Children of Bodom is a melodic death metal band from Espoo, Finland. Formed in 1993, the band consists of five members: Alexi Laiho (vocals, guitar), Roope Latvala (guitar), Janne Wirman (keyboards), Henkka Seppälä (bass) and Jaska Raatikainen (drums).

Children of Bodom quickly gained popularity thanks to their unique musical style, which combines fast, aggressive guitar riffs with catchy melodies and virtuoso solos. Their songs are often characterized by dark, introspective lyrics, tackling themes such as death, violence and loneliness.

The band's debut album, "Something Wild", was released in 1997 to critical acclaim. It established Children of Bodom as one of the most promising bands on the metal scene. They went on to release several successful albums, including "Hatebreeder" in 1999, "Follow the Reaper" in 2000 and "Hate Crew Deathroll" in 2003.

Over the years, Children of Bodom have toured the world and built up a devoted fan base. Their live performances were energetic and intense, captivating audiences with their stage presence and musical virtuosity.

Sadly, in December 2019, the band announced its split after nearly three decades of existence. Alexi Laiho, the band's charismatic leader, passed away on December 29, 2020 at the age of 41, leaving behind an impressive musical legacy.
