Hot News: Children of Bodom Sign Deal with Nuclear Blast

Finnish metal superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM (known as COB) have inked a recording deal with Nuclear Blast Records, who worked with the band in the early stages of their career and is proud of the renewed partnership. COB, who kicked off a year-long celebration of its 15th anniversary with a successful North American tour alongside label mates ELUVEITIE, have a new studio album planned for release in 2013.

We had a good, productive and long run with Spinefarm Records for fifteen years and now it’s simply just time for a change,” said CHILDREN OF BODOM front man / guitarist Alexi “Wildchild” Laiho. “I’m absolutely stoked to start the new chapter of COB’s career with Nuclear Blast and look forward to working with them.”

Personally, I am so excited to get to work with Nuclear Blast again,” adds COB bass player Henkka T. Blacksmith. “We have such good memories from the beginning of our career with them. We know the people already and we know how committed they are in doing metal!

Nuclear Blast Europe A&R rep Jaap Wagemaker shares: “15 years ago we were introduced to a very young band from Finland who blew us away with their track ‘Deadnight Warrior’ from their debut album Something Wild – and their music was indeed something wild! Fast-tapping guitar work combined with incredible keyboards and angry vocals… it was the start of the career of CHILDREN OF BODOM. Nuclear Blast released their first three albums outside of Finland: Something Wild, Hatebreeder, and Follow The Reaper, albums that became classics in the history of metal. Unfortunately, after the third album, we went separate ways but we have always been following them and stayed in contact. CHILDREN OF BODOM became a very big band worldwide and now the time has come to welcome them back home! We at Nuclear Blast are very happy to see CHILDREN OF BODOM rejoining the Nuclear family and are looking forward to working their next albums. You can be sure that ‘something wild’ will come your way!”

CHILDREN OF BODOM‘s enthralling mix of modern heavy metal, melodic hooks, and instrumental acrobatics have solidified the Finnish band as one of the most critically acclaimed and revered hard rock acts in the world, a leading voice of metal’s new generation. The group’s talented front man & guitarist Alexi Laiho is best known for his hell-bent guitar playing and was named “Best Metal Guitarist” by the readers of Guitar World magazine.

Fifteen years into their career, COB continues to grow their ever-expanding fan base via supercharged live shows and have claimed some of rock’s biggest names as fans. Longtime metal vocalist and reality television star Sebastian Bach jumped on stage at a CHILDREN OF BODOM show in Los Angeles and expressed his love for the band (video footage at http://youtu.be/6hBAy-CqCTo). In COB’s hometown of Helsinki, Laiho was invited to join the Deftones on stage for a joint performance of the Deftones’ hit “Root” (video footage at http://youtu.be/cgn7qiWEWSo).

CHILDREN OF BODOM’s name is derived from the infamous Lake Bodom murders, which took place in Finland in 1960.

What the press is saying about COB:

• “…technically dazzling.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES

• “One of the most talented metal bands of our time.” – VICE
