COB) have issued a second studio update from the bowels of Danger Johnny Studios in Helsinki, where the band began work on their as-yet-untitled eighth studio release last month.
Recording engineer Mikko Karmila (who worked on the Hatebreeder, Follow the Reaper, and Hate Crew Deathroll albums) is lending his talents to the new studio effort in addition to producer Peter Tägtgren (Immortal, Marduk, Amon Amarth), who oversaw production for vocals & keyboards earlier this month. The album will be mixed at Finnvox Studios and a summer street date via Nuclear Blast Records is expected.
Working song titles include: “All Twisted,” “Slowdance On Nails,” “Moto GP,” “FC Pettymys,” “Kananmuisti-ilmiö”[Chicken Memory Effect], and “Trondheim.”
CHILDREN OF BODOM are: Alexi Laiho (guitar, vocals); Roope Latvala (guitar); Jaska Raatikainen (drums); Henkka Seppälä (bass); and Janne Warman (keyboards).
