Children of Bodom – Hexed
By Sara Lambeth 

Children of Bodom are on tour in support of their latest record, “Hexed,” their tenth studio album which was released March 8th, 2019.  The album is a throwback in ways – it’s the first album since “Follow the Reaper” to include neo-classical elements.  “Hexed” really is a great album with much of the records drive coming from the prominent mix of keyboard parts creating a flavor reminiscent of COBs earlier works. 

Once again, COB worked with the production team of Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila.  In the charts, “Hexed” is seeing the success it deserves – peaking at #1 in Finland, #9 in Germany, #14 in the Swiss charts and #15 in Austria.  And an odd factoid, “Hexed” is the second album (after Relentless Reckless Forever) not to have a song with "Bodom" in the title.

Sara spoke with keyboardist Janne Wirman at a recent stop at Club Red in Mesa, AZ.  Check out the interview…
