    Maaan it isn't sarcasm! I am not here to provoke or act stupid, trying to have good chat with everyone here, even the ones I don't understand sometimes haha. Just I started listening to Bodom at the age of 15 and they have been my favorite band since, they will always be. And I had a girl, love of my teenage days, and we both were the most psycho fans...and I am just glad to see someone as excited as I was back in the day and when the times were different...because even I now myself have doubts and don't get excited over music that much anyways, and it's good to see some people are, well...not done yet! It gives me the hope back as well...so cheers!!!

    Guys, the track Hexed is the real deal. I can't believe my ears. I have never said this about any modern COB, but this one can belong on Follow the Reaper album. It's carried by leads, its high energy, its got a neoclassical twist, the chorus is so catchy, my god I can't believe my ears. It's got a mystical outro, too (which is kinda weird but whatever).

    Fucking GREAT SONG!!!!!!!!!!!

    Okay so for me the weakest tracks are:
    Platitudes
    UGAC
    This Road
    Glass Houses
    Hecate's Nightmare

    The last two actually start really well and the irony is these two I was expecting the most. But they both kind of feel unfinished towards the end.

    Relapse is a pretty cool song. It's simple, but it's effective. It's got a good solo that really serves the song well. The main melody is a bit over done, but it doesn't feel that way. It's got a section that sounds "desperate" like Done With Every Die For Nothing. Very solid modern COB.

    First impressions:

    This Road - Still a great track
    Under Grass and Clover - Still pretty good, a bit repetitive
    Glass Houses - Very good
    Hecate's Nightmare - Great, better than the slow songs off the last album
    Kick in the Spleen - Incredible, those solos at the end, wow.
    Platitudes - Tbh, maybe the weakest song so far. The bridge section just repeats and goes on forever, no guitar solos.
    Hexed - What a surprise! Wasn't expecting to like this song as much but wow. The ending sounds really cool and caught me off guard.
    Relapse - A short and sweet catchy one. Great song.
    Say Never Look Back - Didn't disappoint. Great guitar/key lead in the middle. And Jaska gets a drum solo? Wasn't expecting that! The very end is almost the exact same as the end to All Twisted haha.
    Soon Departed - I was looking forward to this one a lot and once again, not disappointed. I love how dark it is.
    Knuckleduster - I probably had a stupid grin on my face the entire time because I love what they did with this one. The chorus is a lot different and I'm surprised they didn't mess with the solos too much (which is a good thing).

    This will end up being better than IWC imo, I don't know about HoB (my favorite CoB album) but more time listening to this will only make it better. I don't see myself skipping any of these songs.

    Since everybody and their mother have it, and Amazon is not reacting to questions to why the release was pushed back, I’d happily take a link too :)

    Say Never Look Back is surprisingly good. Simple, but catchy and good interlude. Alexi's interlude skills are out of this world. Not an amazing song, but it's fun to listen to.

    This could change since I'm living in the moment right now, but for me Hexed is easily the best album since HCDR.

    Who the fuck is in charge of picking singles? Kick in the spleen and Hexed should have been the singles!! No doubt about it.

    I'm over the moon with the song Hexed, can't get over it. Especially after the IWC. Maybe daniel had a positive effect on the song writing. This album doesn't have "weird" or "off" sections that previous modern COB songs have.

    Hey, what's up with the ending of the Knuckleduster Remix, after the silence? What is that!!?!?!? Was that supposed to be the one minute Intro song? It appears to be anyway.

    I am just going to name this song "It Was Me" since we don't have a title lol.

    Seems like it! The remix is weird as hell though...

    I think the singles are picked as always to satisfy the crowd and to sound more like pop music. Usually they never choose the best songs as singles!

    Yeah, that remix was......something. I'm curious to why they would put something like that out? Surely they had to have some input.........

    Dude, you gotta love the freedom of wording in the English language. I love this type of expressions haha.

    Well, I hope I'm never done then ^^ But I have little hope, I feel this excitement only for Bodom's and Brendon Small's music. Everything else I used to love became just "ok" to me.
