Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I wish they would actually use this as the cover.
I heard rumors that they experimented with multiple sound world, turned out to be quite great. Here is the new single(the name actually is "the Reaper Back Again" but the uploader didnt wanted to spoil the new album).
The drums are indeed aggressive, and the vocal is back to the FTR level! Its quite perverted and alien-ish especially the duck-goose metaphor connected with the reaper, like a materialization of the Death in a mortal body.
I can tell you're from Australia. When it's minus 4 celcius, shit should be frozen.
I think hes from Alaska i can see the artistic influences what he used in the picture!
Yeah I know a lake won't freeze over at minus 1, but at minus 4 there should be indications of winter such as snow. Ok the cover art is mostly white, well fuck this I don't really mind.
This. Exactly this, both on RRF and on Henkka's interview, it's about time I'd guess.
OMG WHY RED CABLE WITH BLUE CABLE IT'S FTR AND SOUNDS SO MUCH BETTER!!!!!
Scythes Of Bodom the blog was if I remember correctly started by Stella as before or close to the time when SOB the page went down, but she'll correct me on that. Scythes Of Bodom used to be an absolutely amazing COB fansite, but it's owner/creator/main drive got tired of it sort of and stopped it, and that includes server/page down, all content unavailable anymore, which is a shame because it really was like a COB bible, don't expect to find anything if it wasn't there. Plus they had great interviews with the band members and a ton of cool stuff, which leads me to...
...I don't think it's on the band really, since the force driving SOB was Zarok, who put a lot of effort into it. The band just agreed to help by granting him his requests for interviews, but the rest was hard work by Zarok, Lari and the other contributors, which ultimately was the reason it was taken down: they didn't want to/couldn't put the effort anymore. Great loss though, most insightful interviews Alexi gave were their yearly interviews, and that info ticker we got for BD was pretty cool.
Not true, really. He held the keys to the website, tho. Don't give the credit to a German guy when it really belongs to a Finnish guy. And it was him who just bored of the whole thing and 'disappeared'. I understand him tho, since we had similar taste about Bodom. But who needs SOB when there's me, and who gives a fuck about a web site that died like five years ago? I've put up like five thousand posts since then which is more than SOB ever had. Is it like SOB is the only source with legit views and info? Nah bra. They have Sleeper as contact now to post every news, and there's not even many active members anymore. I'm sure anyone could get interesting info from the band but the people who have the connections don't have the creativity or interest to ask, and the band itself doesn't care to reveal things anymore, so it's all boiled down to two things: Joonas speculation and Sleeper posting news linked by the band, and of course the guitar covers. There's really nothing else, all we can do is wait for official news. I'm really interested to find out what kind of an album they've come up with after such secrecy.
How about you get off your high horse at first.
I respect your point of view and your opinions (allthough they are not well underpinned) but
is a bit much, even for you.
On the contrary, I have to agree with Joonas on the Blooddrunk matter though.
RRF is well produced and the tracks are well written with much detail to the riffs and an overall fitting sound for the tracks but I just can't listen to most of it (Only Roundtrip, SK and RRF find a rare spin in the CD Player). BD definitely has a 'bad' guitar tone (I love it, it fits the record perfect) and has songs which I don't like too (Smile, DWEDFN) but it has this really dark and gloomy atmosphere on some songs which I miss in RRF.
Its just like that with Slayers Hell Awaits, most of the people I know hate the sound, I think, it is perfect for the record as it takes a much darker approach than anything they have released before/after that (I'm not comparing BD and Hell Awaits here so don't even try to sue me here )
We already knew that... He actually said the songs are great, but where is the interview?
Jaska commenting on the new album in reply to a question on fb today:
"Jaska, so we can say new album is gonna sound like kinda hatebreeder,follow the reaper? You said it sounds blackish in one of the photos.
Jaska Raatikainen: yes. it goes back in a way"
Ok, sounds good, albeit expected. Now remember: the most important thing isn't the sound or the technical properties, it's the overall affection of the music, altough I prefer sound world over technicality any day.
"It goes back in a way" means its gonna be real old school Bodom from when we did our 2nd album, in fact its as best and close to we could get to old times Bodom....
lol just teasing u Finnish guys, Joonas
Well I think we gonna hear some nice guitar solos from Alexi
I had a dream about Jaska this night(LOL). We were talking about the music and stuff then I asked him about the interview. He said "I don't know what are the guys doing maybe they are too busy in the studio, or just forgot about it". So he had no fking clue...
The beard on Alexi looks awesome, but the background music was from the cover song, sadly.
This isnt Alexi's ESP. Look like ST Shape?
