    His reasons for letting that melodic Yngwieish stuff go was that other bands did that a bit later too.
    But that's a total childish reason, I thought he doesn't gave any "flying fucks".
    1. There is no band on planet earth in existance that is able to do things like early Bodom,
    that's why they are so special.
    2. He's getting more and more generic and is ripping of bands like Lamb of God.
    So his reasons for letting that melodic stuff go is even more stupid.

    I guess the fucking drugs and alcohol destroyed his brain.

    You can say what you want but music-wise compared to earlier records, IWC is their worst
    album ever, even worse than RRF. RRF was just that Skater/Glam thing which he had to do once,
    I expected this record, but IWC is nothing less then a really bad try to get those scene emo kiddies
    and those flesh plugged basecap idiots in his fan base. And do you know why? Those hipsters are easier
    to exchange than "real" fans. he doesn't want to get critics because those kiddies take everything they get.
    The next record, if there will be one, is probably full of autotune vocals and Alexi hast some fleshplugs and short hair
    then.

    And in his free time he tries to rip off Nicki Sixx.

    That could happen! IWC is by far their worst album. CoB used to be different and as you say not alot of bands could do music that early Bodom did. I don't get how anyone could want to go away from that and start making ''sterile-americanized-clinicly-dead-metal'', the music on IWC is emotionless. When hearing the new music it's hard to believe it's the same band that created three masterpieces with SW, HB and FTR.

    Either way, CoB isn't the only band out there thankfully. But equally there isn't a band as special and unique as early CoB.

    Courtesy of random utube posters, the song sounds good and moreover - it sounds like an actual COB song at 1.25x speed (available as an option for html5 player)

    Tired of those sucky Bodom videos. Why they let the same person do them when she clearly has no mature creativity?

    Couldn't find the Morrigan fast version, but some Bodom tracks sound nice sped up...



    With Blooddrunk they were already fading away compared to their masterpieces (in my opinion their downfall started with HCDR which must've been a really disappointing change of style) but Blooddrunk still had passion, it's really on a different level compared to the three albums that came since.

    Many songs sound good when sped up. Adds to the energy. They just often become impossible to play :D

    SKO at double speed would be fucking impossible.

    BBT was cool when they played it faster (respect to Alexi to nail the bridge in a higher tempo!). AYDY is also a song which sounds better when played a bit faster.

    Children of Decadence would be pretty insane sped up, but they don't even play that shit live anymore and every live video of it i've found is pretty bad.

    Allow me to laugh, but some Oulu newspaper states that IWC is a return to the band's roots. :lol: :lol: :lol: I'm sorry but they don't deserve this kind of credit. Maybe if it means when they were 4 year old smashing their lego boxes and screaming at their friend for stealing their candy. I really dislike this album and it was a step in the worst direction possible.

    I've read several glowing reviews recently that don't make much sense (HOB was a departure-IWC a return to form, etc), but I guess lots of people are liking the new album.

    Every album since Blooddrunk has been marketed as "return to the roots" because it's sexy to say that. This is as far from the early albums as it can get. Maybe it gets praised, but by whom. Always remember to be critical of the sources.

    Halo Of Blood was a return to their roots though- there were several parts that felt very Follow the Reaper-ish.

    This. I don't know why people claim that. If there's an album similar to their earlier albums, then it's RRF. But HOB is still a great one!

    RRF was nowhere near similar to the early albums. It was also terrible.

    Coincidence?

    Matter of opinion... Actually, there's only one song from the last 4 albums which has the vibe of an earlier song and that is Suicide Bomber.
