Finnish heavy metal band from Espoo, formed in 1993 as "[a3007400]" by Alexi Laiho and Jaska Raatikainen. Different sources tend to categorize them stylistically in different ways, but according to the lead singer and guitarist Alexi Laiho "it's just metal and that's it."

In 1997, the band, still name "[a3007400]", signed up with a small Belgian label to release their first album "Something Wild". But before its release, the band was contacted by [l=Spinefarm Records]. Since they were already signed to another label, they had to fake a split-up and change the name to be able to release the album through Spinefarm. They chose Children of Bodom as the new name, inspired by the unsolved Lake Bodom murders, which took place in Finland in 1960 (teenagers camping next to the Lake Bodom were slaughtered by a maniac).

Alexi Laiho - lead vocals, lead guitar (1993–present)
