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?

Although many traditional Black Metal bands, such as Emperor, Immortal and Dissection, are more consistantly heavy and dark than Dimmu Borgir, Dimmu has got something that many of these other bands lack- a diverse and multilayed sound that is both accessible and brutal. Accessible and brutal? Sounds like a contradiction, you might say. Yet, Dimmu Borgir has somehow managed to blend styles together to create what many refer to as "the new sound of Black Metal." Some call it Symphonic Black Metal, others dub it Melodic Black Metal. Whatever it is, Dimmu Borgir has mastered it. This is one amazing album. My purchases have not followed the same direction of Dimmu's release dates. My first two Dimmu Borgir albums were the newest two, ("Puritanical Euphoric Misanthopia" and "Death Cult Armageddon"). While some of the songs on those albums were more diversified, "Enthrone Darkness Triumphant" is a more powerful release. It is a perfect blend of guitars, drums and especially keyboards. Every fan of Black Metal should own this. In fact, every fan of extreme metal should at least consider buying this. You won't regret it.

Norwegian Black Metal ... what can I say? A genre that is often split between True Black Metal and "false" Black Metal has been through many changes. Instead of calling Dimmu Borgir "false Black Metal" I shall call them "Symphonic Black Metal" since it's more accurate. Anyhow, let's get onto the music! Making splendid use of keyboards and melodic guitars, the Norwegians continue to grow and mature into what I would consider the World's greatest Symphonic Black Metal band.
I still consider Enthrone Darkness Triumphant to be the best Symphonic Black Metal album this Earth has seen. It possesses every quality I look for in this often stale genre ... majestic keyboards, melodic guitars, bombastic drums, excellent vocals, and, most of all, passion. It is rare that I hear an album that flows with such feeling and passion as this. Songs such as In Death's Embrace (my all-time favorite Symphonic Black Metal song), Entrance and A Succubus In Rapture are perfect examples of how passionate Dimmu Borgir's music can be.
While reviewing this album, I cannot help but hate the fact that I only mentioned three songs above. EVERY song on this album (including the "hidden" bonus track ... a remake of Raabjørn Speiler Draugheimens Skodde taken from their first release - For All Tid) is simply overflowing with emotion and feeling. There is not one dry song, moment or even second found on this album.
If you are reading this and aren't exactly sure what to buy, I highly suggest this album. It's one of most beautiful albums I own and you certainly won't be disappointed to what I consider one of the best albums of the 1990s. Flawless!

I have three Dimmu CDs and World Misanthropy (DVD). Real diehard black metal fans probably don't enjoy DB as much because it's like punk, there is mainstream and small underground. DB would compare to Manson in the states as maniacs by parents but enjoyed by metalheads. Those of you new to the whole Norwegian scene, this is one of; if not the best to start with. It's not as fast as Puritanical... and the recording isn't as great but the guitars are so perfect with the keyboards. The newer DB albums are going to sound a lot different because DB has had about 10 different members, including two keyboard/samplers since Enthrone.... As compared to Slipknot, what is with you people? Slipknot sounds nothing like DB, and who is to care about bass and treble? It's the music that counts and those that like to hear talant by the barrelful over people pounding at d-tuned guitars will definatly appriciate this album.

P.S. Those who religiously listen to bands like Darkthrone, Burzum or Ulver may not enjoy this as much as I am going down that path and don't listen to DB as much as I used to.
