5.0 out of 5 stars Good points, Derek March 25 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There are great pleasures in this album (and in much of the rest of their 'oove'). I would describe the sound as Speed Yes or Death Genesis for fans of 70's prog rock to relate to. Or Giant (that is Gentle Giant minus the gentle).
With enough listens, the Death Metal vocal style gets tolerable, even likeable, but in music you end up liking what you choose to like. And flaws are important. And I consider the across the board choice in Dark Metal to use the Excorcist / Cookie Monster voice severely limits the medium. This is a cheap point, but one might ask: Why choose to be less popular than you might be? If you need to be 'scared' by the voice then listen Satyr - he scares me each and every time with each and every phrase (truly).
COB is not as original as the sublime Meshuggah, from Sweden, but they're pretty damn good. I look forward to seeing them live to see how well they pull off these blistering twin guitar leads and guitar / keyboard duals.
I take issue with the suggestion that this album comes close to knocking Megadeth's Rust in Peace off the top of the melodic-chops-oriented-thrash metal heap. The only better melodic guitarist than Marty Freidman is his former Cacophony partner, the immortal Jason Becker (god bless JB!) and Rust in Piece just hasn't been equalled as an album for song structure, whip fast ingenious solos and clarity of production.

Everyone seems to give "Follow the Reaper" a better rating than this album, but pound for pound, I'm a much bigger fan of "Hatebreeder."
First off, I bought Hate Crew Deathroll first, and although I was blown away by the musicianship and the power, I'm a bigger fan of these earlier albums which concentrated a lot more on progressive metal stylings. I've also NEVER been one for death metal vocals, or anything even closely related to death metal, but Children of Bodom hit the nail right on the head in the best possible way, and I end up thinking that "hey, this wouldn't be HALF as good if it weren't for those incredibly sneering, snarling vocals!"
In short, if you're a heavy metal headbanging fan, but you aren't too crazy about things going the way of the almost-possessed lead singer, then this band, and this album, is a great place to start. Hatebreeder is not only a technically fluent album (it certainly manages to de-throne Megadeth's "Rust In Peace" as my favorite thrash album of all time), but it manages to throw very negative, depressing, hateful lyrics and overtones at you, while at the same time putting a HUGE SMILE on your face!
Honestly, Hatebreeder is an album that won't leave you down in the dumps. It may not have you planting flowers or adopting kittens, but you'll feel VERY empowered and positive after giving it a listen. The mixture of brutally heavy guitars, offset by what allmusic.com calls "the happiest keyboards on Earth," will have you thinking twice about death-metal stereotypes. This band can't be classified, and can't be beat. "Hatebreeder" is an album that takes a few listens to really absorb, but the more you listen to it, the more you get from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...only cause 5 is as high as I can go April 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
No way on earth anyone can ever get tired of this CD. This album has it all - every song is perfect! The opener starts off like I've never heard, "Silent Night, Bodom Night" is classic, tracks 3 and 5 have sounds that I've never heard anywhere else AND compliment the music perfectly, and Downfall... my favorite Children of Bodom song. Who would have imagined such strong keyboards can actually fit into a song and work?! I didn't. I actually watched the video clip for this song before hearing it. That's what made me buy the album, actually. I already had Follow the Reaper and Hate Crew Deathroll (with the bonus track that's the Slayer cover) when I bought this, and boy - why did I wait?!
I don't know what to say about this album. Its just flat out perfect. No second of this album went to waste when this was written. If you're the mother of a 10 year old, don't let him/her buy this. The lyrics are pretty harsh. Other than that, Alexi's voice is very, very strong, Janne's keyboards are beyond incredible, and the other members do their job to perfection.
Also, I think this is Children of Bodom's most solid effort yet. I don't mean that the result was great - I mean that this is written perfectly, as I said before. This was recorded at the famous Finnvox Studios, if you didn't already know.
To be honest, I don't know why any metal fan doesn't already have this album, unless you're just getting into the genre. If you like ANY music with harsh vocals, this album will be more than satisfying. Go get it - now.
When you get the time, go read some of my other reviews and say if they were helpful or not. Thanks for reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite CoB cd! March 8 2004
By Willo
Format:Audio CD
being the owner of follow the reaper and hate crew deathroll (still need something wild, although im sure that's amazing as well) i had high expectations for hatebreeder. children of bodom has always dazzled me with the amazingly fast and complex solos that alexi shreds through, not to mention the dual keyboards and guitar work they have going on. and i must say that hatebreeder, while the rest of the albums come close, is by far my favorite children of bodom cd.
every single song is so layered with crazy drum work, bass lines that you can actually hear, and guitar work that puts a lot of death metal to shame, and the keyboards just add to such an atmospheric recording that CoB are almost untouchable. alexi, while he isn't the greatest vocalist in death metal, you have to give him credit for ripping through his manic solos while screaming his lungs out, which very few can do and still sound good.
there isnt a bad song on this cd. newcomers to CoB might be caught off gaurd, so be warned...CoB AREN'T trying to be as evil as possible and a lot of their songs seem to have an upbeat flow to them. so if youre expecting something from nile or someone, you may be disapointed, AT FIRST. CoB definetely takes awhile to get used to, so give the cd a few listens before you make your decision on it. hatebreeder, as well as all other CoB albums, just grow on you the more you listen to them.
and sure, they may not be the best at pronouncing english, but where is it EVER written that all bands need to speak ENGLISH fluently? or english AT ALL? stop complaining and just enjoy the music. definetely an essential to any metal fan's collection.

Excellent album, it was impossible to stop at something wild. Definitely recommended. If you want a bit more of a kick, get Dimmu Borgir
