2008 reissue of Follow the Reaper which is the third album by Finnish melodic death metal band Children of Bodom. The band's style in this release differs from the neo-classical approach of their previous album (though much of it still remains). A sound more heavily influenced by power metal presents itself in this album.
Lorsque Children Of Bodom sortit Something Wild, son premier album, en 1998, de nombreux rires narquois se firent entendre : du black metal à la sauce heavy metal (ou l'inverse), ça ne pouvait pas marcher ! Seulement voilà, les compos étaient tellement percutantes et le guitariste Alexi Laiho, son leader, était tellement doué que Something Wild connut un vif succès, tout comme Hatebreeder en 1999. Malheureusement, Follow The Reaper s'avère très en retrait par rapport à ses deux éminents prédécesseurs, un peu comme si Alexi, qui a bien d'autres occasions de cultiver sa noirceur en donnant un coup de main à divers groupes nettement plus black, tant au niveau musical qu'idéologique (notamment Impaled Nazarene), avait souhaité rendre Children Of Bodom plus accessible. Certes, ce n'est pas encore du Sinergy, le combo de sa petite amie dans lequel il joue également, mais l'influence du black atmosphérique a fortement régressé au profit d'un speed mélodique indéniablement moins sombre. Ceci n'enlève rien au talent d'Alexi, qui s'exprime ici différemment, mais la puissance de feu de Children Of Bodom s'en trouve considérablement amoindrie. --Hervé SK Guégano

If In Flames got knocked up by Dimmu Borgir and somehow produced offspring, its name would be Children of Bodom. Read morePublished on June 4 2004 by "drewfusdamoron"
