    As someone who didn't like the newer albums, it's pretty ironic to see Alexi bring out such a kicker just before he kicked it. The Wildchild knows how to go out in style for sure. Here's to you!

    This guy introduced me to metal and it's weird to live in a world where he isn't around anymore. All I can say is that I owe him a lot in shaping the person that I am today and that I wish him well in the place where he is right now, wherever that may be. Godspeed to you, Alexi.

    It doesn't feel like real I life. I remember the moment when I first heard a Children of Bodom song, it was If You Want Peace... Prepare For War. I also remember the moment when I heard that Alexi died. I was devastated because he was one of my favorite guitarists. The man was brilliant in his guitar playing and the fact that he was knocking on death's door and was still able to write something so good is amazing. I can just imagine being at a live show and screaming Fight! Fight! Fight! But I guess we'll never hear it. We will miss you forever Alexi.

    That scream at the beginning - holy f***.... Goosebumbs. Most epic scream in the history of heavy metal or whatever genre you wanna call it. Freddie Mercury had "Show Must Go On - Alexi Laiho had this, that's the way I see it. Just a masterpiece. Nothing can top this.

And I may wrong but I feel like Daniel's solo is like a farewell to Alexi and Alexi is passing the torch like he knows the clocks ran out. The part when they put their heads together hit me hard. Follow the Reaper Alexi to your Kingdom Come.

    It's making me sad to see one of my heroes from early 20's still making good shit like this, just a lil while before he had to pass away. I've been listening Bodom since their first single which hit me like a hammer, and ofc my friends didn't like it.. (which just makes it worth of much more). Yes, they made couple of shitty albums in between before hexed, but yeah.. R.I.P. Allu, I hope the pillow is good down there.. I will always cherish your memory and all the good times you've been giving to me and myself...
