Twenty years of Bad Afro Records

Twenty years of Bad Afro Records

2016 marks the 20th year of ”pushing Scandinavian rock to the man!” for Copenhagen-based Bad Afro Records. From 1996 and until now, the label has had Lars Krogh at the helm and has consistently put out great records within the very specific musical niches in Scandinavian garage rock, trippy freak-outs and occasionally experimental music – all of which has, of course, been put out on vinyl, Krogh’s format of choice.

Children Of Bodom plotting "Something Wild" 20th Anniversary tour

Posted by AP on 6/12/16

Fans of Children Of Bodom’s older material should rejoice in the prospect that the Finnish metallers seem to be plotting a European tour to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of their début album, ”Something Wild”, next year.


The band’s frontman Alexi Laiho is not sure how it will pan out just yet, but he did offer the following comments in an interview with OCWeekly.com:


Well, actually next year is the 20 year anniversary of our first album and we are talking about that for maybe a European tour, and see how it goes. But I don’t know yet if we’re going to play the whole album or probably just a lot of rare songs from it we never play live. We might do a mix of our first two albums. It will be weird, it will be a trip but fans will dig it. I am thinking instead of playing a whole album, we will play the most obscure tracks.
