Song of the Week – Halo of Blood
Posted by Reggie
I guess it’s time to feature something new. Children of Bodom released Halo of Blood yesterday and though I haven’t had much time to really check it out, I do look forward to seeing if there is any improvement. Not that I thought their last album, Relentless, Reckless Forever, was bad, it was better than Blooddrunk. I am not sure if that holds any weight in the grand scheme of things…but let’s move on.
The title track of the album is presented before us as the Song of the Week. I have to say I am surprised by the aggressive intro to this song. It does level out a bit with traditional Children of Bodom melody, but the bursts of near Black metal riffs impress me. Overall, it’s not bad and I look forward to listening to the rest of the album in the very near future. What say you? Improvement, status quo, or a step in the wrong direction?
