Dispatched, formed in 1991, released a noteworthy (and post-worthy) album in 2000 called "motherwar". It contains solid melodies, fast riffs and black metalesque vocals (though NOT a black metal disc). The band sounds much like a power metal band with a screecher instead of a singer. Motherwar also has a strong cover of THE FINAL COUNTDOWN.

I don't think that's the correct use of the phrase "going mad."

This is a good song, I hate that people think it's Bodom though.

I suppose it is pretty similar. It's not a bad cover at all... it's just how europe would've sounded, had they been born in norway haha!

There is another band that covered this song too. Anyone heard of Norther. It's another bodom clone.

There are probably a lot more other bands that covered this song. Also, what does Norther being a Bodom clone have to do with this band?

implying that this band is a bodom clone itself.

(and there ain't nothing wrong with "cloning" a washed-out band and doing it better.)

Norther are not a Bodom clone. Norther are every bit as good as Children of Bodom. How does this cover rate to Norther's? Haven't heard this one.

Norther's is good. It's on Dreams of Endless War, but I have it on the Spinefarm Hardcovers CD.

I listen to Norther and cob quite a bit and I really dont understand why there called a CoB clone. They sound *similar*, but so do 500 death metal bands.

Also, Norther's The final countdown cover owns this IMO. There both hilarious though.
