Children of Bodom New Album

Children of Bodom's new album Relentless, Reckless Forever provides excellent COB signature sound consisting of brutal riffs, melodic keyboards and excellent fretwork. Not one of my favorite COB album but it does get me through my brutal gym workouts.  The intro riff to the song "Ugly" resembles a intro riffs produced by Maalmsteem.  On Guitar Doodler's brutality rate Scale (1-5) I give it a 4.5.  I do recommend this album for anyone's death metal collection as well as those that appreciate good musicianship without getting hung up on the lyrics.

Not So Great Air Guitar Moment

When I was a young lad I remember jumping up and down on my bed playing air guitar to Detroit Rock City. I got caught up in the moment that I failed to be aware of my surrounding. I did one high jump forward to land on the floor for my finale, I was for the shock of my life when I met the ceiling fan.  I did more damage to both the ceiling fan (thank God it was off)and my ego since I had friends in the house. As for the ceiling fan I busted a blade, tried to fix it with Elmer's glue with no success. My cousin and I removed all the remaining blades.  My poor dad never noticed it; three months later we moved.
