That's probably because the band is dying, and can't return.

They either make a sub-par album in the style they want to write in or a sub-par album similar to what fans want but it will indefinitely fail due to the fact they don't like writing in the style.

Plus Alexi has gotten sloppy with playing only the easier stuff from blooddrunk albums, so it is dissapointing seeing him play things like KTS live

Exactly this. They are just dying. The original fans are growing tired of their older ****, and disliking most of the new ****. They seem to have kind of given up and let the more mainstream popularity they have attained run its course.

They've created some gems for sure, great songs that will go down as classics (At least in my book). But I think that's all we're gonna see from them.

Yeah im growing tired of their old stuff slowly. Unless the next album (if there even is one) is like Hatebreeder 2: Still breeding hate or follow the reaper 2 I will be done with them. CoB were angels that have now fallen from grace. I watch the passage to the reaper dvd and can't believe Alexi is the same guy that made AYDY or Blooddrunk. He was off with the Jackson RR and CoB were better off with Alexander. No disrespect to Roope, but Alexander is more suited to them.

I'm not sure it was anything to do with Roope to be honest, it's Alexi who writes most of the songs and lyrics and the music is going to move in whatever direction he chooses.

HCDR is a very different sounding record to Something Wild anyway, and those were both recorded with Jacksons and Alex.

Yeah good point. Although HCDR and Something wild were still amazing albums. Also didn't Alexi get the Jackson stolen before AYDY

Sorry for double posting but I have to say this. I saw them last night and it was epic. It was my first concert. I jumped in a few pits and they were almost perfect. People were climbing up the pillars that hold the building up and diving off them. I was front row

So a friend of mine went to the concert in Edmonton last night. Then as she was heading to her car, she got called over by Jaska, and ended up hanging out with them till one in the morning. I'm so jealous.

I agree to an extent. Alexi got me into sweeping, but he's influenced me more rhythmically and tonally than anything. Alexi's the reason I turn my mids up more. I can't stand scooping my mids any more because it feels so flat and lifeless.

I've been a fan for about 3 or 4 years now and got started with AYDY and went back. I love all of their albums for various reasons (although it's easy to pick out some aspects of the newer material that could have been changed... Imagine Blooddrunk with the Follow The Reaper tone). The music still speaks to me in a way that other music can't. And I still get adrenaline rushes from their red albums especially. Something about both Something Wild and HCDR (their attempt at returning to their roots) is just awesome.

Children of Bodom were sort of my gateway band into heavier stuff so they'll always hold that special place. Although at first I abhorred Alexi's vocals, eventually they grew on me which consequently led to me liking other, better done harsh vocals.

Favorite song is Bed of Razors, unfortunately they didn't play it when I saw them , but they only had about a 45 minute set because they were supporting LoG. Needless to say I was disappointed but they still put on a great show, I think it was right before Alexi fell out of his bed or whatever and hurt himself too.
