Dark Tranquillity vs. Children of Bodom – Death Match

Dark Tranquillity vs. Children of Bodom
Century Media / Nuclear Blast

Swedish melodic death merchants Dark Tranquillity pulled out a phenomenal win against the Black Dahlia Murder in our latest Death Match. Seemingly as underdogs, Dark Tranquillity managed to defeat TBDM by an impressive margin, but the Swedish metalers have their hands full in this latest battle, as they contend with one of Finland’s biggest metal exports.

Children of Bodom recently released the track ‘Transference’ from their upcoming album, ‘Halo of Blood.’ The song is classic Bodom, with guitar vs. keyboard battles, powerful riffage and the gritty vocals of frontman Alexi Laiho. ‘Halo of Blood’ comes out June 11, and we can tell you first-hand that it’s absolutely worth a good listen.

Can Dark Tranquillity close the coffin on Children of Bodom? Or will the Finnish giants spill the blood of their Swedish adversaries? The choice is yours, and yours alone. Pick your favorite track in the poll below!

(This Death Match ends on Tuesday, May 14, at 10AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
