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.
