He was on my list of must have interviews for 2019. Janne of Finland’s Children of Bodom and I talked about his home country’s hip hop and rap culture, the difference between 1997 and now with regard to “coolest thing about being in Children of Bodom,” technology, recording, streaming music, and so much more. Do they still practice initiation into the Hate Crew? What word would he use to describe each of his band mates? Listen below to hear the full interview.

About the Author: Susan Welch
Lover of music. Lover of writing. Music is the audible form of emotion, and I have a deep need to find out what it takes to make a song, an album...a band. When a musician says, "No one has ever asked me that before," or "That was the best interview I've ever done," I know I've done my job right.
