Children Of Bodom
Are you dead yet?
A mixed bag of speed metal, melodic death metal and power metal from Finland. Throat-shredding, distorted vocals, screaming guitars and precision drumming combine to make a full-on assault on your senses. There's a certain rock 'n' roll vibe underpinning the whole thing and preventing it from descending into unlistenable roar, but with tracks entitled Living Dead Beat, Punch Me I Bleed and Bastards of Bodom, you can pretty much guess that it's not for the feint hearted. Remember your ear protectors.
