Children Of Bodom, the esteemed Finnish heavy metal band that features frontman and modern day guitar hero Alexi Laiho releases its new album Relentless Reckless Forever in March via Universal Music/Spinefarm Records. Children Of Bodom’s enthralling mix of modern heavy metal, melodic hooks and the guitar acrobatics of Laiho have solidified the critically acclaimed quintet as one of the most revered hard rock acts in the world and one of the leading voices of metal’s new generation.
Formed in 1993 in Espoo, Finland, Children Of Bodom has built a rock solid reputation as a one of the best pure metal bands in the world. The band’s name is derived from the infamous Lake Bodom murders, which took place in Finland in 1960. Originally named Inearthed (with a series of demos to their name), Children Of Bodom can be as downright brutal as any metal band when the situation demands. But what places this band at the pinnacle of the pack is the way it can suddenly dish up huge swathes of melody and instantly memorable choruses with an unmatched degree of musicianship that has seen vocalist/guitarist Alexi “Wildchild” Laiho and his cohorts grace the covers of musician magazines around the globe.
In the time since its formation, Children Of Bodom has recorded and released six full length studio albums (Something Wild, Hatebreeder, Follow The Reaper, Hate Crew Deathroll, Are You Dead Yet? and Blooddrunk) as well as a full album of the band’s favorite cover tunes (Skeletons In The Closet). With each subsequent album, the band has honed and perfected its unique sound and today stand tall in metal’s pantheon. Long known for employing a lighthearted musical modus operandi, a weighty work ethic and a no joke dedication to its craft, Children Of Bodom has joined the ranks of the world’s finest heavy music acts.
Children of Bodom is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
