Eight Gigs: Children of Bodom

Tues., Mar. 1, 7 p.m., Ace Of Spades, $20

Although the band is currently supporting Megadeth and Suicidal Tendencies on a full-fledged national tour, Finland’s Children of Bodom will headline a special one-off show with Colorado’s Havok and Sacramento’s own Graveshadow. Led by guitarist-vocalist Alex Laiho, CoB will have lots of material to choose from, dating back to their formative years as well as the newest release, I Worship Chaos, which came out in October of last year on Nuclear Blast records. Fans of melodic death metal with heaps of guitar and keyboard prowess would be wise to check this one out. 1417 R Street, Sacramento, www.cobhc.com.
