Popular Finnish metallers Children of Bodom have officially unchained the video for their recently premiered single "Transference" off the upcoming record "Halo of Blood."
Due on June 11, the new album will mark the eighth release in the group's catalogue, the first one since 2011's "Relentless Reckless Forever."
Starting off with an ominous intro, the tune quickly turns into a blast fest, pounding out strong drum beats accompanied by screeching guitars and Alexi Laiho's signature growling voice. The band delivers a handful of their classic sound here, and with a distinctive lead guitar line stretching throughout the entire track and a monster riff in the bridge, they clearly manage to deliver.
Overall, we have a solid track here with good performances all around. Speaking of which, make sure not to skip the guitar and keyboard solo part, as you'll miss nifty tricks galore. If you're a Bodom fan, you'll definitely need to check this one out, and even if you're not, we recommend at least taking a quick peak, as the song has easily earned a firm thumbs up in our book.
"'Transference' has an evil vibe to it which I wish I knew how to explain because it still gives me chills," commented Laiho via official website. "This is one of our favorite tracks from the new album. Enjoy!"
The group's previous effort, "Relentless Reckless Forever," saw its release back in March 2011, also via Nuclear Blast Records. With a total length if just over 35 minutes, it managed to debut at No. 42 on the Billboard 200 chart.
