3.0 goodFernando Alves STAFF | March 9th 19

I don't share the general enthusiasm for this album, sure it has its good moments and the band's more direct and melodic approach may appeal to the masses, but I find the songwriting too generic.

This is what has to be expected by COB: a good, solid album, definitely. But all in all, COB used to do these things already better in the past.

It should probably surprise no one that a band like Children of Bodom has had a very up and down career in the 20 years since the release of their masterpiece 'Hatebreeder' in 1999. While the band has had a steady lineup (Laiho and Warman being the key players) their sound has wavered as the band found the metal limelight after the release of Hatecrew Deathroll. There were obvious attempts to tune the sound to the masses but despite overall albums being lackluster there were always good tracks here and there and Bodom pushed forth with their signature melodic death metal sound. Here we are in 2019 and Bodom has released their best work in 16 years. It seems like Alexi has found his knack for dynamic, catchy songwriting and both Janne and Alexi have gotten back to their ways harmonizing keyboard and guitar melodies successfully. Hexed has variety from the blisteringly fast 'Kick in a Spleen' to the groovy, downtempo 'Hectate's Nightmare'. The songs are catchy and addicting. Great riffs all around, aforementioned sweet harmonies, the solos you have come to expect from Laiho and Warman and some throwback Bodom elements like the mob shouted choruses. As someone who listened to Bodom's first four albums 100s of times each it seemed like the band had chased fame a bit too much but boy is it sweet to see them back playing into their strengths once again.

It's cool that the Finns deliver solid albums up to this day, but truth is they used to do it with way more edge during their heyday/early days.

4.5 superbMitch | March 10th 19

I had never given this band a listen, but Nuclear Blast was really pushing them, so I gave them a shot. I can now safely say I'm a fan.

3.5 greatRobinanimate | March 26th 21

Best release since Hate Crew Deathroll, and probably the third best album Children of Bodom ever made.

way better than weak ass new behemoth

Bump

4.5 superbNordicNorth | March 8th 19

Their best album since AYDY, HOB comes close but this edges it on the number of competent riffs, catchy hooks, their best use of keyboards in years and great assortment of solos. Enjoyed every track on this immensely.

3.5 greatKalthoreil | March 8th 19

Good album starting right at the first second by hitting you in the face, and doesn't stop doing so until the end. It may be a little redundant but heh, it's Children of Bodom. Also, nothing to do with the music, but I'm not a fond of the cover

Bump

4.0 excellentNazzadan | March 8th 19

Leaving at a 4 for now after 2 spins, definitely better than Worship Chaos and maybe on par with
Halo of Blood

Bump

4.0 excellentYuriZakhaev | March 8th 19

Jams hard, excellently produced, and is definitely what we should've got after Halo of Blood.
