Hatebreeder is the second studio album by Finnish metal band Children of Bodom. In it, the band explores a classically influenced sound. It also carries some influence from power metal, in the fast riffs and complex soloing style. This record contains concert favorites such as “Silent Night, Bodom Night” and “Downfall”. The keyboards show more presence on this album, with longer and more elaborate solos than in their previous work. The “Deluxe Edition” was released in 2005 with bonus material. Hatebreeder was also re-released in 2008. The band's self-titled song was re-recorded as the second-to-last track for this album.
