this is shit.
Also watch Karl's Betcha can't play this in 00:57.
Lol tense picking arm much?
I'd say Alexi for various reasons. He plays AND sings which has to count as something, I think it is fucking super awesome. I dig Roope's playing and solo in Banned From Heaven but in my opinion Alexi has showed how awesome he is with his solos and riffs. I mean c'mon were are comparing 2 guys here who have significant differences is contribution to our favourite band. Alexi has done more so we have more reason to say Alexi. Alexi is a few years behind Roope anyways so he is doing pretty damn good for his age
As a musician, Alexi. As a sole guitar player, I don't know, you'd have to ask them for analyzis. Both have their own strengths in guitar techniques I guess.
I can't say, I need to hear Roope sing
Roope, awesome and thight rhythm guitarist.
Actually, if you want to look at it that way, Roope was a huge influence for Alexi and many other inspiring guitarists, and indirectly has done 'more' for CoB (which is not everyone's favorite band by the way) and (Finnish) metal all around than Alexi has.
Touche. But how much WILL Alexi inspire guitarists worldwide? Alexi is younger and still has A LOT of stuff to do. In the end he will probably have done more for Metal all together. I love COB, my favourite band. I wonder what Alexi would be like if Roope wasn't around. Either way im still saying Alexi
Good point. I do also think that Alexis influences are much bigger than Roopes nowadays. Look at allt he Alexi wannabes on YouTube or in this forum.
But to answer the question: Both got the same guitar skills but I wouldn't say ALexi or Roope is better but Alexi is a great songwriter and his solos are definitely better than Roopes. So all in all Alexi is definitely better but both got the same guitar skills
Why bother having this thread in the first place?
Both are amazing artists in their own way, but they are not comparable.
That's it. This thread had no point from the start, and resurrecting it when it was already dead was pointless too. Stone rocks, COB rocks, Roope influenced Alexi, Alexi influences many people, they have really similar styles. How do you decide, in a fair way, who's better? You can't.
If Stone would make a new album, would Roope be influenced by Alexi and Stone influenced by Bodom?
And damn you Jose, I was counting on you to continue this pointless argument that has been done already multiple times. I like to follow these threads, good entertainment .
Roope is calm person. So we cant say something exactly about his truly abilities. But i think he is awesome
I think Grandfather must receive more respect than father, because he influenced to father and he is longer in life than father, he have more experience.
Roope also good guy, supports cob for a long time. Also i like his job in last Sinergy album. (shadow island ftw)
They've got chemistry when they are together. Its wrong to compare them. Alexi's solos more Pop (popular, more people can feel it without long listening metal music), Roope's solos more Heavy (brutal), they are good together, and they are equally talanted in their style. Its only depends on your taste
What about me? If Roope would leave cob, i wont listen it anymore. Cob will lose important part.
First part, don't really know, would have to listen to the album first, although with Janne singing I don't think something can sound like Bodom, it's too different from Alexi.
Second part, I'm sorry I'm an Alexi fanboi, but I'm not blind, and you have to be quite biased or use those weak kinda irrational arguments (like "he plays worse but has more feel" or "has done more for the metal world" or "his songs are more famous") to say Alexi is over Roope or the other way round imho. As you say, it's pointless to argue. You can have a favourite, but you can't claim it's the best
About the solo thing... When I listen to the ETID, Warheart and Downfall, TLAOD from Tokyo Warhearts solos from COB; ISOYG, Midnight Madness and Razorblade Salvation from Sinergy; Downright Dominate from Annihilator... seriously... Roopes solo are really good but those solos I've mentioned are definitely in a higher league
Well, they have a pretty similar style, but I think Alexi works more on his solos. This shows specially in live playing, where, like it or not, he's tighter, and I'm not comparing Alexi's work with Roope's small spot on BFH, but Roope all around. Sure he's real tight too, they both are, but even in the albums I feel like Alexi works more on them. E.g. Roope's sometimes have things that it's hard to tell where it's going, like he threw the scale/sweep/whatever in and sounds cool but that he wouldn't remember exactly what he played if you asked him to do it again, while Alexi's don't. I do know that when Stone recorded their albums was another time and that Stone never got the studio time Bodom gets, but you can see that in some Sinergy solos, it's what helps me more to know who is Roope and who is Alexi.
