Hate Crew Deathroll Explicit Lyrics, Import

Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Japanese only SHM-CD (Super High Material CD - playable on all CD players) pressing. Includes two bonus tracks. Universal. 2008.
Cet album marque, parallèlement à Satyricon, le passage de Children Of Bodom sur une major. De cela, on aurait pu craindre le pire : une édulcoration de leur black metal plutôt extrême. À l'écoute de Hate Crew Deathroll, on constatera qu'il n'en est rien, comme l'attestent les riffs plombés de "Needle 24/7". Foncièrement thrash, l'ensemble fait la part belle au talent de guitariste du leader Alexi Laiho. Sans compter qu'en pareil contexte, on se demandera où ce groupe va chercher son sens de la mélodie, qui affleure çà et là, au milieu d'un tourbillon infernal. --Hervé Comte --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

First off, let me say that I am NOT, in ANY way turned on by screaming death-metal style vocals AT ALL. So why did I give this album 5 stars? I honestly have NO IDEA! COB are not what I consider the "typical death-metal band." In fact, one could hardly call them death metal at all, given their signature classic heavy metal sound that is remniscent of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Motorhead, and Megadeth. The growling, screaming, nihilistic vocals that encompass every track do not bother me in the slightest, which is what makes me so curious as to why I'm so blown away by this release.
There is nothing redeeming in the sound or the lyrics of this album. Although tongue-in-cheek, and poking fun at most of heavy metal's most revered cliches, the album is nevertheless highly negative in tone, promoting anger, aggression, and cynicism. Yet at the same time, there's an undeniable characteristic of great fun that manages to shine through despite it all.
Production values are top-notch, which, like Finnish metal band Nightwish, serve only to continually amaze me with the level of effort and polish put into these albums. Simply put: if you turn this album up loud when you're driving in your car, your windows WILL rattle, and people WILL give you paranoid looks when you pull up to the red light next to them!
Unless you're used to thrash or speed metal, you may have a hard time getting into the rather harsh and rough tone of the album. If, however, you like cynical, angry, yet STRANGELY happy music, then you'll definitely dig this release!
1. "Needled 24/7" is a very powerful opening track. It features great work on all 5 parts. Killer riffing. Pretty cool video, caught it on Headbanger's Ball once or twice.
2. The last spoken line of "Needled 24/7" leads into the opening lines of "Sixpounder". The opening was very reminiscent of Chimaira, while the primary riff resembled that of Pantera's "A New Level." Video is currently playing on the Century Media records website (yep, they left Nuclear Blast.)
3. "Chokehold (Cocked and Loaded)" does not have a riff that reminds me of anything in particular, but features Alexi cutting one of my favorite guitar solos EVER!
4. "Bodom Beach Terror" has an intro that resembles "Witches Dance" by Mercyful Fate, while the primary riff reminds me of Napalm Death's "Breed to Breathe." Janne really pounds on that keyboard.
5. The dialogue at the end of "Bodom Beach Terror" leads into "Angels Don't Kill." First song on the album that is a bit slow, not really my favorite one. The keyboards are excellent though.
6. "Triple Corpse Hammerblow" brings back the intensity of the album.Read more ›
In this album it is obvious that COB have decided to make a record that breaks the mould... if they were to bring out another formulaic album, almost exactly the same as the last, it wouldn't have done well in the ratings would it?
There are some fantastic new sides to COB shown in this album. Yes there are fewer solos, but this CD is far more diverse than any previous album and every single track on this CD has something special/unexpected to look forward to... (and there ARE still lots of solos in the CD, just not as many as before!)
Basically there are two reactions to this CD.
If you are looking for more of the same, or a rehash of their previous albums, with hard-hitting songs coupled to lots of searing solos, then this CD will only be a four star record for you, and some parts of it you may even dislike.
However, if you are more open minded and willing to embrace COB's creative development... (it takes a lot of balls to play around with a winning formula) then you will realise that this CD has so much experimentation and interest that you don't need so many solos, and you will enjoy it immensely.
