I think I speak for the majority of COB fans when I say that this album shows the band returning to their roots. Whilst none of the songs here still manage to match the quality on COB's first three albums, I found every one to be very enjoyable. In particular I loved how well orchestrated the keyboards were with the rhythm section, making songs such as the title track, 'Transference' and 'Bodom blue moon' all the more consistent and excellent. A couple of songs (namely 'The days are numbered' and 'Damage beyond repair') disappinted me a little, but not enough to make this whole album any worse.

Eh I don't know, sure this is the best thing they've done in a decade but it's still about half as good as hatebreeder

Probably. This is good, but I haven't spun it in quite a while, and I don't really feel the need to either. One of those albums that I can dig when it comes up on rotation, but will not grant special listening time to.

I still think Hatebreeder had a darker tone, this one has the riff ideas from recent albums, but got rid of the mainstream qualities. Hatebreeder IS darker, it does not just feel darker. This still has such a scooped mid-tone, leaving everything feeling so bright. Just my opinion.

Good review, good effort Bodom.

Digging: He Is Legend - Heavy Fruit

I really want to like this but it's just recycled or half-baked thrash riffs with a few outstanding moments. They're just not catchy anymore and it hurts

By no means is this album a 4.5. Half the album is a snoozefest and the other half is just good, not great.

I understand that their sound is probably distinguishable from a lot of other bands in the genre, but distinguishable is not necessarily good.

Bodom are actually an awesome and very talented band, but they've done nothing legendary since Hatebreeder and nothing great since Hate Crew Deathroll.
