Top Customer Reviews
For those who are used to PEM and DCA, you will most likely not enjoy this album at all. But, if you give it a chance, you might enjoy it in due time. It's an acquired taste, in a way. I enjoy Dimmu Borgir's later albums as well, but this album has a certain feel that the others don't. But, it's also missing something the other albums have. Oh well, you can't have it perfect.
Anyways, this album hasn't got very good production, but it's better than SOME other releases (Emperor's In the Nightside Eclipse comes to mind...), and in some ways, I kinda prefer the bad production here, as it enhances the mood. Tjodalv and Silenoz have come up with some great riffs on this album, but the fact that there are no guitar solos doesn't help the fact that this album seems to drag on in certain parts and repeat a riff a few too many times before going to a new riff. Tracks 10 and 11 (on the digipak version) are from the bands first 7" EP Inn I Evighetens Morke, which had the two bonus tracks, and Raabjorn Speiler Draugheimens Skodde.Read more ›
This CD entranced me. I would be sitting there, listening to this CD, writing or something, and there were points when I just -had- to stop what I was doing for a few moments and just listen. Their language is just beautiful; the way Shagrath sings at times seems poetic.
But of course, I have my reasons for giving it less than five stars. The first half of instrumental track one doesn't appeal to me much at all. Kinda like..wierd computer-like sounds, then it slows and goes into something else, which I honestly can't describe, besides the fact that it is somewhat repetitive and boring. I often skip to the second half, which is piano, and Shagrath speaking in a poetic way.
Numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 11 must be my favorites..well, #4 must be my very VERY favorite...
The guitar riffs, singing and use of piano and other effects is all done very well, though Shagrath's singing in the beginning of track three isn't very easy to take seriously, but it is something I got over after awhile. The rest of the song is, in my opinion, excellent.
Well I can't get into analyzing every song at this point, but in general, it is one of those Dimmu Borgir albums that must be heard, though the band itself stated that it is not a representation of the music they make today.
Check it out.
All in all, only a good album if you're really into Dimmu Borgir, but definitely not a starter if you're thinking of becoming a fan of Dimmu Borgir.
one being how they have completly turned their backs on the foundations that made this disc so great. with the newer albums such as P.E.M, it seems that DM is focusing on making cheap, shallow, faster music (partly due to nicholas).
i haven't seen them play live, but i did catch a live video of them playing 'spellbound (by the devil)' at the Dynamo. after watching that, i'm glad i never wasted my money on seeing them play.
of course they're wearing corpse paint, inverted crosses, black clothes, etc. how original.. not to mention shagrath actually says "raise your fists in the name of satan" (LAME).
however, the thing that totally destroyed my image of dimmu borgir was the bon jovi - cheesy 80's metal band move. At one point, the two guitarists and the bassist stood side by side and headbanged.. it caused me to laugh for about 30 seconds.. synchronized headbanging?!? yea, that's real 'black metal'.
i cannot support these clowns anymore. i've put up with all the fans who say they are 'black metal' (which they are NOT).. the same people wearing nothing but black 24-7. the same people listening to 'nu-metal'.
this album stands as their best work. i used to listen to E.D.T, but watching the video live killed it for me. i would highly recommend this disc over all their others. buy this, and stop here. if you read the notes on the re-release version of this cd closely, they make it a known fact that "neither the music nor the sound is representative for the music we make today." practically apologizing for having an unmastered album, and for the whole album being sung in the norwegian tongue.
but.. they said it best themselves.. they truly are the "kings of carnivals creation".

For All Tid, Dimmu Borgir's first album, is one of my favorites. The entire CD, written in Norwegian, is full of intriguing melodies. Read morePublished on April 24 2004 by Clarissa
Excellent album, great moody atmosphere created. Not to be bagged by people who only like perfect production as this doesn't have. Read morePublished on Oct. 6 2003
This album resonates with the lo-fi sound of early '90s Black Metal. The production isn't great, but it isn't bad either. Read morePublished on Sept. 14 2003 by D. Knouse
...but the sounds are not so good. There's very good songs like for exampel "Under Korpens Vinger", "Glittertind", "Raabjørn Speiler Draugheimens Skodde", and of course... Read morePublished on June 16 2003 by Reijo Piippula

This album is like coffee, it really is great, but bitter upon your very first taste. The sound, and appreciation of it, is acquired. Read morePublished on April 1 2003 by Joukahainen

This is so weak! Anyone who loves this album must be a weak humanitarian geek. There's absolutely nothing that I could call black metal on this disc. Read morePublished on Aug. 8 2002 by Megasin
