Children of Bodom Begin Recording New Album Friday

Children of BodomMelodic death metal band Children of Bodom will start recording the follow-up to Relentless Reckless Forever tomorrow with Jaska Raatikainen taking care of the drum recordings first. The band has been rehearsing the new songs which are now ready. The new album is planned to be released in 2013 via Nuclear Blast.

Drummer Jaska Raatikainen issued the following message: “Yo! Today we had the last rehearsals before entering the studio tomorrow to record drums for the new album. Last two days have been quite intensive. Playing the songs over and over again, lots of fuck ups and broken drum sticks, sweating, frustration, coffee and what have you, a little bit of arranging and all that shit.

I am convinced that the new songs are great. A little bit of black metal, heavy metal, metal, old school death metal, melodies, solos and anything you need to make a nice album. And the most important, new ideas à la COB! Stay tuned, studio reports will follow. Now I think I am ready for a beer! KIPPIS! Jaska.”
