Jaska Raatikainen (drummer) of Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM has issued the following update:
"Today we had the last rehearsals before entering the studio tomorrow to record drums for the new album.
"Last two days have been quite intensive. Playing the songs over and over again, lots of fuck-ups and broken drum sticks, sweating, frustration, coffee and what have you, a little bit of arranging and all that shit.
"I am convinced that the new songs are great. A little bit of black metal, heavy metal, metal, old-school death metal, melodies, solos and anything you need to make a nice album. And the most important, new ideas à la CHILDREN OF BODOM!"
