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 Relentless Reckless Forever

Album · 2011 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
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.

CHILDREN OF BODOM Are You Dead Yet?

Album · 2005 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
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

CHILDREN OF BODOM Hatebreeder

Album · 1999 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
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.

CHILDREN OF BODOM Something Wild

Album · 1997 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
Something Wild is the debut full-length studio album by the Finnish Melodic Death Metal band Children Of Bodom, it was released in 1997 and re-released in 2002 after the band broke through.

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. If you like Children Of Bodom, at some stage or other, this is a good album to check out.

The album is a brief, seven-track, 35-minute collection of fast, aggressive, melodic Metal. This album has a lot more of a Neo-Classical vibe than their modern albums and more of a slight Black Metal tinge to it (although still not overwhelmingly so) than anything else they ever made.

It also has a rawer production and some less-expensive sounding keyboard noises than their later works, the combination of all these things makes it a pretty unique release, and while it definitely unmistakably sounds like Bodom, it has ideas and sounds you’d never hear on later releases.

What it does share with later Bodom albums is that it is a constant barrage of Thrash Riffs, Death Riffs, Melodic lead guitar, frequent blistering fast guitar solos (all of which are amazing even at this early stage of the band’s career), speedy double-kicks, interesting fills, the bombast and attitude of Power Metal and Alexi’s instantly recognizable voice.

Its difficult to pick highlights since there’s only seven tracks and they’re all so good, but my personal favourite is ‘Lake Bodom.’ If you wonder whether or not you’d like this album, I recommend you give that track a listen before making the decision.

In Summary; Something Wild is a raw, charming and interesting record, that any Children Of Bodom should find an enjoyable addition to their collection.

CHILDREN OF BODOM Follow the Reaper

Album · 2000 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
Follow The Reaper is the third full-length studio album by the unique Finnish Melodic Death Metal band Children Of Bodom. It was released in 2000, and has gone on to become something of a fan-favourite record, with many of the tracks becoming live staples.

This would be the last Bodom album before they started incorporating more Groove Metal influences into their sound. The sound here is more based in Melodic European Power Metal than on the albums which would follow.

The album is strong and consistent, with exceptional musicianship and a clear production job. It does a good job of balancing blistering guitar shredding and thundering double-kick speed with nuanced song writing, coming across as an album that is both impressive on a virtuosity level and coherent on the gut level. Choruses are memorable, guitar leads are fun and the record flows well, with no filler or out of place experimental material.

Highlights include the incredibly fun “Bodom After Midnight,” as well as “Everytime I Die” and the single “Hate Me!”

Overall; Follow The Reaper is a very strong album and one which no Children Of Bodom fan should be without.
