Children of Bodom's Alexi Laiho Breaks Arm On Tour

Band Photo: Children of Bodom (?)

Children of Bodom's official fansite Scythes of Bodom has issued the following statement about Alexi Laiho breaking his arm:

"Oops!... I did it again

"In the middle of Children Of Bodom's current North American tour with Lamb of God, Alexi's well-known tendency to break bones has struck again. In his latest twitter update, K-Man reports that the Wildchild has broken his arm after falling from his top bunk. Apparently Alexi is still able to perform but he's having to take strong painkillers and to wear a sling when he's not playing. Rock 'n' roll or what! Let's hope the break heals quickly."

What's Next?

I'm not a big fan but I've never had anything against Bodom (other than the flashy synths being a bit too high in the mix). The main reason I'm catching them is that they're sharing a bill with LOG and Municipal Waste. God Forbid and and Children of Bodom are just icing on the cake, as I hear they both put on a mean show. As I Lay Dying is the only band I'd rather pass on.

Yeah personally I skipped God Forbid and Municipal waste only because I listened to them way to much and was practically burned out by the time they got here. LOG and Bodom were awesome though. I personally hate As I Lay Dying, but they opened with the song "94 Hours" which rocked the place. Definitely worth the 40 bucks for tickets though.

Not a fan of God Forbid. I honestly dont know much about Municipal Waste, any suggestions? But yeah Alexi is amazing to watch do his thing live and the keyboards dont come through AS much live if you stay towards the front of the stage. And Lamb of God in f*cking Philadelphia...thats all i gotta say. someone will die. They had to add this 2nd show in Philly because the first one sold out in a matter of hours. Cant f*cking wait.

Just got back from the Chicago show. f***ING SICK.
Municipal Waste, Lamb and Children f***ed it up. I heard about 3 songs into lamb's set the medics on site were dealing with 4 unconscious kids.

But yea, Alexi still f***ing rocked out... it obviously wasnt as good as he usually is and was having trouble singing and running about like he does, but it was incredible seeing him play anyway.

btw I HATE HATE HATE AILD. They were the only band on the set that I was bored during. AND they came on right before Lamb. They're frighteningly popular though...

Hmmmm Well I'm both a fan of Megadeth and Children of Bodom. And I think they are both great guitarists but you certainly can't compare. Yes they both fall under the Metal category, but they are different metals.

Megadeth is considered thrash metal, speed metal, and heavy metal where as Children of Bodom is considered melodic death metal and power metal.

And certainly both guys have major talent.

Seriously? I saw Skeletonwitch open for The Red Chord and JFAC and they smoked them both in all musical facets. Where a band plays during a show is not necassarily an indication of how good they are relative to the other bands.

As for the Laiho v. Mustaine debate, i think they've both been better :P

Well, I have to say, to some degree, it's fairly absurd to compare Laiho and Mustaine. They try doing completely different things in their music. I'm sure Laiho could play Symphony and I'm just as sure Mustaine could play Triple Corpse Hammerblow. Could either write those songs? No, because writing is a totally different experience from playing another person's song. One you're conveying yourself any way you see fit, the other you're portraying another person through your playing.

As far as classifying Bodom, power-death is the best fit in my opinion.

No I just have it in me to stick up for what I believe and use facts to support my opinions.

I wasn't talking to you Bodom (fyi). I'm talking about technicality in their guitar work. Not how it sounds. Alexi actually plays(ed) a unique arrangement of scales and modes, but Mustaine just shreds pentatonic over and over until it gets old, or he gets a new guitarist to switch it up. Picking every note doesn't make you awesome.

Oh yeah, I think we can all safely agree that Bloodrunk isn't worth anyones time. When I saw them live, it wasn't even worth Bodoms time.

chuck is one of those guitarists that should only be prepared to Jimmy Page and Hendrix. He's in another league as far as both "shredding" and song construction and just general riffage goes.

Now,I'm not the biggest Bodom fan by any means, nothing really seems to catch my attention when I try and listen to them. BUT, from the bits I've heard, i want to say "industrial thrash with elements of death and power metal". i heard that being used to describe them once, and it seemed to fit from where my ears sit. Sort of like Strapping young lad, but with less of a random factor thrown in lol.

then again, like I said, dont listen to them, not familiar with their material, so I could be horribly mangling a description of their sound. :P

Metal-archives lists CoB as ''melodic death/power metal.'' Just to clear that one up. Also, ''Hatebreeder'' is my personal favorite of theirs, but ''Trashed, Lost & Strung Out EP'' was great but too short.

I agree with what SHREDDER13 says they are amazing live. I was gutted not to get a full show in London in February but some fvcker got beer over the mixing console and they couldn't play anymore!

I think there's a lot of opinions on what their genre should be, my personal favourite being melodic death metal but I'm sure they fit into loads.

On the Blooddrunk debate, I think there are a couple of good tracks on there. Two really stick out from the album (Blooddrunk and Banned From Heaven) both of them are incredible live in my own opinion but I still think its an album worth listening to.

