"Blooddrunk", the new album from Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM, sold 19,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart. This is roughly four times the opening tally of its predecessor, "Are You Dead Yet?", which premiered with 5,000 units back in October 2005 to land at No. 195.

"Blooddrunk" has registered the following first-week chart positions so far:

Finland: #1
Japan: #2 (International)
Canada: #7
Sweden: #8
Germany: #10
USA: #22
Ireland: #51

"Blooddrunk" was certified gold in Finland (for sales in excess of 15,000 copies) on pre-sales alone — before it was even officially released — a first for the band.

The CD was released in North America on April 15 via Spinefarm/Fontana International.

According to a posting on the CHILDREN OF BODOM fan site Scythes Of Bodom, the band will take part in a tribute album to the Finnish group DINGO with a cover version of "Valkoiset Tiikerit" (translated as "White Tigers"), a song which originally appeared on DINGO's 1985 album "Kerjalaisten Valtakunta".

DINGO is a Finnish rock band formed around 1982 which fused Finnish melancholy with catchy rock melodies. The group's success lasted only for a couple of years before calling it quits in October 1986. They regrouped in 1998 and continue to perform occasionally.

"Hellhounds On My Trail", the new CHILDREN OF BODOM single, is all set for release on June 9 via Spinefarm Records UK. The follow-up to the "Blooddrunk" single, also the title of the Finnish band's latest album, "Hellhounds…" will be made available on two separate formats:

* CD single featuring two cover versions (by KENNY ROGERS and ALICE COOPER), three live tracks recorded at the London Astoria in March 2008 plus the "Hellhounds…" video.
* 12" picture disc.

Both formats will come with brand new artwork exclusive to the UK version of the single.

To support the release of "Hellhounds…", CHILDREN OF BODOM has lined up signing sessions at Zavvi stores in Ireland and Scotland; the first is in Dublin (Dundrum) on June 11 at 4:30 p.m., and the second in Glasgow (Buchanan St.) on June 12 at 5:00 p.m. The band will also play live in both towns:

June 11 - Dublin, Vicar Street

Can't be worse than the death metal cover to KI$$ "Reason To Live." That is so horribly bad that I laugh every damn time. In fact, that's the only reason I play it!

It's some compilation I have. Basically they take a bunch of 3 minute KI$$ songs and make them about a minute and a half.
