Sound — 10
Let me just start off by saying that Children Of Bodom are one of the greatest things ever to come out of Europe. The sound is incredible. Alexi hammering on guitar and Jaska Raatikainen pounding away on the drums - it's all good.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics on this album are some of the best I've ever heard. The only reason I gave this a 4 was because sometimes you can barely hear what Alexi is saying. But other than that, Alexi's vocal skills are one of a kind.
Overall Impression — 10
Children Of Bodom have pushed farther (in my opinion) than any other black metal band of its time. This is the first album I've bought from them after having a friend tell me to check out this song Needled 24/7 by them. After that I had to grab the album. Anyone who hasn't bought this yet, either die or go get it.
