Yeah, I think so, at least one song with a "real" music video, maybe in mid september.
I'm not expecting it to sound similar to the other albums.....I was just expecting it to at least be good or tolerable and so far it is not. I am hoping once I can listen to the whole album my views will change.
This is the first CoB album I have not pre-ordered since I got into them when HCDR came out.
First album since 2001 I won't buy before it is dirt cheap, unless something drasticly changes! There still might be two-three brilliant songs on the album, but right now it seems they altered their style too much... I listen to bodom because of melodies, if the melodies are too simplistic or no existant, I skip the song. If I skip all the songs for that reason the album is not worth listening to. Catchy you say? No just bland and booring.
man im so pumped to hear 'i hurt'. to me it already sounds better than at least half of the songs on hob
I hurt sounds like it was made for simple people. "kicks into the heavy stuff" - if that's the chorus, fuck that shit. Dear fucking god, even IWC sounds better. My Bodom has potential. Why did I listen to this shit?
i don't see any problem with the chorus. it's catchy and a good headbanging riff. all the other parts sound fantastic as well.
Umm, it's not the chorus. I Hurt is supposed to have a memorable melodic chorus.
Which one has the melody that's in the end of the Morrigan video, because that's the best part of the new album so far, imo.
Seems like Alexi is happiest when he is in USA...
Sure cos the interviewer is likeable and speaks English natively and doesn't ask stupid questions. And America is big country.
Yeah...but seems like Europe and it's music doesn't interest him anymore, he only wants to be big in the States...in European interviews he seemed bored as fuck.
They stated in the Q&A video that there is a music video in post-production right now. So probably one more song.
Curious point: the Morrigan sample (chorus) is horrible too, happens to be the worst part of the song, maybe this gives hope. Anyway, I'm mostly interested to hear songs 4, 5, 8, 9, 10. From everything I've read and heard I suspect 10 is the best song.
What, you've already heard I Hurt in its entirety?
Right after this Everytime I Die started playing and oh my god the difference. Alexi is living in serious denial if he doesn't even consider the old great songs as hits. But I have a theory. When he seemed to heal from depression around 2002, their music changed drastically. I think he took meds, and mood medication can kill your creativity. I'm just saddened, I wish the best of success for the guy, but it's like he got hijacked by an alien bug that went up thru the nose. How does one go from writing Follow the Reaper to writing IWC? Maybe it's just a matter of personal taste, and of course it's hard to satisfy fans that always expect a cult piece.
To be fair sleep is very important. Alexi's forced into ridiculously tight schedules as the record label handles art as business. When you're tired, doing shit past midnight (like myself now), it's not gonna sound as good in the morning as you thought it did at night. At night you can maybe imagine all kinds of atmosphere in a sheer guitar riff, but once your brain is lit up at daytime you realize it's not as epic as you thought.
The good thing about this new record is the fact that songs are quite similar unlike on HOB and RRF which got more diversified styles. That gives the album a specific style, a soundworld and a specific atmosphere.
Also, dominant keyboard (content and volume) saves the lack of melodies IMO.
Huh? What does that video have to do with anything?
We played the "guessing game" with RRF's samples and got burnt, I'm not going there again. The "breakdown" shit sounds bad, but I'll wait till I have the full song, because we also had the end of it on the Morrigan sample and most of us thought "damn that's not bad!", and now this other sample comes out and it sucks, so let's see what happens.
Am i the only one who think the melody of i hurt (in the end of morrigan official track) is similar with Living dead beat main melody?
obviosly it gonna be the main melody of i hurt and might be the intro
