    A88 Bottled - really not the worst IF song ever.

    Actually I think DT needs a proper guitar player/songwriter to give the music some edge again.

    I really enjoy all the electronica, atmosphere, changing time signatures and all, but sometimes their music just lacks real punch.

    I think Construct is a good album, Atoma even better... But DD had some really good energetic riffing. And I miss that.

    I didn't realise Children of Bodom had disbanded. Alexi and Daniel Freyberg are continuing under the name "Bodom After Midnight".

    Yeah, pretty clear that Alexi was the problem in that scenario. The other members own the Children of Bodom name, all quit at the same time and basically hung Alexi out to dry. I expect a reunion show in 2-3 years when things don't work out for any of them. :D

    Lol yeah, I was surprised to read that as Alexi is obviously a founder member of the band and the main songwriter. He done fucked up somehow to end up in a situation where he didn't own the band name.

    I cannot get into DT mostly because of Stanne's voice. I find him to be a boring singer.

    As for Bosom, there's a lot of info at blabbermouth. But I was yet surprised that he was not the owner of the name. Still, he admitted to be the main problem on the band. So that's good.

    I think he's fine up until Character, then he gets more and more robotic as time goes on. His growls also sound pretty bad live post-2002. DT live videos from 2004 onwards are borderline unwatchable to me due to Stanne's growls. They just sound really bad to me - although I don't think it's as noticeable when you're in the crowd, as I remember really enjoying DT when I saw them live in 2007.

    But anyway, his vocals in studio are still better than 90% of extreme bands people seem to love. I don't think he's any worse than Insomnium or Amon Amorth vocalists, for example.

    He's worse than insomnium's. Even if they were equally bath, Insomnium still has those amazing melodies that DT lacks. I see DT mostly as a baroque influenced band. While Insomnium has all those folk elements that I loved in IF and also a lot of old IF melodeath.

    As for Amon Amarth, I cannot compare. And I mean that there's actually a song from Insomnium with Stanne as a guest.

    Yeah, Weather the Storm. It's the only Insomnium song I like :D DT have some great melodies pre-WATV. In the last decade not so much.

    Yeah, Stanne's vocals live are pretty meh. But like DE said, when I've actually been in the crowd at one of their shows, it's fine. It's on recordings that it bothers me. Either way, I give him a pass because I like DT so much.
