cobbandFinland’s melodic death superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM are proud to announce the release of their tenth album, Hexedon March 8, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, Alexi Laiho discusses the lyrical themes of Hexed.

COB frontman, guitarist, and mastermind Alexi Laiho comments, ‘ They just come from real life, real feelings. Anything that is negative that is happening inside my head that I need to get out some how.. I need to vent all the negative stuff that is going on in side my head, it is the best and safest  way for me to do it. I channel my shit feelings to the music and at least try to turn it into something positive.”

Hexed saw the return to Finland’s Danger Johnny Studios where they were reunited with Mikko Karmila (I Worship ChaosHalo Of Blood, Hatebreeder, Follow the Reaper & Hate Crew Deathroll) who recorded everything except keyboards and also produced the album with the band. Janne Wirman recorded keyboards at Beyond Abilities StudiosThe album was mixed and mastered at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland.

For this album, the band enlisted Deins Forkas to create the album artwork. Bassist Henkka Blacksmith commented on the cover, For some years already I have wanted to try a different approach with our cover art.  We are so used to digital art so that is really hard to do something else. Doing it all the way with computer is somewhat safe and convenient. This time we all agreed to try it old school.  We found this cool dude and gave him simple instructions.  The cover has to be purple and the reaper has to be central. Half a year later we got his work, and with little tweaking, we have the cover of Hexed.  It is very different from what we are used to, even the Reaper looks different, but at the same time very spooky. “
