    Jeff Waters was supposed to be in the Bananarama cover? I thought he played the first solo of Bodom Blue Moon?

    Man I remember listening to Follow the Reaper for the first time, gathering the first impressions, feels weird now that there ever existed first impressions of such a classic album.

    Here's what I've heard about Jeff, from mr. Laiho himself:
    "(Jeff Waters from Annihilator) ended up playing a couple of solos on one of the cover songs, which is ‘Cruel Summer’ by BANANARAMA; it’ll be funny that’s for sure.” Where and when will that be released? “I’m not sure actually. It was just mixed; it was the last one. It’ll probably be a bonus track on a digipack or vinyl. Or maybe we’ll just put it out on our website. I don’t know yet, but it’ll definitely come out though.”

    Yeah the Bananananananrama cover is not too shabby: the tone definitely is better.

    I began listening to CoB in 2005-06 and the first song I heard was Downfall. Then I believe it was 2007 that I bought my first CoB album which was AYDY which was the only one the store had. I loved that album and still do. But when I finally got hold of Hatebreeder and Follow the Reaper I really understood how unique a band they really are. So for any newcomer discovering them now with their recent albums and then checking out their first albums they are in for a great ride!:kickass:

    I first heard them from a guy in my ice hockey club. Probably played me Tie My Rope. Though it was a big pile of shit back then. A year or two later, Done With Everything, Die For Nothing got put in Guitar Hero 5 and I found it to be a brilliant song apart from the singing. So good in fact that I googled them and found Children of Decadence which is still one of my favorites. I hated the singing at first and actually listened to their 8-bit versions for the first few weeks before starting to listen to the better songs in normal format, eventually getting used to the singing and then starting to like it.

    Same here, I didn't like the vocals at all on Downfall and later their 3 first albums when I bought them and actually prefered the vocals on AYDY. Now it's the complete opposite! But the vocals has always been a minor complaint for me when it comes to CoB, it's all about the music, melodies, solos, atmosphere, etc. And I can't hold it against Alexi, he is too old and his voice has changed to go back to that higher pitched voice he had back in the days.

    First song I heard was Everytime I Die. I was like 7 years old and I saw the music video in Jyrki Countdown and it was pretty damn scary back then. I rediscovered CoB when I was 14 and I had the greatest flashback ever when I saw ETID music video again. I remembered some parts of the video like reaper running around the forest and some blindfolded edgy faggot tied to a hospital bed but I had no clue what band it was. It was pretty cool to find out that it was CoB.

    Yayy, I had started with Redlight Part II. Back in 2004-5, I was a Nightwish fan still think that Tarja's era was the best, and once my brother came home with a Nightwish compilation he got the songs in mp3 and the Redlight was shown as a Nightwish bonus track, and nowhere in the file was mentioned it's a Bodom song. i looked a bit strange when I did my first listen, because it was too agressive for a Nightwish song, but I had always listened to it when the playlist came to there. later on my brother told me that's not NW and he brought home some other Bodom songs, Bed of Razors, Everytime I Die, Sixpounder along with a pair of songs from AYDY and soon we've listened to more and more...

    I started listening to them in late 13 or early 14. I was subscribed to Chris Zoupa on YT who posted some awesome guitar videos/lessons and I was going through them and one was for Silent Night, Bodom Night. I hated all screamed vocals at the time but the song was awesome enough to get me to listen to the whole thing regardless. Eventually I warmed up to similar vocals by listening to some other stuff and then one day in September '14 while playing video games I decided to crank the whole Hatebreeder album and loved it.

    I started listening to them in 2002 a few months before HCDR came out. My banned account, "The Bringer", was very active here and on the OT forum. Banned for stupid shitposts. But I've smartened up.

    I've listened to them almost daily from 2002 till Blooddrunk came out. I listened to the first single and didn't bother with the band again until RRF was announced. Then I was back on the wagon. I haven't been nearly as die hard as 2002-2006 but they are still my go to band because of HB, FtR and (my personal fave) HCDR. I feel there isn't any other metal better than those albums and I've listened to a fuck load of metal over the last 15 years.

    I've also seen them way too many times from when I was living in Finland. I last saw them in Vancouver for their RRF tour with Devin Townsend. Mostly went to see Devin Townsend.

    COB tour with Devin Townsend? That's interesting, they don't have many similarities :lol: Have they ever teamed up with Annihilator for a Canadian tour?

    You're "The Bringer"? Hah! I've occasionally wondered where he disappeared! :D I remember you being quite active when I was new here. Then everyone kind of disappeared after RRF was released and the forum was quiet-ish for a long time. Now it's gotten some life to it though which is nice.

    Oh, and go give your vote in Song Survivor if you haven't already. I'll be updating it again in around 24 hours.

    Between 2002-2005 they toured with Hypocrisy and Dimmu Borgir, toured with Iced Earth and headlined with Trivium and Amon Amarth. I saw those. I don't think they've toured with Annihilator. I haven't followed their NA tours since then besides the one time I saw them in 2011.

    Yep. That's me. I've done my time. There is still that one OT thread of myself photoshopped all over the place on the OT front page. Those were good times. :lol:

    Forums have become a thing of the past with all this social media now. UM used to be rocking 10 years ago. Every forum was populated.
