CHILDREN OF BODOM Guitarists Appear At SWEDISH METAL EXPO: Report Available

CHILDREN OF BODOM fan site Scythes Of Bodom has posted the following report on COB guitarists Alexi Laiho and Roope Latvala's appearance at the Sweden Rock Expo last weekend:

"Alexi and Roope hald a very interesting 45-minute guitar clinic at the Swedish Metal Expo in Stockholm, Sweden last Friday [September 1]. The clinic consisted of three instrumental songs (including tunes from Young Guitar's 'Passage to the Reaper' DVD) featuring the axemen jamming on backing tracks that were played from Roope's iPod. Also a lot of improvised stuff, the solo from 'Beach Bodom Terror', even some STONE material and the first minute of 'Lake Bodom', among others, were demonstrated. The fans also go to ask them questions. They didn't want to reveal anything about the plans for the upcoming album except that the release is planned for fall 2007. Alexi also shared a funny story of how he once puked on stage on Roope's shoe when his mouth got full of hair as a result of furious headbanging."

As previously reported, the track "Living Dead Beat" from from the companion double live CD to CHILDREN OF BODOM's upcoming DVD, "Chaos Ridden Years – Stockholm Knockout Live", has been posted online at the band's official MySpace page.

Due on October 10, "Chaos Ridden Years – Stockholm Knockout Live" is estimated to contain over three hours of non-stop COB action, including a live concert, videos, and a rare documentary on the band from past to present.

Directed by Patric Ullaeus of the Revolver Film Company, the DVD mainly focuses on the February 5, 2006 live concert in Stockholm, Sweden, featuring over 90 minutes of live excitement. Finalizing the material on this super-packed DVD will be two interviews/documentary-type films about the band's past, present and future directed by Yka Jarvinen (Indie Films OY), a "making of the DVD," and photo gallery.
