Finnish metal heroes Children of Bodom will be releasing 'Relentless Reckless Forever,' their seventh studio album, on March 8. Produced by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet), the nine-song collection features some of the most exciting guitar playing and inspired songwriting in the quintet's career so far. One of the most compelling aspects of 'Relentless Reckless Forever' is its range.

Alongside head-rippers like 'Shovel Knockout' sit arena-ready anthems such as 'Was It Worth It?' "The single 'Was It Worth It?' is a total party song," said Children of Bodom singer-guitarist Alexi Laiho. "It's not your typical Bodom sound, but it's one of my favorites and heavy as hell."

In advance of the album's March 8th release, the band has announced a very special fan flyaway contest. CoB have teamed up with Microsoft to give U.S. fans the chance to be flown to the UK on April 9th to see the band perform live as part of the "Children of Bodom Relentless London Sweepstakes." Full details for the contest can be seen at
