31 days, 31 gifts – Alexi Laiho Edition!

Today you’ll be feasting your eyes, and ears on…Alexi Laiho! Mr Laiho hails from Finland (where most of the good music lives), he’s the lead guitarist & vocalist in Children of Bodom, and guitarist for Sinergy (although they have disbanded), as well as Kylähullut.

I absolutely adore this man, he’s obviously extremely good looking – but he’s also one of the most talented guitarists around today. I’m fortunate enough to have seen CoB live twice, both times they were truly amazing. They’re just a really awesome band. They’ve done a few cover songs, one of which by a rather famous pop “Princess” (I prefer the term idjit, but whatever), and them doing a metal version of her song…yea, tis pretty epic. xD

Children of Bodom – Rebel Yell [Billy Idol cover]. I love this song, it’s been covered by a fair few artists (HIM included), and this is one of the better covers of it…

This is ‘We’re Not Gonna Fall’, performed live. This is one of my favourite CoB songs, so enjoy =)

And just because I think he’s gorgeous…

  1. Definitely a band who divide opinion, probably due to the nature of the vocal style. But for good, power/heavy/thrash metal you need look no further.

    Any band who manages to sell more records than Maiden, Robbie Williams, U2, Elvis and the almighty Phil Collins in Finland shouldn’t be written off 🙂

  2. he is the hero of guitar as well as songs……………wowowo i jst love his songs and i hope for his new album …….
