Children Of Bodom is a Finnish band from the city of Espoo, near Helsinki. The name of the band comes from one of the mostfamous Finnish murder cases of all time, the murdering of three teenagers one night at Lake Bodom back in the 60s.Early Children Of Bodom albums are inspired by classical music and death metal ('Red Light In My Eyes - Part I' starts with aline from J.S. Bach’s 'Invention No.13 in A Minor', and 'Red Light In My Eyes - Part II' includes selections from Mozart’s '25thSymphony'), and later albums are more inspired by a commercial thrash and hair metal, losing some of its earlier melodic style.A precise definition for their musical genre is discussed by fans and the specialized press alike, often discounting theinfluences of the band and the composition of songs. The lyrics of their songs are written in the English language and areoften of a simplistic nature, dealing with the subjects of death and personal struggles.

They are now also hitting the mainstream part of metal, their name and stylebeing more known now. COB continues to inspire many musicians alike and more join the COBHC everyday.The band members included Alexi Laiho (1979 - 2020, R.i.p.)
