CHILDREN OF BODOM: Tentative Release Date For New Album Revealed

CHILDREN OF BODOM bassist Henkka Blacksmith has 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 broken arm.

CHILDREN OF BODOM's as-yet-untitled new CD is tentatively scheduled for release in Finland on August 29, 2005 via Spinefarm Records (September 3, 2005 in the rest of the world through Universal).

In other news, vinyl lovers will be happy to know that all of CHILDREN OF BODOM's albums (including "Tokyo Warhearts") will be re-released as double LP versions in February and March. It is not presently clear what bonus tracks will be included on each of the accompanying discs.

Also on the CHILDREN OF BODOM-related front, Laiho was recently named "future legend" by the readers of Guitar World magazine, where he won with 29 percent of the total vote.
