Product Description


Dimmu Borgir aren't fooling anyone who knows Emperor and Enslaved as to the true origins of its basic musical plan. Judging by the group's popularity, legitimacy doesn't really matter. In a field overrun by erratic innovators, Dimmu Borgir are a friendly face to fans who stumbled into the catacombs of black metal by way of Cradle of Filth's comical casino. So, as this gigantic gaggle of evil keyboard-wielding Yanni spawn increasingly represents the marketable side of Norwegian black metal, the more enormous and slick grows their sound. With significant melodic classical influence and lots of five-dollar words, the digital jesters construct huge plastic cathedral-sized heavy metal dance halls for the purpose of desecrating virtual-reality saints. Goons gurgle, hounds howl, fret boards flutter furiously, choirs complain to the heavens, and tiny gateways to Hades blink open and shut. It's all devilishly dirty, and in the end nobody gets hurt. --Ian Christe

My favourite album of all time. So much power is written in these lyrics. Maelstorm mephisto is a must for any black metal lovers

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD May 10 2005
Format:Audio CD
To whoever said the vocals were incomprehensible, thats METAL. If you don't like vocals that are hard to hear. Don't listen to metal.
I think this is a excellent album myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars A few things to know about this CD. June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album features Dimmu Borgir's new drummer, Nick Barker (the drummer from Cradle of Filth) and Galder from Old Mans Child.
Nick adds a new dimension to the way Dimmu Borgir sounds with his skill. Galder add the lead guitar parts that accent the melodies and harmonies of the album.
I have read that some people don't care for the opening or ending songs. There is a reason for this: They are ignorant to the beauty of the songs.
There are better Dimmu Borgir albums, but this album is a good start for people who haven't gotten to know Dimmu Borgir on a musical scale.

1.0 out of 5 stars whoa, hey now, this is total crap, ok? June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
some reviewer wrote: I wonder how many of the positive reviewers below, knows Norwegian?
i wonder if you know how to speak proper english? anyways, dimmu borgir is crap. emperor light, and that's pretty tame.(emperor were good, but dimmu never will be.) avoid this at all costs, unless you're a fat, zit covered suburban kid who thought slipknot or lamb of god were the most br00tal band ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good dramatic album June 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
The album begins with an orchestral intro that I can only compare to the opening of an ominous movie. Its emotive without being too pompous. Then starts the first furious song, damn this band rocks. The drummer is a freaking maniac.
The entire album is characterized by good production, amazing drumming, very melodic effective keyboards and aggressive guitar. Some of the riffs and blast beats are maniacal in their intensity. The very occasional clean vocal adds to the emotion.
The album makes use of an orchestra and except for the intro where they're used exclusively, they're sparingly used and to great effect. I usually detest strings in rock music as being pretentious B.S. But here they work, especially on the last track "Perfection or Vanity". Therion wishes they could write orchestral parts with half of the majesty.
I generally don't care for keyboards in metal either, but on PEM, Dimmu Borgir use the keyboards successfully for atmosphere and melodic flourishes. They're used effectively and are not overbearing as they have been in the past such as on Stormblast. They've avoided the cheesiness that plagued the song "Entrance" from Enthrone Darkness Triumphant, my least favorite song on that album.
I have to say the one thing you cannot fault this band with is musical incompetence. They can really play their instruments and their writing is both harmonically sophisticated and emotional. Not to mention complex, epic and intense.
On Puritanical Euphoric Msanthropia Dimmu Borgir sucessfully combines their earlier neoclassical/romantic tendencies with black metal aggressiveness and 21st century studio technology. PEM is a fantastic, cinematic, metal album. Its huge, and heavy.

1.0 out of 5 stars More Cookie Monster from up under June 4 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I don't have to 'try dissing' them. I AM dissing them. This is 'music' for adolescent little boys
The vocals are now in English? Gee, I couldn't tell. In English or Norwegian, it wouldn't matter anyway. I'd still be incomprehensible.
I wonder how many of the positive reviewers below, knows Norwegian? Or maybe all they crave is hearing somebody who sounds like he's had his larynx removed from throat cancer and could listen to his buzzsaw noise all day. As a way of dealing their ADD.
In fact, the vocalist sounds like the Cookie Monster out of Sesame Street and couldn't hold a note if his life depended upon it.
And I thought Cannibal Corpse was bad....
(PS: Too bad I have to give them a one star. I'd really like to give them a zero)
