    Speaking of singers, Rainer Nygård from Diablo had an absolutely epic voice on their first two albums.



    He's since switched to a less gritty, more melodic style (The instrumentals have become more melodic too for that matter). It's still good and pretty unique too I think, but I liked the more brutal tone from the first two albums.

    EDIT: How on earth did I end up linking the lyrics to the song, not the song itself? :D

    Not fan of the vocals in Mors Principum Est, but really enjoying the music.

    As for Diablo (horrible band name choice when it comes to internet referencing by the way...), I like the screams, but the clean voice is horrible. Anyway, this voice reminds me a lot of Nine's singer.

    Not exactly the same kind of music, but still fairly enjoyable.

    Heh, it's funny how picky people, me included, can be when it comes to vocals, even screaming / growling vocals :D I, for example, initially disliked Wintersun due to Jari Mäenpää's voice, yet now it's one of my favorite bands. Similarly I can hear the similarity between the singers of Diablo and Nine, but for some reason I'm not a huge fan of the tone Nine's singer has, despite Diablo's singer being one of my favorite screamers / growlers ever.

    To get back on topic, here's a relatively unknown band that sounds a bit like COB IMO (They're disbanded unfortunately):

    To be honest: There is NO band on this planet which sounds like Bodom. Even Sinergy doesn't sound like Bodom at all.

    But there are tons of bands which sounds like Norther, Naildown, Tracedawn, Imperanon, Kalmah, Euphoreon, etc. I don't know who came up with the idea that any of those bands would sound like Bodom...

    Ask yourself when you listen to all those bands mentioned on the last 8 pages (btw: Slender - the 8 pages - awesome game): could that be a Bodom song? Would Alexi write such riffs?

    ^I don’t play much but I played a Slenderman game over a friend’s place a few years back and it gave very successful fright moments, I kept shouting out of shock when that little pale humanoid would surprise me from behind running towards me. The game had a few creative moments / environments. I listen to creepypastas since 2015 although it’s hard to find stories by credible individuals anymore now that it’s full of lame stories about guys with videogames and girls with ugly stalkers since that’s all life experience the new generations has, which is sad... it’s full of stories now that make every fundamental mistake in horror writing, full of cliches, no psychology etc.
