And now, about three years after their last album, I Worship Chaos, they have released their tenth new The album, Hexed, is out now. I've been told it's catchier than before. That's true, it's easier to get to grips with when you listen to it, but if you listen closely, there are some crazy parts. It is," says Alexi, "full of killer tunes that are both easy to listen to and musical It's a masterpiece that combines quality with quality. In other words, if you're a fan of Chilbod as usual, you won't be disappointed. That's what I mean. Alexi's guitars and Janne's keyboards weave a superb melody, fast guitar Solo, and the grooves they have boldly embraced in the 21st century and beyond. Everything about Children of Bodom is packed into this album. The opening track "Dis Road" is a bit unusual for their opening number, but it From then on, the band was in full swing with their usual Children of Bodom style.

A number of high quality numbers that are musically advanced, yet never reject the listener. in Alexi's The Local Band (in an '80s hard rock cover band) must have had an impact as well. Overall, the changes in Janne's keyboard arrangements are also significant. This is also the first time that Daniel Freyberg, the second guitarist, has participated in this album.
The mix was done by the familiar Mikko Carmilla, whose 1998 single "Downfall Mikko has been working with the band for 20 years, from the time of their first release, to the time of the Chilvod works, so he is very much in tune with the band. Needless to say, the sound quality is top notch.
Hexed is aptly described as a "melodic rock 'n' roll rumpage". Children of Bodom's long awaited new album is a must for both old and new Chilbod fans. It is a powerful piece of work that convinces.
