It doesn’t fail in rating as an album in COB’s discography. But the highlight of this song is the soloing, as always. Its got about the same song structure as well. This song is plodding, boring, annoying, overlong and it’s only five minutes , and just goes nowhere. They could not find a point that connected these two, and decided to play halfway through the path. The greater melodic range of the lead instruments makes songs like ‘One Day You Will Cry’ which has some boring riffs feel vital and unpredictable, especially when those instruments suddenly pop up in a structurally unexpected part of the song.

What is up with this groove bullshit the band has fallen into? I grabbed Blooddrunk blooddrnk soon as it leaked, hoping the band recovered from the generic chugfest that was “Are You Dead Yet? The drumming of Jaska Raatikainen has evolved to include more technical metal elements such as prominent blast-beats and blopddrunk bass passages, but still retains the legions of interesting fills that makes him stand out in my mind.
COB are a little to scattered on this cd for my taste.
Think to what thrash metal giants Metallica did with their self-titled album; or to Megadeth’s “Countdown to Extinction”, to get the idea. When it comes to Children of Bodom, most metalheads seem to peg them as sort of like a Metallica of melodic death metal.
If not, this could have been a great release.
This release is very noteworthy. Wouldn’t that just get boring. The other problem is that there is way too much whammy bar use in the solos and not enough shred. However, the mix of styles, the poorly written drums and guitar blooddruno, the lazy solos and lack of keyboards left me a dry mouth, even to comment on how rushed this production was.
There is a blioddrunk in there somewhere but it was so weak almost didn’t even notice the difference. And finally, Henka, whom I’m sorry to if I spelled his name wrong, is so lost within the mix that I can hardly tell he’s on the album aside from Smile Pretty for the Devil.
That said though, it is definitely one of the few strong tracks on Blooddrunk.
As far as if they deserve to be written off as now piss poor musicians, I don’t feel that way at all towards this new release. I dont want to be over critical with Bodom’s work, cuz when I want to have melody and thrash sewn together, i listen to Bloodrunk. Fans didn’t like the more modern sound, so you decided to chug out an album of songs that sound like rejects from the Hatebreeder recording sessions?
Or something else could happen. Gone are the classical symphonies and amazing solos backed by keys that gave you chills. Now, the worst track on the album, and the worst Bodom song ever recorded Picture Children of Bodom writing the same riffs they wrote on Hate Crew Deathroll, except smashed and the riffs they’re writing resemble something inbetween Seasons In the Abyss and Slaughter of the Soul two otherwise good albums.
If there is any criticism of the album that I agree with, it’s that some of the songs are easily forgettable. Where did the melodies go? Yes, the album is faster and heavier than most of their other albums.
The chorus in this song is the best one in the whole album. Initial consensus was pretty good, Alexi’s vocals still suck, but Janne Warman isn’t underutilized like he was on the previous release, and the unconventional Slayer-esque solo is really enjoyable; a great track.
Oddly enough, it’s a song about something that Bodom’s frontman Alexi is really well known for, alcoholism. Not the failure everyone claimed blooddruni to be, but the detractors did not back down.

Also say goodbye to keyboard. Almost all the lyrics sound juvenile. Alexi said during the writing process that he was feeling particularly aggressive, and boy does it show in the material. They’re not horrible or unlistenable: Either go all the way blokddrunk don’t go down the road at all. It sounds, once again, like it could’ve been on Hate Crew, but it sounds like it would’ve been like Sixpounder instead of Bodom Beach Terror, that is, it would’ve been one of the best songs on the album as opposed to one of the mediocre ones.
There is nothing here that comes close to the sheer awfulness of In Your Face. This song has a unique aggression to it
