Overview

Black metal with the happiest keyboards the genre has ever seen, yet still uncompromisingly brutal. "Children of Decadence" could be Emerson, Lake & Palmer, for the love of Beelzebub; such is the level of complexity and prominence of synthesizers. The frightening Finnish fivesome does a nice job of mixing up tempos on this, the band's third studio disc, and manages to keep up the intensity in spite of (or maybe because of) the aural auditory mood swings. You won't even recognize the bonus track cover "Hellion," and it doesn't even matter. [Fontana Universal's 2008 edition included two bonus tracks.]

I thought that the heaviest band in the world was Metallica. But earlier this year I was proven dead wrong. Metallica doesn't even amount to how great C.o.B is. The keyboards are haunting and are one the best I've ever heard. The guitar is outstanding with a mix of finger tapping solos to hardcore riffs. Alexi Laiho's screaming/ deep throaty voice completes the combination of the screaming guitars and keyboards. If your looking for a good melodic metal band ,then look no further. Children of Bodom is here to stay.
