    2) Hatecrew Deathroll
    3) Halo of Blood
    4) Something Wild
    5) Hatebreeder
    6) Are You Dead Yet?

    Under which aspects did you rate a song?
    I always thought about doing the same thing a long time ago just for fun.
    I used to rate every song and album with these aspects:

    for albums (scala 1-10):
    - mixing/production
    - guitar tone
    - clarity
    - solos

    and for songs 1-5 points

    Might as well make an album ranking too.

    1. Hatebreeder
    2. Follow The Reaper
    3. Hate Crew Deathroll
    4. Halo Of Blood
    5. Are You Dead Yet?
    6. Something Wild
    7. Relentless Reckless Forever
    8. Blooddrunk

    (
    9. Skeletons In The Closet
    10. Shining
    11. Ubiguitous Absence of Remission
    12. Implosion Of Heaven
    )

    But depending on the day, my mood and other factors, SW can go up to place 3, RRF can get ranked higher, and so on. This is in no way definitive and never will be.

    I think about how the general impact of the song is like. What kind of atmosphere, what it makes me see or feel, how the soundworld is, the artistic theme, how epic, melodic, dark, brutal, heavy it is... If somebody wrote a song that was technically like SNBN and had the same pieces composion-wise, but wasn't epicly arranged and didn't feel climatic or atmospheric, I might not like it at all. Of course the production level and technicality is a very important part, but I take it as given for every COB song. I just think about how cool, epic, genius, atmospheric a song is like and what story it tells, I don't mind so much what scales they play etc. That's the thing about songs. In solos these are priorities also, but I love some flashy, kung fu show-off especially in solos. I guess I've used to Bodom so all their songs don't feel particularly ninja technical and insanely fast anymore like they did when I started listening to them, it's just a given, something I take for granted. All these areas can always be improved, but I'm just leaning a bit more towards atmosphere and stuff than technicality.

    Of course technicality is very important in the enjoyability of the listening experience as well, but alone it's nothing; I still think simple, genious basic ideas are the main thing, then you incorporate wild technicality as a tool to make it satisfying for a demanding metal listener. I don't have to whistle every single note in SNBN to feel its vast epicness... however, certain songs rely more prominently on technical playing and would sound nothing if you tried whistling them.

    This is like super hard, like choosing between your mom and your dad. My heart will always go towards Hate Crew Deathroll because it was the first Children Of Bodom record i heard. I listened to a Needled 24/7 sampler on a website and went to my local cd store to buy the album without thinking of downloading a single song and it blew my mind, it made me like harsh growling vocals. I was like "how can this be so angry yet so melodic?", i was amazed.

    But if i have to be fair my lsit would be:

    1 - Follow The Reaper
    2 - Halo Of Blood / Hate Crew Deathroll
    4 - Hatebreeder
    5 - Something Wild
    6 - Are you dead yet?
    7 - Relentless Reckless Forever
    8 - Blooddrunk

    It's still Are You Dead Yet? Great songs, brutal sound, little keyboard use. I still can't make up my mind about Halo of Blood, it's somewhat uncohesive for me to rank.

    Now that my excitement has calmed, and the new album smell has faded, I think I would rank Hatebreeder over Halo of Blood again. HOB is still in my top 3, and I'm still enjoying it quite a bit.

    The only tracks that haven't been getting much plays are Scream for Silence and Damaged Beyond Repair. Transference is enjoyable again after taking a long break from listening to it.

    Also, I think I would put Relentless over Something Wild now. I've concluded that Something Wild is more impressive from a creativity standpoint, but Relentless is simply more enjoyable to listen to, the few good tracks that is.

    At the moment I listen to HOB more than anything else, but I'd still say FTR is my favorite. FTR, HOB, HB and HCDR (No particular order) are my top 4 with really small gaps between.

    Also, Arcane, where's Song Survivor III?

    Interesting choice. You meant Bodom After Midnight, right?

    Right now the ranking would be

    1.Are you dead yet?
    2.Halo of blood
    3.Follow the reaper/HCDR/Hatebreeder
    4.Blooddrunk/Something wild
    5.RRF

    I've noticed that my mood affects heavily on what album or song sounds really good, it's kinda wierd.

    The rankings vary over time, nothing's absolute, but I've to say that RRF is the hardest one for me to get into, even though there are great songs on that album.
