Best Children of Bodom Albums

The Top Ten
1 Follow the Reaper

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.

I used to listen some songs from this album unless last week. I started follow the reaper which is the first song of the album and start working on my pc, thanks to auto play I've poisoned. I can't get myself out of the album. It's keep playing and I can't move on. I check this website whether it's only me or is there anyone else thinks like me. I'm satisfied now. This album is cursed stay away!

2 Hatebreeder

Hard pick between this and Follow the Reaper, but I consider this their best because they sound truely unique on this one. Follow the reaper is an amazing album too, but already has audible tiny touches of the "new american metal" which CoB developed into at that point. Everything about Hatebreeder is outstanding. Amazing compositions, Malmsteen-ish shreds, hooks you will never forget.

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.

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

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 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.

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.

5 Something Wild

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!

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!

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

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

7 I Worship Chaos

This is a really good album. I think it is better than Blooddrunk, Halo of Blood, but not as good as the early stuffz. I like it.

All for Nothing and Prayer for the Afflicted are masterpieces!

1. Hate Crew Deathroll
2. Fallow the Reaper
3. Downfall
4. I worship Chaos

8 Hexed

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.

Not their best, but is a beautiful album worth listening in the cob collection. The real problem here is that the first part is very intense with very structured songs, the second one is a little bit off, but still good.
Overall, the did a masterpeace!

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 Relentless Reckless Forever

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.

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