Format: DVD
Having jumped on the COB bandwagon but one year ago, I was excited to see a live DVD was on the way. Now I see what all the fuss is about!

First of all, COB have the inspiration, the insane level of skill, and a natural songwriting talent that set them in a class all their own in the metal world. Making such extreme heavy metal so easily listenable is not an easy feat. "Stockholm Knockout" proves that you don't have to be a Satan worshipper to enjoy some harder-edged metal. The fans in the crowd are rabid, but are having such an optimistically good time that it infects you as you watch them from the comfort of your couch.

Alexi Laiho leads the charge, shredding and growling through his songs while simultaneously being offset by lush keyboards and lethal, pinpoint precise drumming. While the band does stumble, albeit rarely, I believe it to be more a case of the sheer fun which acts as a distraction, especially in Alexi's case.

The sound quality is another matter. I was overjoyed when I cranked up my 5.1 receiver and listened to what is perhaps the perfect heavy metal mix I've ever heard on live DVD. Drums are thundering, and in the forefront, but give way to the high frequency guitars, all without drowning out the vocals. Being such a mercilessly strict audiophile, I tried my hardest to pick out any mismanagement of the sound levels, but I must say that whoever was behind the mixing board that night got it right!

If the concert, in all it's glory, isn't enough, the DVD offers up plenty more. The behind-the-scenes documentary about COB's history is almost worth the price by itself. To finally see the band in a more personable light (which includes individual interviews and behind the scenes craziness) is a gift, as far as I'm concerned.

There is so much packed into this DVD that it is definately a must buy for any fan, especially for the current price.. can't be passed up for under $15.

My one and only complaint is that the video quality seems to be lacking. It was quite disapointing to watch on a HDTV setup (more like my monitor). However, if you haven't gone HD yet, then you will most likely not notice anything. Granted it could be my DVD-ROM drive or something, a standalone player may play it better. I have never had issues like this before with any other DVD though. I think they just squeezed on a lot of video for a single disc. It should probably be a two disc set. But with that asside, the content is amazing.

4/5 stars because of the video quality. Otherwise i'd want to give it a 6.

I never thought COB could get any better, but I was wrong. COB live is mind blowing and I cant believe I didn't see this masterpiece sooner. The sound is actually unbelievable, and there are some features on the DVD that you can't see anywhere else. Like the amazing drum solo, and Alexi and Janne going head to head in an all out solo battle. Plus the things these guys do on stage...they roast sausage! how cool is that! I'm telling you, this DVD should not be passed up, it is a must for any fan. out for now.

This is a great DVD that helps you get to really know the band, from where they come from musically to how they are on the road. You even see at one point Alexi snorting a condom (why, were not to sure), great stuff though.

The concert itself is amazing and relectless, they give everything on stage and are brilliant to watch. You have a drum solo, keyboard vs guitar solo with all the songs you've come to love. All in all it's a great watch for any fan. Great DVD to hype up the upcoming tour.

Ultimate COB DVD Aug. 15 2008
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Chaos Ridden Years: Stockholm Knockout Live is the ultimate DVD release for fans of the innovative Finnish metal band Children of Bodom.

The Main Program: The primary focus of this DVD release is a blistering live performance in Stockholm, Sweden. A Finnish audience would have made more sense, but there's no denying the Stockholm audience's enthusiasm. The band was in top form for this show, blasting through their catalog with an emphasis on the Hate Crew Deathroll and Are You Dead Yet? material. Alexi's between-songs banter gets a little ridiculous at times, but you can tell he's having a great time.

The Bonus Features: To be perfectly honest, I think the bonus features on this DVD may outshine the main program. There's a great documentary called Chaos Ridden Years that gives the history of the band with plenty of band interviews and rare footage. It's a fascinating look at how a group of teenagers relentlessly pursued their metal dreams. In addition to Chaos Ridden Years, you also get all of the band's promotional videos. They could have released these as a separate DVD (I know I'd have bought it). You also get a behind the scenes documentary focusing on the Stockholm gig. That one is a bit of a throwaway, but after Chaos Ridden Years and the killer video collection, it hardly matters.

The Verdict: This DVD release is an absolute must-have for all Children of Bodom fans. Whether you're looking for live material, music videos, or "Behind the Music" band info, Chaos Ridden Years: Stockholm Knockout Live has it all. My only complaint (and believe me it's a minor one) is that the packaging doesn't really live up to the content. Such an impressive DVD release deserves a more deluxe treatment.

