Children of Bodom - Hexed

Apr 19 | Fri | 6PM |

Children of Bodom Formed in Espoo, Finland in 1993 originally under the moniker Inearthed, CHILDREN OF BODOM had an extraordinary start to their career. Their '90s take off was so impressive that many new metal bands still look up to it today –almost all of their albums earned platinum or gold status in Finland and over the past twenty five years they've become regulars on some of the world's biggest stages. 2019 beckons in a new era for a revitalized and bloodthirsty Hate Crew, who will present their 10thstudio album Hexed on March 8th. It's been three years since the release of I Worship Chaos and Bodom have taken time out around touring to carefully develop this new work, which packs a hell of a punch. History tells us that having an extensive time frame to work on a project can often result in procrastination and loss of focus –but with Hexed the reverse has manifest in this 11 track, impressively stripped back melo-death, rock-n-roll-rampage. In an album packed full of killer tracks, 'Under Grass and Clover'-once more, a song blessed with melodies that evoke images of both '70s prog and '80s pop metal -has been picked out for extra attention by Alexi. "It's a track that people should hear first, besides 'The Road'" says Alexi, "before you get to the rest of the album. And like 'The Road' it's also about the dangers of alcoholism; let's just put it that way (laughs). It's something that I have not written about in a long time."
