In an interview with Noisecreep, Children Of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho, told that the band is in the process of writing new material for their upcoming album, scheduled to be released in late 2010/early 2011.
"We're gonna start writing music and hopefully we'll be able to take some time so we can come up with some really cool songs. I already have a bunch of new riffs that I'm happy with, so hopefully we'll just keep being productive."
Children of Bodom have studio time booked for early summer, which should give them at least five months to write the new material. "We're doing three shows in Finland in April, but other than that we're just going to be working really hard, so there won't be much happening until we're done with the record," Laiho further adds.

"Such an invitation from the organisation of the Indian Music Conference makes me feel very honoured and privileged. Thank you for making our dream come true. We are really eager to get to know our Indian fans and friends, moreover, to learn more about your culture, heritage and nature. I've been interested in Indian culture and cooking for years (ask my family and band members about "Friday evening at my house"!), but my kitchen seriously needs some real Indian hot spices and my shelves some new books. Leaves' Eyes in Goa will be just the perfect mix of "musical spices", cultures and interests coming together!"
