I was listening to Bed of Razors and I woke up 4 hours later...I can't believe this band sucks that much I really thought theyd be good 'cause all the hype.

Take this to the ONLY COB thread.

"Slient Night, Bodom Night" is a better then "Bed of Razors" IMO.


QFT.

CoB usually does put me in a deep slumber.

I love bodom and the other day I was thinking how crap that song is too. Listen to Needled 24/7 Silent Night, Bodom Night Follow the Reaper

Bed of Razors is better than anything you'll ever do in your entire life... including die which will definently be the highlight. Now get to the Children of Bodom only thread.

Alexander Kuoppala was this band. Alexi is just a mediocre soloist who steals credit for Alexander's amazing riffs.

I love the old stuff, because Kuoppala could make great melodies and such.


FAGS.

Seriously? I never thought he gave much imput to the band. He said he left cause he wasn't as talented as the others.

i think you were listening to the wrong song. "hate me!" is probly my favorite from them. i have to disagree, however, with alex being the band. yes he is just as good as alexi laiho, and put most of the contribution in to the band, but laiho can solo like a god, as well as write some great music. he shows it in his live shows. he is a hell of an entertainer and he can play almost as well live, which is more to say than about herman li. but alexi also has done alot for the band as well since alex left. alexi writes all of his guitar parts as well as much of the keyboard parts. i think they are all extremely talented musicians, so until you can be in their position than you cant really bash them. theyve come a long way.

Thats funny, I saw them a year ago and alexi was ****ing terrible, he ran around so much he was out of breath for vocal parts, his timing was off and his execution was flawed.

If you want me to compare them to dragonforce, who I also saw, dragonforce kicked the everloving **** out of CoB.

Admittedly CoB are a bit on the boring and repetitve side, however, somehow they have got popular so we have to respect them for that

I really like CoB, One of my favourite bands actually. I dont see why they get so much disrespect. I guess thats what happens when a band starts to get more popular. They are all very talented with there instruments and I like the way Alexi does his vocals. Some say they arent good, But honestly... In the whole black-death-whatever type of growled vocal genres how can you say one is more talented than the other? And no, I was not classifying the band so dont even start with the genre bull****.

Easily.

Just like any other type of genres, there are bands that are good and there are band that are better.

In this case, I find there are many bands out there that are better than COB.

That doesn't mean I don't like these guys though.

But yeah, Bodom is alright but they get overhyped too much nowadays. They are good but there are better bands out there.

You mean he's a terrible Yngwie clone? You hit the nail right on the head.

DEFINTELY not the next Yngwie, just one in a line of many many clones.

Overhyped and overrated.
