With Halo of Blood, their eighth studio album, hitting stores on June 11, Children of Bodom have issued a new track called "Transference" to whet our appetites. Check out the track here.

The Finnish metal beasts recorded Halo of Blood with longtime engineer Mikko Karmila and Hypocrisy mainman Peter Tägtgren who also worked with Children of Bodom on their Follow the Reaper and Hate Crew Deathroll albums.

"'Transference' has an evil vibe to it which I wish I knew how to explain because it still gives me chills," says Children of Bodom guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho. "This is one of our favorite tracks from the new album. Enjoy!"

"Transference" is available on iTunes now. Fans who pre-order Halo of Blood on iTunes in advance of its release can download the new song immediately.
