Author Flavia Andrade - 15.12.2022

The concert, which happened on December 15, 2019 at the Black Box in Helsinki Ice Hall, will be released next year as a live album.

Drummer Jaska Raatikainen, bassist Henri “Henkka T. Blacksmith” Seppälä and keyboardist Janne Wirman released a statement on the band’s social media:

“Exactly three years ago 15th December 2019 Children Of Bodom played their last show at the Helsinki Ice Hall. To keep this precious last moment alive and also available to everyone who couldn’t make it to see the show, Alexi’s estate, Daniel, Henkka, Janne and Jaska will release the show next year as a live album.

To make it more special we’d love to have photos from YOU to be included in the album booklet. What we’re looking for is any Bodom related memories, from any era. We would like the Hate Crew to be part of the album, as the Hate Crew was always the essential part of the phenomenon called Children Of Bodom. That’s why we are asking you to be part of this!

If you feel like taking part in this project please submit your photo via email to by 31st December 2022.

Looking forward to see you what you guys have in your archives and stay tuned for more news.
