Children of Bodom posts "Was It Worth It?" single

published on January 19, 2011 by Darren Cowan
"Was It Worth It?", the new single from hard partying Finnish band Children of Bodom is now available for streaming via the band's Facebook page. To rock the new COB song, simply visit www.facebook.com/childrenofbodom and click "Like" at the top of the page. "Was It Worth It?" will appear on Children of Bodom's new album "Relentless Reckless Forever", which will be released on March 8 via Universal Music.

Relentless Reckless Forever is now available for pre-order in a variety of formats via RelentlessRecklessForever.com. Among the packages available is a "Super Deluxe Edition", which consists of the album housed within a 64 page hardcover book plus a DVD containing a special behind the scenes look at the making of the "Was It Worth It?" music video and COB "Live from Bloodstock Open Air" footage as well as a first look Rock House instructional guitar lesson with the band's superstar frontman / guitarist Alexi Laiho taken from the upcoming "Rock House Method: Alexi Laiho 'In Your Face' instructional DVD, which also hits stores on March 8. A second special edition package contains the "Super Deluxe Edition" of "Relentless Reckless Forever" and adds a limited vinyl LP version of the album, a COB t-shirt and the 'In Your Face' instructional DVD. The first 300 fans to pre-order this bundle will also receive a "Relentless Reckless Forever" poster autographed by the band.

Recorded in Finland's Petrax Studios with famed rock producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet), Relentless Reckless Forever is the seventh studio album of COB's illustrious career and the first new record from the band since 2008's Blooddrunk, which debuted at #22 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart and scored the quintet its third consecutive #1 debut in Finland. On Relentless Reckless Forever, COB's high-energy hooks and electric energy forge stadium-sized heavy metal anthems that seethe with both marvelous musicianship and a phenomenal pop prowess. The quintet's unique union of haunting melodies, rhythmic sensibility, guitar-and-keyboard interplay and king-size solos is supercharged to the maximum, and the resulting record is poised to push the band - already on the brink of breakout success in the U.S. - to an altogether new pinnacle.

The first single and video from Relentless Reckless Forever is "Was it Worth It?". COB shot a high energy music video for the track, joining forces with two-time X Games gold medalist and two-time Thrasher Magazine "Skater of the Year" Chris Cole as well as noted pro skaters Jamie Thomas, Garrett Hill and Tom Asta (the current #1 Amateur skateboarder in the world). Filmed on location at central Pennsylvania's residential Action Sports compound Camp Woodward and directed by Dale Resteghini for Raging Nation Films (Pink Floyd, Santana, Mötley Crüe), the video was shot guerrilla style, sans treatment; honing in directly on CHILDREN OF BODOM's high-spirited fire and the skaters' eye-opening execution. A high resolution trailer for the clip can be viewed now at www.relentlessrecklessforever.com.

The track listing for Children of Bodom's Relentless Reckless Forever is as follows:

1.) Not My Funeral
2.) Shovel Knockout
3.) Roundtrip to Hell and Back
4.) Pussyfoot Miss Suicide
5.) Relentless Reckless Forever

Children Of Bodom reveals new album title

published on November 24, 2010 by Zandra
Finnish metallers Children Of Bodom have set "Relentless Reckless Forever" as the title to their new album, which will be available on March 8, 2011 via Universal Music.
The CD was recorded in Finland with producer Matt Hyde, who previously worked with Slayer and Monster Magnet.

Commented Alexi Laiho :
"We worked super-hard on this album, at least for me it was pretty much no sleep or rest for six weeks. But we were determined to make the best COB album ever, so we were willing to do whatever it took. Of course, having our producer Matt Hyde kicking our asses 24/7 definitely made the results even better, so obviously we're more than anxious to get this album out there"

Children of Bodom films "Was It Worth It?" video

published on November 3, 2010 by Darren Cowan
CHILDREN OF BODOM, the esteemed Finnish Heavy Metal band that features frontman and modern day guitar hero Alexi Laiho just wrapped shooting on a high energy music video for the brand new song “Was it Worth It?”. In the video, COB joined forces with two-time X Games gold medalist and two-time Thrasher Magazine “Skater of the Year” Chris Cole as well as noted pro skaters Jamie Thomas and Tom Asta (the current #1 Amateur skateboarder in the world). “Was it Worth It?” will appear on CHILDREN OF BODOM’s as-yet-untitled seventh studio album, which is slated for a spring, 2011 release via Universal Music.

Filmed on location at central Pennsylvania’s residential Action Sports compound Camp Woodward and directed by Dale Resteghini for Raging Nation Films (Pink Floyd, Santana, Mötley Crüe), the “Was it Worth It?” video was shot guerrilla style, sans treatment; honing in directly on CHILDREN OF BODOM’s high-spirited fire and the skaters’ eye-opening execution.

"The video shoot was an awesome party; a big concoction of super Heavy Metal and the most awesome and craziest skaters in the world,” said BODOM’s Laiho. “High octane drinks and lots of fun! Chris Cole’s ollies over me while I'm rocking my guitar solo, that's fuckin’ Rock ‘n’ Roll right there! I never had this much fun during a video shoot. Thanks to the director and everyone involved."

"I've been a Bodom fan for a very long time, and never thought something like this would ever happen. It's a dream come true for me,” commented Chris Cole. “For the past three years Alexi and I have been saying to each other how we wanted to film this one scene that finally happened in this video. I had a blast and can't wait for this video to air!"

CHILDREN OF BODOM enlisted famed rock producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet) to oversee the recording of its forthcoming release. COB just released an exclusive “inside look” at the making of its new record via its COBTV platform. The fun clip gives fans a behind the scenes look at the recording of the new album and the day to day life of the band as it prepares its new record. Check out the COBTV footage now at this location. The band is currently in the midst of a North American tour alongside Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society. Alexi and Zakk recently appeared side-by-side on the cover of Guitar World’s November, 2010 issue (see cover here).

“We’re very excited to let everyone hear what we’re creating with this new record,” said the band in a statement. “Everything you love about CHILDREN OF BODOM has been magnified tenfold and we’re pushing ourselves harder than ever before. Expect nothing less than “the perfect storm!”

CHILDREN OF BODOM's enthralling mix of modern heavy metal, melodic hooks and the guitar acrobatics of Laiho have solidified the critically acclaimed band as one of the most revered hard rock acts in the world and one of the leading voices of metal’s new generation. The group’s 2008 studio album Blooddrunk skyrocketed to #22 on Billboard’s Top 200, scored the quintet its third consecutive #1 debut in its native Finland and saw Laiho named “Best Metal Guitarist” by the readers of Guitar World, besting well known players such as Kirk Hammett of Metallica to win the coveted award. CHILDREN OF BODOM has been called "technically dazzling" by the New York Times and “One of the most talented metal bands of our time” by contemporary media conglomerate VICE. The band's name is derived from the infamous Lake Bodom murders, which took place in Finland in 1960.

In addition to Laiho, CHILDREN OF BODOM features Roope Latvala (guitar), Janne Warman (keyboard), Henkka Seppälä (bass) and Jaska Raatikainen (drums).
