Children Of Bodom – Smile Pretty For The Devil | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! It’s Friday once more, and as always we’re chilling in the studio working away at stuff. It’s been a few months since we’ve tackled a Children Of Bodom song, so today we’re gonna be ripping through their tune Smile Pretty For The Devil, off their Blooddrunk album. Believe it or not, this was actually the first album of theirs I purchased back in the day. Of course I had heard of Bodom a few years before this album had dropped, but this was definitely my first physical copy of their music. I’ve still got that deluxe album kicking around on the shelves somewhere, might have to check out that bonus content crap sometime again soon.

For a rather short song, (clocking in at under 4 minutes) this damn tune is freaking powerful and bloody difficult. I did plan on doing two guitar tracks for this video, but time simply did not allow for it. Even this single pass recording has a few flubs in it I’m not too happy about, especially towards the end during the melodic outro. I think some day down the line this will be a song I revisit, maybe with a full band or something like that.

As always, if ya dig what you see then head over to the official YouTube channel and subscribe to keep up with all the good stuff! I’m off to put my hand in ice because of this bloody song now.
