Henkka T. Blacksmith

Henkka T. Blacksmith

Real/full name:
Henri Samuli Seppälä
42 (born Jun 7th, 1980)
Place of birth:
Finland (Espoo, Uusimaa)


Seppälä started playing guitars thanks to his brother, even though in his first band he played drums and only later he definitely switched to a 5-string bass. He joined Children of Bodom in 1996 when they were still called Inearthed, replacing Samuli Miettinen.


Seppälä's first band was called Aivokasvain, which translates to English as "brain tumour".

Seppälä's nicknames are Henkka and Torso, hence the "T." in the middle of his stage name. Moreover, "seppä" literally means "blacksmith" in Finnish.

He is the only member of Children of Bodom who has never had any side-project.
