Band Photo: Children of Bodom (?)

Formed: 1993
From: Helsinki, Finland
Last Known Status: Active

Background

Children of Bodom was bred in spring 1993 when guitarist Alexi Laiho (Sinergy, Kylähullut, ex-Impaled Nazarene, Thy Serpent) and drummer Jaska Raatikainen (Virtuocity) decided to form a death metal band under the moniker "Inearthed." They recruited bassist Samuli Miettinen and recorded their first demo "Implosion of Heaven" in 1994. Soon after, the band added guitarist Alexander Kuoppala and keyboardist Jani Pera Pirisjoki. Later on, Miettinen and Pirisjoki left the band and Henkka Seppäla (bass) and Janne Warman (keyboards; Warmen) joined in.

With their own money, the band recorded their debut album "Something Wild" in 1997, blending elements of speed, death and power metal. The album impressed Spinefarm Records so much that they decided to sign the band. Inearthed changed its name to Children of Bodom (named after a notorious mass murdering that occured at Lake Bodom just outside of Helsinki in 1960) in order to get out of their previous contract with a Belgian label. Children of Bodom got a licensing deal with Nuclear Blast to handle releases to the rest of Europe.

Alexander left the band in July 2003, leaving fans in shock as the band had said that they would quit if one of its members left. But Alexi said "Children of Bodom ain't ready to fucking die yet!" as they recruited Alexi's fellow Sinergy guitarist, Roope Latvala (Walhalla, ex-Stone, To/Die/For, Waltari). After ruling Europe, Children of Bodom began to take over North America with their first ever North American tour with Dimmu Borgir in late 2003.

Interview With Children of Bodom Bassist

Shehzaad Jiwani of ChartAttack.com recently conducted an interview with CHILDREN OF BODOM bassist Henkka Seppälä. A few excerpts from the chat follow:

On opening for SLAYER on this summer's Unholy Alliance tour:

"When we heard we were able to go open for SLAYER, it was like a dream come true. When we saw the billing, with LAMB OF GOD and MASTODON, we were like, 'What the fuck?' This is the best tour this year, probably. It's been even better than we thought, with a lot of people, and everybody in the crew in the touring party is really cool."

On having to work to win over new fans:

"I think it's very interesting. It helps get things more interesting, and it would be boring if you're always headlining, headlining, headlining. It's fun to go and get back in a good way to play in front of people who have never heard of you. It's a challenge. On this tour, since most of the people haven't really heard about us in most areas, when we get on stage it's kind of like we have to show the people what we are. Instead of just playing the hit songs, it's more showing them what CHILDREN OF BODOM are all about."

On the group's current setlist:

"We basically just tried to make the set that would present CHILDREN OF BODOM as all the different styles and things that we have. We have a fast track, we have a slow track, we have everything. We tried to play songs off each album, but we only have eight songs to play. Most nights, there's so many people that have never heard of us, so we tried to present them something so that they could get an idea of how CHILDREN OF BODOM really is."

On the prospects of his group's genre

"It's great to see how big metal can be nowadays and still be true to itself. Take a look at LAMB OF GOD, who sell 250,000 albums or whatever. That's a lot of records. But when you go to see them live, they're fucking metal and they're fucking brutal. That's one of the things that makes me really happy about modern metal. It makes me happy that you can be really big even though you're still doing real metal, and with no compromises."

Children of Bodom Explain Saskatoon No-Show

Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM have posted the following message on their official web site:

"Many fans complained that CHILDREN OF BODOM didn't show up on a promoted gig in Saskatoon, Canada on July 10th which was never officially confirmed by the band or their booking agency. This gig wasn't listed in the official tour dates and the band wasn't even aware that the promoter used their name for this gig. The band is very sorry about this mess but it wasn't their fault at all."

Commented CHILDREN OF BODOM bassist Henkka T. Blacksmith: "CHILDREN OF BODOM was not supposed to play in Saskatoon on 10th July. We were already in Edmonton that night. Saskatoon show was only for THINE EYES BLEED, MASTODON and LAMB OF GOD. We heard today that the promoter had put our name on the posters, which is totally wrong. That way he got there more BODOM fans, to get better ticket sales maybe. It is just very very wrong that now some people drove over two hours to see BODOM, even though the band was never meant to be on the bill.

"We are so sorry about this! It was a mistake, or 'mistake,' from Saskatoon venue's promoter. We did not cancel the show. I understand it pisses people off to come to the show and then realize the band is not playing. But as I said, we were never supposed to be there in the first place."

