Children Of Bodom to release new studio album “Hexed” on March 8th 2019

Finland’s melodic death superstars Children Of Bodom are proud to the announce the release of their tenth album, “Hexed”, on March 8th, 2019, via Nuclear Blast Records.

COB frontman, guitarist, and mastermind Alexi Laiho comments: “People have said that this album is generally catchier. So I started thinking about that, perhaps the song structures are easier to grasp on initial listen. But there’s some crazy shit in there, almost progressive or at least technical. There are certain melodies across the album that could have come from jazz songs, although they’re completely metal with us, of course (laughs)”.

Black Therapy, an Italian combo, got completely canceled for this performance, while Finnish band Whispered, who are melodic death “wierdos”, who wear Japanese Samurai regalia and use some folklore Jap influences in their songs, did a 20 minute performance, of which I was only able to catch a portion of the last song (so no photos, sorry).
