Music inspired by murder
Finland metal merchants Children Of Bodom, named after the now-infamous murders at Lake Bodom, are finally coming to Sacramento. Make no mistake; the hype is warranted. Fueled by the best elements of power, speed and death metal, this fearsome quintet’s latest album, Are You Dead Yet?, has already caught fire on these shores. If 2000’s Follow The Reaper or 1999’s Hatebreeder aren’t in your collection, perhaps a brief sojourn down to 3522 Stockton Boulevard is in order. The Colonial Theatre may be a little off the radar, but it has become the home for hard-rock shows too large for The Boardwalk. Also on Friday’s bill are God Forbid and Through the Eyes of the Dead. The show begins at 8 p.m., and tickets are $20 for all ages. Headbangers unite; it’s gonna be a long night. Visit www.cobhc.com for more information.
