Children of Bodom played one of their last gigs with the current lineup at Logomo in Turku, Finland on December 12, 2019. Bloodred Hourglass opened the night with a no nonsense all out energy packed show, followed by Brymir who played my personal favorite gig of theirs this year (out of 3-4 gigs). Bodom started out a bit rocky, and later than schedule, but it smoothed out through out the show. The guys took breaks often but looked like they were still into the music, though you could tell the dynamic had shifted a bit. There was no proper encore, and the set seemed a bit short, but it was a satiating performance, and brought back an air of nostalgia and a touch of melancholy knowing that would be the last time to shoot the band as it is and has been for years. I’ve personally been shooting them since 2011, eight different times in two different countries and six different cities.  It’s been fun! Thank you for the music!

Bruce himself says: 
“It is finally here. A lot of hard work went into this film and I sincerely hope you dig it. 
Please follow the link below for viewing options and remember to please check out & support the bands in this film.

I can remember at school in the 1970s, friends buying Roxy Music albums mainly for their album covers, and I am old enough to remember Cher when she remembered to put her dress on over her underclothes before she came out onto the stage to perform.

Still, time moves on and even now we have any number of female musicians who are an integral part of the Heavy Metal scene. Not just as singers, but guitarists and drummers as well. We were able to catch up with a number of musicians to find out what attracted them to the hard and heavy music world and if they had a story of how they took the plunge, what challenges they faced, and how things have changed, or if they have at all.”
