Finnish extreme metal act Children of Bodom is celebrating its 25th anniversary together in a typical way – by touring. Alexi Laiho (vocals/lead guitar), Janne Wirman (keyboards), Henkka Seppala (bass), Jaska Raatikainen (drums), and Daniel Freyberg (guitar) are crisscrossing the globe playing shows to their dedicated fans.
Over the course of their time together the band has released two live albums, nine studio albums and two EPs. Meaning they have been busy. That hard work has been rewarded at they are one of the best selling Finnish act of all time having sold over 250,000 albums. Over time their sound has undergone some variations. At times they were labelled a melodic death metal band while others thrash metal. There is no doubt that their sound has been influenced by the likes of Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Metallica, and Iron Maiden.
