CHILDREN OF BODOM in May announced the departure of the band's guitarist of the past decade, Roope Latvala.
Asked if his interaction with keyboardist Janne Wirman changed because he is now the sole guitarist, Laiho told Ultimate Guitar: "Not really, because the whole situation and everything was exactly the same while we were working on the music, so nothing really changed on that part. But, actually, it seems like everybody has noticed that there are more keyboards on the new album. Funnily enough, as much as it's true that there's tons of them, but I don't know if there's any more. I think they're just more obvious. We had more shit in, like hidden keyboard parts apart from the previous album. A lot of his crazy sounds are doubling the rhythm guitars or bass lines or stuff like that."
