Children of BodomHoliday at Lake Bodom (Spinefarm)
Billed as "15 Years of Wasted Youth," Holiday's CD/DVD hits-combo bottles the Finns' scalping collision of synths, witchy skateboard chants, and hatchet thrash – 20 minutes of tour debauchery matched by 20 gun-n-goes ("Needled 24/7"). Celtic and pagan infusion (Dropkick Murphy's stab "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" and "Blooddrunk," respectively) don't excuse suicide by Rick Springfield ("Jessie's Girl").
