5.0 out of 5 stars Puritanical euphoric black metal 11 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is without doubt the best work ever created by Dimmu Borgir. The atmosphere and the shear heaviness of this album are of the excellent standard that is expected from these black metal emporers. This is above all others possibly the greatest piece of musical art that you will ever buy.
Fear and Wonder: this masterpiece of classical music acts as the sinister and grand introduction to this album of grandure and darkness.
Kings of the Carnival Creation: This is just one long darkly atmospheric ride, from start to finish the classical influences on this band become brilliantly clear as they back up the roaring, growling vocals, the irratic and unbelevably fast drumming and the heavily grinding guitars that make this song the best song on the album and ultimately the best song that Dimmu Borgir have ever produced.
Hybrid Stigma-The Apostasy: this song nails home just how heavy and grand this band are and will be for many years to come, the starting bars of classical violins gives way to an almighty scream from the singer (Shagrath) and huge riffs from the guitarists and savage drumming from the drummer (Nicolas)
Puritania: This is a massive track, literally, the consistantly rummbling drums and the suplimenting guitar cords add to the atmosphere which is summed up by the brief but all-too-clear vocals that get the message of this song across in short and excellently written verses.
This album is a beast, a machine, a savage entity that bares no name but is equally as monstrous as the Chimera, Cyclops or Leviathan and will leave the listener dazed and confused but equally satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best metal album ever. Period. 26 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
People will hate me for that title i just wrote but I'm not worried about that. I listen to a wide range of music; everything from metal to post modern to ambient etc. This is the best metal album i have ever heard, & one of my favorite albums in my entire collection. It is simply amazing. EVERY song on this album just blows the lid off. EVERY one. And each in a unique way. The songs do not all sound the same, they are each unique. For a first time listener, it may be hard to make sense of it, & you may initially decide that it's not to your taste, but boy does it grow on you if you give it a chance. Sometimes the songs start out sounding so chaotic that a first-timer might be tempted to skip the track, but waiting 30 - 45 seconds will reward you with & reveal to you the truly inspiring intent the band has. The following minutes of said song will just leave you breathless. After a few listens, you'll wonder how you could have ever thought this album was anything less than sheer metal perfection. I've listened to it so many times & it does not lose it's potency still. Be careful listening to it while driving, as it will bring out the most evil driver in you, which can be dangerous. If you see someone driving making these faces like they're possessed, that's probably me. Some die-hard metal-heads will knock this album, claiming that it's too over-produced & too far removed from the more raw production values of pure-roots metal. My response to this is, do you go around to every restaraunt just ordering burgers all the time? When you get something else do you compare it to a burger? Of course you don't. Don't compare this album to anything; just appreciate it for what it is. Not every band wants to fit neatly into a tight little category; some have ambition & creative vision. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 1 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
On first inspection i, like many of you im guesing, would have given this 4 stars but the true brilliance of this album is discovered with the long term listen. coaxed in by Puritania i was delighted to find this was the tip of the iceberg in a thoroughly masterful c.d! id be hard pushed to name a single bad song (though id say indoctrination is definetely my current fav with the brilliantly eerie orchestral interlude!).
If you dont own this album whats wrong with you? a true masterpiece that would fit perfectly in anyones collection. BUY IT NOW!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a poor man's Cradle of Filth... 31 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There are undeniable comparisons with Dimmu Borgir to Cradle of Filth, especially as a few old COF members have now joined DB. But this album to me seems less about the image, more of the music, and COF, vice versa. Incredibly focussed, mostly very heavy, lots of different sections within songs to keep you interested. A lot of the purists have strayed away from this album because their snobby peers have deemed DB to be a sellout. Well, I thought that metal music was about individual tastes, not trendiness and the "sheep" element. Judge for yourself and don't be swayed by what your friends say. Personally, I think this rocks.

4.0 out of 5 stars PEM 7 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being a Dimmu-Borgir veteran listener I am sure I can help you decide on whether or not to buy this album. With Galder as a lead guitar addition on this album it adds another new element. Ever since I was listening to 'for all tid', 'stormblast' right through to 'progenies' I knew I'd found something special. Black metal is mainly categorized on lyrics, not music. D-B are one of my favourites, and if you appreciate any of their works you will appreciate this one. Old mans child is also a very good take on things - as well as susperia. Bring on the epic metal =]
