The discography of Children of Bodom , a five-piece melodic death metal band from Espoo , Finland.
Throughout their career, the band has been known to incorporate many different musical styles, leading critics and fans to label them as everything from melodic death metal  and black metal     to thrash metal ,   progressive metal   and even power metal. Children of Bodom have released nine studio albums , two live albums , one compilation album , seven singles , two EP 's and two split singles.
Moreover, in the period — they released three demos under their old moniker, " IneartheD ". This list includes the material released as IneartheD. Children of Bodom's first release under their new name was the split single Children of Bodom , released in January Their debut album Something Wild followed later the same year.
In they released their third studio album, Follow the Reaper , which had the very successful single Hate Me! Samuli was the main composer of the band's lyrics for the two years that he took part in Inearthed, but his family moved to the United States in , making it impossible for him to remain in the band. His last contributions to Inearthed were the lyrics of the songs from their second demo, Ubiquitous Absence of Remission which was the first time they worked with producer Anssi Kippo at Astia-studios Lappeenranta, Finland.
In this demo, keyboards were incorporated into the band's songs for the first time. In order to achieve this, both Laiho and Raatikainen played the keyboards separately and subsequently mixed the recorded track with the other instruments.
Laiho, who had previously only composed the melodies of the songs, assumed the role of the band's lyricist. At the time, Raatikainen played French horn in a local big band, and during a rehearsal, he met Alexander Kuoppala , a trumpet player and also a proficient guitarist. Shortly after the recording of their second demo, Kuoppala was invited to join Inearthed as a rhythm guitarist. Also, the band recruited a musician to specialize on keyboards, whose name was Jani Pirisjoki. Both joined Inearthed in early With this new line-up, Inearthed proceeded to record their third demo, entitled Shining.
This demo did not impress record labels any more than the previous ones had, and none took interest in the band. As a last resort, the band decided to record an independent, self-funded album. Laiho wanted to make use of the keyboards more effectively, but Pirisjoki was not attending rehearsals. Thus, he was fired and replaced by a friend of Raatikainen's, a jazz pianist named Janne "Warman" Wirman.
Wirman was the component which was previously missing from Inearthed. His presence allowed the band to assume the style which would later characterize Children of Bodom.
With Wirman, the band successfully recorded their first album in Their debut, Something Wild , was supposed to be released by a small Belgian label, Shiver Records, but second vocalist Sami Tenetz from Thy Serpent acquired a copy of their album through the hands of Kuoppala.
They both worked for the same company at the time. Shortly after Inearthed signed this contract, Spinefarm Records ' boss became interested in signing them for a country-wide release. The band was required to create a new name to sign up to Spinefarm Records. The contract with Shiver records had already been signed under the name of Inearthed. The answer to that problem came as the members looked for good names in their local phone book. When they stumbled upon Lake Bodom , they realized that it was a name with impact and one which had an interesting story behind it.
A long list of possible names involving the word Bodom was then made, and they settled with Children of Bodom. The band's name is derived from the Lake Bodom murders. In an attempt to promote their band, they opened a show for Dimmu Borgir in Their success was such that a representative from the Nuclear Blast label approached them with a contract for a European release, a deal which started on the subsequent year. In early , for promotional purposes, the band recorded a music video of the song "Deadnight Warrior".
It made use of simple scenery, which consisted essentially of an outdoors location after a snowstorm. In Your Face 6. Next In Line 7. Bastards Of Bodom 8. Trashed, Lost, Strung Out 9. We're Not Gonna Fall. Touted by the band members as the heaviest thing they've ever done, the album is in fact heavier than past Bodom efforts.
The side effect of this may be that die hard fans who are more into the melodic aspects of the music could be let down. Laiho Kimberly Goss. Retrieved TrueMetal in Italian.
