Finland’s finest melodic death metal band are back with their third chapter of torrid tales from the merky depths of the murderous Lake Bodom.
„Follow The Reaper“ is the follow up to last year’s highly successful albums, „Hatebreeder“ and the limited edition live set, „Tokyo Warhearts“. Their latest CD- single „ Hate Me !“ sold platinum in Finland , and all their previous singles have reached gold also.
„Hatebreeder“ not only set standarts for others in their genre to try and match, but the live album indicated just how far Children of Bodom had come in such a short time, proving that they have become a tight unit and a killer live act. They have already toured Europe four times and in spring next year you have the opportunity to have a look at them on the co-headlining tour with Primal Fear.
In between these releases, guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho found time to write songs and play on the Sinergy album „ To Hell And Back“, while keyboardist Janne Wirman recorded an extraordinairy solo project „Unknown Soldier“, under the guise of Warmen, proving that Children Of Bodom are no one man show, with every member contributing to their unique sound.
„Follow The Reaper“ also marks a radical change in recording surroundings. The band decided to venture into unknown territory and this time to record outside of Finland and chose Sweden’s legendary Abyss Studio’s , with the famed producer Peter Tägtgren ( Hypocrisy/Pain).
