    Children Of Bodom have confirmed the release of a new album, titled ‘Skeletons In The Closet', for September of this year through Spinefarm Records UK.

    I really fucking hate this. I just knew this would come.

    It's not a new COB album, it's a collection of shitty covers.

    Well the covers aren't all shitty..there's a fair few gems amongst them :) Still though, I agree a cover album is a bad idea for the band's credibility generally..not that all the covers are bad and undermine the band's talent or anything..just that they were always just a fun aside,not meant as serious tracks people need to buy in their own right,just extra incentives for people to buy the albums/singles. The label are milking the band a bit too much now really in fairness..

    Well, I'd understand that you got angry/complained if they released it just as an excuse to keep touring/scratching their balls Metallica style, but they're just putting it out for the fans who want to have the covers and some new ones without it affecting to their life as a band. They'll still stop touring after the USA, South America and Japan tours after summer and they'll still then start writing the new album, so it's just more Bodom for you, plus Bodom are pretty good at doing cover songs. You don't like them? Don't buy it. But I think it's pretty nice from them to do it.


    I for example consider way worse that Warmen are relasing a compilation of the first three albums now. If you want the fans or potential new fans to get the stuff they don't have, reissue them, but don't do a compilation of already existing tracks on the regular CD version. And nobody has complained about it. Bodom do even some more covers for an album for the fans to have the covers they may not have because their releases didn't have them and we complain? I don't see why.

    Good points Jose,I actually agree aswell..generally ignore anything I've posted today,I'm having a bit of an offday today,saying things I don't necessarily feel :p Anyway I'm always appreciative and delighted to get my hands on any new cob material/ promotional stuff that's made available so ultimately I'm happy this is coming out..and yeah you're right about it being handy for peeps who don't have all the songs already. :) I said stuff basically as a reflection on how record labels as a whole and in general can take advantage of a bands popularity and use it to make money with countless reissues and compilations. I suppose I shouldn't have directly applied it to cob..just with all the albums being recently reissued as well as this, it just comes off a bit money-hungry like I said before.It's just me musing on the music industry as a whole but personally from a hardcorefan perspective of this band I'm happy it's coming out and it is useul to get everything on one cd and especially if you didn't get the reissues with the bonus tracks :)

    That's true about Warmen actually..a best of after 3 albums is a bit strange but at least it's all origional material. But yeah you're right just reissuing would make more sense..

    I'm wondering how well do they think they're gonna sell with a cover album? Of course marketing it as a "new COB album" could bluff lots of dummies to buy it.

    ^Well I guess they won't make too many of them, but I'm sure quite some people will buy them. I don't see what's wrong with the cover album, really.

    What?

    Don't worry :) About labels being money hungry, I do think the reissues were that, but the cover album is something they've wanted to do for a long time, and they're putting some effort into it and making some new covers for that one, so I don't think is really a cheap and fast way of getting money from us.

    Big fans buy it anyway. Just to add to the collection.
    Fans who don't buy special editions haven't heard that much covers (excpet youtuve maybe) so for them it's relatively new and they may buy it.

    So I guess it will be sold pretty well. Ofcourse nowhere near gold but still alot.


    And after that people are whining about how CoB changed style and they suck.

    New cover songs:

    "Hell Is For Children" (Pat Benatar) (Beyond Abilities Studio summer 2009)

    They cry in the dark, so you cant see their tears
    They hide in the light, so you cant see their fears
    Forgive and forget, all the while (Lobodomy line)
    Love and pain become one and the same
    In the eyes of a wounded child
    Because hell
    Hell is for children
    And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
    Hell
    Hell is for children
    And you shouldnt have to pay for your love with your bones and your flesh

    Its all so confusing, this brutal abusing
    They blacken your eyes, and then apologize
    Youre daddys good girl, and dont tell mommy a thing
    Be a good little boy, and youll get a new toy
    Tell grandma you fell off the swing

    Because hell
    Hell is for children
    And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
    Hell
    Hell is for children
    And you shouldnt have to pay for your love with your bones and your flesh

    No, hell is for children

    Hell
    Hell is for hell
    Hell is for hell
    Hell is for children



    "Antisocial" (Trust/Anthrax) (Beyond Abilities Studio summer 2009)

    I hope Henkka is doing the vocals for this one!

    Tu bosses toute ta vie pour payer ta pierre tombale,
    Tu masques ton visage en lisant ton journal,
    Tu marches tel un robot dans les couloirs du metro
    ,
    Les gens ne te touchent pas, il faut faire
    le premier pas,
    Tu voudrais dialoguer sans renvoyer la balle,
    Impossible d'avancer sans ton gilet pare-balle.
    Tu voudrais donner des yeux a la justice
    Imposssible de violer cette femme pleine de vices.

