Children Of Bodom - Bodom After Midnight
Genres: Melodic Death Metal Release Date: 12/1/2012
Ah, Children Of Bodom. My earliest foray into "extreme" metal. CoB has all the trappings of a power metal band (speedy and with plenty of keyboard solos) but also features punky screamed vocals. What better way to acclimate the weathered 15-year-old Rhapsody fan to the harsher climes of black and death metal? It took me seven years to make a simfile for this band, partially because they have been stepped to death, but mostly because I don't really like them all that much. Still, their earlier albums are pretty good and catchy, if a little childish.

At 134 BPM, the difficulty in this file stems not from the speed, but the complexity of the notes. To be honest, they aren't that complex, so this file is fairly easy. If you can handle sixteenth-note jacks and a few thirty-second-note runs at that speed, then you should be fine.

This is another file with hand-drawn background art. It sucks but you can't blame a guy for trying. Have fun dudes!
