Best Children of Bodom Albums

The Top Ten

1 Follow the Reaper

Brilliant album from front to back, top-notch production and the quality of instrumentation especially the solos are very memorable...Great piece, very accessible and mainstream but at the same time will be embraced by any ardent fan of Melo Death or Death Metal. - Vip3r

All of the songs are hits. This is the CD that took Children of Bodom to the next level.

Every track is superb. From the energetic introduction that is "Follow the Reaper" to the epic climax "every time I Die" and the unstoppable, conclusive solo of "Kissing the Shadows", this album is definitely Bodom at their best. Select tracks from other albums are almost as amazing, but as a whole Follow the Reaper is mind-blowing from beginning to end. Best album ever.

Best album with sick musics like Hate me, Children of Decadence, Kissing the Shadows and Follow the Reaper. Really awesome =)

2 Hatebreeder

Hatebreeder bros
Follow the reaper is more of the same (that does not mean its bad, rather equally good)
But Hatebreeder is the CoB milestone in terms of their musicianship. Again, follow the reaper is re-assertion of Hatebreeder's achievement.
The only other album I may consider greater than Hatebreeder is Hate Crew Deathroll.

This is what made me love the band - Mbhsepiphoneplayer

We can all say that COB make very very good albums. Hard to choose a number one. If I could I would have all of them at 1. They are all so amazing from Alexi's amazing guitar, vocals and fantastic song writing skills to Janne's incredible pianist skills.

WAY better than hate crew deathroll, these songs are all excellent! Each and every one of them

3 Hate Crew Deathroll

Every song is perfect. From the inspired keyboard on needled 24/7 to the swagger of sixpounder. The brilliance of hate crew deathroll and the melodic death anthem which is angels don't kill. A true cob classic

Has some of Bodoms best known songs in it like Angels don't kill, Needled 24/7, bodom beach terror and sixpounder - wolphert

Love every bit of music given to their Fans by them. Specially angels don't kill and hate crew deathroll!

Needled 24/7, Angels don't kill, Hate crew deathroll. Awesome!

4 Something Wild

I never liked this album but after one day this album was the which I couldn't get out of my mind and I an still helpless best album for me

Masterpiece of the Finnish Metal. Back in the days when COB had their own sound and atmosphere. Quintessence of Neoclassic, Black, Power and Melodic Death Metal! I loved this keyboard and vocals, everything in this album is generating an occult atmosphere.
"Lake Bodom" is my favorite song by far, and it's got me into Metal.

As a black metal fan I love the intensity and darkness of this album! It is less power metal(ish) than all the other albums. The keyboard stands out a lot more (which is great) and Alexi's vocals on this one are by far the best (and the most black metal! ). It sounds like a really dark, technical, groovy, neoclassical, melodic black/death metal hybrid (I don't really know how to describe it). To me this is one of their best (I can't believe Alexi likes this one the least just because he copied his idol). By the way, Deadnight Warrior is an amazing opening song! - metalfan1999

Funny, I know cob for more then 3 years.
Every day or a week or so. I discover something new.
Even today.

This album is so melodic, it is stuck in my head for ever. I don't need an mp3 player anymore.

5 Are You Dead Yet

Never actually mentioned as Children of Bodom's best album. I think this really is the best - just look at the three first tracks, simply brilliant songs. In addition to them, singles In Your Face and Trashed, Lost & Strungout it already makes a great album. Even the album fillers are very good. Overall, these songs create amazing experience while listening the whole album through.

I really really really really really really really really love the title track and the entire album matches the power and devotion in this album. Why isn't this in the top 3!

Are you dead yet, in your face, punch me I bleed, thrashed lost and strungout are all really good songs there is probably only 1,2 other albums with this many good songs in it in my opinion. This should be number 1.

In my opinion AYDY and Hate Crew Deathroll are by far their best albums. Each song is totally awesome, true melodic sound, incredible solos, I can listen to it everyday.

6 Halo of Blood

This is the only good album in 2013. You know 2013 really sucks in music. But Halo Of Blood is the only good one!

Reviving Children of Bodom after years of what people thought brought on their worst material

This album is great, it's bring the old CoB back - razors15

Oldschool without sounding old! The perfect Melodic Death dosis, and clearly on of their bests!

7 I Worship Chaos

I Worship Chaos is better than Halo of Blood, Blooddrunk, Relentless Reckless Forever and Are You Dead Yet

All for Nothing and Prayer for the Afflicted are masterpieces! - wolphert

Best Bodom album since Hate Crew Deathroll - Frantic713

Old CoB is strong with this one!

8 Relentless Reckless Forever

Not my funeral is the only song that I dig from this album honestly cob WORST ALBUM in my opinion

This album is too much sports advertissing I don't know why lol! Its not the actual beats of Children Of Bodom and songs are really different. It feels like is Metallica in Load, RELoad, St. Anger albums, the same thing.

9 Blooddrunk

Not their worst not their best I like the title track, one day you will cry, and tie my rope besides that I don't really like this album that much

10 Hexed

The problem with new albums there always lower than they should be hopefully it will get above Children of Bodom's below average albums soon should at least be number 5 if not higher - germshep24

This happened to be one of their best albums and I'm very happy. - Metal_Treasure

Should be number 4 or 3 not 12

Should be 4th
by the way awesome album. If you like old cob then you'll like this. Or if you like new cob you'll also like this. Cob knocked it out of the park on this album. It's better than Something Wild, Bloodrunk, Rentless Reckless Forever, Halo of Blood, and I Worship Chaos. It does have it's odd moments but it works and it's awesome. 10/10 rating without a doubt.
