Only 2 songs of the new album, but 6 of HCDR


1. Intro
2. Hate Me
3. Choke Hold
4. Silent Night, Bodom Night
5. Bodom After Midnight
6. Sixpounder
7. Angels Don't Kill
8. Are You Dead Yet?
9. Needled 24-7
10. Deadnight Warrior
11. Follow The Reaper
12. Bodom Beach Terror
13. In Your Face
14. Everytime I Die
15. Hate Crew Deathroll
16. Downfall

review:When I learned Children Of Bodom were headed to Australia, it wasn't exactly a life-defining moment for me but I admit I was really looking forward to finally seeing the Finish fivesome live. After all, it's taken them 8 years to make it to Australia which is a long wait in anyone's books. Upon hearing of the tour I also expected the Sydney show would be held somewhere such as the roundhouse (2000 capacity) but, apparently not. It was booked at the Gaelic Club, with a measly 850 (or less) capacity and suffice to say the first (and then, only) show (scheduled on NRL Grand Finals Night, Sunday October 2nd, 2005) sold out in a matter of days. Later, a second show was added a day earlier (Saturday October 1st, 2005) and the tickets disappeared just as quickly. The reason for this, is that Children Of Bodom are one of those Metal bands whose music transcends the conventional boundaries defautly erected simply by result of being Metal. Instead of being out of reach of those who wouldn't consider themselves metalheads, COB are one of those bands whose appeal is almost universal amongst fans of most forms of alternative music.

There was quite a line-up outside the venue when I arrived. Doors opened at 8pm and no sooner had the last of the people who'd been waiting entering the building than Western Australia's Pathogen took to the stage. As mentioned, Pathogen were the primary reason I had made the trip both nights (not to say that I wasn't looking forward to Children Of Bodom). To my complete surprise, instead of mumblings of “Who?”, “Whats their name?”, “Have you heard them?”, “Can't Children Of Bodom just play?”, “What's a support?” a rowdy bunch alongside me in the front row were chanting for Pathogen. As the set got underway, a very energetic, and receptive crowd really got into the set, many banging-head for the sake of this great new band they were hearing, while an impressive number of fellow Pathogen fans were in sync with every riff, kick and vocal. Tracks played included 'Identity Theft', 'Beyond Repent', 'Bleeding Eye' and a few other songs lifted from the album. As fantastic as they sound on album ('Bloodline' being one of the strongest and tightest Aussie Metal releases I've heard in years), Pathogen were just as good live. Full of energy, lapping up every bit of crowd response and putting on a stellar show.

Pathogen it seems, were not expecting anything close to the reception they got in Sydney, they left the stage to massive cheers and later sold through a massive chunk of the merchandise allocated to the entire tour (in just the first night). Here's hoping that they'll go down as well tomorrow, and be back in Sydney as headliners some time very soon.


Then came the wait (complete with quite a bit of shithouse music) for Children Of Bodom to get down to business – playing the very first show of their 'Are You Dead Yet?' world tour. There was a strong sense of anticipation in the venue as crew checked mics, guitars, drums, lights and sound. It wasn't too long before the intro sample began playing and the guys made their way out to a roaring crowd. Years of experience shone through with a very concise, controlled, entertaining an energetic set, which was (in order):

Hate Me
Choke Hold
Silent Night, Bodom Night
Bodom After Midnight
Six Pounder
Angels Don't Kill
Are You Dead Yet?
Needled 24-7
Deadnight Warrior
Follow The Reaper
Bodom Beach Terror
In Your Face
Everytime I Die
Hate Crew Deathroll
Downfall

There were flamboyant solos including some uber-melodic moments where Alexi and Janna stood side-by-side for some dual instrumental wankery, a little rock star water-spitting, though very little alcohol consumption. Obligatory “Fuck yeah!”'s to the crowd were frequent and the pit, although tame, was hot and sweaty, and went nuts when a couple of favourites were played.

Alexi admitted early on in the night to not realising the new album was out in Australia and made sure fans were aware only a select few songs would be played from it. I was a little disappointed at the seemingly shot set (even if it was 15 songs, it just seemed like an encore of 3 songs was needed to round it off. If all of the tracks were played off CD it would have lasted exactly 61 minutes). The lack of my personal favourite track 'Lake Bodom' was surprising, and I was infinitely puzzled as to why punters simply exited the venue almost instantly after the stage was vacated. What happened to an encore chant? It's not like transport was a problem. The night wound up before 11:30pm. I've heard COB are notorious for dismissing requests for more, but surely it was worth a shot..

At the end of the day (or night, as it were), Children Of Bodom put on a very strong show, definitely value for money and were well worth seeing. Pathogen, for my money, blew them off the stage but remember, they were my primary reason for heading to the gig.

2 nd night set

Here is the 2 nd night setlist (they traded Deadnight Warrior and Follow The reaper for Children Of Bodom and Lake Bodom again):

1. Intro
2. Silent Night, Bodom Night
3. Hate Me
4. Choke Hold
5. Bodom After Midnight
6. Six Pounder
7. Angels Don't Kill
8. Are You Dead Yet?
9. Lake Bodom
10. Needled 24-7
11. Children of Bodom
12. Bodom Beach Terror
13. In Your Face
14. Hate Cew Deathroll
15. Everytime I Die
16. Downfall


review: Torn between watching the NRL grand final (which, to everyone's delight, was won by the Sydney Tigers) at the pub next door and standing in line waiting to be let in, in addition to a little learning-from-last-night care of the venue, the sold-out crowd of diehard Children Of Bodom fans got in to the venue a lot earlier and smoother tonight, and I will say it right off the bat. The fans who were in first, and bought tickets to this, the first-announced Children Of Bodom show got the best deal and superior show.

As Pathogen prepared for their set screams and chants fluctuated from the pit as heads poked out from behind the backstage curtain and at 8:40pm they made their entrance to roars and cheers and got straight into their set. Once again it seemed the crowd really loved what they heard (rightfully so) and the set was similar in length to that of the night before, but did contain a few different tracks. Tonight the crowd of punters were a little more restrained but equally as impressed.

Just after the stroke of 10:00pm Children Of Bodom's intro music began playing and the crowd let rip. As soon as the Fins took to the stage as expected, a very vocal Gaelic Club worked their vocal pipes. The roar only grew as 'Hate Crew' was unleashed and I began to get feelings of Deja Vous.

As I mentioned in my review of the show last night, Children Of Bodom were energetic, professional, tight and enthusiastic, and tonight was no different. Truth be told, they may have been even more into the show this time around. They certainly got a pleasant introduction to Aussie crowds last night and lapped up every minute tonight.

I was disappointed that last night's set was void of 'Lake Bodom' (even if the band haven't played the track for some time) but thank fuck – it was played tonight and it got one hell of a reaction.

They have lost touch of their old school badassness that made them so amazing......the "downfall" which began with FTR is accelerating rapidly Too fucking bad.

LONG LIVE SOMETHING WILD AND HATEBREEDER, TRUE BODOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay first off that set is fucking HORRIBLE. Where is ' Living Dead Beat ' and ' Bastards Of Bodom ' off the new album? I thought they let the fans help pick the set? If so the fans really let me down.

its an ok set.....to short, and missing a few songs . . .

9 songs there, I think are stellar, the other 8 (i wont count the intro), are OK Bodom songs. This is an okay setlist. But it's too short.

That's your taste buddy, Something Wild is very ordinary imho (exeption of Lake Bodom & Touch Like Angel Of Death)

And in my taste, HCDR is simply a fucking masterpiece, nothing less.




Cheers !!
