digital death back in 1998. The page has long since died.
Ohhhh yeah yeah the song was Lake Bodom
Silent Night Bodom Night! I really liked In Flames and Arch Enemy at the time and a friend suggested I check them out since he knew I liked melodic/shreddy stuff...needless to say I was amazed!
Heard of Children of Bodom first in School around 2005 or 2006. Not sure what the first song heard is but really enjoyable am remembering is with 'Kissing the Shadows'.
The first one was Angels Don't Kill, and it's still my favorite. My classmate gave me a DVD with a lot of music burned on it, like Soulfly, Korn, Linkin Park etc. And one folder was really different from others. I guess it was my first experience with heavier genres of metal, so COB and specifically Hate Crew Deathroll introduced me to MDM. Who knows where I would've been if not that disc lol
First song was Warheart back in July '99.
At this time I was totaly into HIM, Metallica, Manowar, Hammerfall, Sonata Arctica and all the other similar bands. I can't remember exactly where I heard Warheart but I know that my first reaction was: Wtf? That song sounds like shit. Why is there no structure? No real verse, no chorus? What is this? I totaly hated that song until I heard the solo.
I never ever heard something like this before. That melody, that speed, the first time I heard a 6-string sweep appregio in my live...
From this moment my musical taste changed, my opinion about Kirk Hammet changed from "guitar god" into "novice" and I barely listened to any of the bands I listened before again (except HIM).
The same day I downloaded Hatebreeder from Napster, 'Lycosed' (only a few of you will remember) everything about Alexi Laiho and Children of Bodom and started playing (acoustic) guitar.
Oh yeah, good topic. For me that Was Kissing the shadows. wow i remember that song blowed my mind and then i became a huge COB fan.
that time i was in Cradle of filth, metallica, linkin park, evanesence, slipknot, iron maiden.
