    Really interesting stuff though it's not exactly COB related apart from the beginning.

    I've had this happen occasionally when I'm singing. It's pretty strange feeling when you're not really doing anything but you're still hitting the right notes at the right time. It kinda feels like being a spectator in your own body.

    :D

    The description might have been slightly misleading, but it really does feel kinda strange when everything just goes right without you putting any effort into it.

    Yea I know I'm supposed to practice singing notes while playing them on bass, but for me it's a mental impossibility to sing (or dance), while I could scream or perform some other physical stuff in front of people, maybe I'm just insecure, or *grim*

    I've never sung in front of an audience either unless I've downed at least six beers beforehand. I rarely sing while playing guitar either. Never got the hang of screaming so I can't even try playing and screaming at the same time. Tried practicing it back when I started listening to Bodom in late 2010, but the only progress I ever made was getting a sore throat so I eventually gave up and learned to sing cleanly instead.

    Few men have a good singing voice, and usually it's for a limited style. As for screaming, I suppose it's about technique, but I have nowhere to practice.

    Well, IYF has one of the most beautiful and touching melodies ever (the chorus guitar), and the riff is devastating. What I love about COB is they make a pretty melody and do something dark with it.

    I really like the instrumental version of IYF from the Alexi EMG video, but somehow the recording loses all the cool riffs in a big messy chaos.

    Btw I found out last week that there's going to be a book about Alexi coming out in April. A 400 page biography written by Petri Silas. I'm really fuckin excited about that. Unfortunately it's gonna be in finnish only but I hope it's gonna be translated.
    I don't really have the time to translate it myself :D

    There's someone in their team with that surname... Yeah, would be about a fucking time for that book. We can only hope there's insightful interesting questions presented to Alexi.

    I was thinking also that this book could reveal maybe his side on the Roope's departure issue? Anyway I think Alexi is a very inspiring guy and I can't fuckin wait. Hope he'll do book signings!

    Hm, could've done better title and artwork for it. I was thinking it could be the reason the album is delayed, if the label would release it with the book, but apparently not.
