Children Of Bodom Announce “I Worship Chaos” Tour For Fall 2016

As the summer closes up kinda sorta, the tour announcements for the Fall are steadily streaming in and I apologize if I have said this the exact same way in another one of these posts. My time is rather limited today because I am heading out to see one of the final US shows in the storied career of the mighty Black Sabbath. They’re playing the PNC Bank Arts Center tonight and I have noticed that a select amount of tickets are still available for the interested parties. If you are in the vicinity I say go my friends because this really is apparently it. So with that being said, it was super cool to see that COB was heading our way once again and the poster, press release and dates all follow down below. Check it out.

Alexi Laiho comments, “We’re happy to have finally put something cool together for our upcoming US headline tour with Oni, Emortus and the one and only Abbath so I’d say this tour is more than worth checkin’ out!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Alright so since I am pressed for time I am keeping this brief. COB were excellent when they opened up for Megadeth a few months ago but wow such a short set. You are going to want to see them when they are commanding the night for sure. Having missed the brief headlining run that Abbath did, and being a fan of Immortal, I am going to want to see that part of the show as well and honestly the guys in Exmortus are totally worthy of your Metal devotion and I can say that from experience. The band Oni is completely new to me but I am going to give them a chance and I think that you should too. With bands like Black Sabbath closing up their historic books for the Metal genre its more important than ever that fans of that which is heavy aim their focus at the other stuff that is going on. You never know what might suit your fancy. Alright readers I need to get some other things done before I head to NJ but you can let me know what you think about this tour in the comments section below. Bring it on.
