    I like Alexi's crispy tone and top playing in this abhorrence of a song. All this makes me think is if someone deserves a tribute album with people covering each of his songs, it's Alexi. But COB covers are worse than the original 90-99% of the time, so that's maybe why no-one covers them. Sad thing that great metal bands stopped existing just when the Alexi-worshipping generation started to exist. You have all these worshipped guitarists and song makers lifted to a divine status and acknowledged because they're dead... The future of music is all about techno and death metal covers of COB.

    It was already postet in the COB miscellaneous thread ;)

    You reached a new level of writing bullshit. Alexi deserves a tribute album? o_O Why?! (Don't answer).
    90-99% of COB covers are worse than the original?!? Wtf? I like more than half of them more than the original songs.
    Great metal bands stopped existing?!? What about Sodom, Stratovarios, Metallica, W.A.S.P., Symphony X, Iron Maiden, Arch Enemy, Eternal Tears Of Sorrow, Gamma Ray, Hammerfall, Graveworm, Judas Priest,Stone,Arsis, Iced Earth, Soulfly, Testament, Emperor, Nevermore, Black Sabbath, etc.
    Future of music is techno and COB covers?!? o_Oo_Oo_O

    It's called EDM you ignorant fuck. Techno stopped existing after 90's where you've been apparently stuck last fifteen years.

    I don't see new quality metal bands rising, really. So many bands that are not shocking and just try to be like the others. Some awake promise, but only have one good song... Since it's so hard to triumph and get paid as a metal musician these days, no sane young man will dedicate his life to a band anymore, let alone five guys. This fact, together with the fact that great artists come in small numbers, it's so unlikely to have bands like Bodom, In Flames, Hypocrisy anymore, therefore the future of great music could be in computer music, where one genius can handle the whole project and still study or work.

    Maybe you should listen to other (Melo)Death-Metal Bands like Skyfire:


    Norther:


    Disarmonia Mundi:


    The Stranded:


    instead only to hype COB.
    Like Arcane said there are tons of other great Bands.

    Those are all wannabe-COB, who don't even deserve to waste vinyl.

    Anyways I think Alexi did a good job and I think the cover is decent, I love Chuck but I do not think his voice is well suited to cover Ozzy

    Hahahaha - Joonas give the fuck up. Swedish melodic death metal > Finnish melodic death metal. Deal with it.

    I don't care where the metal comes from, nor do I think there's anything special about Finland except the nature. I have nothing against Sweden (except vikings turning into fairies) and I love Hypocrisy, In Flames, Amon Amarth (if they come from Sweden) and probably others I forget to mention. Finland only has Bodom and Swallow the Sun now pretty much, since 69 Eyes, HIM, Moonsorrow are past their time, and many artists only had one good album... Then there's the case of Norther and Kalmah, which were promising bands, who failed because they didn't consider everything they put out.

    ^+1, Maybe I'm a retard, but I really think the vocals and lyrics in this song are annoying. Alexi has some great crispy sound and atmospheric bends going on. Heaps better playing than the original. Some day people will wake up and even in junior high music classes they teach Bodom. Everybody knows fucking Nothing Else Matters but no-one knows Everytime I Die. Fucking stupid.

    Loved Alexi's guitar playing on this cover. Just like I was hoping......very true to the original, but with his style on it. Would I say it's better than the original? No. But it is prob. the best cover of this song I have heard. Vocals were meh.

    Tears on Tape by HIM is still far more interesting that anything Bodom has done in last 7 years.

    Joonas, you are literally the only person who can manage to perpetually make yourself seem more fucking retarded with each sentence you write. Let's begin.

    Welp, we're off to a pretty good fucking start here. You're definitely confirmed as autistic as fuck for this statement.


    ... And just like that, trumped yourself instantly. Right now you're sitting at Forest Gump status. But wait, there's more!

    Nevermind that CoB's best material can barely raise a torch to half of the metal bands who have popped up in the last few years. I'm not even going to debate this with you because you're 1-dimensional as fuck and I could go without reading an "elaborate" Joonas post that just boils down to the word "atmosphere"

    And here we are, 3 statements in and I'm a firm believer that trained monkeys, or any zoo animal and it's fecal matter are more competent than you.

    The irony. You're the biggest Alexi fanboy in the world but you can't seem to realize that half of the music you jerk off to daily wouldn't even be a thing if Randy Rhodes wasn't around. There weren't many players of his caliber in that era, and for you to downplay his importance just cements things myself and everyone else has already said about you: That you're a fucking mongoloid.

    Yep, because clearly CoB has a big enough fan base to last another 3 - 4 years at best. They've managed to descend to a level below "Hot Topic" music, which is really saying something. The group they're trying to appeal to could give two fucks about them because they're still too busy fangirling over Bring Me The Horizon and the like.


    TL;DR, Kill yourself or get a fucking life. No one here wants to hear your stupid fucking rants.

    ^Or you could've just said "Sorry, I'm a frustrated , 1-dimentional human being, and I hate COB." Everyone's just talking about themselves when loathing on another person. Wise people are aware of this, that's why it's best to let matters argue as long as possible. Hate is to be used wisely. And it makes no sense you're here with your anti-COB opinions.
