There has always been a controversy in black metal circles as to whether Finland's Children of Bodom really is such a band. While serious black-metalheads may need to debate the validity of nomenclature, any and all fans of heavy music will be blown away by the undeniably powerful union of black metal's intensity and the dexterity and proggy arrangements present on their debut, SOMETHING WILD. This reissue contains the original seismic blast in its entirety with two bonus tracks--"Silent Scream" and "Don't Stop at the Top."
