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

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

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

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
