Alexi Laiho

Finnish five-piece, Children of Bodom (COB), burst onto the worldwide metal scene with their aptly named 1997 debut album, 'Something Wild'. Since then, thanks to their unique form of brutal yet melodic heaviness, COB have proven to be Scandinavia`s most successful metal export to date. In 2015 the band released its 9th studio album, 'I Worship Chaos', to overwhelming critical acclaim. Armed with a Marshall JVM410H head, COB frontman, Alexi Laiho, continues to wow audiences with his jaw-dropping charisma plus his undeniable vocal and guitar playing prowess. It`s hardly surprising that the readership of Guitar World voted him Best Metal Guitarist a few years back.
