Children Of Bodom Premiere Animated Video For “Hexed”

Children Of Bodom have premiered an animated video for the title track of their latest album “Hexed.” The clip was created by students at the The Royal Melbourne Institute Of Technology in Australia and it was produced by Aaron McLoughlin and Simon Norton.

McLoughlin commented:

“As always, we like to come up with something that suits what the band is all about, so we drew inspiration from the song lyrics as well as the monochromatic imagery found in Children of Bodom’s videos and album art. We decided a black and white horror film would be cool – set on a lake, of course!

And we had to include a Roy cameo appearance, obviously! Although ‘Hexed‘ is a fast track, it’s also particularly measured in the way it plays out over the 5-minute duration, so part of the fun was crafting a cinematic narrative that flows with the amazing technical precision of the music.

The animation students at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia are some of the most talented rising stars in the world, and I think they’ve done a terrific job on this project. Animating metal videos is such a fun thing to do at university, and the team felt very honoured creating this film for Children of Bodom.”

Bassist Henkka T. Blacksmith added:

“It’s such a cool thing to have a video of one my favourite tracks of the album. And the fact it’s made by Aaron and his 25 students in Australia is even cooler. The black and white calm mood suits perfectly to this not-so-calm song. The lake and it’s reflection makes a perfect ending for it.”

Children Of Bodom Premiere “This Road” Lyric Video

Children Of Bodom have premiered a lyric video for their new song “This Road.” This track is from the band’s new album “Hexed,” which will be released on March 8. Alexi Laiho commented:

“‘This Road‘ was actually the last song I wrote but it ended up being the opening track and also one of the singles which makes me happy cos it’s one of my faves. It’s different from anything we’ve done since ‘Follow the Reaper‘ but it’s still new. Check it out and you’ll know what I mean.”

Children Of Bodom To Release New Beer Brewed With Water From Lake Bodom

Children Of Bodom have joined forces with Fat Lizard Brewing Co. to create a new beer called “Lake Bodom Pre-Prohibition Lager.” The 5.0% ABV lager will be released in Finland on February 1 and it was actually brewed with water from Lake Bodom. The band got their name from that lake, which was home to horrible murders back in 1960 when three teenagers were stabbed and bludgeoned to death while camping. A fourth one was also injured, but survived. The killer was never caught. As previously reported, Children Of Bodom’s new album “Hexed” will be released on March 8.
