The oldest band from Sweden is back to enchant, with an incredibly roundly built album. A definite must for everyone who, at least once, was institutionalized for erratic behavior, or was part of a circus.

If you liked anything about DSO's previous 2 albums, or you're curious what all the fuss is about, then don't miss the opportunity to bask in their 3rd offering. They've tripled the energy, intensity, and crazy fun. No world music is safe from this insane band.

Holy shit.

They actually keep topping their previous works. This is fucked up shit, but it's amazing!

The Chinese boys choir, the black metal bit, the mexican song... everything was true.
The low quality leak turned me off a bit, but composition-wise it's excellent.

I thought the single was unimpressive, but I'm hoping that was just a fluke.

Not that many songs on the new one sound like the single. But I adored it, personally.

Of Kali Ma Calibre. Just some seconds of blast beats and rather violent drumming for DSO standards, nothing to be crazy about.

Been listening to the whole album the last couple days. It's hard to know what to say. I think they might have actually topped their previous albums, which I listen to so often that I didn't think they could. Lots of new stuff in this album, and it has both their heaviest and lightest material to date, I think. Preordering the album and hoping they actual come play in the US for once.

I still don't know what to say about this album. I know it's good but it left me somewhat confused.

exactly my reaction too.
it'll go down pretty soon i guess... doesn't have any material that'll attract people who aren't already fans..

Very good album, yet not close to the previous two. The first song especially is not as good as "Ballrog Boogie" and "A Tapdancer's Dillema" - they really kicked those 2 albums off with a bang!

either close minded metalheads or new to D:S:O , I don't thinik it's the best album to start listening to this band ... first album is the best for that . anyway the musical talent and songwriting skills of D:S:O needs no discussion .. they are among the best .
