A reluctant interview with Janne Wirman of Children of Bodom

November 6th, 2013

What’s worse than doing an interview you don’t want to do? Interviewing someone who clearly doesn’t want to be interviewed. So when Karma Bertelesen had to settle for Children of Bodom keyboardist, Janne Wirman rather than Alexi Laiho, the result was as stilted as you’d imagine.

A couple of weeks ago I jumped at the chance to interview the most influential melodic death metal band in my universe. I’ve loved Children of Bodom since I discovered them in early 2007 and have fantasised about dry humping the leg of shredding god, Alexi Laiho many a time. Unfortunately, my dreams did not come true. Maybe some other time.

Those Finnish widdlers of all things guitar, Children of Bodom, have a new studio album coming out next month. It’s their eighth LP. Eighth! It’s called Halo Of Blood, and they’re pretty damn pleased with it. So much so that they sent us a video of frontman/guitarist Alexi Laiho and bassist/backing vocalist Henkka Seppälä telling us what their favourite individual tracks from the album are.

Lady Gaga goes death metal. As does Coldplay, Michael Buble and Justin ruddy Bieber…

December 17th, 2011

Pop music is excellent. That’s why you get bands like Children of Bodom covering Britney Spears.

Pop music isn’t as good as metal, of course, so Mark-Hall Patch has used existing metal bands’ logos to give eleven pop artists death metal logos.

DEATH METAL IST KRIEG!!!

Win a Spinefarm Records goody bag!

We just got back from Finland where the annual Spinefeast At Sea was taking place. You won’t believe how bad our hangovers are. Still. (Until you see them on the three-part video we’ve made, of course).

Most importantly, we nicked a whole load of swag from the Spinefarm Records HQ while we were in snowy Finland. We’ve stuck a bunch of CDs, a heavy metal (plastic) frisbee, a Rotten Sound t-shirt and some signed posters in a goody bag and YOU could win it. That frisbee will be fun in a few months.

2008 into 2009: Anterior

December 12th, 2008

Welsh metallers, Anterior might be named after a cruciate ligament but that doesn’t matter to us. Hairy frontman, Luke Davies talks about burning vans, fisting whole insurance companies and Tom Jones singing Slipknot covers…

What was your highlight of 2008?
There was quite a few highlights but if I was tied down to my favourite it was probably playing with Children of Bodom on their small UK tour – huge venues with huge great crowds. It was a great few days.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
We had a pretty savage tour van fire this summer, which was quite bad. The van was completely torched, and me and Steve (guitarist) were trapped in the back whilst the front was a pure raging inferno! [Read more →]
