Children of Bodom

Children of Bodom appearing at this event

Children of Bodom are a Finnish heavy metal band who 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. Frontman and founding member, Alexi Laiho, died in December 2020 at the age of 41.