Great show of a great band Dec 14 2006
By Mathieu Bergeron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Children of bodom is one of the best metal band in the world.When I heard they were making a dvd I was excited because I never saw them live.Now that I watched the dvd, I can say that they are as impressive in show as they are in the studio.While the show is great Ido have one complaint.I think the set list isn't as impresive.Here's the concert tracklist:

Living Dead Beat

Sixpounder

Silent Night, Bodom Night

Hate Me!

We're Not Gonna Fall

Angels Don't Kill

Deadbeats I (drum solo)

Bodom After Midnight /

Bodom Beach Terror - medley

Follow the Reaper

Needled 24/7

Clash of the Booze Brothers (solo battle)

In Your Face

Hate Crew Deathroll

Are You Dead Yet?

Solo: Roope Latvala - Guitar

Lake Bodom

Everytime I Die

Downfall

The problem I have is that their 2 best album for me is hatebreeder and follow the reaper.As you can see they forgot a lot of their best song such as hatebreeder, children of bodom,mask of sanity or kissing the shadows just to name a few.By the way their killer song Bodom after midnight included in the show has been dramastically cut which is unfortunate because it is trully one of their best.One of the best thing of the show has to be the drum solo (who would have thought that he only use one bass drum)In terms of extra there is a documentary and music videos.In conclusion I dont think its the best metal show Ive seen on dvd but for only 10$if your a fan then you should pick this up and if you're not pick it up anywayit is totally worth it.

Children of Madness Dec 30 2006
By Master Jojo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The COB DVD is a must buy....I should say this one has all the songs that had to be here except that Everytime I Die is a little bit slower here....anyway they pull of this one, Silent Night Bodom Night, Hatebreeder and Needled 24/7....Buy this and play this to your home theater player along with LOG (Killadelphia), Machine Head(Elegies), Megadeth(Rude Awakening), Arch Enemy(My Apocalypse) and Dream Theater(Live in Budokan) and its like you are in a festival...

GREAT DVD Aug. 22 2007
By Luke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This DVD is CHOCK FULL of stuff, especially for a $14.99 price tag. The live set is amazing, the vocals are almost spot on with the DVD, and the playing, while at times somewhat sloppy, is great, and the guitars sound perfectly in tune, especially when they play the older material (which is more power metal sounding) and then they play the new material (which is more heavy metal)- it all sounds perfect no matter which era they play from. The solo's are great, and the Bodom After Midnight/Bodom Beach Terror medley (while I wish BAM had been played in it's entirety) is really interesting and fun. The way they do Needled 24/7, with the stop before the speedy verse, was cool, and Alexi's announcements between songs add a lot of flavor. If I didn't know any better, I'd have thought these songs were studio recordings, they sound THAT good. Sixpounder could have had a better mix (the harmonics are a little tough to hear) but overall it has a good mix. It's louder than most studio discs I've heard, to be honest. It has all their videos (minus Needled 24/7) and they are all fun to watch, plus a 47 minute documentary detailing the history of the band (which is a blast to watch), plus deleted scenes and a behind-the-scenes of the concert. This DVD is well worth the price, and if you're a CoB fan, you have no excuse not to own this DVD, along with the two-CD counterpart to this concert. BUY IT. You will not regret it.

It's not Tokyo Warhearts, but it's still Bodom Oct. 29 2006
By Jason W. Klimek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First I have to say that Bodom is my favorite band and Alexi is a master...but this album was not as good as their first live album. I think that Alexi's playing has worsened over the years. The songs on the album are a fairly good selection. They really limit the number of songs off of Are You Dead Yet?, which is fantastic. The real disappointment is that they only play one song off of Something Wild and only a few off of Hatebreeder and some of the solos are not up to par; all of the tracks off of Follow The Reaper are phenominal. The sound quality is pretty good on all the tracks, and all but Henka have their own solo tracks, including Clash of the Booze Brothers which is a throw back to Tokyo Warhearts with Alexi and Janne battling it out, though I think Alexi kind of falls short of what I expected. All in all this album is a must own for all Bodom fans. This lets all fans experience Bodom live, since trips around the US for Bodom are few and far between.
