The movie quotes are back, so are the melodies, the rasping vocals, and the guitar/keyboard trade-offs. This could have been released after "Follow The Reaper", as it contains a lot of that album's high points, especially in the guitar work, which is surely Alexi's finest and most polished since Sinergy's "Suicide By My Side". Tracks like "Your Days Are Numbered" and "All Twisted" recall the same gnarled, blackened power metal strokes that made songs like "Bodom After Midnight" such a treat, but the odd chord sequences of later works haunt the opening manifestos. Much has been made of the blast-beat-leaden title track, but where this album shines is in its latter half. It ends in spectacular fashion, forcing you to hit the repeat button.
I never thought Bodom would get themselves sober for long enough to make an album like this. Colour me impressed.
But as of 2011 my expectations for the band's next records and steps, in terms of music, had diminished, since I had been overly disappointed by what they had released with "Relentless, Reckless Forever". An album which appears uninspired, dull, boring, showcasing the repetetion of riffs and melodies, and despite the many times I played it, it hadnt grown on me at all.
Hence, I was very skeptical about the outcome of ther very next record, Halo of Blood. I feared that their lack of new ideas and inspiration would still be perceived in the new album which would be just a "routine" duty to release it, just for the lads to keep their job and paying off the bills.
Yet, I was unexpectedly surprised by playing the record the first time, few days after it came out ! It surely sounds nothing like the earlier records, Something Wild or Hatebreeder, and yet, it's an amazingly fresh and powerful record, full of energy and catching riffs and melodies which not only will not annoy you but it will really captivate the listener.
There are several good songs in it, from the title track to the slowish ballad-like track of Dead Man's Hand on You, the usual Bodom-titled song and the cover track which they got used us to.
Overall is a worth-having record which will not delude the old fans and will surely appeal to the new ones that are not yet accustomed with the darkness (And randomness) of the Bodom world.
Horns Up. Yawwww.
