Germany's Metal Hammer magazine recently conducted an interview with bassist Henkka Blacksmith of Finland's CHILDREN OF BODOM. During the interview, Henkka revealed how he, as a boy, listened to metal music while playing table tennis in the basement. Additionally, he explained why SLAYER's Kerry King is the most "metal" person and why he loves to tour the USA.

CHILDREN OF BODOM's video for the new single "Blooddrunk" can be viewed below. The clip, which was produced by Katapult Filmproduktion, was shot in the former Nazi barracks in Krampnitz in the vicinity of Berlin, Germany, where the Russian army was stationed before the German reunion.
Check out pictures from the video shoot at this location.
Spinefarm Records will release a digipack version of CHILDREN OF BODOM's new album, "Blooddrunk", on April 9. The set will include a bonus DVD featuring the songs mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, the "Blooddrunk" video, a "making-of-the-video" segment, and a photo gallery. In addition, the CD will feature CHILDREN OF BODOM's cover of STAN JONES' "Ghost Riders In The Sky" as a bonus track.
A new CHILDREN OF BODOM song, entitled "Banned From Heaven", is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off, "Blooddrunk", which is scheduled for release in North America on April 15 via Spinefarm/Fontana International. The CD is due in Europe on April 7 via Spinefarm Records (two days later in Finland). Check out the album artwork here.

Fan-filmed video footage of Finnish female-fronted metal band AMBERIAN DAWN performing the song "Evil Inside Me" at this year's Finnish Metal Expo on February 16, 2008 in Helsinki, Finland can be viewed below.
AMBERIAN DAWN released its debut album, "River of Tuoni", on January 30 via Suomen Musiikki. Two tracks from the CD — "Valkyries" and "River Of Tuoni" — can currently be streamed on the group's MySpace page.
Commented the band: "Our label, Suomen Musiikki, has defined AMBERIAN DAWN's music as fantasy metal, but as always, the genre borders are very thin and hard to define. Our music has definitely fantasy in its lyrics... but melody and rhythm are the key components."
AMBERIAN DAWN is:
Heidi Parviainen - Vocals
Tuomas Seppälä - Guitar and Keyboards
Kasperi Heikkinen - Rhythm Guitar
Tommi Kuri - Bass
Tom Sagar - Keyboards
Joonas Pykälä-Aho - Drums
