Children of Bodom Thread v2

I find their first 2 albums bearable.

Continue discussion as you so please.

I really like them, I love their classical influences in their earlier albums and you can't argue that the guitar parts are just masterpieces

Ooh, it's back up

Anyhoo, I reckon they just got progressively worse. Their old band had some pretty good stuff going on there

Quite correct.


I sort of liked Are You Dead Yet at one point and that's about it. I wish Laiho would read... something, anything.

I think Alexi has become overrated in the guitar world. He has great chops, but most of his playing simply revolves around the F major scale.

Still, their first few releases were unique and fun, though some filler songs tend to sound the same. The new stuff has a bunch of killer songs, but some rather generic material too.

He is VERY overrated, his chops are pretty sloppy compared to some of metals lesser known guitarists.

I love hatebreeder - best album of theirs easily

Yeah, I think Tokyo Warhearts is just better. The playing is incredibly tight and the studio versions just sound a bit sterile in comparison.

I like the solo in Downfall, in fact that whole song is good. Other than that, they're even harder to enjoy as time goes by. Fun when you're angsty and fourteen years old though.

I used to be obsessed with them, but now I don't really listen to them. Occasionally I'll stick in Hatebreeder or Something Wild.

Hatebreeder and Follow The Reaper are legendary.


Anything else is trash.

don't really like children of bodom. although they were what led to me liking death metal.
i used to, i still think, for what it is, are you dead yet is a good album.

alexi is overrated as a soloist and under-rated among rif***e circles.

Their first three albums are amazing but their newer stuff.....not so much. Although blooddrunk was better then AYDY IMO so hopefully they are going in the right direction. Also are their any Edmontonians going to the autograph signing or the concert on the third? Also first page!

I like them. I call me crazy, but I think they peaked around Follow the Reaper of Hate Crew Deathroll.
