Unless I am wrong here, its been a pretty long time between headlining dates for Children Of Bodom in this part of the world. Yes they were headlining the Musician’s Institute stage at the Rockstar Mayhem Festival this past summer, and a couple of years ago they toured with Black Label Society and even on a Gigantour with Megadeth but as far as a full-scale headlining run – nope. It’s been awhile. That said, please allow me to showcase that the “Halo Of Blood Over America Tour” is going to be hitting the venues near you in early 2014. They’ll be joined by Tyr and “special guests” who we do not yet know who are at this writing. Read more below.
The thunderous storm is coming as Amon Amarth brings their “Deceiver Of The Gods” Tour to North America and will do so with support from Enslaved and Skeletonwitch. Now that is going to be an exciting show. Check out the poster.
Here’s a powerful package to check out, it seems that Wintersun is coming back for a headlining run of the US. Since the press release addresses some of the items I was going to bring up, I will leave it at this and say check out the poster, press copy and dates. I’ll return at the close to offer up some additional thoughts.
