New Children Of Bodom Album Title And Tour Announced

Children OF Bodom have revealed that their new album, due for release next year, will be titled Relentless Reckless Forever.

Alexi Lahio:

“We worked super-hard on this album, at least for me it was pretty much no sleep or rest for six weeks, but we were determined to make the best COB album ever, so we were willing to do whatever it took. Of course, having our producer Matt Hyde kicking our asses 24/7 definitely made the results even better, so obviously we’re more than anxious to get this album out there”

Also announced was a UK tour with Amon Amarth for next April.

April 03 – ABC Glasgow
April 05 – Vicar Street Dublin

42 Seconds Later & Warpath Albums Of The Decade

DN Favourites 42 Seconds Later and Warpath have told us their favourite albums of the decade.

42 Seconds Later:

Matt:
The Darkness “One Way Ticket To Hell”
The Darkness “Permission To Land”
AC/DC “Black Ice”  The best AC/DC since Back in Black and For those about to Rock
Megadeth” The System has Failed”  Great album that features the return of Chris Poland.
Chickenfoot “Chickenfoot”
Journey “Revelation”

Shari:
The Darkness “One Way Ticket To Hell”
Velvet Revolver “Contraband”
Lifehouse “Who We Are”
Journey “Revelation”

Cory:
Voices by Matchbook Romance
That album showcases some spectacular understanding of musical theory and a vast knowledge of where to use what chord progressions correctly. The entire album seems to be in a minor key, and it’s a very good album as far as “concept albums” are concerned. It starts with the moment you are in that state of consciousness between sleep and wakefulness, and descends into a nightmare before an abrupt awakening. Wonderful album.

Warpath:

1. Iron Maiden – Brave New World (2000)
2. King Diamond – House Of God (2000)
3. Eidolon – Hallowed Apparition (2001)
4. Children Of Bodom – Hatecrew Deathroll (2003)
5. Primal Fear – Black Sun (2002)
6. Arch Enemy -Wages Of Sin (2001)
7. Twilightning – Delirium Veil (2003)
8. Dissection – Reinkaos (2006)
9. Annihilator – Metal (2007)
10. Nile – Those Whom The Gods Detest (2009)

Pete: I actually found it difficult to choose just 10 albums from the past decade that not only kick ass but inspire or had a huge impact on me as a person and musician. I mean I couldn’t just put the last few Iron Maiden and Annihilator albums! I wanted to include some by Megadeth, Testament, Hypocrisy, Kataklysm, Nevermore, Nocturnal Rites even the new Whitesnake one is amazing, but this list above is my personal Top 10 essential albums for the decade!

Alexi Laiho To Tour The States With Hypocrisy

The singer/guitarist of Children of Bodom, will be playing guitar for Hypocrisy during their upcoming US tour.

Hypocrisy mainman Peter Tagtgren released the following statement:

“We’re very happy to bring Alexi along on this tour and that he’s helping us out with filling the 2nd guitarist position. Funny, the first  Children of Bodom show was a support gig for Hypocrisy on the Nuclear Blast festival in ‘98. Since then me and Alexi have become very good friends. I’ve helped him with producing and he’s helped me by contributing a guitar solo on one of my records with my other band Pain. There will be no shortage of alcohol on this tour that’s for sure.”

Should be plenty of (drunken) fun there then!
