    I really dig the remix, wonder who did it, really sounds like a Quake 3 ost, maybe Sonic Mayhem?

    Mrs. Bodom said it was done by an American Industrial duo called Youth Code

    The old version is better.

    So they do some jazz stuff on it for two minutes or what? If so then I believe they will just play the original arrangement live.

    The remix of Knuckledusters actually sounds like some garbage from Limp Biscuit. It's pretty much a joke, and I think that's what it's meant to be.

    Hexed (the song) seriously is one of their top tracks ever recorded. It’s damn good.

    I just read a review where they said that by the time you reach Hexed on the album you can tell the band is out of ideas. I haven't heard such nonsense before. Fan of the song or not, there are lots of great ideas all over the song.

    EDIT: Here is said review: https://stargazed.net/reviews/children-of-bodom-hexed/

    That's why I don't typically like "professional" reviewers. They're always trying to justify their jobs with over analyzing and saying nonsense to try and seem so enlightened.

    Yeah. Like that one guy wriggling his way out of praising FTR, saying 'is it really a good album, or is it just nostalgia?'...
    Then there's (paid?) reviews meant to hype a coming album by only praising it.

    So is the Knuckleduster remix like all that dance/trance/whatever remix stuff that Cradle of Filth used to do?

    I'm in love with Kick In The Spleen, great song. Hexed is a close second one. Didn't really bother with the rest so far, keeping these for the rest of the week :)

    I like the original Knuckleduster more, but this one doesn't sound bad at all. Don't know what to think of the remix though. Kind of reminded me of Ulvers Remix of Emperors Sworn, but it doesn't reach the same level of quality even once

    The odd thing with the song Hexed is, that everybody seems to like it. But why?

    It has no melody at all, the riffs are ok but nothing special. The song could be a Halo of Blood song. I don't get it.

    Ok, the ending is totally awesome. But seriously - there's nothing special with this song at all. It's fast, hard, lacks melodies, leads are 'ok', has that one neo-classical Bodom riff (the neo-riffs on HB and FTR are still better) and the most epic ending ever.

    Because it has all the ingredients. A memorable melody being the neoclassical one, the rhythm is intertwined with lead hooks, the chorus although simple feels atmospheric and hand bangy, a decent solo section, it flows well the entire way through, and its angry. It could definitely have more lead melodies (the entire album could), better solos and rhythm riffs, but all together its a damn solid package.
