CHILDREN OF BODOM Unleash Second Single & Lyric Video





Finland's melodic death superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM are set to release their tenth album, Hexed, on March 8, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band has unleashed the official lyric video for their new single 'The Road'. Watch and listen over on YouTube:




COB frontman, guitarist, and mastermind Alexi Laiho comments: “This Road was actually the last song I wrote but it ended up being the opening track and also one of the singles which makes me happy cos it’s one of my faves. It’s different from anything we’ve done since Follow the Reaper but it’s still new. Check it out and you’ll know what I mean.”

Hexed saw the return to Finland’s Danger Johnny Studios where they were reunited with Mikko Karmila (I Worship Chaos, Halo Of Blood, Hatebreeder, Follow the Reaper & Hate Crew Deathroll)who recorded everything except keyboards and also produced the album with the band. Janne Wirman recorded keyboards at Beyond Abilities Studios. The album was mixed and mastered at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland.

For this album, the band enlisted Deins Forkas to create the album artwork. Bassist Henkka Blacksmithcommented on the cover, “For some years already I have wanted to try a different approach with our cover art. We are so used to digital art so that is really hard to do something else. Doing it all the way with a computer is somewhat safe and convenient. This time we all agreed to try it old school. We found this cool dude and gave him simple instructions. The cover has to be purple and the reaper has to be central. Half a year later we got his work, and with a little tweaking, we have the cover of Hexed. It is very different from what we are used to, even the Reaper looks different, but at the same time very spooky.“

INGESTED, DEAD WITCHES, CYPERCORE, FORGOTTEN REMAINS and more join already announced headliners DECAPITATED, BLEED FROM WITHIN, UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION, CYTOTOXIN and more, making up another utterly devastating line up for the festival.

DECAPITATED headline MAMMOTHFEST 2018 and are now joined by an arsenal of stunning other live bands!