CHILDREN OF BODOM have set "Chaos Ridden Years – Stockholm Knockout Live" as the title of their upcoming DVD, due on October 10, 2006. The disc is estimated to contain over three hours of non-stop COB action, including a live concert, videos, and a rare documentary on the band from past to present.

Directed by Patric Ullaeus of the Revolver Film Company, the DVD will mainly focus on the February 5, 2006 live concert at Arenan in Stockholm, Sweden, featuring over 90 minutes of live excitement.

Unholy Alliance Tour Pushed Back To June 15

The Slayer-headlined "Unholy Alliance Tour: Preaching to the Perverted," has confirmed that the tour will kick off on June 15 in Camden, NJ and not in Peoria, IL on June 10 as had been previously announced.

The rescheduling is due to Slayer's bassist/vocalist Tom Araya's minor gall bladder surgery which successfully took place earlier this month.

"We wanted to give Tom an extra few days to make sure that he's at 100% before he puts one foot on the road," said Slayer's manager Rick Sales. We apologise for any confusion that this has caused, but Tom and the band want the fans to get the best Slayer shows possible."

The St. Louis date, originally scheduled for June 12, has been moved to June 21; Chicago, originally set for June 13, is now scheduled for June 20. The entire itinerary for Slayer's ""Unholy Alliance Tour: Preaching to the Perverted," featuring Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Mastodon, and Thine
Eyes Bleed, is as follows: More...

Unholy Alliance Tour Delayed, More Slayer News

The Slayer-headlined "Unholy Alliance Tour: Preaching to the Perverted," featuring Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Mastodon, and Thine Eyes Bleed, and originally slated to launch on 6.6.06 in San Diego, CA will now kick off on June 10 at the East Peoria Convention Center in Peoria, IL.

Postponed and rescheduled shows are:

San Diego, CA - originally June 6 at the Sports Arena, now rescheduled for July 20 at the Sports Arena
Las Vegas, NV - originally June 7 at The Orleans, now rescheduled for July 24 at The Orleans
Denver, CO - originally June 9 at the Fillmore Auditorium, now rescheduled for July 26 at the Fillmore Auditorium

In addition, two sold-out "warm up" dates - June 2 at New Oasis in Reno, NV, and June 3 at Senator Theatre in Chico, CA - will be rescheduled to take place following the Denver date at the end of July.

Tickets purchased for all postponed dates will be honored at the rescheduled concerts.

The postponement of the tour's start date is due to Slayer bassist/vocalist Tom Araya's minor gallbladder surgery which successfully took place late last week. Araya is doing fine, recuperating at home.

With the tour's kick off now June 10, Six-Six-O-Six will still be a special day for Slayer fans. On that day, Slayer will release "Eternal Pyre," a limited edition EP that will preview "Cult," a brand-new song from the band's as yet untitled new album (due out July 25), a live version of "Dead Skin Mask" recorded at last year's Full Force Festival, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the new album, and, originally available only on 1995's now out-of-print "Live Intrusion" video, a 5-minute clip of the Slayer fan who carved the band's name into his forearm. "Eternal Pyre" will be available exclusively at all Hot Topic stores.

The members of Slayer - Araya, Kerry King/guitars, Jeff Hanneman/guitars, and drummer Dave Lombardo - are in the final stages of completing their new album, Slayer's first new studio album since Lombardo rejoined the band in 2003. The new album is being produced by Josh Abraham and executive produced by Rick Rubin and will be released on Slayer's long-time label, Rubin's American Recordings.

Titles for some of the album's new songs include "Cult," "Consfearcy," "Eyes of the Insane," and "Jihad." In a recent interview with MTV, Araya said about the new album, "It's fast - maybe faster than anything we've done before. No one's going to be disappointed. It's going to be brutal."

Confirmed tour dates for the "Unholy Alliance Tour: Preaching to the Perverted" are as follows: More...

Report

COB, Chimaira and TTEOTD Rock The Recher Theater

On Tuesday, March 21 I decided to end my several month drought on seeing live shows and go out to see Through The Eyes of the Dead, Chimaira and Children of Bodom play at my new favorite venue, The Recher Theater, in Baltimore, MD. This single movie theater converted to a club/concert hall with a capacity of 700 was sold out and quite packed. The lineup looked good and I didn’t want to miss a chance to catch Through the Eyes of the Dead, who have breathed some much needed life into the largely stale genre of death metal. And ever since “The Impossibility of Reason” and their latest self-titled album, I will gladly see Chimaira any time they come to town. More...

We chose to book most of the tour's shows at indoor venues, as that allows the bands and the fans amenities like air conditioning and indoor bathrooms, as well as the very best stage lighting, production, and sound and less expensive concession prices. The few shows that will be played outside will be played at night in permanent facilities with our lighting, production, and so on. Everyone wins."