Uhm... have you ever even heard of Wintersun? You should check them out atleast. Better in all aspects imo. Jari Mäenpää is def. the better guitarist between Laiho.

I do get sick of hearing Laiho is a god. He damn sure is a great guitarist but he isnt god. His best work is on the first 2 albums and his style was much closer to a Malsteem rip off then, atleast he has developed somewhat of a more original style since Follow The Reaper but the albums have progressively become more boring then the last since then.

"I will say that I am glad that Alexi is not canceling the tour due to a broken arm.
Unlike Jamie Josta at least he does have balls."

Apparently very fragile if he has done it to a point where they issue the news as "again" but atleast he's got them.

I guess I can see what you guys are saying about Sweeping but it doesnt, yet atleast, bother me in the slightest. Jeff Loomis is a great guitarist as well, among the elite imo but sadly Nevermore, like Bodom and Megadeth, have almost all but faded into the list of bands I use to love and listen to regularly but hardly even pick up anymore. Although, unlike Bodom or Megadeth, Nevermore is beginning to comeback to me as I have begun to pick up Dead Heart, In A Dead World alot more regularly then I have in the past year or so. I guess I owe this to being a fan of prog music, while Nevermore isnt a prog band they do have some tendencies towards it.

Well, what I was trying to say about Alexi is that he's definitely not just an OK or average guitarist. But he's no god either, I agree. As to what annoys me about CoB is Alexi's crap vocals (that same fake scream over and over again) and the crap lyrics. There's also something the keyboard stuff that sounds totally out of place. To me the keyboards on "Are you dead yet" sounded like they had the keyboardist from Europe (yes... the Final countdown band) doing a session with CoB (which is a collaboration Im not interested in..)

Sadly, and I weep to say this, I have yet to see Slayer. The one time they hit near me, I was completely broke, and none of my friends who went had enough money to help me out. I'm seeing them this mayhem festival coming up.

Deicide came to the culture room ONCE, and I didnt know about it until 2 days afte rhte concert had passed.

Converge has never hit Florida if my memory serves me right, not to mention I've only been listening to them for about a year now. though I plan to. Them and Dillinger are on the "Before I Die" list.

You also have to put into perspective that I'm only 19, and have only been a serious metalhead for about 2 or 3 of those years (I dont count my slipknot and Korn years as "Metal", I count it as "stepping-stone years") So the amount of bands that I want to see, that I have seen, is extremely limited.

I'm just saying, Goatwhore and Lamb of God are the only bands I've seen that have managed to stir the crowd up to the point that the entire floor, all the wayback into the bar, and then up to the door, becomes a mosh pit. When a band has the stage presence capable of breaking down the fight-or-flight reflex of every person in the club who shunned that particular bit of metal chaos, and makes that chaos the standard, that's when they impress me. Metalheads are a difficult and stubborn lot, and the band that can so easily tear down their conventions is a good one in my book.

The best concert I've been to, had to have been The absence, Skeletonwitch, Goatwhore, and Amon Amarth headlining. Not a single one of those bands are anywhere near my favorites, but the concert itself was just that great. I mentioned the Lamb of God with Machine Head and Gojira gig as one of my favorites because it was not only awesome all by itself because of the solid line-up, but it was also my first real metal concert, opening me up to everything I listen to today. third best had to be The Ozzfest freefest.

I'm stuck with my 30 gigs of music for now til I upgrade lol

It boggles my mind that once upon a time, james hetfield was cool enough to punch the man who would come to be known as megadave. then he wrote Invisible Kid. God, what happened?

Now Playing: Eminem- stay wide awake

FAN: Jsin has it all. Hit him up for some. He'll be back in town in a couple of months. By then you will have upgraded your computer and made your last payment on that bada$$ monster truck you've been saving up for. What's that truck called again?

^I call it the p***y-crucifier. The whole family helped to come up with the name. I wanted to just call it Jesusf***ing c***n*****, but they told me I had to make it PG, so we setled on a compromise. :P

Will do BG. just let me know when that satanic fag-bag gets back in that particular sh**hole of the world,and I'll message him from my particular sh**hole of the world.

ToG: I've heard some of hteir old stuff, and it's funny, because dimm-ees vocals have always been just barely understandable, and when Iheard that stuff, I had no idea what the f*** they were saying. then I realized they were speaking gobbledegook, and it all made sense. lol

FAN: I'll let you know when the Blek Meatle fag hag returns, but you have to send pictures of that monster truck buddy. I still don't understand how the paint scheme is going to work on it. It's probably easier to just send the pictures than try to explain it to me again.

I'm not surprised another musician fell off his/her top bunk and broke some bones. It seems to happen a lot.

Poor, Alexi. A broken arm is no fun. I hope those painkillers he's taking are extra strong, I can't imagine the pain of playing guitar without a sling. Ouch!

Dedication will defeat the pain.
