I remember when I didn't know much about metal, I even referred to the genre as "heavy rock". Well, searching the internet for heavy rock bands (what an idiot) I came across a yahoo recommendation for Children of Bodom. They were my entry into the most extreme metal; my personality received a permanent influence since then. Thanks Alexi, your voice was the first intense scream I heard in my life and back then I was immediately fascinated. You are the reason why I have a taste for gutturals like Arch Enemy’s or Insomnium’s today when before know you I did not tolerate that style.

One of Finland's biggest and greatest guitar heroes. So many great albums I've heard hundreds of times. So many finnish metal bands who Bodom helped get noticed in the global scene. Thank you Alexi "WildChild" Laiho! Enjoy the rest of your days chilling at Lake Bodom! <3

I havent really put a thought in this but this video is really an historic gem, it marked so many lives including mine i remember seeing this video a long time ago, it was my only way to be in the same room listening to alexi, so personal, so raw and down to earth. HE was relatable Because he want perfect but you could see he was giving 110 all the goddamned time and as he said in his dvd, you gotta practice a lot. He didnt achieve for technicality although he was pretty god, he achieved for singularity and originality and he truly marked his name in the history of metal.

This guy was and IS the Bruce Lee of guitar-playing. Dude was so fluid like water on guitar, and when he shredded, he SHREDDED - the ultimate definition of guitar shredding. Never liked COB, but I always respected Alexi Laiho. Such a phenomenal guitar player. My condolences to all the fans and to Finland :(

Damn this hurts. I remember being an 11 year old kid and being completely astounded by Alexi's tone, playing and songwriting. Bodom introduced me to so many musical aspects I had never heard before. I'll always owe a great debt to Alexi for his music. Rip

Been listening to Bodom to this day since 2005, back when I was a kid. Have the first 5 album CD's since childhood. My favorite metal band by far. Their songs are extremely creative, unique and melodic masterpieces. RIP Laiho, you were a uniquely talented songwriter and guitarist. You have given me a shit ton of great memories that I can relive by listening to Bodom's songs, and I'm forever grateful for that.

James Rogers
James Rogers:
I hate the comments on this video. He's clearly a great guitarist. He's playing at the EMG studio and has his own signature guitar and pickup. Even if you think this song is easy you ought to admire the fact it sounds good. Music isn't about how many notes you can play in 3 seconds it's about what triggers emotions. More over, that tone. Jesus. The rhythm tone is crazy.

Luca Bertani:
I've been very lucky, to see him along with COB on tour for two times here in Italy almost 10 years ago and damn, he always delivered.

I remember those moments very distinctly. First one was in 2008 in Milan along with Machine Head and Slipknot, second one always in Milan, 2010, along with Diablo and Cannibal Corpse.

He was a huge part of my secondary school period, today I still have a whole playlist in my phone dedicated to him and COB, they will always have a special place in my heart.

RIP giant.
You will never be forgotten, at least by me. :(

After that couple of years later in 2012 by luck i got free ticket to a festival. Huge halffive for luck CoB was the last live band who closed the festival. luckily i can see my legendary hero then ,it was one of the best night in my life. After that when my classmate and all my friend hear that they waa so jealous to me...Oh man i'm gonna miss you so much dude. I hope you doin well up there with the other legends. RiP hero🖤🙏
