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 loversPublished on May 17 2013 by Mike
The Sound quality was perfect, it was delivered in perfect condition, and as always, Dimmu borgir symphonic metal side is just awesome!Published on April 7 2013 by Brock Wilson
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.
This album features Dimmu Borgir's new drummer, Nick Barker (the drummer from Cradle of Filth) and Galder from Old Mans Child. Read morePublished on June 27 2004 by Intellectual Metal Head
