I can't believe that there is not an official thread about Dimmu Borgir. I just recently started listening to this wonderful band. Their first album "For all tid" is perfect and extremely beautiful.

So post your opinions and stuff that has anything to do with this band!

If the symphonic metal bands don't use those instruments I'm sure that they will be boring.


They are symphonic for some reason

I recognize that I'm one of those who like the symphonic DM. I have to say that I haven't listened so much their first releases but Spiritual Black Dimensions, Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia, Enthrone Darkness Triumphant... are brilliant.

If one was to leave the symphonic realm and go into the folkier realm of melodic synth-driven black metal, there's also Nokturnal Mortum, which is a band that would own Dimmu Borgir any day of the week.


This is the other think, If I want to listen Black Metal I won't go to DM, I'll go to Nokturnal Mortum as he says or any other you want. From DM I take their melodic side

Dimmu Borgir fuckin Rocks! As a satanist, they appeal doubly to me! One of my favourite songs is Satan My Master which was a bonus track.

I didnt tell i dont listen to Dimmu from time to time too but since i have really listened to many bm stuff already, i simply find statement "i am satanist and therefore Dimmu is best band for me" ridiculous (besides i find ridiculous the idea of "being satanist" itself...)

I think Dimmu is really good and why isnt Old man's child as famous? Galder's a beast!
but if Shagrath used his old fry vocals(EDT) than Dimmu would be the best black metal band in the world.:necro:

Dimmu Borgir was the band that got me into this type of music, "Sorgen Kammer Del II" was the first song of theirs i heard, the music video was amazing! I remember listening to it and like the heavens opened up and angels sang, i knew this was my type of music, and i havnt looked back!

More than likely! ...does CoF even take on a Satanic theme any more? Damn I wish the whole band was stoned with gob stoppers at that recent show... put them out of comission for good.

I love Dimmu Borgir! I've been a fan of theirs since an online friend recorded the original Stormblast for me on cassette back in 1996. Love their symphonic sound, and Shagrath is an awesome vocalist. I can't even choose which of their albums ranks as my favorite, but I do listen to For All Tid quite a lot.

Well without ICS Vortex and MUstis... it's like half teh band is gone. It's like they died for me Vortex was the one that made Dimmu unique. I'm done with DB, unless they can't find someone who can replace Vortex's ethereal vocals.

Well, I'm definitely not done with them, but I understand how you feel. I can't imagine how they're going to sound now without Mustis. That man has done SO much for DB, it's not even funny. It definitely won't be the same.

Muahaha! That made MY day! Quite rude! But, you know, Dimmu uses the Satanic concept a lot, while Cradle don't... It's the music itself that ain't so Satanic. And the poor saps at Dimmu still consider themselves "TRUE NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL, ARRGH!" while Cradle never did, not even on the earliest stuff.

That's because Dani is a pussy, after all the shit went down with Varg and Euronymous there was the French version of the Black Circle, who did some childish imitations of the Norwegian Black Circle, mostly grave and church desecrations, I don't recall off the top of my head if there were any arsons. Point being, the media started connection CoF with the black metal scene/culture in France, Norway, Germany (ie: Absurd) and Dani then professed his band was not black metal and wasn't into criminal acts and so on and so forth.
As much as I loathe Dani and CoF now, I think it's undeniable that up to at the very least, "From The Cradle To Enslaved" were indeed black metal, symphonic bm if nothing else, and not that doing a cover really means shit but, come on, they even covered Venom's classic "Black Metal". The intent was there.

Or, maybe, he just wanted to distance himself from such idiots. You have to be a heavy sociopath and a childish moron do to go about desecrating graves and shit, specially so if you're only doing it to look "cool" within whatever circle or group you are in. Why does that make him a pussy? Because he didn't want people thinking he is one of those nutjobs? For some people, Black Metal is just music.
And, it's actually "From The Cradle To Enslave".

Desecrating graves is childish, that I can agree with. I however, strongly disagree that black metal is "just music", it's a way of life. Dani has always been in it to make money, which is precisely why he has so many goddamn shitty mainstream guest musicians on his last few albums, he strives to be on the radio and to be on t.v... like I said, it's a shame more gobstoppers weren't hurled at stage to take out at least Dani once in for all.

Right, right, he was going to make sooo much money with "Dusk...", "Principle", "Damnation".... In fact, there was this one point in CoF's career that they nearly became more popular than Britney Spears and won a few EMV awards! Please, don't talk such nonsense. "Thornography" is the only really radio-freindly album they ever released, and thanks to "Godspeed", that's history now.

Mind explaining just what does "BM is a way of life" mean to you? I find it hard to belive it's wearing corpse paint all day and praying to Satan.
Black metal was a way of life for Dead. He killed himself. It was a way of life for Euronymous. He got killed. It was a way of life for Varg. He got thrown in prison for 20-or-so years. It's a way of life for Gaahl (or so he claims), and he is a frequently jailed homosexual. So, excuse me if I don't consider such ideas smart.
