CHILDREN OF BODOM picture
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 · Melodic Death Metal

Warthur
As far as Children of Bodom's stuff go, it seems like many would peg either this one or Hatebreeder as their favourite. For my part, whilst I wasn't too impressed by Hatebreeder, I think Follow the Reaper has just enough of an improvement over it to win me over. It's still a melodic mashup of power metal and death metal, mind, but I think on this album Children of Bodom juggle those two extremely different styles with much more finesse, so the power metal bits don't seem to trip up the death metal parts and the death meal parts better support the power metal aspects. I'd never call it a top-tier classic, but it's entertaining enough.

"Something Wild" is the debut full-length studio album by Finnish death metal act Children of Bodom. The album was released through Spinefarm Records in February 1997. The album was originally meant to be released on a small Belgian label under the IneartheD monicker, but as the band were not satisfied with the deal, they were forced to change their name to Children of Bodom to avoid legal issues when they signed with Spinefarm Records. The name Children of Bodom derives from an infamous Finnish murder case where three teenagers were murdered at Lake Bodom in the 60s by a still unknown killer.

The music on the album is at it´s core death metal, but there are dominant power metal leanings in the music too. Heavy metal and thrash metal riffing are also used, as well as neo-classical elements. Melodic death metal with power metal styled keyboards is maybe a valid simple description of the band´s music. The vocals are growling yet fully intelligible. Occasionally they enter raspy black metal territory.

It´s pretty obvious that the 8 track, 35:58 minutes long album is a debut. Especially if you´re familiar with the band´s later more mature output. This is pretty raw and unpolished and few of the tracks are particularly memorable. The performance by the band is decent and there are a couple of skillfully played sections here and there, but again it´s obvious that these guys could take it up a notch and would do so on the next couple of albums. The fact that the sound production is a bit thin and maybe a bit too unpolished and unbalanced for the style, doesn´t help on my overall impression of "Something Wild" either. All in all it´s a decent debut album by Children of Bodom, which right away established their trademark sound, but the songwriting is immature and the tracks simply don´t stick, so a 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.

Children of Bodom basically do with death metal what Bal-Sagoth do for black metal: namely, they make catchy, cheesy power metal with an aesthetic borrowed from their chosen extreme metal style to produce a fusion of the two styles. Hatebreeder is an enormously catchy and accessible listen, and is a nice gateway drug for power metal fans wanting to acclimatise themselves to death metal shrieks or for death metal fans who want to explore a bit more cheese in their metal, but for me it tends to fall between two stools a little and doesn't scratch my death metal itch, my power metal itch, or "weird cheesy genre mashups" itch for that matter.

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.
