The fifth full-length studio album by legendary Finnish Melodic Death Metal band.
The first Children Of Bodom album to feature guitarist Roope Latvala (Stone, Sinergy, ex-Waltari), due to the departure of their original rhythm guitarist Alexander Kuoppala.
Children Of Bodom is a band that many fans of Heavy Metal have mixed feelings towards. They're that type of band that the majority of fans like one part of their career, and dislike the others. They're also a band that has a lot of mixed views when it comes to their albums. The band itself started out very heavy in their music, even with keyboards. However, as the years passed, they started to get softer. And, this change is something that not everybody has enjoyed. "Are You Dead Yet?" is a perfect example of this. It was the band's first album to receive a widespread mixed review. It is an album with mixed pros and cons. The main cons of the album are the sometimes-drifting guitar work of mister Laiho, and the occasional break/weird moment of the song and lyric structure. However, outside those few issues, the album is a great piece of work from the band. It's a shame that some people find a ton of faults with it, as there aren't a lot.
On this album, the band used the drop C tuning, whereas they usually used D standard. The Power Metal influences previously prominent are also greatly reduced on this album, resulting in a more simplistic performance and slower tempos. The keyboards also were dropped lower in the mix, with the guitars maintaining musical dominance. The musician ship of the recording is as great as always. Everything can be heard clearly instrument wise, and the vocals are clean and audible. At times, the guitar work of Laiho can seem to be lost, but these instances are few and far between. The quality of the album is pretty top-notch as well.
"Are You Dead Yet?" will probably be a pretty controversial release among their faithful fan base, but there's no denying that it's easily one of the best Metal releases of 2005! It shows the quintet plowing full steam ahead, as the venom continues to bubble to the surface throughout!!
In 2005, "Are You Dead Yet?" was ranked number 485 in Rock Hard Magazine's book of "The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time".
