Wow! What is this? I have to take a look at the cover first... No, this is not the new CHILDREN OF BODOM, but THRONE OF CHAOS, but still they, too are from Finland...
Mid-paced to double-bass-driven Heavy Metal with super-melodic guitars and a really harsh voice, just like we love to hear from Alexi Laiho and his consorts, is what we get here, too.
True, they are pretty close to the Bodom-children, but who cares? Many Black Metal-bands sound similar, many Power Metal-bands even identical.
This album has some great songs, heavy, melodic, just like it should be. Period.
To make things short: Who cannot wait for COB's new album, should take "Menace And Prayer", you won't find a better replacement anywhere near!
