CHILDREN OF BODOM have defied all odds, breaking out of the so called â€œEuro-Metalâ€ scene to become one of the biggest names in metal across the globe. 2008â€™s â€œBlooddrunkâ€ album saw the band reach new heights, truly being embraced by the metal community, gracing magazine covers worldwide, including that of BLOODSTOCK media partner METAL HAMMER, and a sold-out tour of the UK with BOA 2010 partners CANNIBAL CORPSE. Famed for frontman ALEXI LAIHOâ€™s impossibly fast shredding/soloing, as well as his guitar vs keyboard duels with keysman JANNE WARMEN, COBâ€™s place as headliners of BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR - at their only UK show of 2010 - is testament to how far theyâ€™ve come, and is not to be missed. Alexi commented:
"I'm really glad we're playing Bloodstock next year â€“ it's the only UK show for us in 2010, and the crowd over there has been awesome for us lately!"
LOOK OUT FOR A SPECIAL HEADLINER ANNOUNCEMENT ON FEB 1ST 2010!!!
The BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR METAL FESTIVAL 2010 will take place at Catton Hall, Derbyshire from 13th â€“ 15th August.
