Children of Bodom is a Finnish band from the city of Espoo, near Helsinki. The name of the band comes from one of the most famous Finnish murder cases of all time. (The murdering of three teenagers one night at Lake Bodom back in the 60's.)

Early Children of Bodom albums are inspired by classical music and death metal (Red Light in My Eyes pt. 1 starts with a line from J.S. Bach's Invention No.13 in A minor and Red Light in My Eyes pt. 2 includes selections from Mozart's 25th Symphony), and later albums are more inspired by a commercial thrash and hair metal, losing some of its earlier melodic style. A precise definition for their musical genre is discussed by fans and the specialized press alike, often discounting the influences of the band and the composition of songs. The lyrics of their songs are written in the

CHILDREN OF BODOM Reviews

CHILDREN OF BODOM Follow the Reaper

Album · 2000 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Vim Fuego
Children of Bodom should in theory be a great band. Alex Laiho is an amazing guitar talent, capable of licks most guitarists would kill for. The musicians surrounding him are also some of the best in the Finnish metal scene. The band have that slightly menacing “look”, have an obsession with the Grim Reaper, and hell, the band name comes from an unsolved murder. Children Of Bodom seems to possess an aura of power, and the magnitude of expectation built for ‘Follow The Reaper’ was huge.

Then the music starts and all preconceptions are blown away. Where’s the fucking metal? The production is so slick it would smother seabirds on contact. All the vitality and bite is smothered from the music. Any rough edges have been knocked off, filed down and padded for extra safety. The effect is like being kicked in the head repeatedly by a foot wearing a pink fluffy bunny slipper.

Laiho’s solos are faultless in their execution, and are the highlight of the album. However, his riffs are not. The rhythm guitar seems to take every Gothenburg cliché going and play it to its most obvious. It quickly becomes predictable, so that you know what’s coming next even on a first listen. But then Laiho kicks in with another solo, like on “Mask Of Sanity” and the cliché Riffing 101 is forgotten briefly in a moment of metallic ecstasy. Then the moment is gone, and it’s back to the malodorous melodies.

Keyboards feature prominently on this album, which might not have been such a problem if it wasn’t for the fact of their omnipresence. Metal is, after all, a guitar based music form. The keyboards often use a soloing guitar sound, which grates on the nerves because it sounds so artificial. A prime example is the keyboard solo on “Follow The Reaper”. It is technically brilliant, matching the guitar solo in skill and sound, but is aesthetically irritating. The keyboards might well be better used more sparingly, and for atmosphere and special effects, like the “Psycho” strings at the beginning of “Hate Me!”.

The tongue in cheek song titles like “Bodom After Midnight” and “Northern Comfort” should indicate a sarcastic lyrical content, but they don’t. Lyrics aren’t always important in making good music, but these demonstrate Laiho’s poor grasp of English - “(Hang on) got to go/Preview what they oughta know/Keep your head down and fucking die”.

Heavy metal, in any form, is supposed to have at least a modicum of danger. ‘Follow The Reaper’ however, plays it safe on so many levels it may as well be labelled a pop album. The sound is clean, the playing clinical, the feel sterile, and the metal ain’t heavy.

Coming soon to an elevator near you, Children of Bodom in ‘Are You Dead Yet?’ starring Alex “Wildchild” Laiho and a bunch of other guys no one ever remembers or really give a fuck about. What the fuck is the point of this album? Anyone who has followed Laiho knows what a virtuoso he can be, but why would anyone bother to learn to play the guitar and then produce banal, formulaic slop like this? Bodomites (notice how that conveniently rhymes with Sodomites) will be lapping this up, but in metal terms it’s like supermarket muzak, bereft of anything even slightly edgy, over-produced and polished to the point where the shine overpowers the music. The songs are virtually interchangeable with each other, or even with those from any other Bodom album. It’s lamer than a one-legged leper with gangrene and terminal athlete’s foot. This album has fucking keyboard solos on it, for fuck’s sake. The remedial English class lyrical puns are still included too, with clever titles like ‘Bastards of Bodom’ and the oft-abused quote ‘If You Want Peace…Prepare for War’. This is like Europe with Jonny Hedlund from Unleashed on vocals, except Europe have bigger balls and Jonny would know better. This is a metal album by weight of dictionary definition only. If anyone recommends you this album, smack them heartily around the head and get yourself something heavier.

2011’s Relentless Reckless Forever is the seventh full-length studio album by the Finnish Melodic Death Metal band Children Of Bodom. There are nine tracks and the album clocks in at a succinct 36 minutes.

