Inspired by the European power metal thread, Impaled Nazarene's Nihil, and an old interview with Chuck Schuldiner, where he expressed his enthusiasm for Children of Bodom's debut album, Something Wild. I have never actually heard this much-maligned band, as far as I am aware, so I am going into this with an open mind. So, do they still suck now that major-key Iron Maiden melodies are back in vogue?

Abominable band, I remember back in the days - at least in my area - only full blown poseurs and chicks who thought Alexi Lahio was "hot" listened to this crap.

I bought, or was sold, the debut album a year ago at a record fair. For 20 years I had dodged the band successfully, but of course I remember hearing stuff from the first album when it came out.

Something Wild is kind of like a softer power metal Dissection. Even Laiho's stage presence was pure Nödtveidt. I can't stand the "yeah yeah wow!" vocal style much, and the whole family friendly child metal thing is insurmountable. There are good riffs, some neat neoclassical ideas and roughed up a little it could have been a fine melodic death metal album. Knowing what the average CoB fan is around here always gave me all the more reason to keep away.

This, same here, we were young kids back then when the first came out already heavily into extreme metal and just laughed on anybody who listened to them, guess it didnt change in the past 20 years.

Is this band still a thing? Gave them a try in my young impressionable days and they didn't have much staying power. I used to think they pretty much embodied the worst facets of popular Finnish metal but viewing those Beast in Black videos in another thread made me reconsider.

From what I remember having been exposed to it as a youth, this band sucks.

This band practically embodies every single thing that is ridiculous in mainstream metal.

Not bad as far as melodic death metal goes, but I can live without it and stick with my Rhapsody & White Skull tapes. Forgettable band if I consider all of their output, especially the more recent ones. Something Wild is okay-ish, but that's it I guess. I'd choose any Luca Turilli or Lost Horizon album over anything this band ever came out with.
