Product Details

Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT your typical metal album Feb. 4 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is my first Children of Bodom purchase. I realize that it's late in the catalogue, but oh well. I heard a few tracks from the Internet from previous releases, which kind of got me interested, so I decided to pick this album up.
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hate Crew Deathroll May 23 2005
By Zakk D
Format:Audio CD
"WOW" was the first thing that came out of my mouth when i heard the opening track to this masterpiece... "Needled 24/7". The whole cd is just amazing with the solos and riffs and everything. CoB is f*ckin awesome and they continue to put out great albums. I see here that there is supposed to be a bonus track of "silent scream" by slayer but on my cd its not there... i dont know why but its really pissing me off. anyways, great metal, go buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another amazing CD May 10 2005
Format:Audio CD
Just like all their other CD's, it's really something to admire. Everything on the album is well put together, and they never lost the sound that makes them what they are. This album is some of the best metal ive ever heard. So if you are a metal fan, I would without a doubt reccommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars blew me away Feb. 14 2005
Format:Audio CD
the first time i hear children of bodom was the song needled 24/7 on mtv 2's headbaners ball vol. 2. and let me tell ya, it blew me away. i listened to the song over and over. then i went out and got this cd here, and i was blown away all over again. every song on here kicks ass. i could go through every song, but you'd repeatedly hear the words "awesome" and "sweet" over and over again till it got annoying. this is my first cob album, so ill be checkin out hatebreeder or ftr next. this album is amazing, so buy it. ive heard people say this ones a little poppier than the others, but its still good. if the earlier cob is harder, so i will DEFINATELY be picking some of that up.
ps, try out amon amarth's 'vs the world'. itll make your ears bleed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! July 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
I heard the song "Sixpounder" on Music Choice-Metal. The moment I heard it, I was hooked. Children of Bodom are one of the most amazing bands Finland has ever spawned. Vocalist/rhythm/lead guitarist Alexi Laiho has one of the best voices in melodic death metal, and packs a punch with co-guitarist Alexander Kuoppola (who recently left the band for unknown reasons.) Bassist Henkka T. Blacksmith, keyboard virtuoso Janne Warmen, and drummer Jaska W. Raatikainen keep the rhythm, and keep it well. If you like Alexi, he plays guitar in Sinergy. Also, Janne plays keyboards for his own solo project, Warmen, as well as Timo Kotipelto's solo project, Kotipelto. Let's break down the tunes.
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.
