One of Finland’s best known metal acts, Children Of Bodom, have announced the departure of three of its members.
The current line-up will be playing their final show, ‘A Chapter Called Children Of Bodom’, at the Black Box in Helsinki Ice Hall on December 15.
In a statement, the band says: “It is with heavy hearts that we announce that 2019 will be the last for Children Of Bodom with this line-up.
“After almost 25 years with Bodom, thousands of shows and 10 albums, it is time for Henkka, Janne and Jaska to step back and change direction within their lives.
“All three will miss the fans and supporters in every city in every country the band ever played.
“The last show of this line-up will be on the 15th of December at Helsinki Ice Hall.
