From now on we are enemies, you and I.
What a great opening statement to a great album. Hatebreeder is Children Of Bodom's second album, and was released two years after their debut release, "Something Wild." However, Hatebreeder is considered to be by many a Children Of Bodom fan their best work. That is because it is riddled with Neo-classical passages, great guitar and keyboard melodies, flawless technique and outstanding musicianship. I have no idea why this album is called Hatebreeder, besides it being the title track, because I love it, and it certainly breeds no hatred within me.

Rating: 8 Their best album A major success from their debut "Something Wild", which i think is their third best behind "Follow the Reaper". They need to go back down this road & sing like he did on this album. He sounds more screaming then screeching

Rating: 6 Maybe you've got to be a guitarist to really appreciate this one. Or a music theory dude. But from a drummer's standpoint the whole album is an excersise in triplets - which get old fast - leading the the whole thing to sound the same most of the way through.

However, the overall the perfomance (technique) is excellent, I will say that. Also, the harpsichord is a great touch.

  I don't like it or appreciate it. But there was definitely a time when I did.

I'm not a huge into music theory, but the guitar leads aren't all that amazing from a musical standpoint. When I first heard the album I was blown away though. And yea, the rhythm is pretty similar throughout the whole album. But triplets and 3/4 in metal can be catchy as hell, which a lot of the reason this album is so popular...as well as having an extraordinary keyboard player.

i dont think you know much about music then. Alexi is called a Virtuoso for a reason.

Rating: 9 This is one of my top ten metal albums of all time.
Nuff said.

Rating: 9 After many years of deciding, I think this to be the band's defining album. Laiho's vocals are crisp and gut-wrenchingly aggressive, and the guitar work works in a similar way, never seeming to overstep the mark set by the other instruments. I also love how the symphonic interludes are used here, they furnish the record to make it sound much more refined than the band's debut.

  Wonderful album, love the song compositions in it. "Bed of Razors", "Hatebreeder" and "Towards Dead End" are just amazing.
Nick K. - 25.06.2013 at 15:18  
  One of the best Albums in the last 15 years. Epic solos, epic riffs, epic Feeling overall.

  I always found it funny how no-one gets the obvious Manowar references in Warheart

Rating: 9 A better production and great songs, made this one another great album.

Rating: 9 Still the pinnacle of their career to this day.

And it has stood the test of time really well.
