Children of Bodom


Children of Bodom Homepage

Country of origin: flag

The group started out in 1993 and released all of their demos as Inearthed. The band faked a split-up and changed their name to Children of Bodom just before the release of "Something Wild" to escape from a record deal with a smaller label (perceived by the band as a "rip-off") in order to sign for Spinefarm Records. Children of Bodom acquired their name from a legendary murder that took place in Finland at Lake Bodom. When four teens went camping at Lake Bodom in 1960, three of them were stabbed to death in the middle of the night, and the man who survived, Nils Gustafsson, went insane and was committed to an asylum. He said he saw the Grim Reaper. In 2004 the Finnish Police arrested Nils Gustafsson, who was assumed to be the killer. However, there wasn't enough proof against him, so he was acquitted, and the case remains still unsolved. The Grim Reaper is Children of Bodom's mascot and has appeared on all of their album covers to date.

The music discographies on this site are works in progress. If you notice that a particular Children of Bodom CD release or compilation is missing from the list above, please submit that CD using the CD submission page. The ultimate goal is to make the discographies here at Brutal Metal as complete as possible. Even if it is an obscure greatest-hits or live compilation CD, we want to add it to the site. Please only submit official CD releases; no bootlegs or cassette-only or LP-only releases.

EPs and CD-singles from Children of Bodom are also welcome to be added, as long as they are at least 4 songs in length.

Links to CD cover art can be posted over in the Brutal Metal forum/message board.
