Children Of Bodom - Something Wild (1998) Retail CD
Death Metal/ Black Metal
The debut album from Children Of Bodom is a terrific, if a little rough around the edges, start for a band who would later to go on to record the outstanding 'Hatebreeder' and the rather mediocre 'Follow The Reaper', as well as one of the best live albums I've ever heard. Opening track "Deadnight Warrior", one of my favorite Bodom tracks, kicks in with an excellent riff and those patented orchestral keyboard hits that that the band use so often. Also a highlight from the aforementioned live album ('Tokyo Warhearts') the track kicks off the bands first studio album with style - if you aren't hookedmore… by the end of that song, you probably never will be.If you aren't already familiar with the band's sound, I'll attempt to explain - the band are a heavy mixture of Power Metal, Melodic Death and neo-classical-isms. Lead guitartist/vocalist and songwriter Alexi "Wildchild" Laiho is a big fan of classical composers such as Mozart, and also has a love for 80's cheese-merchants W.A.S.P and the like. The classical influence shows in both the keyboards (which sometimes descend into widdly harpsichord runs) and the over the top, fast guitar solos. Many a chord progression is neo-classical in nature. Combine this with a heaviness and tone somewhat akin to Melodic Death Metal and blackened vocals and hillariously bad lyrics and you should have a good idea of what the band are like. Whilst later material erred towards a stronger, cheesier Power Metal influence, their debut album is most definately the darkest and arguably heaviest of the lot.Whilst only seven songs long, this unfortunately short album contains it's own share of Bodom classics that remain fan favorites to this day. As well as the already mentioned "Deadnight Warrior", it also includes the track that got me hooked to Children Of Bodom in the first place, "Lake Bodom" and the excellent two-part epic "Red Light In My Eyes".Whilst 'Hatebreeder' is arguably the bands best work, and probably a better introduction to the band if you are new to them, 'Something Wild' is also a solid album and a great debut which I would definately reccomend. Personally, I was disappointed with their third and most recent effort 'Follow The Reaper' which rarely gets a spin these days, but I will always have room in my stereo for this album.
