One of Finland’s best-selling artists of all time, Children of Bodom brought life to death metal. As of 2021, the band have sold over 250,000 records in their native country alone and over two million worldwide.
Formed in Espoo, Finland, Children of Bodom released ten studio albums throughout their 26-year career.
The band took their name from a lake in Finland, and it’s safe to say they made more than a splash. The band did what other foreign death rockers couldn’t – landing chart positions across the world, including on the United States’ Billboard 200.