    Antisocial, tu pers ton sang froid.
    Repense a toutes ces annees de service.
    Antisocial, bientot les annees de sevices,
    Enfin le temps perdu qu'on ne rattrape plus.

    Ecraser les gens est devenu ton passe-temps.
    En les eclaboussant, tu deviens genant.
    Dans ton desespoir, il reste un peu d'espoir
    Celui de voir les gens sans fard et moins batards.
    Mais cesse de faire le point, serre plutot les poings,
    Bouge de ta retraite, ta conduite est trop parfaite
    Releve la gueule, je suis la, t'es pas seul
    Ceux qui t'enviaient, aujourd'hui te jugeraient.

    Tu bosses toute ta vie pour payer ta pierre tombale,
    Tu masques ton visage en lisant ton journal,
    Tu marches tel un robot dans les couloirs du metro,
    Les gens ne te touchent pas, il faut faire le premier pas,
    Tu voudrais dialoguer sans renvoyer la balle,
    Impossible d'avancer sans ton gilet pare-balle.
    Tu voudrais donner des yeux a la justice
    Imposssible de violer cette femme pleine de vices.
    Antisocial, antisocial, antisocial, antisocial



    "War Inside My Head" (Suicidal Tendencies) (Petrax Studio fall 2007)

    Napalm showers
    Showed the cowards
    We weren't there to mess around

    Through heat exhaustion
    And mind distortion
    A military victory mounted on innocent ground

    Hearing voices from miles away
    Saying things never said
    Seeing shadows in the light of the day
    Waging a war inside my head

    Years and years of
    Bloodshed and warfare
    Our mission was only to get in and kill

    A free vacation
    Of palmtrees and shrapnel
    Trading innocence for permanent psychotic hell

    Hearing voices from miles away
    Saying things never said
    Seeing shadows in the light of the day
    Waging a war inside my head

    Feeling strangers staring my way
    Reading minds never read
    Tasting danger with each word I say
    Waging a war inside my-

    * Previously unreleased track recorded at Beyond Abilities studios, summer 2009
    ** Previously unreleased track recorded at Petrax studios, fall 2007

    CHILDREN OF BODOM will return to North America this fall to headline a massive, month-long tour. The 20-city trek will launch on Friday, September 18 at Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island and will run through October 14 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Support will come from THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and SKELETONWITCH.

    CHILDREN OF BODOM recently released a 79-song digital box set exclusively through iTunes. It retails for $49.99.

    To view the complete track listing, which does not include any previously unreleased material, go to this location.

    CHILDREN OF BODOM was forced to cancel several shows on the No Fear Energy Tour with LAMB OF GOD due to injuries sustained by guitarist and frontman Alexi Laiho. Laiho, 30, broke his shoulder in April when he was ejected from his tour bus bunk after the vehicle took a sharp turn. Laiho and the rest of CHILDREN OF BODOM were touring North America in support of the band's critically acclaimed album "Blooddrunk".

    CHILDREN OF BODOM will embark on a tour of South America and Mexico in September. Support on the trek will come from AMORPHIS.

    People have been asking for a compilation of covers for a while, when fans demand the labels are bound to supply so no need to rage out. Bodom are one of those bands that actually do great covers, I'll probs buy it when I can get it for a fiver off Amazon.

    How can you be so retarded and always bash this cover compilation ?
    It was never ment to be a new album or anything, its just the fact that a usual fan has no chance of getting all their covers together (besides downloading them).
    The fact that they are even doing 3 new song per area is really suprising, thats like 1/3 of an album.
    Its simply a very good thing, i dont see the point of complaining about it ...

    For me, death metal and humour just don't go together. Sure they have awesome covers, but I can't take that seriously. Just saying, if the next COB album fails, there will be no excuses - they can blame their own asses for devoting their energy into this. Haha.

    They haven't devoted that much energy - just two new covers recorded - so I don't see how that would adversely affect their next album. I can understand
    that some people will not be interested in this compilation, but I think their covers are cool, and have become something of a COB icon. I will definitely buy it,
    and enjoy the songs in the spirit in which they were recorded.

    Just getting too old for that playing shit drunk and singing like retard cuz it's fun. Maybe I'm too serious. They're cover songs after all, nobody should care, and just like the cover songs this whole idea is orchestrated by the label.
