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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fathers of Unbelievable Music Jan. 3 2003
By sliphsc
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neoclassical That Isn't Boring ! Sept. 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
I can never express in words how much I love CHILDREN OF BODOM. They, unlike anyone else, incorporate constant classical music and never slow down. Blasting us back and forth with guitar solos and occasional keyboarding solos. Yes, it is Death Metal, not for the weak, but it's not as heavy and disgusting as a lot of DM bands can be. Don't get me wrong, I do like Cannibal Corpse and Obituary.
Some Heavy Metal fans shy away from bands who use keyboarding, but COB doesn't go too far with it and either keeps it in the background or plays it back and forth with even more triumphant guitar solos. Whereas some bands do overuse and make you say, why wasn't that on guitar ?
Sorry to say that a lot of neoclassical artists have a lot of boring music, but they just don't keep up the speed or power. Gary Hoey bores me with all his bluesy songs, Satriani and Malmsteen bore me with thier pathetic vocals and slower bits. Cacophony and some parts of older Metallica were the only other bands I've heard that really rock with NC, but not Nearly like my favorite band of all...

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute must for any Metal collection
Children have captured something all their own. A sound which no other band has. Combing gutteral growls, shredding guitar, and a hammering rythym section, this cd is amazing. Read more
