I've been reading reviews where people are saying that this album was either a disappointment or mediocre.. while i respect everyone's opinions, in my eyes, this is the pinnacle for dimmu borgir.. Not as heavy as PEM or not as keyboard driven as EDT, SBD is the perfect mixture of melody and brutality.. the introduction of clean vocals as well as mustis on the keybords shows this band is all about progression from album to album. Here's my rundown of the tracks:
1. Reptile - Excellent opener, the clean vocals and keyboards are amazing.. 10/10
2. Phantasmagoria - The heaviest track on the album, no let up on this song.. 8.5/10
3. Dreamside Dominions - Another highlight, Mustis is brilliant, once again keyboards make the song.. great lyrics too.. 10/10
4. United in Unhallowed Grace - Awesome rhythm guitars w/ awesome vocals from Shagrath.. 9/10
5. The Promised Future Aeons - Great intro, great solos, great keyboards, great song.. 10/10
6. Blazing Monolith of Defiance - Cool title, but this is the only song that doesn't do anthing for me.. - 1/10
7. Insight and the Catharsis - Amazing track from beginning to end.. More great lyrics, very powerful song overall, was my favrotite until.. 10/10
8. Grotesquery Conceiled - Highest of the highlights.. Dark vocals, atmospheric keyboards, amazing solos, best song on the album.. 10/10
9. Arcane Lifeforce Mysteria - Futuristic black metal song.. 9/10

Though Dimmu Borgir's "best album" is often cited as the chilling Enthrone Darkness Triumphant, the chaotic and pandemonic Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia, or the melancholic and classic Stormblåst, I believe that Spiritual Black Dimensions shows off the band's most mature songwriting and artistic skills to date.
Spiritual Black Dimensions is quite synth-laden. This is thanks (mainly) to Mustis, whose debut as the band's keyboardist is on this album. Though some people dislike the synth melodies and symphonic feel of the album, it creates quite a dark atmosphere which engulfs the entire disc and submerges the listener into a world of dark musical labyrinths and black melodies. The synth work on this disc is not nearly as orchestral or overbearing sounding as that of Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia or Death Cult Armageddon - it is much more intimate and intensely dark. Nor, however, is it as classical/medieval oriented as Stormblåst. Many piano and organ patches are used, as opposed to strings, choirs, or orchestra synths.
The grand highlight of the album, however, is the songwriting. Here Silenoz works perfectly with the other band members to create a masterful work. None of the songs become repetitive or boring at all (which some of Dimmu Borgir's previous albums or songs are perhaps slightly guilty of), and there is absolutely no filler. Every track has memorable melodies and frantic, blasting, pure black metal passages. Shagrath's vocal attack is deadlier than ever, and more disgusting and evil. Some clean vocals are utilized on this CD (the first time for Dimmu Borgir), and they fit perfectly with the music. The album flows beautifully together.

I'm not the biggest black metal fan out there, and even though they're blatantly satanic and I'm the exact opposite, I find myself liking Dimmu Borgir. This was my second album from the infamous Norwegian black metal juggernauts, and I must say it's quite enjoyable, but not perfect. As I stated in the title, I love the cover art, even though it is meant to be sacrilegious. But the thought of a pretty girl bound and strangled... to a sadist like me, there's something beautiful about such a situation that a non-sadistic mind could never understand! But now onto the album itself.
There's a lot of synthesizer on here, and sometimes that takes away from the heaviness, but also makes it more symphonic, almost cinematic at times. Shagrath's voice is very damning, and the fact that you can't understand what he's saying makes it easier for non-satanists to listen to without being offended. Of course, I wouldn't be offended anyway because those are their beliefs, but some more sensitive listeners might. So if that's what's keeping you away from Dimmu, then you might find some relief in knowing that, without the insert booklet, it won't really sound that bad to you. Drumming is good, but the guitar work is often drowned out by the synth (that also irritates me about Cradle of Filth). It's a good album, but I'd recommend Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia first, as it's heavier. Then, get yourself a copy of Stormblast. I don't have it, but my neighbor has it and I listened to his copy - good stuff!

First I'll say "Insight and the Catharsis" is the most complex and beautiful track in the album. The clean vocals couldn't fit more perfectly.
Something happened that made this album even more enjoyable to me. Once I went to the DB official homepage and saw an interesting picture. Shagrath without the maquillage, laying in the sofa with a budweiser in one hand, looking at the camera with a ridiculous drunk expression(you know, that easy smile and half closed eyes...), the pic was taken after a "cool" party. Probably you won't find this image anymore, the webmaster soon realized he had just ruined the band's principal marketing factor: THEIR IMAGE. Painted guys dressed in black, giant evil rings, necklaces and other parafernalia, showing the sharp canines and the black sharp artificial nails.
As I said, that made the album even more enjoyable to me. I AM a black metal fan, but I simply don't care about the image nor I am a satanist because those guys say it's cool. The MUSIC delights me. All the tracks are awesome, "Spiritual..." is without a doubt an ESSENTIAL melodic black metal album.
