Don't worry, I won't stay for a talk, just dropping my vision about a new COB album for Christmas present. I've indeed figured something new, despite flooding in everything I got before Halo of Blood. I'd like to see short, fast, brutal songs, with an atmospheric tension, building horror-themed synthesizer passage between every song (except before and after a slow song) leading to the vicious climax of the following song. 7 fast killers and 2 slow doomy tracks. The durations could go like so: 1 - 3:10 (quick song) (20 sec horror passage) 2 - 3:10 (quick song) (20 sec horror passage) 3 - 3:10 (quick song) 4 - 5:00 (slow song) 5 - 3:10 (quick song) (20 sec horror passage) 6 - 3:10 (quick song) (20 sec horror passage) 7 - 3:10 (quick song) 8 - 5:00 (slow song) 9 - 3:10 (quick song) Quick songs like Silent Night and Halo of Blood have proven to be very good and no-one thinks of them as being "short". Just concentrate more epicness to shorter amount of time and build tension between songs that escalates in the most menacing Bodom tracks ever. I think this approach would force to make vocals and lyrics more considered, too - having less singing with better vocals and better lyrics would be INSANELY good. It should be the most atmospheric and most demonic album yet. A couple movie speeches could be included among the passages - but only ones that are actually good. The quick songs don't necessarily have to be fast always, as for example Are You Dead Yet is a very dramatic song without being that fast. In this time of metal bands dying out one should be brave and creative to shock the world. Total duration would be 32:30 in this formula. I think it would be an exciting album, and fans would rather hear 20 minutes of epicness than 40 minutes of gray with gems here and there. Naturally creation comes before "molding", but this is what I'd love to see. In my mind the color of soundworld (and artwork) should be either blackish green or violet to psychologically suit this kind of thing. I typed this shit for the band in case they'd be interested in what a long time / dedicated / obsessed fan thinks. That's all, bye.
