    Hello guys I was wondering for a while why we love COB, then i decided to make a study of the elements that describe COB music
    This study is based on several weighted criteria such as:
    -orchestral hits
    -Leading melodies intros
    -keys / guitars dualities
    -various scales exchange
    -keys / dual guitars solos
    -black voice
    -Crystal / blue keyboard sound
    -movies spoken words
    -song titles
    -mysterious/weird/bodom atmosphere
    -keyboard dominance
    -great keyboard solos
    -great guitar solos
    -memorable chorus
    -extreme power riffing
    -Neo classical influences
    -progressive song structure
    -musicality
    -technicality
    -Recording quality

    then i made a classification of the songs and this is the ranking of all bodom songs:
    check this link http://hpics.li/fdfe63e

    1 bodom after midnight
    2 Follow the reaper
    3 kissing the shadows
    4 beach terror
    5 lake bodom
    6 children of bodom
    7 ugly
    8 chokehold
    9 lil blood
    10 children of decadence
    11 tast of my scyth
    12 shovel KO
    13 Living Dead beat
    14 mask of sanity
    15 needled
    16 Downfall
    17 Hatebreed
    18 you better off dead
    19 hate me!
    20 cry of the nihilist
    21 TCHB
    22 everytime i die
    23 angels
    24 bastards
    25 we re not gonna fall
    26 Not my Funeral
    27 Deadnight warrior
    28 roundtrip to hell and back

    30 touch like angel of dead

    35 Wrath within
    36 blooddrunk
    37 punch me i bleed
    38 northern
    39 red light in my eyes II
    40 RRF
    41 tie my rope
    42 HALO of Blood
    43 in your face
    44 toward dead end
    45 next in line
    46 one day you will cry
    47 if you want peace …
    48 the nail
    49 black widow
    50 AYDY?
    51 HCDR
    52 lobodomy
    53 smile pretty to the devil
    54 WIWI?
    55 done with evth
    56 northpole
    57 Hellhound on my trails
    58 red light in my eyes I
    59 in the shadows
    60 pussyfoot miss suicide
    61 banned from heaven
    62 roadkill morning


    and here's the best track from each album according to the analysis :
    SW lake bodom
    HB children of bodom
    FTR bodom after midnight
    HCDR bodom beach terror
    AYDY living dead beat
    BD blooddrunk
    RRF ugly
    HOB Halo of blood (so far)

    Was that logic? fair?

    Also albums ranking (except halo of blood):
    1 - Follow The Reaper (81%)
    2 - Hatecrew Deatroll (73%)
    3 - Hatebreeder (68%)
    4 - Are you dead yet? (64%)

    6 - Something wild (60%)
    7 - Blooddrunk (48%)

    It's hard to make an order of preference for the songs, but the idea is interesting to count by percentage from the song list which album is best...

    i didn't make any order of preference manually. i have filled the blanks in my excel file.
    eg : i took a song and check if its contains element i mentienned above, if its contains an element from the list i put 1, if not i left it blank, except for "recording quality" critarias : (7 for hcdr; 6 for RRF; 5 for FTR; 4 for AYDY; 3 for HB; 2 for BD; 1 for SW; 7 for HOB (so far) )
    then mark is calculated automatically for each song and so for each album (according of the average note for all songs of the album)

    check this link to see how : http://hpics.li/9d18278

    mark are calculated this way :
    Hate me mark = [(5*1)+(7*1)+(4*1)+(3*1)+(7*1)+(3*1)+(8*1)+(1*1)+(5*1)+(6*1)+(7*1)+(5*1)+(5*1)+(6*1)+(1*5)]*100/104 = 74%
    and so for all songs.

    I love science, but here it doesn't work for me personally. Ugly is a good song, but nowhere near the top 15. And a song like Banned from Heaven would be a lot higher in my book.
    I do love seeing that long list of songs and how I love at least 80% of them, and really like the other 20%.

    This list is not about best or worst song. this is about the most representative song of bodom. the higher the song is, the more it countains bodom elements that everybody love.
    and this is somehow the preference order since i couldnt order the 63 songs manually, that helped me a lot.

    Maybe you want to color code it for each album. That way you get a quick and clear view of how each album stands within the given criteria.

    ^this! You could also add some kind of weighting factor for each(if possible) criteria that takes into account of how often the presence of each criteria is if it's not already done and renormalize.

    Interesting work. If you had a the blank file with the formulas it would be interesting to plug in numbers and see what everyone else comes up with. But something isn't right if Banned From Heaven ends up as COB's second worst song.

    What is "Cristal/blue keyboard sound"? What are you looking for in the song titles? Why does a memorable chorus weigh so much? It's not like we're dealing with pop music. Keyboard dominance, is that a good thing? Not in my view.

    I think numbers are already filled as they much the existence of the criteria on the song.
    the thing that could make a difference between fans is the weight of criteria. the blank file are atached on the excell file (check sheet 1)

    Cristal/blue keyboard sound : that downfall intro sound
    Keyboard dominance and memorable chorus. it depends. everybody should weight criteria in his own way.