It was seen at the time of its release as something of a return to form for the band as it brought back touches of the speed and neoclassical elements that had been toned down on the Are You Dead Yet? and Blooddrunk records. It’s a remarkably slick, professional sounding, expertly produced affair, blending the sounds of records like Are You Dead Yet? and the savagery of earlier stuff like Hatebreeder.

The sound is a mixture of the modern Bodom style of Groove Metal bounce, Slight industrial tinged mechanical sounding riffs, and the occasional slow sections with the early Bodom recipe of Thrash riffs, Death riffs, mostly Melodic lead guitar, frequent guitar solos, a lot of double-kicks, interesting drum fills, and a sort of Power Metal style larger-than-life bombast. That’s all topped off with Alexi’s instantly recognizable voice.

Some fans aren’t so keen on this record, or the two which preceded it, and only enjoy the early stuff, so maybe its not the best place to start. Pick up the classics first, and if you still want some more Bodom this is a good place to go next. I wouldn’t necessarily pick this particular record to win over a non-fan with, but I wouldn’t neglect it when choosing a best-of playlist. For what its worth, I personally enjoy this album a hell of a lot and listen to it pretty often.

Highlights include the opener ‘Not My Funeral,’ the closer ‘Northpole Throwdown’ and the lyrically offensive but incredibly catchy ‘Pussfoot Miss Suicide.’

In Summary; If you like Heavy Metal, virtuosic guitar and keyboard playing, technicality and don’t dislike harsh vocal styles, then Children Of Bodom are definitely a band you should consider trying out. Relentless Reckless Forever is very solid Bodom record and all but the most jaded and groove-hating fans should find something to like about it. There are enough interesting songs and enjoyable lead guitar moments that fans should find an enjoyable addition to their collection.

2005’s Are You Dead Yet? is the fifth full-length studio album by the Finnish Melodic Death Metal band Children Of Bodom. The record saw a change in the band’s line-up, guitar tunings and musical direction.

Compared to albums like Hatebreeder and Follow The Reaper the album is noticeably slower and feauters considerably less audible influence from Melodic European Power Metal than before, instead their signature sound (Alexi’s recognizable voice and lead guitar style, plus those bright keyboard tones) is meshed with American sounding Groove Metal, to create something familiar but yet unique. On this album, the band would seem equally at home sharing a stage with Helloween or Pantera without seeming out of place at either event.

Regardless of what it sounds like, the quality of the record is high. The production is clean and crisp, the performances are tight and the album is a decent length without overstaying its welcome. There’s plenty of fun double kicks and flashy guitar solos, and a good balance of sticking to a formula you like while making every song sound different to the last.

Highlights include the famous Title Track and single “Trashed, Lost & Strungout” as well as the absolutely furious sounding “If You Want Peace Prepare For War,” and the slow, out of character Groove Metal song “Punch Me I Bleed.”

Overall; This is a different direction for the band, but a very strong album nonetheless. It may be a very good entry point for fans of more British and American music to get into the band and then work backwards to their more European sounding early work

Hatebreeder was the second full-length studio album by the Finnish Melodic Death Metal band Children Of Bodom. It was released in 1999, and remains one of the fan’s favourite records, containing tracks that no concert would look right without.

This was back in the band’s most Neoclassical sounding days, and before they added the slower grooves with 2005’s “Are You Deat Yet?.” The sound on this record is blistering high speed Power Metal sounding music full of virtuosic keyboard solos and dual guitar melodies, but played with the savage ferocity of a particularly nasty Thrash Band, with little touches of European Death Metal in there, and Black Metal influenced harsh vocals topping it all off. Basically, imagine At The Gates playing Helloween or Stratovarius covers and you’ll get a ballpark idea.

The album has a very enjoyable clear production job (that doesn’t feel overproduced) and the music and lyrics are a bit more serious and tasteful than on later Bodom records. There is nothing in the way of filler, the whole album is just track after track of savagely performed, yet entertainingly cheesy, virtuosic Metal.

Highlights include the opener ‘Warheart,’ as well as ‘Downfall,’ ‘Silent Night, Bodom Night’ and ‘Bed Of Razors.’

Overall; if you want some speedy double kicks, lots of impressive shredding and keys and the fun parts of Power Metal played with the ferocity of Kreator, then Children Of Bodom are something you may be interested in. If you do check out and enjoy Children Of Bodom, then Hatebreeder is really worth trying. It’s a succinct, consistent, high-energy blast of Bodom and I’d highly recommend it.
