    About the video: The band looks great, but Alexi looks like someone who was not at the same event as his mates around him. He was definitely not well:/

    I don't know... : ) Maybe Henkka ( or Jaska/Janne) knows someone who worked on the video and they talked about it.... perhaps.

    Well, if this video is very last work with him and if he was drunk here... and he died because of alcohol... maybe he drank more alcohol these times. :/
    (They made the video around December 19.)

    Sure, because I haven't concrete information about this, I just trust him. Alix will be answered the question if he wants to.

    Strongly disliking the production. I think this is the worst produced stuff Alexi has ever been involved with. That fast riffing sounds like complete ass. Drums, which were so stellar in COB and Synergy are a washed out mess here. What's going on with the snare during blast beats? One or two cymbals are audible the rest doesn't exist. Keyboards compete with guitars for the same space. How did Karmila botch the mixing here so bad dammit.

    Love Daniel's solo, sounds refreshing and different.

    Can't wait for guitar cover videos. Those at least will be better sounding.

    I get what you're saying. It overall sounds a little muddy. But still it sounds aggressive, fresh and energetic which is more important to me than a very clean but boring sound.

    Unfortunately I have to agree that the production is really lacking especially on drum sound. I will reserve my full judgement for when I hear it in lossless quality though.

    After several listens I think that the song itself is not that memorable either - seems pretty disjointed - but the bridge section is really cool. It will probably grow on me though.

    Sorry mate but it’s not speculation. I’m telling you that he did. A lot of people worked on that video This is with a lot of editing to make him look better as well which is worrying.

    This was such a great goodbye. Youtube premiere felt like an online funeral with all the fans. I'm glad Alexi left us some material to celebrate his life and death. It brought a lot of closure to this loss.

    About the song:
    I really liked it, feels like a mixture of Halo of Blood album with Hexed album and I really like that Bodom sound. Ofc nothing beats Hatebreeder/FTR for me but I never ever expected Alexi to do an album like that again.
    Intro sounds so mean, keyboards adds a dark atmosphere a lot and Daniel arrangements really suit Alexi's lead guitar.
    Verse is so good, riff starts with the first few notes of Blackened riff by Metallica and then changes to a more melodic approach. Drumming here is so good, lot's of quick double bass fills to follow the guitar. I really dig the new drummer's work. This verse makes me dance, and I love the Bodom that makes me dance.
    Bridge before chorus gives me some FTR vibes, good transition.
    Chorus is ok, I like the gang shouts, not the best part but a really catchy one.
    Breakdown is really good, the delay on the guitar makes it sound so good and the drums come in with just ride and snare + bass drum in 1 and 3 beats, that's the way to go for a breakdown like this, not only that, then comes the bass drum triplets which is such a nice addition, again drummer stealing the show here.
    Alexi solo is ok, Daniel one is pretty good, love it.

    All in all great song to say goodbye, I'm really happy. We only have one left, thanks Alexi for this gift <3

    Sound mix sound weird, instruments are fighting to get audible and everything sounds really centered and like artificially stereodized

    Hey, there was some mean energy on this one, it sounded authentic and no so much like "guys, the label says we need to make an album". IWC clearly suffered from that, and even some songs of hexed. Shit they did not play PTSWB live

    For me it was a really carefully done mix, at the beginning all instruments are in cohesion, they all have equal strength, blast beats are softened so it doesn't sound like some dull black metal, in verse guitars and bass dominate, pre chorus has an emphasis on the keyboards. Guitar solos have perfect tone, they sound metal, unlike solos on Hexed that sound like some hard rock band.

    Your comment earlier and this one above really made me notice some awkward whammy bar hand placement at 3:19. As if he wasn't sure/not totally there type of thing. Might be reading in too much. :(

    Yah mixing to me is not great, definitely lacking clarity in the instruments and guitars seem too low while drums seem a bit too loud. Mixing on hexed was great. everything with clear, tight and guitars were very upfront but very well balanced with all the rest.
    really impressed with dan's solo, didnt know he could compose so well. i literally thought it was an alexi solo and in fact his solo was better than alexi's in this song. love the song though even though i hate blast beats.

    Noticed that also right away. Like he was expecting the tremolo arm to be close by but then realized it wasn't.

    I am starting to think that metalheads really like muddy production :rofl: last three Bodom albums all had a lot of background hiss and noise, and they all had bad drum sound, inaudible bass and Hexed even had muddy guitar sound too
