So you would recommend going to a CoF concert?
I guess so, not sure what's their current shape but I see them at Wacken this year. Gonna tell you afterwards if I would still recommend it but the two shows in 2015 were great!
Oh well; this is picking my curiosity. I might give it a try someday.
Why do you think they might suck live ?
Because of all the videos I've seen online. Dani's screams on the albums are just fantastic, but he really struggles to reproduce them live. The highs sound like someone stepped on Donald Duck's balls, the lows are just a parody of growling, and the whispers are inaudible.
But if he actually manages to sing like he does on the album, then it could be worth trying.
New video on the Facebook and Alexi looks much better!
Hope he got some nutritional and mental help.
But why is he wearing a zipper then ? My first thought was to hide his arms but his face looks healthy so I will wait for live videos on sunday
“Why is he wearing a zipper?”
lmao you guys are getting overboard with this.
He does look way better tho which is great
he looks significantly better in the vid then when i saw him in person in april. so thats good.
Saw the most recent live pics from a festival was it Fortarock or something, he looks a lot healthier than he did in march! Can't wait for the finnish festival dates I need to hear the new songs live even though its probably mostly gonna be the usual hate me and in your face but I hope they play Platitudes
And what was said about COF earlier I kinda have the same feeling. I love some of their albums but the live footage I've seen has been kinda shitty so I've never gone to see them even though there has been a couple chances. A friend of mine is a fan of COF and he has gone to see them twice but both times he left before the band finished bc it wasn't good. But I still kinda feel bad that I'm missing their set in nummirock this year.
Actually I was kinda nervous about bodom too at first because I'd seen some live vids that weren't good and the yeayea fuck yeaa fuckin awesomee fucckkk speaks between songs sounded kinda cringy to me at first lol. But I'm used to it now it wouldn't be bodom without it
F-bombs are not what I would change about their show... I have seen COB live once only, and sound quality was very bad (worse than ensiferum playing before them) and there was really no energy on stage. I mean alexi didn't even sweat I think, and that's fine I guess but I prefer the type of live performance when a band is tired afterwards. I dunno, seems more real to me.
I was wondering if the band name "children of bodom" sounds cool to you (native english)? Band names like Bodom, In Flames, Iced Earth, The Prodigy or any other of the million bands with an english name sound cool in some way for me - as long as I don't translate them into german.
In Flames is probably one of the cooles name for a band ever - even in german (in Flammen) but
Kinder von Bodom? Nope.
Same goes for lyrics. In english they sound cool, as long as I don't translate them.
Bodomin Lapset certainly sounds dumb in Finnish Tulessa (In Flames) is actually kinda decent. Taking Finnish band names and translating them to English results in some ridiculous ones too: Kotiteollisuus = Home Industry (Sounds pretty good in Finnish, but Home Industry? Not exactly cool )
The video recorded maybe some months ago.
Somehow Alexi was completely calm, emotionless and motionless while having lost weight massively. Supposedly he’s better now. I’d be really curious to know what was going on.
Wow there... What was that solo?! Like, seriously, I'm a mediocre guitarist and I can improvise/play better than that... I haven't been following with his current state, but I do hope he's doing better now, because what he's showing us on this video is nowhere close to what we've come to expect from such a legend.
Nah, Children of Bodom doesn't sound cool at all. The word "children" ruins it, and "Bodom" looks and sounds a bit too much like "bottom." It sure is a unique name though.
This event was April 9
Most recent concert, final song. He can sing again, but can't growl. If, that's IF he's recovering from whatever, it'll take a while for him to regain muscle mass.
