Format: Audio CD
Dimmu Borgir have served up an album as vast and sprawling as the sea of littered bones filling the brilliant apocalyptic artwork of the case (the album is available in no less than six different formats at its release). As majestic as ever, the band have again been moving upwards in their aspirations in the same fashion they have always succeeded in. However, for the first time, links to their previous album are far more pronounced. There is not the chasm bounding leap here that Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia offered, but rather a subtler enhancing of the style which made that album so powerful, confirming their place as one of the big guns of Black Metal.
So what are these changes? Most prominently is the upgrading of the orchestral side from a small chamber orchestra to a full 46-piece Prague Philarmonic Orchestra. The change results in an even grander sound, most noticably with the string sections which will always produce a far more authentic sound than a synthesizer. The use of the orchestra has also varied, now fully incorporated into the song composition, rising for key passages and then dying away behind the band at others, rather than simply echoing guitar riffs at certain moments. This, combined with the best production yet for a Dimmu Borgir album, has created an intense beast, indeed. Thankfully the somewhat overpowering pounding drums of the former album have been levelled off in the mixing to complement the other instruments more effectively. They are neither too prominent nor banished to the background, and Barker's performance retains its previous quality.
Some features may be a little disappointing, however.

Format: Audio CD
Apperently, in order to be a true Black Metal band you have to conform to a number of guidelines. First and foremost, you have to have a very small budget; if you can afford to make your album look good with a colour booklet and skillfully executed photomanipulations, you're too commercial. Secondly, you have to record your album in a howling gale. If you can't do that, wait till you've finished the recording stage and put as much background noise into each track as possible so you can hardly hear the riffs. Thirdly, don't you dare try and make money out of your records; do that and you are just some commercial band in if for the cash. Obviously.

It's these points that "true Black Metal fans" seem to go through and tick off with each new album they buy. If any of these are skipped over in an album then they deem it not worth their time, which is why Death Cult Armageddon is so criminally overlooked by many who should be embracing it.

For this recording Dimmu finally spent the money on a 32-piece orchestra, and it shows. Where "true" Black Metal bands would use keyboards and synthesizers to try and capture the grandeur that should by all accounts be in their music, Dimmu do it properly and get slated for it. Progenies of the Great Apocalypse is perhaps the best example of this, in which Black Metal is flawlessly grafted onto what could easily be a film-score. Eradication Instincts Defined, with its strings and brass giving it perhaps an even more epic sound than the aforementioned Progenies, again takes your breath away, especially when the strings return near the end and Shagrath screams with an almost tangible hatred in time to the backing composition.
