Bodom After Midnight Share Music Video For ‘Paint The Sky With Blood’

Bodom After Midnight have released their first new song since frontman Alexi Laiho’s death.

“Paint the Sky With Blood” has all the hallmarks of a classic Children of Bodom song: Laiho’s ear-piercing shrieks, heart-pounding energy, racing riffs, and gritty lyrics. Watch the performance video below.

“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,” said the band’s surviving members. “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.

Bodom After Midnight will release their debut EP, Paint the Sky With Blood, April 23rd in honor of the late Alexi Laiho. The three-song EP was recorded in Finland in 2020 and was meant to mark “the beginning of an exciting new chapter.” It includes two original tracks – the title track and “Payback’s a Bitch” – as well as a cover of Dissection’s “Where Dead Angels Lie.”
