Children of Bodom

Supporting their tenth studio album titled Hexed (out now on Nuclear Blast), Finnish melodic metal favorites Children of Bodom ended their late winter / early spring North American trek at New York City’s Irving Plaza on April 19.

Bodom played a few new tracks during their 13-song set in NYC, including the catchy “Platitudes and Barren Words,” along with “This Road,” “Under Grass and Clover,” and “Hecate’s Nightmare.” Their main set consisted of mostly cuts off their LPs Are You Dead Yet? (2005), Hate Crew Deathroll (2003), Follow the Reaper (2000), and I Worship Chaos (2015), performing big tracks like “In Your Face,” “Bodom Beach Terror,” “Everytime I Die,” “I Worship Chaos,” “Angels Don’t Kill” and more. The band reserved “Downfall” off of Hatebreeder (1999) for the grand finale of their huge two-song encore finisher.

Next up for COB, they’ll play ‘Graspop Metal Meeting’ in Belgium in June, plus ‘Rockharz Open Air’ in Germany, ‘Rock Fest Barcelona’ in Spain and more over the summer. Get more tour info here.
