    Needless to say Alexi was a huge inspiration to me, and COB really got me into playing guitar and music. What a legacy Alexi left to us, and I think I didn't even realise before his passing away how hardworking and creative he was. I have always admired his playing and song writing abilities, but I guess it really hit me once I heard he passed away. The first four COB albums will always have a special place in my heart (and playlist).

    As a tribute I made a gallery of photos of Alexi from about ten Children Of Bodom shows I photographed during 2011-2019. I hope you like it:

    So I was randomly browsing on YouTube when Arkanes Soon Departed tribute video showed up on the sidebar. I clicked on it. My eyes got wet from watching it again. Then the autoplay started a video of the last BAM show. Now Im writing this post here with tears running down my face.... it still hurts so fucking much.....

    I was listening to W.A.S.P. yesterday, no need to explain how a great inspiration they were for Alexi. So Youtube recommended me a tribute video with Wild Child song for Alexi. I shut it down immediately, I couldn't even watch a second of it.

    I don't know if this will sounds reasonable and sober, but I still feel it like an unreal thing. It's not just some famous great guitarist, it's Alexi. And as someone said: ""Alexi" and "Dead" cannot be put in one sentence."
    You know when someone dies there are phases of accepting the death. First two are denial and anger. Well I am at the first.
    When I opened that video I felt... Fear. More like horror. I couldn't watch someone's work, no matter how great made and with idea, saying goodbye to Alexi. I couldn't make myself one. We always used to find him there, being over life and failure and pain and everything. I am burning a candle for him every day since the date, but my brain refuses to realize the truth in it's full meaning.

    A few days ago I watched old video with him, and when it finished I almost asked: And what you will publish next?
    It's too much to take, man, just too much.
