Children Of Bodom – recording new album in Helsinki
The Finish metal band Children Of Bodom is working on their eighth album. They have entered Danger Johnny Studios (located at a top secret, undisclosed location in Helsinki).
The album doesn’t have a title yet, but recording engineer Mikko Karmila is involved, who worked on ‘Hatebreeder‘, ‘Follow the Reaper‘, ‘Hate Crew Deathroll ‘and more as well as producer Peter Tägtgren (Marduk, Amon Amarth), who is overseeing production of both vocals and keyboards on the record. The album will be mixed at Finnvox Studios and a summer release date via Nuclear Blast Records is expected.
“It’s a nice change to the regular method where we lock ourselves up at a studio in the middle of the woods, usually also during the darkest time of the year,” commented guitarist, vocalist Alexi Laiho who is currently finishing up lyrics for the songs. In early February, Tägtgren will travel to Finland to oversee the keyboard and vocal recordings for his longtime allies.
“Last night I finished my parts for the record,” stays bassist Henkka Seppälä. “We listened to all the songs and fixed what had to be fixed. So the bass tracks are locked in and so are the basic tracks for guitars, from both Roope and Alexi. And of course all drums were recorded first. Next in line are the guitar melodies and solos and then the keyboards and vocals. We are ahead of schedule and very happy to work here in Helsinki for the first time ever.”
