    Maybe he's just a wannabe-reviewer who writes random bullshit just to sound professional.

    People can write whatever they want just to make them feel smart or something... It's probably just someone who has listened to 3 or 4 old bodom songs and decided that WIWI sounded similar or something..
    People talk a lot of crap anyway..

    Well, it really depends on your perspective on the matter. When I listened to music through my portable CD player alone, I used to think many albums sounded good when they, in fact, didn't. As an audiophile I now tend to be quite picky about records' sound quality, and I grant you Bodom albums just don't sound very good on high-end setups.

    Tone is not an audiophile parameter as much as a personal, artistic choice of the band. You may like it or not, but it doesn't make a record good or bad per se. I can tell you my favorite Bodom tone so far is on HCDR, but compare its overall sound quality to - say - Eric Clapton's Clapton or Lee Ritenour's Wes Bound... there really is no comparison. I don't enjoy the music on either of the aforementioned two albums, but it was just to make my point clear :)

    Hmm..maybe that explains why I think all the albums sound good. I have no hign end audio equipment to listen to them through...just in my car or stero at home.

    Also...it's ok to like Clapton...he is the fucking man.....old man....but great non the less.

    The more revealing your setup, the less forgiving it is with imperfect records (which are, I am sorry to say, the vast majority).

    Of course, I've got nothing against Clapton. I just don't like that specific CD :)

    30sec~ samples of all songs, but with A LOT better quality than the ones we've heard previously. These on 7digital is 320kbps MP3's. Also, not sure if the samples are from the exact same parts as the Amazon samples. But the good news is that the quality is better.

    EDIT: Confirming that the samples are taken from the same parts of the songs. Damn these are good quality samples though.

    No that is not a word ^^

    They probably have both Alexi and Roope's tone on the ablum. One is more hollow and less trebley and the other is really sharp. Alexi is probably using the Lee Jackson and I think maybe Roope is using that blackstar amp?

    I just listened to the higher quality samples, and when it comes to atmosphere this album actually is 'Satanic'. RRF has that kind of atmosphere in it.

    Now we have some good quality samples of the album! ... and wow. The tone is probably the best Bodom tone we've seen so far. Pretty darn clear and bright. The only thing I have is the palm mute could use a little more meat.

    We must have different ideas on what "satanic" music is. Darkthrone's first four albums or Bathory's first three... don't hear any of that atmosphere here. :D

    WOW! Thats really cool! where did you find those? those are are definitely legit recordings!

    yah, ive heard the word satanic a couple times now to describe the vibe on rrf, but honeslty i dont know why. it has a mysterious quality to it yes but satanic i dont think so.

    It could be that Alexi's tones are recorded with more than one microphone or recorded twice with two slightly different amp settings which is very common in metal to get that really thick tone.

    man how you guys find all this shit is beyond me, is there like a cob new info patrol that just searches every webpage?

    I think yes the guitar tone sounds great but I think the real standout is the drums and bass. I haven't heard drums this powerful or in your face on a CoB record thus far that I can remember as they usually take a backseat whereas in this they're a lot more upfront and doing some different crazy things. The bass also is really big and booming but not as huge a difference as the drums, overall the cool new influences molded with the cob style, plus the new overall sound from the recording is really pumping me up; i expected the more mainstream producer to really dumb it down but this seems like its really pushing it to a new level!

    That is quite some ballsack-ripping tone there!

    -edit: Alexi's scream in Shovel Knockout sounds very different from the usual =P

    Better than with 99% of the other (metal) band forums where you can wait for weeks before someone posts a new song or something.

    The tone sounds a thousand times better on the new samples. Holy shit. The lower quality samples make the tone sound only a tad better than Blooddrunk. Now I can't wait to hear the final copy. Could be the best production yet... at least the samples are pointing towards that.
