Dark Tranquillity vs. Children of Bodom – Death Match
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.
