Product Description

Product Description

2008 reissue of Something Wild, the debut album by the Finnish melodic death metal band Children of Bodom, released in 1997. The album presents a darker and generally more experimental sound than the one present in their later albums, and contributed most to the infamous genre controversy of their classification as a death metal or black metal band at the time. Children of Bodom have gone from being an amazing band from Finland to a household name worldwide in the metal scene. Their intensity, flawless execution and quality of material have put them on a pedestal that most bands is any genre can only dream of.

The one that started it all, probably one of my favourite albums to this date. It's Dimmu Borgir split up

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have! July 11 2004

This is an great cd by an awesome band. When I first heard CoB it was on this album and I was amazed. The musicianship is so good. If you're interested in anything by CoB I also suggest you try listening to other great bands like dimmu borgir, inflames and even cradle of filth. This band comprises excellent vocals, complicated guitar work and good use of the double bass pedal. I suggest that you get this album if you're interested in death metal, black metal, speed metal ,thrash metal or are just interested in a good change of music. IT ROCKS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good debut by Bodom April 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is the most straight up death metal that was done by Children of Bodom. Thus it is the least meolodic of all of their albums. However this album is still a very good album with amazing instumentals. The talent is definately here but the more straight up death metal approach makes it seem more subdued and less attention grabbing as it is in Bodom's other albums. One of the failings of this album is its very short length, I beleive that it is about 28 minutes long. Buy the other Bodom albums before this and if you fall in love with their unique style of death metal then i urge you to purchase this, if you hate their style of playing becuase it is not metal enough then I also urge you to purchase this as it may be more in your alley.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome! Dec 30 2003

Children of Bodom is without a doubt, my fav band. when i bought this cd i loved them even more! its amazing! and that one dude who wrote that CoB isnt death metal is right, they are Progressive Black metal... but Opeth, i dunno if Death Metal would be appropriate for ALL their material... Cannibal Corpse or Morbid Angel on the other hand, are 2 great examples of Death Metal bands

Children of Bodom was introduced to me by a friend of mine. After listening to samples from each CD, I purchased all three immediately. Children uses incredible guitar with keyboards in a way that I never thought could be possible. The guitar solos that we all love from any kind of metal are present, but the keyboards are used for reinforcement at times which gives an almost perfect result. My favorite songs are "Red Light in My Eyes, Pt. 1" and "Touch Like Angel of Death." With a review that contains only praise, one might ask why Something Wild only received 4 stars. Actually, it is probably closer to 4.5. There are two things that annoy me to no end. The first is the fact that the CD is not very long track-wise. Second, the cover of "Mass Hypnosis," originally by Sepultura, is only included on the Japanese version. After managing to hear this song, I deeply regret that the band did not include this song on the U.S. release. Of course, neither of these reasons is good for basing a purchasing decision upon. I do suggest that this album be purchased, as I doubt that there will be any disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars GET THIS CD!!!!! Jan. 1 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is truely a great. The first major release from a truely great metal band. Well first off, let me say that CoB arent NOT death metal! Just because they have raspy vocals doesnt make them death metal. They are more black metal than death. If you wanna hear real death metal listen to Opeth, Nile, Dismember, Death, or something similar. If you listen to any of those bands you will see the difference and notice that CoB sound very different. Well anyway, this album still rules...
1. Deadnight Warrior (9/10) - This is a great opener, really gets you going when you first put it on. Also the first single off the album I believe.
2. In the Shadows (10/10) - This is the best song on the whole album in my oppinion. Never a dull moment here, just great guitar work, speed, and intensity \m/
3. Red Light in My Eyes, Pt. 1 (9/10) - Excellent song, also some amazing guitar work.
4. Red Light in My Eyes, Pt. 2 (8/10) - This is a really intense one, with some great vocals.
5. Lake Bodom (9.5/10) - Another bodom masterpiece.
6. Nail (8/10) - Great song. Excellent keyboard work here done by Mr.Wirman.
7. Touch Like Angel Of Death (9/10) - Another great, really has a dark feel to it.
So in average this CD gets a 9, and thats pretty god**** good. I also highly recommened getting Hatebreeder and Follow The Reaper, and also their newest album Hate Crew Deathroll when it comes out, Im sure it will be kick***.

...In The Shadows. A crescendo leads into the first "Black-Metal-Speed" level....that's one of the many times you'll be left with your jaw on the ground. The song soon descends into a more head-banging pace, and then is given a keyboard solo. This song is actually the most progressive on the disc, clocking in at 6 minutes. Tha'is one of the negative points on the CD, despite the running time in total, as the song switches moods and tempos even more often than Dream Theater. It feels like a jam session, even though it has a chorus, but despite the way-above-par musicianship and abundance of memorable riffage, the song structure here needs a good deal of editing. ...Red Light In My Eyes, Pt.1. The chorus here is the type of song metalheads drink to (deliriously anthemic and pounding). The verses aren't bad either, with another of the Black-Metal-Speed moments emerging, to absolutely incredible effect once more. Still quite progressive, and with a smorgasbord of riffs to boot, but still not quite gelling.
04. Red Light In My Eyes, Pt.2. A little darker than Pt.1, this song starts with an excerpt from Mozart's Symphony No.25 (classical influences once more). Oh yeah, there's yet another Black-Metal-Speed moment, and even more riffs, but still no real song structure. Thankfully, this marks the last of such tracks. ...Lake Bodom. A song about the axe murders at Lake Bodom in the 60s. Most of this song is superbly structured, and with excellent guitar harmonies (as standard). The best part is the awesome solo, at 2:30... The speed still can't stop, even at the only other song to clock in at 6 minutes. More Black-Metal-Speed? This song is practically full of it, excepting the bridge section, pulsing overtures, which sees the guitars and keyboards working perfectly in tandem.
