Children of Bodom (or COB) continues to tour the globe in support of its critically acclaimed new album Relentless Reckless Forever which landed at #41 on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week of release. Fronted by vocalist and international guitar hero Alexi "Wildchild" Laiho, the band high-energy hooks and electric energy forge stadium-sized heavy metal anthems that seethe with marvelous musicianship. 15 years into its career, COB continues to grow its ever-expanding fan base via supercharged live shows that have also made fans of some of hard rock's biggest names. Longtime metal vocalist and reality TV star Sebastian Bach jumped on stage and expressed his love for the band at a Children of Bodom show in Los Angeles this past summer while Laiho was invited to join Deftones on stage in COB's hometown of Helsinki for a joint performance of the band's hit "Root."
