5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the best June 16 2004
By Tony
Format:Audio CD
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

5.0 out of 5 stars an astounding masterpiece July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
To put it quite simply, this is one dimmu cd that you will either love or hate. I happened to love how they seamlessly created crushing,brutal beauty. These are true masters of their trade. This album does feel a bit lost in spite of it's greatness, similarly to Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia. They both were excellent, but neither one of them seemed to fit in at any point of their career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dimmu Borgir's most mature album. March 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Dimmu Borgir's best Jan. 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I really like Dimmu Borgir but this cd I am not too sure about. I think the recording quality is horrible. It sounds like they recorded this album with a tape recorder. I cannot hear the guitars at all in it. The drumming however is amazing. I can tell that the cd had potential is it wasn't recorded so badly. If you want a good Dimmu Borgir cd get Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why 4 stars? Nov. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
I don't understand why this album is rated 4 stars. This is in 2nd place after Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia. Highlights on "Arcane Lifeforce Mysteria" and on the high voice done in some parts of Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia. Those parts just sound so skandinavion and very beutyful!

4.0 out of 5 stars great cover art! Sept. 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
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!
