Children Of Bodom bassist Henkka T. Blacksmith has posted the following update online:

"Two weeks already behind. We started this leg in Finland. And of course, the first shows on tours are always the most difficult. So it was a shame it happened to be our home town. Technical problems (always happens with first shows) affected our sound and lights. But we tried our best to kick ass. Tampere was also bad for us cos most of the people were still outside when we started playing.

"But ever since things have gotten better, and in Oslo things were already really good. We've played for big crowds. It is sometimes really challenging to get people excited, first band, early night, big cold hall and so on. Choosing 7 songs for setlist is also very difficult thing.

"It is also very nice to be back touring in central Europe. Feels like it s been ages when were here last time. For me the best shows have been so far maybe Paris and Oslo. And of course the intense sweaty headliner in Hamburg in between. That day a friend of mine took me to the St. Pauli game. It was awesome. After the second show in Paris we saw Soilwork show next door! Its great to see Peter back in business, they were tight!

"Big thing for us was to play the very first COB show in Denmark. That was exciting and crowd was treating us well there too!

"In Amsterdam I went to see a national game, Holland - Sweden, at the famous Ajax stadium. It was awesome to see that legendary place. Litmanen.

"We've had good times with the other bands. Everybody's treating us well.

"Tonight we have another headliner, in Saarbrucken, southwest Germany. Its been snowing here."
