Drum-cam footage of Jaska Raatikainen of Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM performing the song “Everytime I Die” at the Loud Park festival on October 27 at Saitama Super Arena, a multi-purpose indoor arena located in Saitama City, Japan, can be seen below.
CHILDREN OF BODOM recently inked a Japanese record deal with Marquee Inc. The label will release the band’s new album in late spring/early summer 2013. The CD will be made available in other parts of the world via the band’s new label home, Nuclear Blast Records.Raatikainen recently wrote on his Facebook page, “We have some songs ready and I must say that they really sound great — very inspiring, dark and also little ‘black’ [metal]-ish. We have been joking about [CHILDREN OF BODOM guitarist/vocalist] Alexi [Laiho], that one day he will come to rehearsals with corpsepaint :-) ! So dark the songs have been.”
CHILDREN OF BODOM released a photo book, “Roadkill”, on August 8 via Hatecrew.com. The first 666 copies are numbered and personally signed by the band.
CHILDREN OF BODOM‘s most recent release was “Holiday At Lake Bodom (15 Years Of Wasted Youth)” , a very special CD+DVD career retrospective in celebration of the band’s 15th anniversary.
