Children of Bodom's guitar player Alexi Laiho recently passed away. Getting a bit more acquainted with their insane brand of technical death metal. I don't know much about their lyrical output, but I bet they were a great band to see live.
Over the last twenty years, Finland’s CHILDREN OF BODOM have incorporated many different musical styles into their celebrated sound, leading critics and fans to label them as melodic death metal, thrash metal, symphonic black metal, and neoclassical metal. Their enthralling mix of melodic hooks and instrumental acrobatics have solidified the band as one of the leading voices of music’s new generation.
