Seen a few comparisons to Nightwish and Therion here, but I'm hearing a fair bit of Epica in this. The choir work especially.
"Another day, another Doug."
"I'll fight you on one condition. That you lower your nipples."
" 'Tis a lie! Thy backside is whole and ungobbled, thou ungrateful whelp!"

Oh god, I don't know if it is because I've been listening only to DSO clones lately but I found this album refreshing.
More metal. More power.

As a lover of catchy music, this reminds me of other catchy tunes from Paramore, Avril Lavigne and Nickelback that i could not help but sing along to. The fact that this debuted at number 142 on the Billboard Top 200 is testament of how catchy it is. This is just as sweet sounding as Melissa . Council of wolves and snakes and the rites of passage make Dimmu Borgir the forefront band in attracting new listeners to heavy metal. Buy this album and don't forget to get your granny a copy. Shagrath and co with their satanic outfits and image now look as scary as the band Lordi which is the best thing that could happen to Dimmu in terms of their commercial appeal.
You are not metal enough until you visit Kenya. The cradle of mankind, where man learnt first to work with stones and first enjoyed the sounds produced by banging stones which later influenced metal in all its sounds and genres.

At first I didn't like this album very much, but after several listening I started to love it. It must be said that regarding darkness and hardness, it's the softest album comparing to other previous albums, however it doesn't mean it's bad. They definitely are talented musicians and and they definitely proved it when making this different, but still great album.
