Children Of Bodom Albums: Worst to First
10Children of Bodom
Blooddrunk


The drop in quality from their first 5 albums to this is simply jarring. This is easily the closest the band has ever been to being mediocre.

Grade: D
Best Track: Banned From Heaven
9Children of Bodom
Relentless Reckless Forever


A huge step above Blooddrunk, but still is nowhere near the best they can do.

Grade: C
Best Track: Was It Worth It?
8Children of Bodom
Something Wild


While an enjoyable debut effort, the band still had a few kinks in their formula to work out before they could release something great.

Grade: C+
Best Track: Lake Bodom
7Children of Bodom
Are You Dead Yet?


'Are You Dead Yet?' is by no means a bad record, but after coming off the winning streak COB had been on for the past 6 years, it is a bit of a disappointment.

Grade: B
Best Track: Living Dead Beat
6Children of Bodom
I Worship Chaos


I find this to be the most underrated album in COB's discography. It is a minor step down in quality from Halo Of Blood, but personally, I had more fun with this one and find myself listening to it more often than it's predecessor.

Grade: B
Best Track: My Bodom (I Am the Only One)
5Children of Bodom
Halo of Blood


After two lackluster releases, COB did a complete 180 and put out one of the finest albums of their latter day career. A solid return to form, and for my money, the heaviest album of their career.

Grade: B+
Best Track: All Twisted
4Children of Bodom
Hatebreeder


Their first truly great album, and the one where they discovered their signature sound. It pains me to put it this low, but there are 3 more I enjoy slightly more.

Grade: A-
Best Track: Hatebreeder
3Children of Bodom
Hexed


I went into Hexed completely unsure what I was getting myself into, seeing as how it was the first Children of Bodom album I had ever listened to. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. My current album of 2019.

Grade: A
Best Track: Hecate's Nightmare
2Children of Bodom
Hate Crew Deathroll


For this one, they simplified their formula and made it a little more accessible, and it really worked wonders for them. While I don't think it's their best musically, it is probably my personal favorite, and the one I revisit the most.

Grade: A
Best Track: Angels Don't Kill
1Children of Bodom
Follow the Reaper


Probably not shocking anybody with my #1 pick, but it really is their strongest album overall. Every track on here slaps, and slaps hard. This is the record that every COB release should be compared to.

Grade: A+
Best Track: Everytime I Die
