    I remember somewhat vividly you giving me shit for saying this exact same thing once... Whatever, I hate you all. Call me when there's some news on the album.

    They were my favorite band for yeaaars. Honestly, I didn't give a shit about music before I started listening to them. I still like them a lot, but I'm a big fan of that style of music in general. =)

    Since this appears to be getting boring.. to sum up the review, the guy who wrote it seemed to have this order of preference for the songs (again, it might necessarily mean absolutely nothing in the end):

    Cry of the Nihilist
    Not My Funeral

    These two he put on top of everything. Cry of the Nihilist he described as: "pure melodic thrash metal with twinklings of sublime keyboard virtuosity and more glorious gallops than you could shake Benjamin Hur’s ranch at" and Not My Funeral as: "fantastic song; the usual swirling of Janne Warman’s keyboard layers the ferorious drum patterns and Alexi’s trademark vocals."

    Shovel Knockout
    Roundtrip to Hell and Back
    Ugly

    I think these he categorized as other good ones. Ugly was described to "open with a chuggy Bodom-esque bass gallop that forms the backbone for the song."

    Relentless Reckless Forever
    Was It Worth It
    Northpole Throwdown

    These I think he didn't especially mention anything specific about so they're probably not the most special...

    Pussyfoot Miss Suicide

    Declared by him as probably the worst.

    By name alone I already agree.
    Pussyfoot Miss Suicide is the worst one and Cry of the Nihilist is the coolest name.

    Of course you want to dedicate the best song titles to the best songs, as long as they fit together, so it's logical. Cry of the Nihilist is the best title together with Roundtrip to Hell and Back, while Not My Funeral, Shovel Knockout and Ugly are pretty cool as well. Rest of the titles just sound like they had to come up with something to call the referably mediocre tracks.

    My favorite titles are Cry of the Nihilist and Not my funeral. According to his opinion they are strongest songs on album too. It's just his opinion. will see.
    And in some point i dont like to read reviews befor hearing album. These reviews in my subconscious will shapes my view on songs :D

    I dunno, maybe you're right, but I can't hear it. Last time you mentioned it, I fired up Blooddrunk and Smile Pretty for the Devil and compared it to FTR, and what I could hear in the latter was a distinct, logical chord progression, while in the former most of what they do is riff one chord while covering it with non-harmonic arpeggios. Maybe it was just a bad choice of songs to compare on my part.

    Also, regardless of which one is "better" (matter of personal taste), the FTR chord progressions might seem more immediately distinct due to them being more simple. Not a bad thing, just different.

    And if you listen closely, or learn them on guitar, Blooddrunk and Smile Pretty (as well as most of the others on the album, and AYDY) rarely riff on just one chord.

    Whether you like the sound/style or not is up to you, with no right or wrong, but it's important to consider those aforementioned factors.

    One thing, i think, is that Alexi is trying to constantly push his guitar playing forward. The albums are pretty much progressively harder to play on guitar (with the exception of Something Wild).

    I just want to see if he continues that nonsense with RRF or has he calmed down a bit and concentrates more on the music...

    Yeah, making good sounding music doesn't have to be difficult to play. Being firstly a guitarist, Alexi is a rarity because he also knows what kind of composions actually rock, it's natural in him. I wouldn't mind them making slightly less advanced/difficult music (especially as I'm not capable of playing the hard stuff) if it granted lots more atmosphere. Or a bit of what they call show-off like Hatebreeder, I don't mind if it sounds that good. To give an extreme example, this one douché told me COB is just simply patterns being played one after another and there's nothing interesting about the music. To each his own opinion. I'd imagine a true composer tries to make a song that both showcases his current playing limit and also his ability to write a catchy song.

    Do we really care about the titles? When I read "Lil Bloodred Riddin' Hood" I was like "WTF is going on here?". It took me one listen to forget about the ridiculous song title. Let's hope same thing happens with those songs and we should be good to go.

    Kind of haha. The Offspring was the first band I liked "by myself", as in not something my dad played in the car on trips, so I have to love them :lol:

    If you don't get what it has to do it's probably because you didn't even read what I wrote. Your reply sure looks like it. You like shitfests, but that belongs to COBOT, so back there you go, I'm not going to ramble and argue with you in here, but it's fun that you perceive my posts as being repetitive and not the constant argument-void "new Bodom sucks and always will" that fills on-topic by people no longer interested on them. Fun that you tell me to get a grip, way to go Joe. Now go claim your interwebz supremacy over me.

    Not so impatient. There is still a long time between now and the official release of a WIWI (February).
    And they are really trying to prevent leaks so you can't use that argument anymore.

    Some news or more samples would be nice.. I'm kinda losing interest without anything new..
    Especially cause this thread is starting to get very boring as well...

    I guess I'll just wait for march and hope to be informed by other people if there is any news..

    Yeah it's possible the album is leaked in 3 weeks. But my guess is they did not send promo CD's this time, only held a couple listening parties. Maybe we'll only hear the album once it's in stores after 10 weeks. My interest grows more and more and 10 weeks feels like nothing anymore. Can't wait to hear what kind of songs those track titles contain.

    ^^In the Soundi-interview Alexi said that this time they've tried to be extra careful so that the album wouldnt leak so early before the releasing date. They try not to fuck up it this time like happened with Blooddrunk.

    I second the whole "I thought WIWI was supposed to be released around new years" statement. Where did you hear it would be february?
