    Agreed. The 3rd song is a cover too, but hopefully it'll be a good one. Not very familiar with Dissection so don't really know what to expect.
    I also pre-ordered (FYI levykauppa äx / recordstore X sells it cheaper than the "official" merch store)

    My guess is that everything was ready before his passing. And if the full album was already written, I hope it gets recorded and released in some form someday...

    It's gonna be awesome and sad at the same time \m/ Last music from Alexi unless Kim releases that Sinergy album somehow.
    Alexi has borrowed a little from Dissection before.

    And I never realized it before, but the intro is really similar to Hatebreeder.

    Sounds like a weird mix of Hatebreeder and the intro on this song.



    Also, I never realised the intro of Deadnight Warrior sampled the original IT movie. I just rewatched it the other day and was like holy shit.

    You didn't realize that? I noticed the first time I heard the song. Tim Curry gave it away.

    AFAIK Lil' Bloodred Ridin' Hood is pretty much the only song that wasn't written by Alexi though, it's credited to Alexander Kuoppala. (Ah, it has both names on it... Oh well) The melody is almost identical though.

    But yeah I can definitely tell that CoB took influences from Dissection. Sounds like I need to check them out a bit more.

    Update: first spin of the Storm of the Light's Bane album, and damn, this is some great stuff. CoB's early albums are like a direct continuation of this, with slightly less black metal influences.

    Storm of the Light's Bane is one of the best metal albums ever.

    Not sure if you guys have heard of Parasite Inc. but they are a German Melodic Death Metal band and they have a COB vibe--and I think the singer/guitarist is inspired by Alexi

    This first song has a Hate Crew Death Roll-vibe to it:

    Eh... I'll stick to COB, rather than listen to their xerox'd copies.

    haha, ya man, it's pretty blatant, but it scratches a "new" itch for the time being, but nothing is better than the OG!

    I can definitely hear the influence. Why does the singer look like he’s LARPing Phil Labonte though?

    That's what happens when you go bald and don't embrace it well. You become baseball hat man, and can't leave the house without it. Cool song though \m/

    This is probably from the lost album written jointly by CoB and In Flames halfway through HCDR and Are You Dead Yet?

    Jokes aside, I actually dig it. It definitely scratches the itch. But CoB is CoB!

    On paper it's all good but I can't help but feel that the "magic" is missing. They've got the HCDR/AYDY sound down, but the stuff just feels generic. It's like they've built a song out of CoB's jigsaw pieces but when the puzzle was finished the picture didn't represent anything.

    I like it in it's own way. Yes, it is similar to CoB, but different enough to where I could put it on and listen to it. That second song, "In the Dark" is really cool.

    Idk. There was an era where a ton of bands all had that CoB style sound. It's honestly just become almost an entire style of melodeath.

    Examples of what I mean. Each of them pretty similar but still different in their own way.

    If think that only norther is somewhat similar to cob and only on two first albums. Kalmah had a distinct "swampmetal" style, etos is somewhat slower and more "soft" sounding than cob, sentenced is nothing like cob (both old Jarva era and newer Laihiala era) and that trooper cover is just weird pick for an example of sentenced's style. :)

    But yeah, they're all finnish metal and melodic...

    I left that Trooper cover there because back in the days of bearshare, limeware, and whatever other downloading service everyone thought that cover was by Children of Bodom.

    Some Japanese COB bands. There are probably a ton more given COB's popularity in Japan, but finding them is beyond my abilities. BSC were the best known one since they recorded with Anssi Kippo.

    Just like Dispatched's final countdown cover... It was labeled as bodom and everyone and their mother thought it was bodom, even though it didn't sound like bodom. The good old days of kazaa and dc++! :D

    Oh man :lol: All the stuff was so mislabeled back then, you could never rely on the filenames. There was also a Hopeanuoli (Silver Fang) theme song cover that said CoB on it, I think it may have been by Whispered? No-one knew back then though...
