Product Description

Product Description

Dimmu Borgir's catalog has 'Scanned over 400,000 in the U.S. alone! Black Metal history was made last year with Death Cult Armageddon surpassing 100,000 `Scanned! Produced by the multi-talented Peter Tagtgren (Children Of Bodom, Immortal, Marduk, Amon Amarth), and originally released as an EP in 1998, Godless Savage Garden is arguably the band's most over-looked release to date. However, freshly endowed with two previously unreleased live bonus tracks, the title is a quintessential element to the collection of every fan into true, raw, frostbitten Norwegian Black Metal!

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely good metal, nothing too fantastic July 14 2000
Format:Audio CD
Dimmu Borgir are probably the third most well-known and popular band of the european black metal scene behind the infamous Emperor and Cradle of Filth. Overall I have to say this is a good example of the band, not too bad for a first time Dimmu Borgir fan. Yet i do have to say also that these guys really don't do anything too interesting or fantastic. Dont' get me wrong, i really like some of these songs, but the vocals just aren't very good at all, not screechy, rhaspy, grunty, but not clean at all. Just a bit of terrible throaty oddness reminiscent of voice overs for monsters in fantasy films. The musicians are all quite adept and creative, but the riffs sound very power metal-ish, with blastbeats going on in the background a long with the keyboards, which aren't quite as high in the mix or as prominent as in past albums (Then again, this technically isn't a real album) These mix in an odd way and don't come out as either very dark or very upbeat, and considering Shagrath's goofy evil commentery, these boys just don't fit in, and something about this album sounds a little incongruent. Consisting of remakes of songs from their first album, 2 new songs, 1 cover (Metal Heart by Accept, which may be the h ighlight of the album) and 3 live songs, it gives a brief overview of the bands history and their current sound, and they really havent' changed much. However, i do feel as though i'm being too negative. I really like this band and think they're excellent, but there are a lot of other amazing bands in this style who are a bit better. I recommend 'Stormblast' the highest of their albums, and then 'Enthrone Darkness Triumphant' (which is good, but highly unoriginal). Their other albums are half formed and not too spectacular. For long time fans or newbies interested in the material.

Life is HORRIFIC!!! Death and Black Metal fanatics know this! And so does Dimmu Borgir! Godless Savage Garden was a stop-gap release to hold fans over until the new '99 album (Spiritual Black Dimensions) came out, but it is still an essential album for any Black Metal fan to own! Shagrath has THE best voice in the genre, in my opinion, and the music is always intricate, layered, and compelling in its ability to portray deep anguish and terror. Impressively, a lot of classical influences are woven into their powerful and dark soundscapes. I'm usually not a big fan of the synthesizer, but in Dimmu Borgir music, the keybords add a creepy and ominous strain. "Moonchild Domain" and "Chaos Without Prophecy" will shake you to the core. And just listen to the live cuts and you will know that, someday, you will have to experience these Black Metal giants in concert./// The world would be a better place if more people faced their deep pain. Dimmu Borgir albums, and all good Death and Black Metal music, can help you do that. This is not silly, adolescent music you will outgrow. This is serious music that will deepen you emotionally and advance your personality. Don't listen to the ignorant and shallow people who tell you to just "be happy" and that will solve everything. Instead, work-through your pain and you will arrive at some real happiness./// Anyone have any rare, collectible DB items for trade? Contact me if you do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great EP, not an outstanding effort though March 28 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is not much of a new record, 3 new songs, 1 old song (that has also be used in other 2 records of Dimmu Borgir: Raabjorn Speiler Draugheimens Skodde) and 3 live songs.
The real thrill of the album for me was the live tracks because Dimmu Borgir would never fall in this island for a concert. Good music, not too good sound. But it is worth a try.
