Yea, I used to feel that way about Bodom, but I think their other albums are far more consistent. Especially Hatebreeder. Hatebreeder is one of my all-time favorite albums. None of Bodom's other albums even come close to touching it imo.

Eh, coke might be offputting but his view of music is usually spot on as i pretty much enjoy what he does.

Definitely check out Hatebreeder. It puts all their other material to shame. Much more thought put into everything, the riffs are far more interesting and creative. The keyboards add an atmosphere to the music while remaining very tasteful. The vocals are harsher, but I like that. Some may not.

And yes, Follow the Reaper did get a little samey and boring whereas Hatebreeder does not. Every song is CoB at their best. Plus, it's more classically influenced (don't bite my head off, cocaine) than Follow the Reaper so if you like that then that's a plus .

Depends on your definition of classical...
I know some people who consider Jimi Hendrix to be classical music ;)

Quite frankly, those people are idiots.
I know what he's referring to. But I don't think playing sped-up Bach compositions as guitar solos counts as a classical influence.

They're kidding when they say this to me, personally I didn't even know this

playing sped-up Bach compositions as guitar solos

Interesting...
I'm afraid to listen to this album, I actually rather liked HCDT and AYDY, so it stands to reason I would like this but...

So Bach wasn't classical? Sounds like classical influence to me.

Either way, I'm a CoB fan and I listen to all the great composers like Bach, Vivaldi, Rachmaninov, Liszt, and Brahms. I still consider Bodom's earlier stuff highly classically influenced. They definitely use a lot of classical scales.

If I'm in a hip-hop group and I sample a country song does that make me country-influenced? If I'm playing blues-chords, does it make me blues influenced? Sorry but speeding up classical compositions doesn't make you classically influenced, it makes you someone who's taken guitar lessons and can't write original material.
