Children Of Bodom
Children of Bodom have gone from being “this amazing band from Finland” to a household name in the global metal music scene. And that, of course, was obvious given the intensity, sheer quality of their material and the flawless execution.
To celebrate the 15 years of band`s career Children of Bodom is releasing CD+DVD package that has songs from every album they have released through out the years.
Also included are 2 new cover songs;”Jessie`s Girl” was a hit song from Rick Springfield from year 1982 and “I´m shipping Up To Boston” is a track by Dropkick Murphys.
15 Years of Wasted Youth’ is the sound of Children Of Bodom working hard, partying hard, being relentless and stubborn," says the band's superstar guitarist / vocalist Alexi Laiho. “We went through many brick walls to get to where we are, and after seven studio albums, two live albums, non-stop touring, bleeding and breaking a lot of bones, I think we are justified in putting this album out. Let the music speak for itself. You have been warned."
On the DVD you can find short documentary that has been shot in the past years during the band tours that have taken them around the world and back,few times.
"Shovel Knockout” video starts when the live show ends and it shows what happens between the gigs while on touring.

Year 2012 started for COB with gig at 70 000 Tons of Metal and US tour.Spring/summer is spend with gigs around Europe and after that band is having a little break before starting to write new material. After 15 hectic years of constant touring and releasing albums they might deserve that.
