Children Of Bodom produced the third in a series of studio trailers from their eagerly awaited ninth studio album I Worship Chaos. The album was recorded at Danger Johnny Studios in Helsinki, Finland and produced by the band with help from long-serving Children Of bodom collaborator Mikko Karmilla. It will be released for general sale on October 2nd 2015, via Nuclear Blast and is available for pre-order now from the Nuclear Blast web-store.
The video features Alexi Laiho and bass player Henkka Seppälä discussing the rigs they used to record the new album.
Children of Bodom front-man and guitarist Alexi Laiho said this about the album – “We are close to putting the finishing touches on the new COB record I Worship Chaos and as much fun ..but most importantly raw, literally bloody knuckled hard work, it has been making it, I’m more than happy and even more anxious to share this chaos with the rest of the world. So people, put your shades and helmets on, it will get very dark and it might hurt, in a perfect COB fashion of course!”
This year has seen the departure of long time Children of Bodom guitarist Roope Latvala, the band made the following statement on Roope’s departure:
As we parted ways with no bad blood, we wish him nothing but the best and thank him for allowing us to share the last twelve years of our lives with him. Hope the fans know that this will not affect the upcoming shows or the new album as we recorded it as a four-piece and it is already mixed, mastered, heavy as shit and ready to go!
The younger brother of keyboardist Janne Wirman, Antti Wirman has taken over Latvala’s guitar duties since his departure in May.
