“Looking back at all that’s happened and what’s still going on it feels more like a document from a pivotal battle than a live album,” says frontman Johannes Eckerström.

Finland’s melodic death metal act Children Of Bodom released their tenth album, “Hexed”, yesterday.
It has now been announced that they will bring their brand of biker metal (likened with Black Label Society and AC/DC) to Sweden for one show at Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg. Crossplane and Virginia Hill will be the opening acts on September 6th.
“Monster Human is about how nasty and evil a human can be. A portrait of a mindset and action when everything is shattered and torn and revenge is the only thing certain”, mainman Tony Tony Jelencovich says. “We feel that the guitar melody in the chorus is strongly influenced by “We are the robots” by Kraftwerk, and the German language came smoothly & nicely along”
The Brits have gradually infused their unrelenting modern metal with strains of melodic metal, topping their neckbreakingly precise riffs with fierce hooklines and anthemic choruses begging to be screamed back at the band in sold out stadiums.
Korpiklaani have released yet another version of “Beer Beer”, this one sung in German by Tankard’s Gerre.
Packed with guitar-riffs the size of Mount Everest, pow-pow-pounding rhythms and lyrics that make Dr. Feelgood himself sweat bullets – ‘Fireman & Dancer’ is the first song out of the gate from the forthcoming full-length album »Club Majesty«
With plenty of Doom and Sludge, the band’s music also holds some terrific ambient parts. All that said, the music is downright sick
“Power Crazy” is the band’s fourth full-length album and continues their successful formula of coupling sonic power with a taste for infectious riffs.
The band went back to 1992’s “Double Eclipse” album for influence for the songs on this record, but additionally they also looked a little closer in the rearview at the predecessor, “Human Nature”. The resulting album blends the influences of those two albums and sees Hardline heavier, stronger, bigger, and better than ever.
