CHILDREN OF BODOM Mainman Discusses Covers Compilation

CHILDREN OF BODOM frontman Alexi Laiho is featured in a new interview with Robert Gray at Ultimate-Guitar.com as part of a series entitled Hit The Lights. An excerpt appears below:
Ultimate-Guitar.com: First of all, why has Children Of Bodom opted to release covers compilation 'Skeletons In The Closet'?
Alexi Laiho: "We've recorded a shitload of covers within the last ten years, and a lot of people have approached us, asking "Where can I find this?" or "Where I can I find that?". It's hard to find some of our covers. Also, a lot of people just approached us, suggesting "Why don't you put all of your covers on the same CD?". Since we'll finish touring next November, and will be writing music, we wanted to release something. We thought, 'Why not do that whole covers album thing?'"
Ultimate-Guitar.com: One of those two exclusive cover tracks is 'Antisocial', which was originally recorded by TRUST. Why did Children Of Bodom opt to cover that specific song?
Alexi Laiho: "'Antisocial' is one of two covers we just recorded a couple of months ago. We knew that we had to record two songs, and also knew we would cover PAT BENATAR's 'Hell Is For Children'. We were just figuring out what other song we would cover, and someone just said 'Why don't we do something by ANTHRAX?' I know that 'Antisocial' isn't an original by Anthrax, but we covered their cover. It's a cool, punk'ish sounding metal song, so we covered that, and it turned out to be pretty cool after all."
