I doubt that Lake Bodom is from Wacken. They're playing in a beer tent or sth. like this
I don't know how many metal fests have you been throughout your life but on every (heavy) festival there is at least one tent for smaller gigs/beginner/not-that-well-known bands. And COB was still pretty much an unknown little band back in 1998, so I have no doubt about it.
Full wacken 2011 (webcast source)
Trust me, it is, the year is 1998 and Wacken exists from 1990. It wasn't such a big festival as it is now. And Bodom is not playing on the main stage.
That is one of their worst recorded concerts. If I remember well, they came directly to Wacken from USA tour and they look so tired and jetlagged. Too many fuckups on that gig.
FYI this was stolen here
Yeah, sadly... :/
Cool to see such view
Yeah man, thanks. I wish there were more videos like this.
Really love that this community still exits and truly enjoying re-visiting these gems. Even though that it makes me more bummed that I’ll never see this live again, glad this forum lives on.
Hope it doesn’t get shutdown.
These kinda forums are where it's at. Reddit's a joke in comparison, there's very little sense of community over there, unlike here.
Because it's fairly unknown due to the fact that forum as a form of media is pretty much dead by now.
This is a huge long shot, never the less it doesn’t hurt to ask. Does anyone have video from their 2004 tour with Iced Earth, May 19th 2004 venue of Scottsdale AZ? That was the first time I saw them live. Fucking glorious experience!
Alexander Kuoppala playing some Bodom with his friends for the first 35 minutes. It's a shame the video stutters and the sound sucks.
I think the singer and the bassist are his students maybe that's @ESA1996 there?
Oh, and I am glad that he still has the Camo ESP as well, thought he only have the HCDR one.
Also I cannot decide whether the singer has a growling voice like Alu or it's just the sound problem
Anyway, it was great, I rejoiced and constantly smiled when I saw Alexander doing the same stage things and moves like as if ~20 years has never passed. He really turned young again for that 20 minutes.
Also, I had a dream about some reunion, when Bodom broke up, that one day they will invite back all the ex-members to share the stage with them, but sadly with Alexi's death its unlikely to happen (in the near future at least maybe 5+ years later). Anyway, if it ever happens I would like to see this kid for some lead&vocal parts on that show, he really did a great job on the impersonation imo.
Yeah, I actually thought the singer nailed the voice. Fit very well with the music.
I wish I was that good of a screamer! He also has me beat in the guitar playing department
I haven't actually met Ale since around 2013 or 2014 when I was playing bass in the backing band of a singer's performance at the Tauko end-of-summer show. After the song he came up to me and jokingly went something along the lines of "Whaaat? Wrong instrument!" and I was like "Yeeeeeah, I know"
That was interesting. Kinda fun the early voice, reminds me of Amorphis. I notice an improvement in 2004. I always enjoyed Alexi's vocals. Not sure why so many folks gave him a hard time about it.
