Children of Bodom returns to NYC with support from Carach Angren, Lost Society and Uncured.
Fans of the Finnish sensations in Children Of Bodom are sure going to love this Fall tour by the band as it celebrates the twentieth anniversary of their debut album “Something Wild” and you can read all about it along with the poster and tour dates down below. I’ll return at the close but you knew that already didn’t you.
The Press Release:
Finland’s melodic death superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM are returning to the states this fall for a mind-blowing celebration of 20 years since the debut of Something Wild and the beginning of the Hate Crew.
The 24-date tour will kick off on October 31st in Dallas, Texas with appearances at this year’s Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, 7 Canadian dates before concluding in Montreal on December 1st! Joining the band on the momentous occasion are Dutch masters of horror Carach Angren, Finnish thrashers Lost Society and New Jersey progressive, technical death metallers Uncured.
Alexi comments: “So my friends, after rolling thru Europe doing the 20th year anniversary tour, we were honestly pretty bummed out to find out that we wouldn’t have enough time to bring the tour to America since it was absolutely a blast for both the crowd and the band. But now I’m stoked to announce that as it turns out, we indeed will be able to do this on the other side of the pond so I’m over the top happy about that!! Remember guys, this will be a once in a lifetime experience seeing us playing all kinds of obscure tracks off the first album, stuff from the 2nd & 3rd albums that we ain’t played in over 15 years and the general rule really is that there will not be a single song newer than the Hate Crew Deathroll tracks so it’s all about old school COB! So even if Something Wild isn’t your favorite album, I can guarantee that it will be entertaining, nostalgic and flat out funny as hell to be a part of this madness so that’s one party you just cannot miss! I hope to see you there ladies and gents!”

A few months ago I posted a touring announcement for Marduk’s upcoming “Frontschwein” Tour which you can review on THIS LINK. The tour was set to begin today but earlier in the AM hours the band Marduk released a statement citing that their Visas were causing an issue. Read on below.
“We are outraged as we have bad news for our US fans…Still today, we’re still experiencing unexpected delays with immigration, causing us to wait a few more days before traveling to North America. We realistically expect to be able to start our tour early next week, although there’s no way to be 100% sure since it’s in the hands of the government. We ask that you please be understanding of the situation, as we’re trying to come over as soon as we get clearance. In the meantime, keep supporting the other bands on the package – Rotting Christ, Carach Angren and Necronomicon – who will still perform as planned. Apologies for this unfortunate situation, which is out of our control, More news will follow after Labor Day weekend.” /Marduk

I guess I must have missed attending a tour somewhere along the line because it’s been a pretty decent amount of time since I last caught the mighty Marduk. According to this press copy the band has not crossed the Atlantic to deliver their crushing sounds to our Metal masses since 2013 and that’s too long in the minds of their loyalists. To those fans I say “Rejoice” as Marduk recently announced the “Frontschwein 2016” tour and its coming right at us. This news had already started being circulated on Facebook but we need to wait for the full on press releases here at the Metal Command HQ to ensure all the facts are on point. Read on.
