    There are 2400 people in Finland with the surname Latvala so probably not, but it's still possible of course.

    I like the melody. Reminds me more of Wintersun than COB, but that might be because you mentioned Teemu :D

    dont know if anyone heard these guys before. a bit happier than COB but they have great melodies, guitar harmonies, good solos, atmosphere etc
    on paper, many of you should like it but who knows. skip the first song though i think thats the weakest.

    I did a quick listen but I'm not a big fan of this kind of music. They are talented, but they sound like any other band in this genre. After rushing through all of those songs it feels like I've heard most of those songs anywhere before.

    The Chariot sounds cool though

    arcane, you got any good recommendations? your picky just like me haha. there arent a lot of bands that i really like unfortunately. also, i know what you mean about them kind of sounding like other bands, its true, but these guys are better. you gotta listen to the whole songs though. they add a lot of little things throughout the songs that give it a lot of extra color etc maybe give it another go.
    Many times i dont like things on the first listen. in fact even some bodom albums i had to spin a bunch of times before i fell in love but once i did it was love for life.


    also i really like these guys:

    Nah, not really. Besides Bodom, I mostly listen to 80s/90s rock and metal

    or bands like The black dahlia murder, black label society, Arsis, Gojira, Symphony X. I also like the good old 90s dance and of course charts from 70s-90s.

    Here are some of my spotify playlists if you're interested.

    Metal:

    Instrumental Stuff:

    Acoustic rock stuff
    https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5CbKXlSmvMSLZwAoxxjFaB?si=qE4BKYxeQb2AQeCPP2bV3w

    Cool stuff from the past
    https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7aR0qErgFyFEZfJwgzG3WK?si=E2t9zqKLQuaJq1KuH-tJlw

    80s/90s rockm/metal
    https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5NBGKguaGUuO2o1MzCaGOM?si=8Q8W4CpESHu1uhMzEGezFg

    2000s rock/metal
    https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2je46xvwN5mC1rbEctSZ1B?si=l-T-xKKDSVKFXNHyX5Jjmg

    So all in all its mostly older stuff.

    And, and of course - I'm a big fan of movie/game scores

    @akamouzis I've just very recently discovered Avatar and I am absolutely in love with everything they did since Black Waltz. Honestly, one of the most underrated band I know, and definitely something that had been missing from my life. I would put them on the same level as CoB for me in term of how much I like them. And that's the only band with Dethklok that ever got there.
    My guitar has been restrung and downtuned to B Standard just so that I could play some Avatar songs.

    My favorite is probably this one:



    Though I am having a blast playing this one as well. Quite technical for me:

    Never tried Necrophagist, Spawn of possession, Gorod... ?
    Those might be the best three bands amongst the masters of melody, harmony, groove and riffing I know and digged. More brutal/tech death than bodom which is on the rock side, but some of the best compositions I know.

    Hard to pick one album to start for each, but if you're interested, maybe Epitaph (necrophagist), Noctambulant or Incurso (Spawn of possession) and A Maze of recycled Creeds (Gorod).

    So there is/was (Don't know if they exist anymore) this Chinese band named "Fearless". They have this one song where the chorus is so Bodom I could have sworn it was them. The song is called "Darkness Swallowed" and is found at 15:52
    These guys have quickly become a little favourite of mine despite having only a single (short) album.

    Reaper is definitely present here. I think these vocals add a bit of a blackened edge to it which I enjoy personally. Granted, I can certainly see why they are not all that attractive :p
