They are pretty terrible. The first 3 albums are only slightly listenable if you have no other alternative.

I'm very open minded to CoB, including their new stuff, but this was pretty weak IMO. :(

Wow glad it's not just me then. I've been thinking that for years, almost annoyed that they lost their awesome and replaced it with shite

Actually I take that back after playing the vid. For a newer Bodom song, it wasn't that bad. although clearly ripped a lot from In Flames there, probably due to the endless touring with them. Certainly pisses over anything off of Blooddrunk, which sucked donkey cock.

I really like Something Wild when it came out, also Follow The Reaper. I then lost all interest in that band. Picked up "Hate Crew.." soem years ago when they sold it for 4,90 in a local store - it was quite entertaining, but only for a few spins, since then its collecting dust.

My girlfriend still likes them, so she bought "Are You Dead Yet" some time ago, i couldnt believe how terrible that was...and that new song seems to go in a similar direction, in terms of triviality.

It's hard to believe these are the same guitarists from Sinergy. The last Sinergy album was about a zillion times better than this.

Personally, the vocals in COB kill it for me. They'd be better off dragging in some random wino off the street to gargle into the mic.

Yeah I don't understand how some people get really obsessed with them. This is a band that is so close to being good, it almost hurts. They have tons of talent, but manage to just bore the shit out of you. They deserve to be slapped upside the head by a good producer, because they might actually become listenable.

Also, Alexi Laiho is moderately overrated. :lol:

... Well, I have to say that kind of put a dent in a good day. I mean, I've never liked CoB to be perfectly honest, and I could say that even more about Alexi Laiho, but still.

To the guy mentioning Are You Dead Yet, am I the only one who thinks that parts of that song are reminiscent of rap rock?

+1

I try not to listen to anything else of theirs because I just get really disappointed. I wonder if they're burned out and can't admit it, or if they don't care anymore and can't admit it. Guess you could argue the new album is admission enough of both.
