    Hello all,

    I have yet to hear any CoB albums, but I have heard that they are an extremely talented band and so I must go buy a CD this evening. My current favorite bands are Opeth, Agalloch, In Flames, Moonsorrow...so looking for that type of style. I know the vocals are a little more power metal in CoB, but i am only concerned with the musical composition. Which album would you suggest based on my musical preferences? I read that hatebreeder is common favorite, but i am double checking to see if anyone has any further insights.

    Cheers

    I'd say Hatebreeder but that's just me. But FtR is strong too...as is all of their albums...

    and their vocals, to me, are more of a harsh blackish style than power(Hatebreeder the black is most prominent, IMO...)

    But definately harsh vocals.

    mehh...everybody says hatebreeder (Incredible Album though). Personally i think FTR tells the most about their style while being accessible at the same time, but eventually get something wild. That's my favorite CD of all time.

    I did, as a matter of fact, look at many of the other threads that involved this question. However, I was looking for a more specific suggestion based on my musical preferences that I listed above. It was a moot point anyways, because I got to the CD store and they only had Hate Crew Deathroll. I bought it and I liked it quite a bit, will be getting more soon.

    BTW nice signature a physicist no doubt? :headbang:

    Hate Crew Deathroll is their "new style". They focused a lot more on strong rhythm playing for this album. It's currently my favorite. At first I didn't like it because I liked the neoclassical lead on Something Wild and Hatebreeder but it grew on me. If you have a smaller record store nearby you can usually get them to order CD's for you. I have yet to hear anyone suggest this yet, but you should buy Tokyo Warhearts. It's their live release. It has a mix of songs from the earlier CD's and they play just as well live as they do in the studio. You definitely want to check that CD out, without a doubt. I recommend it to ANYONE who doesn't have it yet.

    @Yicjdic - Go to Rasputins and get Follow the Reaper first. You know you can trust me on this recommendation. :) I'm going to assume you will be going to the Iced Earth COB/Evergrey gig in SF? What about the In Flames gig? I made a list of a shitload of Bay Area shows up to June... if you want it, let me know. A lot of people on one of the egroups I'm in don't know about a lot of the gigs that come here, so I made the list. :D

    not to say anything bad about hate crew death-roll, but maybe its good to get it first since it can only get better from there

    Squeak-

    I wish we had Rasputins down here in Santa Cruz, but alas only a streetlight records which is pretty weak on the black/death metal CDs. I will be going up to berkeley within the week so I will get Follow the Reaper when I am up there.

    And yes! please send me the list, I haven't really kept up on the shows for the past couple of months and I would really appriciate a list. I've never really done the PM thing 'round here but if you like you could email the list to blemaux@ucsc.edu.

    Much Thanks!

    For sure, I saw you at the Opeth Cane's show in San Diego about a year ago, but I never had a chance to say hi...too much good beer and music :) I will defintely be heading up to some shows throughout the next couple of months (after I get your list of course and find out whats going on) so I am sure we can arrange something.

    Cheers
