Children of Bodom is a Finnish band from the city of Espoo, near Helsinki. The name of the band comes from one of the most famous Finnish murder cases of all time. (The murdering of three teenagers one night at Lake Bodom back in the 60’s.) Early Children of Bodom albums are inspired by classical music and death metal (Red Light in My Eyes pt. 1 starts with a line from J.S. Bach’s Invention No.13 in A minor and Red Light in My Eyes pt. 2 includes selections from Mozart’s 25th Symphony), and later albums are more inspired by a commercial thrash and hair metal, losing some of its earlier melodic style.
