Great music, the lyrics on the other hand aren't so good. Lyrically these boys are trying WAY too hard to be evil and have crossed the line into the world of lyrical irrelevance. Call me crazy but these songs about Satan just chap my ass. There's little or no poetry or art to their lyrics. And unlike other black metal bands like Darkthrone, Emperor or especially Burzum, the music just doesn't fit the lyrical content. I get the idea that they're praising satan not because they actually believe anthing, but for shock value. And hey if you play black metal you're supposed to sing about satan, how tired. At least when Slayer sings Lucifer's praises they sound convincing.
OK that said, the music on Enthrone Darkness Triumphant absolutely rocks. Its much better than the slight lyrics. Good use of keyboards, which I usually am suspicious of in metal, coupled with aggressive guitar and dynamic song writing. Every song has memorable and oftimes insane riffs and melodies. This is some harmonically interesting and diverse music. There's dissonance, consonance and dynamic tension to be found in every song. "Spellbound by the Devil" (oh crap, more satan) has an excellent use of mournful yet epic keyboards ranging in sound from pipe organ to sampled chorus. There are lots of stops and starts and complex yet engaging shifts in tempo and mood, all in one song.
Dimmu Borgir write some very compelling, dark and yet beautiful music that can really take you out of yourself. I'm not a big fan of symphonic black metal but this is certainly one of the most interesting metal releases of 1997 and well worth getting. Just ditch the satan cliches next time OK?

3.0 out of 5 stars the cliche band at thier best June 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
contrary of every other cd this band has put out, this is the one I can stand the most. this is your cliche satanistic poser black metal band, nothing more. putting a band like emperor on thier heros list, and in mind. Dimmu borgir, tries to make thier own sound. This is the plain ridden with crap, and still this is there best album they came up with. hail to the next band that will play/tour with slipknot, linkin park, and manson mainstream. If you want to get into actuall black metal. go somewhere else. I'll buy this cd for "mourning palace" alone -- everyone has to take a cr*p every now and then!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest black metal release, EVER. June 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
Evil flows thoughout this album, and Satan's majesty and power are revealed. What's great about this album is the shift from the chaotic to the more atmoshperic slower songs. Shagrath's voice is also the most agressive, dark, and scary on this record. Favorite song: Relinquishment Of Spirt And Flesh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Converter May 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the fact that this is the best Dimmu CD along with Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia. I have listerned to black metal for a couple of years now and this isn't really as heavy as the other band's you can find. I strongly recommend this CD to any nu-metal listerners out there. It's a good converting album.
This is good melodic black metal, but if you want proper Norwegian/Swedish black metal, then Ulver, Emperor, Burzum, Tåke or Taake, Mayhem and Imortal are a better example.
Other good band i sugest you check out are: Opeth, Vintersorg, Thyrfing, Arcturus, Dissection, Einherjer, Finntroll and Windir.
Dimmu kick ass live.
If it wasn't for Commercialism then you would never hear of most of the bands you listern to.

5.0 out of 5 stars To those Criticizers... Feb. 29 2004
By Cman
Format:Audio CD
First off, Dimmu is definitely more evil and heavy then Slipknot. Slipknot needs 2 percussionists? They have no talent (Slipknot). Anyway, I am an all-round extreme metal listener. So, that said, this album is great. It's no where near comparable to Slipknot. They are pretty talented, too. Not every body can play fast and maintain a real awesome melody. After all, they are European (I'm from the U.S.A., as well). In Death's Embrace and Mourning Place are 2 wicked awesome songs, but it's all awesome. And, you don't need to quarell in your preferences for genres and sub-genres of extreme metal, it all whoops the "work" of our clogged American airways. Dark Throne to Burzum to Nile to Children of Bodom, it all rules. And don't think that I don't listen to underground extreme metal.

Okay, someone has to tell this Galder character and his little buddies that, contrary to their steadfast beliefs, keyboards do not make up for shoddy guitar riffs.
I can't stand this band. Enough with layering of keyboards over keyboards, already. Emperor did it in moderation, and got away with it. But this, this is simply ridiculous. Perfect record/band for 12-15 year old neo-goth girls. Musicians steer clear. This is metal poseur territory.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of Dimmu Borgir Feb. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think Dimmu Borgir is overrated nowadays, and their last album didn't do anything for me, but this one's a killer. It won't appeal much to the 'underground' black metal circles, and they did begin their journey toward sellouthood here, but it still rocks. "A Succubus in Rapture" and the bonus track (in Norwegian) are the best songs. However, like Stormblast before it, EDT is pretty much void of filler. Not for puritans at all, as you'll see in track # 6, but if you're not a soft-hearted twit, then you'll be okay. Concentrate on the music, because that's the good part. Dimmu never did get any points for being great lyricists. If you have to get one Dimmu album in your life, get this one.
