"Like ourselves, Alexi was beyond stoked about these songs and anxious to get these out so we are happy that we can fulfil his wish. Needless to say that we are honoured and proud to be a part of his very last creative work and unleash it the way he wanted it to. It’s time to let the beast out of the cage one more time as a celebration of Alexi’s music,

legacy and the man himself." - BODOM AFTER MIDNIGHT -

In 2020 a great news came out after Alexi Laiho, announced he formed a new band, the Bodom After Midnight. The successor to the legendary metal band Children of Bodom. Their plans were, including an EP to be release in the spring and following by a full set album later in the year.

The EP, "Paint The Sky With Blood", out on April 23 via Napalm Records, was recorded in Finland back in 2020. Sadly, after a big exciting new chapter, this new journey ended too soon.

A storm of raging guitars and a thunder drum melts with Laiho's power voice. The dedicated track is strikingly reminiscent of early CHILDREN OF BODOM elements, while also adding exciting modern influences into the fold. Following stunner “Payback’s A Bitch” and its massive riffing are on a quest for retribution, delivering a hard-hitting, second to none offense. The interplay of Alexi Laiho, guitarist Daniel Freyberg, drummer Waltteri Väyrynen (Paradise Lost), bassist Mitja Toivonen (ex-Santa Cruz) and live keyboardist Vili Itäpelto is not only a remarkable testament to the band's extraordinary musical ability, but also showcases their skill in deftly incorporating a variety of genre influences. The cover track “Where Dead Angels Lie” is an originally performed by Swedish extreme metal formation Dissection, the track as a timeless classic with a modern edge. Eerie riffs and vocals alternating between menacing murmurs and characteristic guttural, distorted vocals stay faithful to the original while branding this version with an undeniable BODOM AFTER MIDNIGHT punch.
