It was announced earlier today that Children of Bodom vocalist Alexi Laiho has passed away at the age of 41.
Laiho passed at his home in Helsinki as he “suffered from long-term health issues during his last years”, but not cause of death has been reported at this time.
“We are crushed by the sudden passing of our dear friend and band member. Words cannot describe this shock and the profound sadness that we feel”, his Bodom After Midnight bandmates Daniel Freyberg, Mitja Toivonen and Waltteri Väyrynen stated.
Laiho’s wife Kelli Laiho-Wright, stated: “Alexi was the most loving and magnificent husband and father. Our hearts are eternally broken.”
Our thoughts are with Laiho’s family and friends during this time.
