Children of Bodom frontman Suffering From ‘Serious Infection’

Children of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho was rushed to a hospital in Oslo, Norway, the night of July 3, suffering from what was reported as “extreme stomach pain.” Unfortunately, Laiho remains in the hospital and has now been diagnosed with a “serious infection.”
Bodom hate to disappoint their fans, but after already canceling gigs in both Norway and Sweden due to Laiho’s condition, the band have been forced to cancel their set at Ruisrock in Turku, Finland.
Children of Bodom went to their Facebook page to break the bad news to their fans with an official statement that reads as follows:
"This is not an easy letter for us to write. Alexi is suffering from a serious infection. He is still in hospital in Oslo under supervision of the doctors and we don’t know yet when they will release him.
We have no choice other than canceling Ruisrock in Turku on Saturday as well. This is a very bitter pill for us to swallow. We had decided to do only two festivals in our homeland this summer to make it real special, and now this.
We hope that we will be able to make up for this very soon. To all our fans who had been looking forward to rock with us at Ruisrock this weekend, take our apologies and enjoy the festival. In our spirits, we will be there, too."
Bodom are still set to play their Ilosaarirock set on July 15, as no announcement of the gig’s cancellation had been made. Get better soon Alexi!

Rock in Rio 2012 - Review

Hey Rockers!

 As promised, here is my review of the 1st day of Rock in Rio Lisboa.

           The first band was Sepultura with Tambours du Bronx. The concert started with an instrumental intro by Tambours du Bronx. Then Sepultura joined them on stage to play all together a classic: Refuse/Resist. What an incredible sound! They played some of their masterpieces, ending with Roots Bloody Roots (Hell Yeah!). It was a quite fast concert as expected but a very good experience. It’s really great to hear some Sepultura’s classics with such percussion.

           By that time, I had to make a tough decision: Kreator on the Sunset or Mastodon on the Main?

           I chose Kreator, as I had never seen them before. And I don’t regret this choice!

           Their concert was a mixture between old shit and some new songs from the album Phantom Antichrist. Petrozza is a hell of frontman! He kept asking for circle pits all the time and the crowd’s answer was really great.  Circle pits were quite small but hell, there was a fantastic atmosphere. Near the end, Andreas Kisser, who had just played with Sepultura in the Main Stage, joined them. It got even better. He is a great guitarist and together they a made pure old school thrash metal moment! After that, it was time to “raise the flag of hate!!!”. It sounds way more awesome live than in studio! The crowd went completely crazy! They made a slightly different version, with some more riffs and solos in the middle of the song. Great ending. Nevertheless it became even greater when they revealed a concert with Morbid Angel and Nile, here in Portugal on November! Hell yeah!

           Evanescence’s concert was the right time to eat something and to relax for Metallica’s show.

           Then it was time do rock again. As The ecstasy of gold began, the crowd went nuts. They started with old stuff, Hit the lights. What a f***ing start! Hetfield is very communicative, especially with the Portuguese crowd. Metallica’s concerts are pretty much the same, apart from the setlist, which was really great that evening. They played the whole black album, one of their best albums. If I’m not mistaken, the only song they played post black album was Fuel, which is, for me, their best song after black album. So, as you can see the setlist was pretty awesome, with every classics: Master of Puppets, Seek and Destroy, One etc… Of course, there was also some pyro moments and some fireworks. They had a great time with us and so do I with them. They didn’t bring anything new but Metallica is Metallica and I never get tired to see them live on stage. Waiting for the next time!

            And that’s how the metal day was.

Keep rockin’!