First Unholy Alliance 2006 Tour Dates and More

The fury surrounding Slayer's upcoming album and recently announced "The Unholy Alliance Tour - Preaching to the Perverted" has not died down and new information is still being revealed piece by piece.

The four original members of SLAYER ­ Tom Araya/bass, vocals, Kerry King/guitars, Jeff Hanneman/guitars, and Dave Lombardo/drums - the pioneers and undisputed kings of extreme speed/thrash metal, have entered a Los Angeles-area studio to record what will be their first new studio album since 1990's "Seasons In The Abyss." Rick Rubin, who helped solidify the much-emulated Slayer sound beginning with their genre-defining 1986 classic "Reign In Blood," has taken the helm as executive producer of the project.

Working closely with Rubin will be Josh Abraham (Korn, Velvet Revolver, Atreyu) who will produce the album. "We're real happy to have Josh on the team," said Slayer's Jeff Hanneman. "He's a very creative and intuitive guy, he knows music, and he really gets who Slayer is and what we're doing." The as yet untitled album will be released on Slayer's long-time label, Rubin's American Recordings/Warner Bros. Records, and is expected out this fall. As previously reported, The new album is expected to feature 11 songs, one of which will carry the title of "Cult".

"Dave's been back with us, playing live, for a couple of years now, and we're all looking forward to recording together again," said the band's Tom Araya. Kerry King added, "There really is no one like Dave ­ he doesn't have to work at what he does, he just walks in, picks up his sticks and goes."

Said Lombardo, "It feels really good being back with the same guys I started out with. The chemistry is definitely there, that's the exciting part of it, to capture that chemistry again. And that's what is happening."

Jeff, Tom and Kerry have been writing songs for this new album since they wrapped their last North American tour in September 2004. "This is probably the most prepared we've been to record an album since the 80s," King added. "We've been writing and cutting demos for months." While these may change, working titles for some of the songs that will be recorded include "Catalyst," "Cult," "Supremist," and "Consfearacy." "I like to write songs that have different meanings for different people," said King, "where everyone can say, ŒI know what he means,' but still get their own sense of what the song is about."

Finally, on 6.6.06 (a date already snatched up by for numerous death metal releases, most notably Deicide's) in San Diego, CA, Slayer will kick off a seven-week summer trek, "The Unholy Alliance Tour ­ Preaching to the Perverted," that boasts what has got to be the genre's coolest line-up of the summer ­ Lamb of God, Mastodon and Children of Bodom (who will rotate the second and third slots), and Thine Eyes Bleed who will open the shows. Not only is the line-up terrific, but ticket prices will reportedly not exceed $39.00, giving fans a great value for their dollar.

According to Slayer's long-time manager Rick Sales, "We want to make 'The Unholy Alliance' tour an annual global event, so we decided to be smart about the design from the beginning. We chose to book most of the tour's shows at indoor venues, as that allows the bands and the fans amenities like air conditioning and indoor bathrooms, as well as the very best stage lighting, production, and sound and less expensive concession prices. The few shows that will be played outside will be played at night in permanent facilities with our lighting, production, and so on. Everyone wins."

With more dates and details to be added, the confirmed dates so far for "The Unholy Alliance Tour ­ Preaching to the Perverted" are as follows:

June 6 - Sports Arena, San Diego, CA
June 7 - The Orleans, Las Vegas, NV
June 12 - Pop's Outside, St. Louis, MO
June 13 - Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, IL

Children of Bodom Film Are You Dead Yet

The following update has been posted at CHILDREN OF BODOM's official web site:

"Last night [March 4] in the annual Emma-Gaala (Finnish equivalent of the Grammys), CHILDREN OF BODOM were presented the Export Emma 2006 for their accomplishments in exporting Finnish music. The whole award ceremony was aired live on national TV.

"In other news, the band recently shot a new promo video for the title song of their newest album 'Are You Dead Yet?'. The quintet ended their European tour in Tavastia, Helsinki on February 11th and returned the same club two days later to shoot the playing parts for the aforementioned video. The story parts of the video were shot beforehand in America."

CHILDREN OF BODOM will be teaming up with SLAYER, LAMB OF GOD, MASTODON and THINE EYES BLEED for the Unholy Alliance Tour beginning in early June. So far, only one date has been announced: June 16 at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, NJ. Tickets for the Continental show will go on sale on Saturday, March 11. As previously reported, the trek will make stops in most major cities, although the actual routing of the run is still being fleshed out.
