Nightwish and COB are the most popular Finnish bands, right? Easy poll: Nightwish OR Children Of Bodom.

My choice is Children Of Bodom for two reasons: first, I always preferred Extreme Metal, and second, I'm disappointed by most of Nightwish's stuff after Wishmaster. And Anette Olzon's voice is... well, you know exactly how it sounds.

These 2 bands have nothing to do with eachother... really, nothing....

I agree. But if I had to choose Bodom because the guitarist in CoB is sick. Nightwish is good too but it's hard to compare the 2 bands.

Nightwish for me. I don't really like CoB though I know that they are better musicians. I just like nightwish music better.

Whoever created this poll - are you serious?? There's no comparison between these two bands. I like COB, but Nightwish is SO much better. There really is no contest here.

I agree, this is a stupid poll. Both bands are nothing like each other...

But, the decision is easy for me, as I don't like symphonic metal with female vocals, and COB are awesome. So it's COB for me!

COB all the way on this one, I have heard both bands quite a bit and COB plays with more energy. I have some friends who are Nightwish fans and I could never understand how they could get into them. They are not that great. COB may not write anything too good these days but their first four albums are pretty good, and enough for me to vote for them over Nightwish any day of the week.

CoB are a horribly awful band - I struggle to sit through a track. And though I hardly listen to Nightwish these days (I used to, a lot), they get my vote easily.

This is a really difficult comparison for two very different bands. But I went with COB as they were one of the first heavier bands I had gotten into after the "gateway" bands (Maiden, Sabbath, etc.)

Can people read the first post? A comparison between these two isn't weird at all. They are Finland's most popular Metal bands, which one do you prefer? Hell, these guys even shared a single back in the days.

I really cant seem to figure out the purpose of this thread.. its like comparing the colour red with potatoes lol.
But since Im here..
CoB = good melodies, good early riffs, great solos, awful vocals.
Nightwish = the best keyboard works, revolutionary symphonic metal, Marco's beard. So Im going for Nightwish.

They're too different from each other to compare like that.I think cob has better musicians but nightwish is better written. Like the lyrics and melodies I mean. And the full out orchestras are pretty good too. Idk I like them both a lot, Finland is awesome in the music department:banger:

I agree. Toumas is a visionary and is very passionate about his music. It seems that that kind of thing is missing from COB music. I mean, they've essentially released the same album seven times. Sure, they have some kick-ass riffs in their music, but it's just kinda like they're recycling their albums with each new release. Nightwish has progressed... for better or for worse. And by the looks of it, Nightwish should be releasing a mostly acoustic album in the near future... Or at least I hope so.

Currently Nightwish is the better band for me. They've gotten better with each album in my opinion, and I definitely prefer Anette over Tarja. Children of Bodom started going downhill after Hate Crew Deathroll. All the albums leading up to it were great in my opinion. Hate Crew Deathroll was good, and the two albums afterwards were just "meh." So yeah, currently Nightwish.

Neither. if this is simply the "ultimate in Finnish metal", well, i'd rather slash my wrists (up the veins, none of this lateral pussy draw attention to myself shit) than listen to either.

speaking of finnish and slashing wrists...

at least there is plenty of fantastic finnish shit to listen to without having to subject oneself to Nightchildren of Wishdom.

One is extreme power, the other is symphonic metal. Still, I prefer extreme genres, so Children of Bodom for me. Even still, I'm not a big fan of CoB.

Not quite. NW is symphonic power metal; it's a big difference

And I really wouldn't call CoB any more extreme than NW, other than harsh vocals.

Well, comparatively, CoB aren't extreme at all, but I prefer their sound over Nightwish's.

Nightwish has my vote for the following reasons:

a) Tuomas is a superior songwriter
b) Marco is a superior vocalist
c) Nightwish's lyrics go beyond: I don't give a flying **** mother******
d) Nightwish has covered Gary Moore, CoB has covered Britney Spears.

Yes, it is an important difference. Totally agree
Anyway I dont't like CoB or Nightwish too much. When finnish metal, then Insomnium and Amorphis rock.

I love both. At first I preferred Nightwish but now im more of a bodom fan. Hard to compare them. Nightwish have more meaningful songs and CoB songs are extremely fast and shreadtastic
