"Are You Dead Yet" is tr00!

Huh, after listening to the whole album, all I can say is... OMG!

I mean, I usually listen to traditional metal ( to avoid the cheesy term "tr00 metal head" ) bands, such as Slipknot, Marylin Manson, and Avril Lavrigne, and I don't know why do you find this album commercial or something.

...

...

Just kidding.

( I promise not to say "Fuck you Gavin!!!!111 You're better off dead!!!1111" during this thread. )

Now seriously, I've listen to the whole album and I don't find this shit commercial at all. I don't hear the nu-metal stuff, maybe there just like 2 parts during all the album that could sound like "nu", but those are in the line of that really heavy parts that we could hear in HCDR. ( more Bodom than nu I would think, and if you think that CoB already sold out with HCDR then... ) There is even a song, where you can hear some Something Wild elements, and you can also notice some kind of eighties reminiscence in that same song, but kind of modernized with bodom-style.

This is a new and fresh album, lots of catchy choruses, lots of melodies, lots of heavy parts, lots of *fucks* I mean, this is not simple, this is not even commercial!

This is surely better than another HB or FTR ( great albums both, being FTR my favourite ). Just look to Stratovarius, and how stuck they got ( although I've heard they've managed to do something new in their last album ).

To all tr00 metalheads, open your minds and give a listen to this album. You may ejaculate!

Yeah, I agree. This album fuckin rocks. Very good music, solo's are great, (stfu, all you "professional guitarists" here, go and play this shit, or make better stuff ands stop whining) some are better than others, melodies are cool and whole album has a fresh feeling in songs.

This is all a matter of taste of course, but I dont see anything good about AYDY. None of the elements that made bodom good are in it. It's like metallica: if you like alt rock pseudo metal, then I'm sure you'll like load or reload more than kill em all. They're two completely different things though.

I have to totally agree with you. I wont say that AYDY? sucks, because it doesn't, but I don't like it. As you said, all of the elements that made Bodom so fantastic (for me and many others) are now gone. That's really sad but we can't do much about it. At least I don't think that whineing on the internet will make Alexi change his mind and go back to writing music like he did before.

I also gave it a listen a few day's ago...I was open-minded, and I banned all the prejustice that you might get when you read on this board..

and well...

It's not Nu-Metal, and they didn't sell out, but, as simple as I can say it:
I don't like it.
No song made me think 'WOOW holy shhiiiit!'
I simply don't like it, that's it...

Fact is, the best song on the CD is comprised of stolen pantera riffs.

I like it but not as much as Follow The Reaper. But I like it as equally as the other albums. Maybe Hatebreeder is up there with FTR but the others I love equally. I don't actually worship SW, but its my least listened to of their albums, so maybe thats why. All great albums though in my opinion, but the newer ones are easier to get others to listen to because of the production, then move them onto the older stuff.

yeah so??
infect I don't really think it's stolen
they just have to try something news
you can't make 8 albums on the same way
and there's nothing commercial or Nu metal on the cd that's bullshit
maybe it's more industrial and pantera/inflames or whatever but still fucking bodom
maybe not follow the reaper or hatebreeder

How to make people who don't like the album happy:
Take 1 copy of the album and 1 copy of older releases.
Switch the CD's around in reverse order. Now you can tell everyone how Something Wild sucks and you are glad they have improved and are much better now. You can even print up your own labels to stick on the CD's to make it feel authentic if you really want to. Now everyone is happy.

I still think its their worst but doesnt deserve the slating its recieved. I mean some people say they've totally abandoned their style which I think is fucking bullshit. The bottom line is I prefer the more intricate stylings of SW and HB but at the end of the day heavy riffs catchy choruses and insane drumming with absolute fuckin immense keyboard melodies is what children of bodom still have going for them and that in my book, still makes great heavy metal.

I thought that this had been discussed like a 1000 times already, but sure, I can give you some examples; first and foremost the neo-classical influences, that together with the stunning melodies were what got me hooked and AYDY? miss out on both these things. I also think that the vocals have become worse (or should I say more boring and unoriginal), I acually think that Alexi sounded best on the Inearthed demos. An other thing is the keyboard sounds wich has turned to shit lately. They sound like a frigging nintendo game nowadays and that plain sucks.

And yeah, that sentence with "writing music like he used to do" was badly formulated, I see that now, but I still prefer bands that don't change and write good music over them who change to the worse. Note that I didn't say that progression is a bad thing, it's good as long as it's done in a way I happen to like .
