Children Of Bodom singer Alexi Laiho was rushed to a hospital after suffering extreme stomach pain in Oslo, Norway on Tuesday night (July 3). Tuesday night the band Facebook ran this update: "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! Henkka, Roope, Janne, Jaska." Thanks for the report to AntiMusic.com.

    Hopefully recovers soon. by reading the title, is was scared he might tried to commit suicide again. And i personally like children of bodom, because their first albums actually got me into metal.

    Does it really matter whether anyone hates the band or not? The guy's potentially very ill, and I hope he's ok. His health is the main thing regardless of whether anyone likes his music or not. People are such idiots.

    A strict diet of whickey and beer will do that to you. In all seriousness though, I hope there's nothing seriously wrong with him.

    If it is that kind of a coincidence. I went to Mayhem fest last weekend and Slipknot only had 27 members cause Jim Root was in the hospital with a burst appendix

    It couldn't just be a normal stomach pain, no, CoB are a metal band so everything they do has to be EXTREME. Feel bad for the guy though.

    Bleeding hell, all you haters... This isn't about COB...Its about a fellow guitarists welfare. Show a little love and respect won't you..

    I haven't listened to Children of Bodom since like 9th grade, but still bad news none the less. Hope everything works out okay for him and his fans.

    Isn't it kinda weird how Bodom is someone's favorite band for a while, then everyone just kinda stops listening abruptly?

    I love Alexi as much as the next CoB fan, but let's be honest here... No need to bash someone for thinking it could be alcohol related. It's Alexi we're talking about, have you seen the Shovel Knockout music video? Either way, hope he gets better soon.

    While I don't listen to them much anymore, Alexi was my first introduction to a whole new level of musicianship. I understand now that Children of Bodom is a band that introduces a lot of people to Scandinavian metal and (to a lesser extent) guitar virtuosity. That counts for something. I wish him all the best.

    Why all the hatred towards the band? I'm not much of a fan, but they are a great band and alexi is great player.

    Well their style changed kinda abruptly, i still listen to them, but only the "old songs" i think Hate Crew Deathroll is last album from them i really liked, Are you dead yet had some songs i liked a bit. But everytime they will release a new album i will check it out to see if sounds like the older albums. And if they make something that sounds like earlier i will get fan again.

    I actually met Alexi briefly in Helsinki . One of the most chill guys I've ever met, hope he gets better.

    ^When he's better, they'll have a Taste of his Sctyhe, followed by a Sixpounder with the nurse.

    I was going to be at their concert in Malm, I really hope that he'll be fine. He's one of my favourite guitarists, and they've already nabbed Dime :/ Stayni there, Alexi!

    Alexi hasn't been sober in 13 years, and I say that with love haha. In any case, lets hope for a speedy recovery. He's funny as hell at live shows.
