Children Of Bodom Details

Children Of Bodom
with Battlecross & Guests

What started out as a youngsters’ combo in 1993 struck the worldwide music scene in 1997 with a debut that truly lived up to its name – “Something Wild”. From then on, the evolution of Finnish five-piece CHILDREN OF BODOM has grown into one huge success story, unmatched by any other up-and-coming Scandinavian metal export to date. Followed up by 1999’s “Hatebreeder” and the Millennium release “Follow The Reaper”, COB’s first three albums on Nuclear Blast Records set new standards in the field of brutal and fast but yet highly melodic heavy music, especially impressing with front man Alexi Laiho’s incredible versatility and jaw-dropping skills, who’s been elected “best metal guitarist” by the readers of renowned “Guitar World” magazin in the past, among countless other decorations.

Four more smash records – namely “Hate Crew Deathroll” (2003), “Are You Dead Yet?” (2005), “Blooddrunk” (2008) and “Relentless Reckless Forever” (2011) – gradually let more modern influences flow into the Finn’s style, without ever neglecting their trademark mixture of rough vocals, shredding riff attacks and catchy keys. A formula for success that led to consecutive #1 chart entries in Finland for their last four records as well as to gold status for their entire discography. Moreover, CHILDREN OF BODOM have made the world’s biggest stages their second home over the years, playing the most important festivals such as the Wacken:Open:Air, Hellfest, Graspop, Loud Park Festival and Bloodstock on a regular basis and attaining a tremendous following all around the globe.
