CHILDREN OF BODOM guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho has once again landed the prestigious spot on the cover of Japan's Young Guitar magazine, according to BODOM fan site Scythes-of-Bodom. This is the fourth time that he has been featured on the cover of the magazine since 2003. Check out the cover of the new issue as well as the previous three cover appearances at this location.

As previously reported, CHILDREN OF BODOM bassist Henkka Blacksmith recently revealed that the group's new album will be recorded in Helsinki, Finland with producer Mikko Karmila but not at the Finnvox studio, where Karmila had previously mixed some of the group's previous output. It is not presently clear if the recordings, which were scheduled for March, will be delayed due to guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho's recent accident which resulted in a broken arm.

CHILDREN OF BODOM's as-yet-untitled new CD is tentatively scheduled for release in Finland on August 29 via Spinefarm Records (September 3 in the rest of the world through Universal). In addition, all of CHILDREN OF BODOM's albums (including "Tokyo Warhearts") will be re-released as double LP versions in February and March. No information has yet been revealed as to what bonus tracks will be included on each of the accompanying discs.
