also, maybe he deserves a "san" rather than a "chan"?? Hennka-san
Anyway, I agree COB is mainly all about music, but ..for me the lyrics are really important too. I completly love them!! They are awesome.
"You look down to me to see the scum of the earth to be.
Fuck yeah, that's me, vile and obscene.
Hey, I aint happy about it but at least I don't judge and decree
to be better than another human being."
wow thank you alexi
+1 Thank you for clearing that up for all those disgruntled fans who think AYDY sucks. When I first listened to that album, comparisons to metalcore didn't pop up in my mind at all, and I know metalcore.
^ thanks. I know what metalcore is too and CoB's music has nothing to do with metalcore. First of all music wise it has nothing to do with it - its far very far away from even being close to metalcore and the same applies vocally. alexi has unique vocals.
What a fucking emo dropkick Alexi is when it comes to lyrics.
Yeah, the malmsteen-esque bass line...
Seriously, that man is an inspiration to me! (I play bass, and he and Steve Harris of Iron Maiden are my biggest influences).
...why do you say so?
I don't think COB lyrics are emo...not at all!!
Cob lyrics aren't great, best lyrics are in silent night, but they're no written by alexi
Who cares who wrote them? I don't care if Michael Jackson wrote them, as long as they don't suck.
The lyrics are fuckin awsome but i don't consider it death metal...more like power metal. Lyrics for death would be more deathy, bloody, and stuff like that right? Like Cannibal Corpse or Six Feet Under. My fave song is also IN Your Face..fav verse would be the part where he says "I'll never wait for the pain of death. with a bullet in my gun..." That song is sweet! Alexi is so not an emo!!!!! He's just saying "fuck you! I'll do whatever i want and i don't care what you think"
I agree with you on the lyrics. They do have some lyrics that deal with death, but power metal lyricism is more prominent.
Agreed! They also write a lot about Bodom and stuff like that too so it can't possibly be death metal. I can understand how Alexi sometimes gets writer's block. I bet since he's written about that "fuck you" stuff a lot. There isn't anymore ideas. I can't believe Kim had to write all the lyrics for Silent night, Bodom night. Maybe the lyrics for the new album will be a bit more different.
They seemed more earthly on HCDR and AYDY, as opposed to the more mysterious/epic lyrics on SW-FTR. One can only speculate what the next album will bring.
