Children of Bodom 

When: Sat., Feb. 25 2012
Finnish death-metal band Children of Bodom named themselves after a mass murder that took place in their homeland in 1960 that involved dead, bludgeoned teenagers. Appropriately, the band's music hits just as hard. Last year's Relentless Reckless Forever, their seventh album since 1997, is a venomous but melodic listen. The group is so popular in its native country that the record that was certified gold the day it came out. Children of Bodom take themselves seriously enough to churn out complex, interesting songs, but they're also looser and more playful than many of their peers, cracking smiles between the heavy riffs. They've been known to break out spirited covers of Britney Spears’ “Oops! ... I Did it Again” and Eddie Murphy’s “Party All the Time” in concert. Even some of their original material, like “Shovel Knockout” and “Everytime I Die,” showcases their taste for black-humor brutality. With Eluveitie, Revocation, and Threat Signal. 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $25, $20 in advance. -- Ben Gifford
