Dude the new lamb of god record has tons of cool solos stop it, they aren't related
Yeah, I stopped really caring about the solos since RRF, they weren't at the same level as before anymore, not even that disappointed there's not one in iHurt. Blooddrunk had some very good solos imo, from HoB - Bodom Blue Moon's second solo sounds like something Alexi would write in 1999, other ones are ok to meh.
Hey, don't forget the Ugly solo. This and the ETID solo are propably the best solos Alexi has ever written for COB.
Hammet is one of the most overrated guitarist I know. IMO his solos are boring. There's nothing melodic in it. Most of them is just guitar wankery...
Yep, SIMC solo is my favorite cover solo.
@ Jolly4Joker: Seems like you're the only one here who likes the new album so far. I've never seen a guy here who put the words I Worship Chaos + amazing in one content.
I actually dig the verse of this song, they have good vocals and the thrash riff has a badass split moment, some nice drum scenes, and I like how the pre-chorus starts after the "solo." Usually their strength is how catchy they start back up after solo. It's also interesting to have chorus instrumentally after intro. The chorus and pre-chorus aren't my favourite, but it's a different style of music.
ffs Joonas start making sense for a change
@Arcane: I don't think I am the only one, I saw one or two comments who seemed as excited as me about this new album. But yeah sure, we're the minority here. But even though we're fewer than the disappointed ones, "together we stand tall, we're not gonna crash, we're not gonna fall"
iHurt intro to me sounds like At the Gates ripoff.
The video's been taken down..
Mine is still there if you want XD
Children of Bodom - iHurt
+ Intro is okay
+ You can hear keyboard, I guess..
- Vocals are horrendous. This sounds awful. Especially the 'Let me go' part. You'd think the producer would say something..
- Drumming sounds dull and distracting, especially during the verses.
- No solo. Worse, no melody.
I definitely will not be seeing them live this autumn. I'm not paying €30 for at the very most 13 songs on the setlist I like (assuming they play 3/4 new songs) when we get this shit, Lamb of God and Sylosis (which are fine but not worth the money and travel time at all). It's sad that it came to this.
pre chorus is fantastic. i fully agree with joonas about the part where it comes in after the 'let me go' bit. this is a good song that would be made great by a juicy melodic solo.
I Hurt is such a filler track. It has this good intro, and that's it. Alexi and the crew literally had no ideas what to do after composing that intro riff, and you can hear it in the song obviously.
It will be a disgrace if they play this live.
The most dissapointing thing for i Hurt is, that there are two excellent parts for a solo. First is at 3:06 - after that bridge I don't understand why there's ANOTHER bridge coming in and no solo. Second part would be after the that whammy bar thing.
If they would skip that part from 3:06 - 3:38 and replace it with an awesome solo, that song would be really good. But NO! American Alexi gives a fuck...
^True, it kinda almost builds up for Alexi to rip open a killer solo, but they go straight back to the bland filler riff.
So far, I Hurt sounded like a disappointment in the Track by track and it has definitely been one, can't even bother to really comment on it, it's just so uninspired outside of the opening riff, but I'm still holding out hope for the tail end of the album, where (according to the track by track) some gold MIGHT be hidden. I do like the covers, but above all Mistress Of Tabboo, I don't particularly like Amorphis', but we'll see.
You mean, american Alexi wants you to "let him go".
The verse riff is really good. Has this SKO feeling. Luckily the sample was the worst part of the song.
0:17 - nuclear explosion and fire winds
0:50 - the hopeless sight of dried up lake Bodom is revealed as smoke fades
1:05 - restless spirits of the burned lake are exposed to daylight
Some News I'll have for you tomorrow. In Germany there is a music mag called "Legacy" which will release a special about COB and Amorphis and it contains a CD
with 3 Amorphis songs(yeah, the Everytime I Die COB cover is in it) and 3 COB Songs. The COB Songs are the new Amorphis cover, a live version of Halo Of Blood and the new track "Suicide Bomber".
Holy shit. They can't contain it no more.
I'm sure the ETID cover is Amorphis' best song ever. Hope they aren't allowed to play it live.
They chose ETID to cover? Nice. But isn't suicide bomber the other song with no guitar solo they mentioned?
Wtf really? It's supposed to be sold here in Austria too, gotta get my hands on that one!
