Children Of Bodom boost Finnish exports

In a newly published study by Music Export Finland, the value of domestic (i.e. Finnish) music exports around the world in 2009 was estimated at 32.1 million, which is 38 percent more than the previous year. The most important target areas for Finnish music are in Europe but the US also accounts for 10%. Children Of Bodom are, of course, a contributor to this success story. Their new album, Relentless Reckless Forever, which was released last month, has climbed into the sales charts in several countries.

"Finland is a world leader in music education and content production – in almost all genres and styles – and because our content is in good shape, there is now demand on international markets. I see that in my work all the time," Samu Haber, singer and songwriter for the group Sunrise Avenue, comments on the research. "In addition to HIM, Apocalyptica, Nightwish, Children of Bodom, The Rasmus, Sunrise Avenue and other trailblazers, dozens of Finnish artists and songwriters now enjoy great appreciation globally," adds Music Export Finland’s Executive Director Paulina Ahokas.
