News: Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom Hospitalized

What an incredibly shitty week for metal, Randy Blythe has been incarcerated for manslaughter charges stemming from an incident in 2010 where a fan died from being pushed off the stage and hitting his head with footage to account, Abigail Williams are calling it quits (though this could be viewed as good news for some), Havok and a bunch of other bands have been pushed off the Shockwave Festival tour, Winds of Plague are making a new album and now the lead guitarist and singer for Children of Bodom has been hospitalized. The band have issued the following announcement via Facebook:

“It is with great regret that we are forced to cancel tonight’s show in Oslo as well as tomorrow night’s show in Malmö.

"Alexi was rushed to the Oslo hospital earlier this evening with extreme stomach pain. The doctors in the emergency unit checked him and while we are still waiting for a diagnosis, they made clear that he will not be able to perform within the next 48 hours.

"We apologize to all our fans who have bought tickets to these shows - we will try to reschedule both Oslo and Malmö at the earliest possibility. Keep your fingers crossed with us that Alexi will get well again soon!”
