Children of Bodom

Finland's Children of Bodom tempered their full-frontal assault with insanely fast neoclassical keyboards on the mini-album Something Wild (1997). The guitar melodies of Alexi Laiho highlighted Hatebreeder (1999) and Follow the Reaper (2001). The quality of their albums, however, declined rapidly starting with Hate Crew Deathroll (2003) and reaching a nadir on Are You Dead Yet (2005) and Blooddrunk (2008), albums sabotaged by poor song-writing and a trivial take on the speed-metal genre.

This new stage led to the melodic classic-sounding hard-rock of Relentless, Reckless Forever (2011), with Not My Funeral and Was It Worth It? and the usual assetts (notably keyboardist Janne Wirman) and liabilities (vocalist Alexi Laiho).
