Derek Snider of The Score television network — a Canadian specialty television service providing sports, news, information, highlights and live event programming, available across Canada — conducted an interview with bassist Henkka Seppälä (a.k.a. Henkka T. Blacksmith) of Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM at this year’s edition of the Heavy T.O. festival, which was held July 23-24, 2011 at Downsview Park in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. You can now watch the chat below.
CHILDREN OF BODOM‘s new album, “Relentless Reckless Forever”, sold nearly 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 42 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, 2008’s “Blooddrunk”, opened with 19,000 units to land at No. 22. This number was roughly four times the opening tally of “Blooddrunk”‘s predecessor, “Are You Dead Yet?”, which premiered with 5,000 units back in October 2005 to enter the chart at No. 195.
“Relentless Reckless Forever” was certified gold in the band’s home country for first-day sales of over 10,000 copies. The CD was recorded in Finland’s Petrax Studios with famed rock producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, MONSTER MAGNET).
