CHILDREN OF BODOM – Update From The Road


Finnish melodic thrash metal act CHILDREN OF BODOM has issued the following tour blog:

“In the beginning of the summer we went to Janne’s small studio and recorded a couple of new cover songs for the forthcoming cover album. The songs turned out really good. Especially the slower song, that seemed to be a little hard to arrange. Then we kept on doing the festivals, as planned. Provinssirock, was good, even though we played soooo late. ‘I hate these Finnish mosquitos!’, as our German friend used to say.

Then we went to hot Spain. Zaragoza city is beautiful, but it was very windy. Again we played very late, and the wind just kept getting stronger. We had to really choose our steps carefully on stage, in order not be blown down by that wind. It was surreal. But it was good to be in Spain again, after a couple of years break.

Today we came back from Belgium. Graspop is known to be one of the best metal festivals in the world, and again it truly was nice. Sunday was sort a reunion feeling, when LAMB OF GOD and GOD FORBID was playing too. And SUICIDAL TENDENCIES. Saturday we managed to get to the festival in time to see JOURNEY. We played on Sunday, and the tent was really hot. But the crowd was amazing. Best Graspop show ever for us.

On Friday we played Sweden, Gothenburg. MUNICIPAL WASTE guys were hanging out, as did some of the IN FLAMES guys too. It was good to have beers with friends from past tours. Show was our best show ever played in Sweden, in my opinion. And I fell in love with summer- Gothenburg.”

Children Of Bodom will return to North America this fall to headline a massive, month-long tour. The award-winning band, which features front man and world-renowned guitar hero Alexi Laiho, will launch the tour on Friday, September 18th at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, RI.
