    Hi,

    I hope this is the right forum and all but I just got Children of Bodom's "Follow the Reaper" CD and I really like it. Well, my question is, what other bands are similar to Children of Bodom that I might like?

    Thank you.

    Kalmah is like them as well as Imperanon. Try some early Nightwish like Oceanborn or Wishmaster.

    Some of Soilwork's early material, like Steelbath Suicide and A Predator's Portrait, sounds somewhat similar to Children Of Bodom at times.

    Although they've moved in a different (i.e. worse) direction lately. I gave Figure Number Five a bad review at www.metal-archives.com .

    Ensiferum. I start to prefer Ensiferum over CoB, actually.

    All the hundreds of bands from Finland that sound exactly like them? Seriously, that shit is multiplying like a boyband explosion or something.

    I hope The Reverend Bizarre gathers them all into a room and crushes them all with the sheer power of relentless DOOOOOOOOOOOOOM (and riffs). :Spin:
