    I think Roope was fired by new band management because he is the oldest member - he doesn't look young and wild, so he is not good for marketing. Because nowadays everything is about money and not playing skills.

    Dude... this is extreme metal, not that emo shit where it's all about looks not playing skills. You think Bodom would let their new management decide who plays in their band? You fucking tripping? Then why did they take Antti?

    Yeah, sad to say so, but so it seems. There is no reason for band not to be satisfied by Roope's playing skills. For the last 12 years he proved he is everything Bodom needs for a rhythm guitarist. "They wanted to bring back youth-Bodom style and energy, and Roope wasn't fitting in" ...I mean, c'mon

    And Antti does look younger...but he's there just for couple of shows, until they find someone who looks "badass"...maybe some dude who will wear fedora hat on stage too

    Someone just thought in the new management that this will bring publicity...because most of fans are bitching how old Bodom is never going to be back and so on, they tried this "back to roots" fashion with HOB but it didn't work out...so now they are trying drastic changes...

    This is gotta be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard in my life.

    "Roope doesn't look badass enough", still they throw Henkka on stage with lipstick and strings, and no-one in the band even tries to look metal except Alexi to a degree, Jaska even cut his hair recently... Like Roope looks any less badass than the Bodom fanboy emo bitches? Yes I agree he never looked right for Bodom, but to say that's the reason they fired him and need to teach all the songs to someone else and learn to live with another dude...

    Roope just didn't like that kids' music anymore as much as Alexi would've liked. There needs to be passion and enthusiasm. And he was always different, a session-musician who stuck around.

    Alexi: "Hey guys, I think we're gonna have to sack Roope, because he just doesn't look as evil as the rest of us. We need some emo kid with make up and grim face." Do you realize how gay and disrespectful it is to suggest Bodom are all about on-stage looks... they clearly are not.

    But it wasn't Alexi's decision...the management wants them to look American. That's the point, following the trends. And Roope just doesn't fit there. To me Roope is as badass as he can be, but not to some people obviously...because as you see, they will tour with Lamb Of God. New goal for band - look American. Even Jaska cut his hair haha.

    And every story in the media gives you more publicity. Let's fire one band member and have everyone talk about us again.

    You're still tripping.

    And Roope looked the most American. Hulk Hogan beard, etc. He's a thrash guy, not a melodic black metal guy.

    Well, it's like just my opinion, man :rofl:

    Doesn't mean I'm right

    But Alexi looks gayish American with that fedora hat, maybe they need someone who looks similar to him so that girls can get even more wet when they enter the stage :lol:

    Laiho commented on the new album: “We are close to putting the finishing touches on the new COB record I Worship Chaos and as much fun (but most importantly raw, literally bloody knuckled hard work) it has been making it, I’m more than happy and even more anxious to share this chaos with the rest of the world. So people, put your shades and helmets on, it will get very dark and it might hurt, in a perfect COB fashion of course!”

    Yeah, jokes aside, music is the most important thing. Whoever the band members are.

    Wow what another awesome artwork, especially contrasted with the saturated, cold, and wet Halo of Blood artwork.

    Damn. I like too. And the song titles gloomy. I think we are waiting for something really interesting. It remains live until October.
