Dimmu played with orchestras on their records way before Septic Flesh.
Besides of that, Septic Flesh plays more br00tal stuff than Dimmu.

BTW, first time they did this they said it was a "once in a lifetime" show, I knew that was bullshit!

Hopefully they get a solo tenor to sing Vortex's parts. That would be much more interesting than the recorded choir.

So they fired Vortex, brought in Snowey Shaw to record Abrahadabra, but he left just after. So why don't they have a clean singer anymore? Is it all pre-recorded?

Shagrath does the clean vocals too, he is quite good actually but of course not as talented as vortex
