Official press release: Finnish metal superstars Children of Bodom have named their eighth studio album "Halo Of Blood" and have unveiled the album artwork. Cover art was created this time by Sami Saramäki (Follow The Reaper, Are You Dead Yet?, Hate Crew Deathroll). Mastermind Alexi Laiho commented: "Halo Of Blood is the 8th studio album from Children of Bodom and believe it or not but we still managed to keep it fresh and new while still maintaining the elements that make COB sound recognizable. Its got the fastest and the slowest song we ever made and lyrics wise there are themes we had never had before. Its 10 new songs of pure nordic metal and wether you enjoy it with a beer or a glass of water, I'm sure you will have a good time." Bass player Henkka Seppälä states about the artwork: "We wanted to have a winter scene. Somehow it fits Well with the atmosphere of the music and the composing session. It could be lake bodom actually, frozen, with people trapped under the ice. Very Finnish looking scene. We were really happy how Sami created the whole imagery!"
