The first time I listened to this album I was a little shocked - the sound has changed in many ways compared to the Spiritual Black Dimensions album. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but compaired to the other albums this one is just not as strong... This time more symphonic elements added, which made the album more melodic and less 'black'. For all the true black metal fans out there this album would probably find it quite disappointing. That's the same thing that happened after Cradle of Filth's "Midian".

Rating: 9 One of the greatest metal albums in the world. Its magical ambience enchants me over and over again. The synths and orchestrations are probably the most stylish in the band's history. Also the other parts and elements, including riffs, melodies, raw and clean vocals, structure of the songs etc, are extremely magnificent.

Kings Of The Carnival Creation is my favorite song.


Ditto. It's an amazing song that just has every single element you could possibly want. The entire album is awesome.

Rating: 9 This album is as epic as epic can be, and even if that's what dimmu borgir are known for, they still do it in their own way. This album is enough to make me want to see them at this years bloodstock all the more. Excellent album.

Rating: 8 Great album and probably the pinnacle of their career IMO.
