Children Of Bodom played their only Finnish summer festival gig of 2010 at the Ankkarock festival. The concert took place in the middle of their studio sessions for the seventh and yet-untitled COB album. Judging by the completely mind-blowing amount of Bodom shirts in crowd, they were clearly one of the most anticipated acts of the weekend.
Having played the British Bloodstock festival the night before, the band hit the stage with little sleep. They're seemingly used to extreme schedules, as this hardly showed through as they launched their set with Follow The Reaper, closely followed by Hate Crew Deathroll.
Bodom isn't understandably too keen on showcasing their new songs on YouTube in cellphone video quality, so the setlist did not include any new material, and - perhaps due to the limited 60 minute playing time and the hectic studio schedule - no other surprise cuts.
Surprises or not, Children Of Bodom is always fun to watch. Pyros were flying left and right during "Angels Don't Kill" and "Every time I Die" and the band was clearly having a blast on the stage. They jammed Lady Gaga's "Alejandro" right before the set-closer Downfall, which got a well-earned round of laughter from the audience.
