Those Finnish widdlers of all things guitar, Children of Bodom, have a new studio album coming out next month. It’s their eighth LP. Eighth! It’s called Halo Of Blood, and they’re pretty damn pleased with it. So much so that they sent us a video of frontman/guitarist Alexi Laiho and bassist/backing vocalist Henkka Seppälä telling us what their favourite individual tracks from the album are.

Slash carries a name, and an image, that has become synonymous with rock music; from the iconic opening blast of ‘Welcome to the Jungle’, through to his bolshy groove-ridden tenure for Velvet Revolver, this is a man who’s been an ambassador for hard rock ever since the late-80s heyday of Guns N’ Roses. It’s down to being such an enduring masthead of rock music – even if his cultural zenith peaked twenty years ago – that every new Slash record must drag the weight of his much more prosperous days behind him.
