“Transference” is COB’s latest video:

“Liquor” is SCORPION CHILD’s latest lyric video:

Halo Of Blood was recorded at Danger Johnny Studios in Helsinki, Finland with recording engineer Mikko Karmila, who worked on the Hatebreeder (1999), Follow the Reaper (2001), and Hate Crew Deathroll (2003) albums.  Producer Peter Tägtgren (Immortal, Marduk, Amon Amarth) oversaw production on both vocals and keyboards.  The album was mixed at Finland’s famed Finnvox Studios.  Cover artwork was created by artist Sam Saramäki, known for his work on classic COB records such as Follow The Reaperand 2005’s Are You Dead Yet?.

Primed to join the elite ranks of rock’s present day flag bearers such as Graveyard, The Sword, Wolfmother, and Rival Sons, SCORPION CHILD‘s first studio album – produced and arranged by Chris “Frenchie” Smith (The Answer, Jet, And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, The Toadies, Dax Riggs) – is a shining contribution to the latest annuls in rock’s still-evolving history.
