Children of Bodom's talent is just excetional. Label them melodic death metal, however in reality, they are death metal with simply unbeliveable talent.

All you need to do is listen to the debut "something wild" and realise that the song structure is still the same... it just never ever gets boring.

Follow the reapers sees a moderate decrease in Bodoms electonic elements, but they are far from totally gone (thank heavens)

FTR also contain my favourite Bodom song out of their enture discography, the self titled.

Bodom are not only recommened for fans of speed/death metal but also for bands such as dragonforce and stratiovarious. just dont expect any clean vocals. Bodom scream like no one else, and its simply brilliant.

This is for fans of extreme musicianship and likewise, brutally fast and vicious. This album could put a smile on the face of a dragonforce fan, as it equally could for a 1349 fan.

A mixture of death metal vocals and melodic heavy metal guitars, lots of solo's and hints of big 80's rock acts. Atmospheric and musically great, if you like long guitar tracks, gothic music and black metal with more melody and less vocals its a nicely rounded album. A few more vocals wouldnt go a miss but plenty of strong tracks.

these finnish masters really know how to make powerful music. this album, whilst not their best, is still an absolute stunner. tracks like 'Hate Me' and 'Follow the Reaper' involve you in the music, not the sort of thing to listen to whilst doing homework! the thing that catches my mind, though, is the superb lead guitarist, who, I believe, is only about 20 years old, and shows the promise to make him a legend. That's anothe point. These people are so young, and yet have an very impressive discography. To any black metal fans, cradle of filth fans, dimmu borgir fans - buy this album, and also check out 'Hatebreeder'. to anyone just getting into this music - buy it too! you'll be hooked on the solo work of each.

I first got into CoB from someone telling me about them being power metal (which i am obsessed by) so i checked them out, they are fantastic, i have all their albums, i cant pick a favorite, but this one seems to be the most melodic of them all, i 'd like ask people why they think this is 'melodic death/black metal'? whats black metal about it apart from the vocals? nothing! these guys are melodic power metal, with black metal vocals, which is a good mixture.
'Follow the reaper' - and excellent opener with some complcated guitar work from singer/guitarist/songwriter/mastermind Alexi Laiho,and a catchy chorus.
'Bodom after midnight' a nice maiden style intro and a good chorus makes this a highlight,nice backing vocals lso...'Children of decadence'has some good lyrics and melodic lead riff, a total helloween style chorus line.
'Everytime i die' is slow and chugs along nicely, very good lyrics and good vocals
'Mask of sanity' another highlight,good lyrics,good chorus and mint leads!
'Taste of my scythe'is very melodic with an angry chorus and murderous lyrics, with an intro speach from the 'exorcist 3' (just like the opening track)
'Hate me!' ahh the single, fantastic lyrics and middle section, great lead work
'Northern comfort' my favorite track from the album, heavy chuncky main riff, good lyrics and fantastic emotional chorus.
'Kissing the shadows' a cool closing track, very very melodic, plenty of pinched harmonics and fantastic lead guitar work from Alexi and Alexander, also the import includes a melodic cover of WASP's 'hellion' which is good also, all in all a great album, from CoB and worth getting, power metal with black metal vocals, very new and very exciting,nice job guys!

Yes, they delivered again in gloriously over the top metal form. FTR is very much like Hatebreeder, so similar that it takes a few listens to hear the subtle differences. So expect the following; jaw dropping solos, high velocity thrashing, magestic keyboards, a mix of gargled black metal screams and rough singing and probably some of the most solid drumming you'll ever hear.

FTR sees COB stepping of the gas a little bit and working more on texturing their sound rather then blasting at 8000 miles per hour, such as on the wonderfully brooding mid paced epic Every Time I Die. Keyboards are also more prominent and a bit more video-game sounding then before wich gives the band a bit more of an 80's cheese feel. But thats nothing so bad is it?

COB are a band that always delivers quality and like their other albums this a masterful exercise in how to play technical metal with passions, panache and bravado. I;d say this is their second best, as i doubt they'll ever top Hatebreeder. If you've liike any of their other albums you'll love something on here.

This is the start of something very special indeed. They have improvedsince their last album hatebreeder and have gone from brilliant to totally awesome. Their third album follow the reaper incorporates a new dimension to their sound. while retaining their death metal of old they have suceeded when others have failed. Songs like kissing the shadows and hate me rip your speakers in half. This album has some of the best guitar solos for a long time and the keyboard gives the album that atmospheric fell. Seriosly follow the reaper is awesome and fans of thismusic should own this (I have) This is the new wave of melodic thrash!
