Alexi Laiho’s Bodom After Midnight Debut “Paint The Sky With Blood” Music Video


Bodom After Midnight, the outfit fronted by the late Alexi Laiho, have premiered the music video for the title track to their debut EP, “Paint The Sky With Blood“. That outfit found Laiho joined by his former Children Of Bodom bandmate Daniel Freyberg along with bassist Mitja Toivonen (ex-Santa Cruz), drummer Waltteri Väyrynen (Paradise Lost) and keyboardist Vili Itäpelto (Seraphiel).

The band stated:

“Like ourselves, Alexi was beyond stoked about these songs and anxious to get these out, so we are happy that we can fulfill his wish. Needless to say, we are honored and proud to be a part of his very last creative work and to unleash it the way he wanted it. It’s time to let the beast out of the cage one more time as a celebration of Alexi’s music, legacy and the man himself.”

The group tracked this outing this past November at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, FIN, roughly a month before Laiho‘s death on December 29th, 2020 due to ‘alcohol-induced degeneration of the liver and pancreas connective tissue’.

In February the band announced that they would be paying tribute to the life of Laiho by releasing these final recordings with him on April 23rd through Napalm Records.
