    HOLY SHIT!

    I can hear the 1999-2003 COB in this song!
    An eargasm.

    I want this album to blow my brains and it seems it'll do.

    Just read the Soundi interview. Some interesting bits:

    Theme of the album is the suicides and deaths of friends whose lives ended too young. So that's the deep essence of Halo of Blood. Alexi describes it was self-therapy for him doing this album, dealing with the feelings related to friends lost to death, which explains the darkness of the album, together with the hard Finnish winter that we just endured. This is something I can relate to, having lost a close friend to suicide in shocking fashion. There's something near mythical about the blood of suicide, thus halo of blood... like a purpose deeper than bonds of flesh.

    Two songs on the album deal with lake Bodom lyrically.

    One of the working titles was In the Shadows 2012. There's a pic of all the working titles listed on the mag. Original title of the slow song seems to have been Drive with the Dead Man.

    Oh wow. Please don't tell me which song that is. I want to be surprised. And if it doesn't turn out to be In the Shadows-like, I can't be disappointed because I never knew which one it was.

    I'm listening to the transference through my studio monitors. It is fantastic - and there is a lot going on in this song.

    Hoh hoh, In the Shadows is one of my favorites. Shaking intensifies, hype reaching critical levels.

    I'm too hyped by that info.
    Seems a "serious" album with real deep meaning, love it.

    Joonas or anyone, can you upload that pic with the working titles? It would be interesting to see or read.

    From what i've got hypes from this album, it is pretty much definite that I have a new tattoo from this album. Previous was from rrthb. Sorry for the ones who hated it, for me it is a song with loads of relativity.

    Release of the single. Which means Transference in great quality. That is reason to be happy.

    That's some pretty cool info. If you get a chance could you post the working title pics? The full interview I guess it's too much plus we don't get finnish, but the working titles would be great.

    I had these thoughts about "Old vs New" Bodom debate as well but you articulated my thoughts perfectly! :worship:

    No, they're not. They just say there's a Bodom titled song again.

    The article writer just claimed out of his ass that this album somehow is a return to 1st and 2nd album "form", whatever that means. And he said "old school fans who are waiting for something like Lake Bodom, there's Bodom Blue Moon". Like all we care is the song title. Only real info in this article was Alexi saying the last two weeks of recording were stressful, and that there's never enough time.

    I do see that the songs Halo of Blood and Transference do share the spirit of the old days.
