Children Of Bodom @ Tuska Open Air 2016 | FESTIVALPHOTO

Children Of Bodom @ Tuska Open Air 2016

Children Of Bodom had been woving to make their festival closing headline set at Tuska Open Air 2016 something a little special, and not only by it being the band’s new guitarist Daniel Freyberg’s first show on home grounds. And boy did they deliver.

Firstly, the song Trashed, Lost & Strungout is a recent resurrection from the band’s back catalogue to their setlist, not being played live at all in the last decade. To spice some of the older classics up, midway through the set Netta Skog (Ensiferum, previously Turisas) would jump in and play her accordion on Lake Bodom.

To close the festival with, the band played three of their popular covers, two which had never been performed live before.

Lookin’ Out My Backdoor (CCR) is one of the more popular tracks that the band has Bodomized, and a funny one to see a circle pit going wild on.

With Somebody Put Something In My Drink (Ramones) the band mixed things up a little, with the keyboard player Janne Warman taking on the bass duties, and the band’s bass player Henkka Blacksmith playing guitar (including a solid solo) while Alexi Laiho would focus solely on his vocals. Simultaneously, the quintet was backed up by a raging gang choir of friends who took the party to the stage center. If not enough, for Ghostriders In The Sky (Stan Jones) ten fans from front row were lifted on the stage to further fortify the choir. The band would also switch back to their own instruments, as they were joined by the band’s friend David Sanchez from Havok on the third guitar.

A big Bodom-style party left no one cold as the festival closer- something not easy to achieve for a band that has been playing shows in town for the last 20 years.
