Children Of Bodom have their own beer now

Posted by on February 6, 2019

Today it is more metal than ever to have your own beer! Having a huge name in metal like Children Of Bodom will help you sell some six packs but it also helps to have a great story!

On the heels of the release of another legendary bands new brew, Children Of Bodom are throwing their collective hats in the ring partnering with Fat Lizard Brewing Co. and creating Lake Bodom Pre-Prohibition Lager, a beer brewed using water from Lake Bodom itself.

The lake resides in the bands hometown of Espoo, Finland and is the scene of a brutal incident in 1960 in which three teenagers were murdered and a fourth badly injured. The case is as yet unsolved and was the inspiration for the bands name. Indeed a great story.

Watch for Lake Bodom Pre-Prohibition Lager as it became available in Finland, on February 1st.

Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley may have a fan in Taylor Swift

Posted by on January 14, 2019

Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley was shocked to discover an old polaroid of Taylor Swift posted on Facebook, in which the pop icon is sitting in front of a metal door upon which one of his lyrics is written. The line, “If you leave me, I’m coming with you.” from the Every Time I Die song, “Buffalo 666”, is written on the door that Swift sits in front of. The Polaroid was part of Swift’s fifth studio album 2014’s 1989. You can call it a bonus feature? The record came with five polaroids, each with Swift’s lyrics handwritten on the bottom. What could this possibly mean? Draw your own conclusions. Social media is indeed a vortex of mystery and fascination!
