    Never met him. Never got a chance to see him/them perform them live (CoB mainly), but he had a huge positive influence on me since my teenage years.. It almost feels like loosing a close friend..

    Giving class after he leave this planet, and iam amazed. Allways follwed his carreer, but this is his style but with an incredible set of new components, he ended with an amazing song best of him that i've heard, what a legend.

  • Matt90L

    this is iconic and extremely sad at the same time.. They sound so damn powerful even though he is visibly weak, this would have been godlike music for years to come. Lyrics though, seems to me kinda that he was ready for it any moment :'( rip Alexi, i sincerely hope there is afterlife cause you deserved one for sure...

  • TheCow467

    This is the most metal music video ever. It was made by a dying man.

  • JDBarraza

    When I saw Bodom in concert 3 times in one weekend in 2019, I was front row and experiencing a happiness I hadn't felt in a long time. I cry every time I think about how I'll never get to experience that again. It was truly some of the happiest times I've ever had in my life.

    Has anyone started a conversation yet about, whom did Alexi mean by the "my three furies"? Could it be seen as a metaphore to people in his life, or just a metaphore to some feelings that got him going on? 🤔 It really guts me knowing he died alone, with probable discomfort and weakness. May he rest in peace. Thinking about him almost everyday, as I did at the time when he lived his guitar hero life.

    Man what the hell? Where has this been the last 15 years? If Alexi were still alive I'd invite him to come live with me and my mom (we have lots of junk food and no filter on the internet)

  • lowend365

    So sad! Alexi looks terrible in this. Definitely not the way I'd like to remember him. The song is a banger, tho. Crying shame more wasn't done with this band before he passed.

  • Shred

    Killer guitar tones....RIP Alexi

  • ekyxor

    2:42 sounds like Alexi took this part from All Twisted and twisted it around a bit, and the guitar goes on a wild twister around his neck on this part at 2:50, here is the part on All Twisted

    Like Bowie, he let his music do the talking until the very end no matter how unwell. Both passed away within weeks of their latest clips without having all of us worry about them and just let us enjoy their music instead. RIP Alexi.

    It makes me sad knowing that he has passed away, he was only three years older than me. I started listening to his music since "Something Wild" and when I was about 17-18 years old I really got hooked on Children Of Bodom. Great music, great guys. RIP Alexi

  • TheIzaam

    Superb. Oh, man, we will fucking miss all the LP's he could release.

  • zijuiy wttuy

    This is Children Of Bodom on steroids, this was the path COB had to go. What a swansong, Alexi, and this is just a single, not the full album. RIP Alexi Laiho.

    You could see it in his face a bunch of times throughout the video... man's in absolute discomfort and was very very frail. Of course, the metal monster he was, he still stood up and put on one last show for us, and one we could watch over and over. Rest easy big guy, the pain's gone now. We'll keep fighting like you told us to.

    i stopped watching video in half he looks really tired in this video :(, but kept listening, much better than latest CoB albums i have strange feel that he planned all this things pretty well Cob end Bodom After Midnight(the name also have some call) video just before death He felt it
