    Go for Hatebreeder simply because it's the best album any metal band ever released in history, period.

    Hatebreeder or/and Follow The Reaper later Something Wild and HCDR and then Blooddrunk. That would be my advice... =)

    I'd say Follow The Reaper just because it's my favourite album by them but Hatebreeder would be a good choice too.

    Yes, and don't forget to totally skip Are You Dead Yet?, which was composed and played by drunk orangutans.

    Depending on which song you've heard, but I'd advise HCD, it's the most neutral album. It has some ''old Bodom'' influences and some thrash influences like the ones nowadays, besides it's a kickass album. Although my opinion isn't really useful as I like all their CD's almost the same :lol: I supose HB or SW if you want the neoclassical side of it (shitloads of fast arpegios, wild solos and dog vocals, :kickass:), but the best't be if you got them all, cos they're quite different from each other.

    ^ then it's best he checks every single album... because every one of them has good qualities and each one is different in one way or another...

    I'd suggest Hate Crew Deathroll also, not because it's their best album, but because it shows boith sides of Bodom's discography, eg. Needled sounds more like old bodom and You're better off dead more like the new. But as other s have said already, I'd buy as many of the albums in as short period of time your wallet lets you, because then you get the bigger picture faster and you won't start dissing a single bodom-album simply because it doesn't sound like the one you first fell in love with.

    I don't understand why everyone hate Are You Dead Yet?. I've heard all the songs of AYDY except Next In Line and Bastards Of Bodom, and they're all great.. It's not like they're playing three different riffs in 10 min. like Metallica did on St. Anger? I think you should get all the Bodom albums, cus they're all great :).

    Hatebreeder or Hate Crew Deathroll in my opinion. The other have some nice songs, but those are my favs (10/10).

    IMO you're fine with choosing any of the three: Hatebreeder, Follow the Reaper, or Hate Crew Deathroll. All such good albums that you'll be pleased whatever you choose.
