Subscribe to Loudwire on

Shortly before the release of Children of Bodom‘s newest album, ‘Halo of Blood,’ frontman Alexi Laiho stopped by the Loudwire studio for an exclusive interview. The monumental shredder went in-depth about the new record, which boasts some of Bodom’s strongest songwriting in the last decade.

During our interview, Laiho compares ‘Halo of Blood’ to past Bodom records, describes the band’s shift from a neoclassical focus into a more contemporary direction, ponders fan expectations and reveals how Laiho himself was the inspiration for the self-deprecating monster track ‘Waste of Skin.’

Check out our exclusive video interview with Children of Bodom’s Alexi Laiho above.
