Biting at the heels of 'Something Wild,' COB's debut release, 'Hatebreeder arrived full force and solidified the band's genre-blurring wall of sound that would continue up until 'Hate Crew Deathroll.' The album is a scorching example of superhuman musical intensity, speed and craftsmanship which strong-arms Black Metal, Death Metal, Thrash and 80s Hair Metal into one technically precise classic.

'Warheart' kicks things off with the band boasting their legendary talents via unbelievable precision and skill. Janne Wirman's keyboards flow neoclassically in contrast to Alexi Laiho's signature guitar solos, adding in hooks and switchups almost effortlessly. 'Silent Night, Bodom Night' is a more straightforward head thrasher permeated with Jaska Raatikainen's machine gun double-kick drum work which alternates between unrelenting intensity and a standard 4/4 chugging bridge which proves that these boys love to rock. 'Hatebreeder' flies straight back into sonic insanity with odd time changes and a blistering, feverish pace led by Alexander Kuoppala's crunching rhythm guitar. The song soon soars into a hook filled chorus that gives the listener time to breathe before building up to an explosive instrumental section. 'Bed of Razors' slows down the album a bit to focus on a standard chug-fest, which paves the way for the concert staple 'Towards Dead End,' led by Laiho's finely tuned guitar soloing. It doesn't stay down long, though. 'Black Widow' and 'Wrath Within' are skin-melting metal nukes which assault the auditory senses with unheard-of musicianship. The highlight of the album is definitely 'Children of Bodom,' an obvious ode to the band's namesake which sounds like 80s Hair Metal on PCP. It's an incredible track.

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.

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.
