Follow The Reaper is the third album by the Finnish melodic death metal band Children of Bodom. The band's style in this release differs from the neo-classical approach of the Hatebreeder album (though much of it still remains), and a sound more heavily influenced by power metal presents itself. It is considered by many of the band's fans to be Children of Bodom's best album.[citation needed] Image File history File links Download high-resolution version (1378x1398, 1748 KB) FTR This image is of a cover of an audio recording, and the copyright for it is most likely owned by either the publisher of the album or the artist(s) which produced the recording or cover artwork...
