Views on Children Of Bodom?

What are your views on Bodom?

I just wondering if you lot at metaltabs.com think what I think of them...

They are definitely my favourite band, I just think there fucking amazing. I mean every song is like my best song. Alexi Laiho, great soloist, they sound great.. and his rhythm is great... the other guitarist (name alex i think), is pretty damn fucking good... the keyboard dude lol, is amazing... the drummer has loads of great double bass etc., they are just great.

Do you tihnk the same as me? or dont you? if you dont then why etc?

Just a random topic

Prolly there is another thread about this, but bodom deserves another.

Yeah, Alexi is amazing, the accuracy of his sweeps blows my mind.

I can't stand them. Song titles and lyrics are sometimes a big thing for me, and CoB's are really, really, atrocious. I only have HCDR so I may be partially talking out of my ass.

Alexi has good technical skills, but CoB are shite. My friend lent me all their albums on an mp3, and not one song was above average.

.... Why do newbs have to be so god damned stupid?

COB are decent.... great solos, decent rhythm guitar, non-existant bass, and below average drums. Vocals are terrible. Like pandemonium said, i only own HCDR so i, too, may just be talking out of my ass.

the bass player is amazing

listen closer, moron

and the drummer can keep up double bass with ease. ask any drummer to try and play a full bodom song and youll see what i mean

well, while listening to HCDR i dont even hear any bass, which is what i was talking about. they put him too low in the mix. i barely heard him live either.

i agree that he can play double bass very well, and he may be a very skilled drummer, but its all very simple in their songs.

Again, i tell you, i've only heard HCDR.

the lead playing is top-notch, but the rest is cheesy, especially the keyboards.
i do like his vocals, because i can actually sing along and almost get his sound spot-on.
but overall, the guitar playing is excellent, the keyboard, while cheesy, is well played, and i love the way the keys and guitars intermingle, i cant hear shit for bass, the drums are decent, and the lyrics are shit.

Thats the problem.. on HCDR Alexi changed his tone from his classic 80's metal tone (ALOT of treble) to a more ear pleasing tone... but they didnt do anythign about the bass. On the previous albums you cna hear the bassist fine.

I dig 'em.

Overall, good band, but the lyrics suck ass. Then again, he improvises alot. Plus, you've got to give him credit fo singign and playing the way he does at the same time.

Classic 80's? I don't think that tone sounds anything like classic 80's. And yeah, on HCDR the guitar tone sounded like....I don't really know how to say it but like cheaper and more fake sounding. It lost some of that really hi-gain chunky sound on like FTR.

I heard some of their stuff. I like it, I don't love it, but I like it. Alex is a awesome guitarist and their music is pretty damn desent, but the vocals don't do anything for me. They remind me of In Flames.
