The band’s last album, Surtur Rising, entered the Top 200 Chart at #34 making Deceiver of the Gods the band’s highest charting record to date.

Set To Unleash Father Of The Wolf Video; Main Stage On Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest Now

Deceiver of the Gods came in at #9 on Canada’s Top 200 Chart, #2 on the Hard Music Charts and #21 on the Digital Music Chart. Additionally, the record came in at #2 on the iTunes Metal Chart, #2 on the iTunes Rock Chart and #7 on the iTunes Top 200.

In the UK, the record entered the official Album Charts at #67, the Rock/Metal Chart at #4 and the Independent Chart at #14 marking the highest UK chart placements for the band yet.

Elsewhere, Deceiver of the Gods came in at #9 on the Top 100 Album Chart in Switzerland, #7 on the Austrian Top 100, #9 in Sweden, #27 in Denmark, #51 in France, #34 in Czech Republic and #51 in Hungary.

Comments the band of their latest triumph:

“The fan reaction to Deceiver of the Gods around the globe is both amazing and overwhelming. Our fans are strong and true and we are humbled by the support. We look forward to visiting everyone on the road.”

Deceiver of the Gods released in North America via Metal Blade Records on June 25, was recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, UK, produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Killswitch Engage, Megadeth, Opeth) and is reaping critical accolades internationally.

Deceiver of the Gods goes from rampaging to brooding to anthemic over a well-conceived trajectory… This is an album that begs to be consumed in its entirety at every listen, just to get the full experience” – Decibel Magazine

“No one delivers big, punch-in-the-face motifs better than AMON AMARTH, and the Swedish melodic-death-metal titans have excelled themselves on their ninth studio album… Not only does Johan Hegg deliver his fiercest growls ever, but he also duets mesmerizingly with operatic ex-Candlemass frontman Messiah Marcolin on Hel”Revolver Magazine

“easily one of the strongest and most diverse records the Swedes have ever made, gloriously extravagant, explosive blend of brutish riffing and unapologetic Maiden worship” – Metal Hammer

Literally invading U.S. shores, AMON AMARTH’s main stage slot on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest stuck awe into the hearts of media and fans alike when it opened last Saturday in San Bernardino, California. The band’s mammoth stage production, including a Viking Longboat and the amassing armies in the war between Odin and Loki, lit up the internet with excitement for the band’s set.

“the stunning stage production was what really made this AMON AMARTH show stand out from their own past shows, and indeed from all other bands that played this festival” – MetalAssault.com

In related news, AMON AMARTH is currently putting the finishing touches on the official video for colossal track Father Of The Wolf. The video will be unveiled in the coming weeks. Until then, check out the trailer now playing at the band’s microsite: http://deceiver.amonamarth.com

HUNTRESS Release Video Trailer

HUNTRESS generated a massive amount of buzz since the release of their debut album Spell Eater in 2012. The follow up to last year’s Starbound Beast, is available now in Europe and will be released this Tuesday, July 2 in North America via Napalm Records. The album can be pre-ordered on iTunes and Amazon.

The band recently completed work on a video for their song Zenith.  A video teaser can be viewed HERE. The clip was directed by Phil Mucci, whose video for HIGH ON FIRE’s Fertile Green was named best video of 2012 by Revolver. Look for the video to receive its exclusive premiere soon.

In support of the release of Starbound Beast HUNTRESS is hitting the road on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. In addition to performing everyday, vocalist Jill Janus will host the first ever Shred-Meister guitar competition. Festival attendees can go to the Jägermeister tents on site and audition for a chance to shred for 10 seconds on the main stage. Each day, one of the 10 finalists will win a custom Jägermeister guitar from Schecter and the overall winner at the end of the tour will win a custom Jägermeister full stack and head courtesy of Peavey Electronics.

Starbound Beast was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles, CA, working with famed producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front).  The artwork for Starbound Beast was created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.

CHILDREN OF BODOM Release Album Details, To Join Mayhem Fest

Find us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter View our videos on YouTube

Finnish heavy metal superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM (aka COB) set Halo of Blood as the title of their eagerly anticipated eighth studio album, set for a June 11 North American release via Nuclear Blast Records.

They also unveiled the album cover art, created by artist Sam Saramäki, known for his work on the classic COB records Follow the Reaper, Are You Dead Yet? and Hate Crew Deathroll.

CHILDREN OF BODOM recorded Halo of Blood in Finland’s Danger Johnny Studios (located at a top secret, undisclosed location in Helsinki) with recording engineer Mikko Karmila, who worked with the band on their earlier albums Hatebreeder, Follow the Reaper and Hate Crew Deathroll and producer Peter Tägtgren (Marduk, Amon Amarth) who oversaw production of both vocals and keyboards on the record. The album will be mixed at Finnvox Studios.

CHILDREN OF BODOM frontman and international guitar hero Alexi “Wildchild” Laiho comments,

Halo Of Blood is the eighth studio album from Children of Bodom. Musically, we’ve kept it fresh and new while still maintaining the elements that make COB’s sound so recognizable. This new album has both the fastest and the slowest songs we’ve ever made and lyrically, there are themes we’ve never touched on before. Prepare yourselves for ten tracks of pure Nordic metal!”

Halo Of Blood tracklisting:

1.) Waste of Skin
2.) Halo of Blood
3.) Scream for Silence
4.) Transference
5.) Bodom Blue Moon (The Second Coming)
6.) The Days are Numbered
7.) Dead Man’s Hand on You
8.) Damage Beyond Repair
9.) All Twisted
10.) One Bottle and a Knee Deep

In support of Halo of Blood, CHILDREN OF BODOM will tour North America alongside Rob Zombie, Mastodon, Amon Amarth and more as one of the featured acts at the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Set to launch June 29 in San Bernardino, California, the five week trek will run through August 4 in Dallas, TX. The just-announced itinerary for the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival is listed on THE WELDING ROOM – TOUR DATES page.

 

About CHILDREN OF BODOM:

CHILDREN OF BODOM’s enthralling mix of modern heavy metal, melodic hooks and the instrumental acrobatics have solidified the critically acclaimed Finnish band as one of the most revered hard rock acts in the world and one of the leading voices of metal’s new generation. The group’s superstar frontman/guitarist Alexi “Wildchild” Laiho is known worldwide for his ambitious guitar playing and was named “Best Metal Guitarist” by the readers of Guitar World. CHILDREN OF BODOM has been called “technically dazzling” by the New York Times and “One of the most talented metal bands of our time” by VICE. 15 years into its career, COB continues to grow its ever-expanding fan base via supercharged live shows that have also made fans of some of hard rock’s biggest names. The band’s name is derived from the infamous Lake Bodom murders, which took place in Finland in 1960.

In addition to Laiho, CHILDREN OF BODOM features Henkka Seppälä (bass), Roope Latvala (guitar), Jaska Raatikainen (drums) and Janne Warman (keyboards).
