Album Review

With the presence of brutal riffs and keyboards, Finland's Children of Bodom sounds at times like Fear Factory fronted by a hardcore screamer, especially on their 2005 release, Are You Dead Yet? The group's fifth studio album (which was co-produced by Children of Bodom and Mikko Karmila, the chap who produced their previous outing, 2003's Hate Crew Deathroll) shows the quintet plowing full steam ahead, as the venom continues to bubble to the surface throughout. But the group also has an unmistakable prog metal edge to boot, as the tricky interplay between guitarist Alexi Wildchild Laiho (who also doubles as vocalist) and keyboardist Janne Warmen on "Punch Me I Bleed" certainly brings to mind Dream Theater. And since it's nearly impossible to hear any new European metal band from the mid-'90s onward and not hear an unmistakable Iron Maiden influence, the guitar work between Laiho and Roope Latvala in "Bastards of Bodom" certainly brings to mind Dave Murray and Adrian Smith. Although they may often be lumped in with the majority of other European "extreme metal" bands, there is definitely a progressive air that surrounds Children of Bodom.

Customer Reviews

COB rocks!

As a new listener to COB, I was blown away by the first track of this album "Living Dead Beat" - it simply rocks. This album has some pulverising metal riffs yet couples this with great melodies from both the keyboards and the guitars. "Are you dead yet?" and "In yer face" are awesome examples of this. I would only mark this album down because of its relatively short length, given that the last track is a cover of Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" - no need for this. Anyone who loves metal with a preference for cool guitars, vocals that are aggressive but not death-like, crystal clear drumming and melodies which are simply uplifting, will like this album. I'm off to check out their previous creations...

Extreme Power Metal At It's Finest

Courtousy of out finnish friends children of bodom we have upon us an excellent album which blends together elements of power metal with death metal to give us what we have here today ARE YOU DEAD YET? Opening up with the anthem that is living dead beat and finnishing (pun intended) on the brilliant cover of Billy Idol's (Yes That Guy Is Still alive) Rebel Yell we have approximately 45 minutes of godlike finnish metal. cant say too much else except ignore the guy who says colony its a diabolical album only buy inflames albums from clayman onwards

Founded by lifelong friends Alexi Laiho (guitar/vocals) and Jaska Raatikainen (drums), the band originally formed under the name Inearthed.
