CHILDREN OF BODOM: New Album to Feature Guest Appearance By PETER TÄGTGREN

CHILDREN OF BODOM bassist Henkka T. Blacksmith has issued the following update:

"We have now all the stuff ready [for the new CHILDREN OF BODOM album]. We've been sitting at the rehearsal place a lot, and we are very happy about all the songs. In a week we will pack our stuff and move to the studio outside of Helsinki. Then it should be six weeks and all the stuff should be recorded. Mikko Karmila will be the guy again who says when we play bad or if something sounds not good. And he will also press the record button. Later on we will have a special guest from Sweden, when Peter Tägtgren [HYPOCRISY, PAIN] will show up for a while. When we did 'Follow the Reaper', Peter's effort on the vocals and keyboards was so good that we wanted to have him with us once again. Let's see how it works out this time, I'm sure it's great!

"What else... When everything is recorded we will mix the thing and master it the same way we have always done. In the studio we should figure out some cover songs, but it shouldn't be a problem. We have a couple things already decided..."

As previously reported, CHILDREN OF BODOM will play a one-off show in London, England at the Astoria on March 8, 2008.
