Children of Bodom @ The Commodore Ballroom – 8th November 2017

Finnish metal band Children of Bodom rolled through the Commodore for their 20th anniversary tour with a setlist made only from their first 4 albums. The crowd chanted for them before even hitting the stage, with many old and new fans waiting for the metal mayhem to begin. They opened with their very first song ever released, ‘Deadnight Warrior’, with frontman Alexi Laiho shredding the thrashy opening riff before turning it into a back-and-forth duo with keyboardist Janne Wirman.

Their newest rhythm guitarist, Daniel Freyberg (Naildown, ex-Norther) fit the veteran members perfectly. Children of Bodom maintained their stamina through a ferocious set of guitar solos, drum fills and keyboard solos. Here is to another 20 years!
