Flagships of the Finnish metal scene and the most successful group in the style of melodic death metal - Children of the Lake Bodom, they are magnificent Children of Bodom, will celebrate their anniversary in Russia!
Their unorthodox name Children of Bodom was borrowed from the horror story of the unsolved murder of three teenagers, which occurred on June 5, 1960 on the shore of Lake Bodom, not far from the Finnish capital. The songs of the group contain references to various horror films and thrillers: "Nightmare on Elm Street", "Exorcist of the Devil", "Children of the Corn", "Twin Peaks", as well as to mystical television series and crazy TV shows. In some tracks citations are used, in others - sound fragments that paint surrealistic pictures on the canvas of heavy and high-speed music CoB.
On the classification of the genre Children of Bodom, and to this day, disputes between fans and critics, which rank the group for such styles as melodic death metal, power metal, speed metal, thrash metal ... continue to dominate the group's frontier. Alexi Laiho prefers to define the style of the group as "Just metal" and nothing else.
What fans adore the music of Children of Bodom has been unchanged for two decades now - it's a crazy speed and rhythm, brutal vocals and driving guitar riffs that combine melodies and technical solo parts. In 2017, the Children of Bodom celebrates the anniversary - the powerful debut album of the band "Something Wild" was released exactly 20 years ago, marking the professional birth of the collective.
To celebrate this epoch-making event, superstars of melodic Finnish death metal go on a European tour tour, preparing for the fans a stunning setlist of songs.
