5.0 out of 5 stars you need to buy this !!!! 4 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
I have read the other reviews here and i must say i do not agree. I own all the dimmu albums but that does not automatically make me biased as a superfan or whatever. This album does take more getting used to than the last few, on Dealth Cult Armageddon and Puritanical Eurphoric Misanthropia the mix of music and symphany hit you in the face before you can even begin to think. This album is different in style but never fails to be Dimmu Borgir. The more you listen to this album the better it gets, at first songs seem similar but as you listen on you seem to free them up and find each song is very different. Its very clever what Dimmu have done, they wanted to make a story concept album so the songs have to fit together and they do very well. The sweeping orchestral feel which you would normally find on a Dimmu album has been pushed aside but is still used to great effect on certain songs. This is a very heavy album with crushing guitars and some awesome drumming from Hellhammer. The technical brilliance of this album is astounding. If you have never listened to Dimmu borgir before i suggest you do as you will be suprised. If you have heard Dimmu you should already own this by now, if not shame on you.

4.0 out of 5 stars The evil remains !!!!!! 18 Jun 2007
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
dimmu borgirs seventh album isnt the natural follow up to their excellent album,'death,cult...' as it isnt as opratic and majestic but is nevertheless an album that rewards the listener the more they listen too it and after a few listens its brilliance starts to dawn.

Its a shorter,leaner and certainly in some ways meaner than any of their previous albums,clocking in at 48 mins signifies that the band have a purpose,to be unrelenting,but they certainly stick to the melodies,choirs,clean vocals and trumpets and symphonic black metal that won them grammys and made them the first norwegian group since A-HA to break into the American billborad chart,in truth this album is a runaway success for a black metal group and i cant fault this too much.

The album opens with the brilliant 'the serpentine offering' and throughout the album the melodies are rich and very well structured,of course vocalist shagrath screams his head off but these days he is easier to make out and in truth his clean vocals have never sounded better,look no further than 'the sacrilegious scorn' for evidence of that.

On the ten songs here,one of which is a bonus track and one an instrumental,the band dont stray from their formula much at all but thats perfectly understandable,and one fact remains,that this is a classic album in the making,time will prove me right or wrong on that but my money is on the former.


As this is the deluxe edition that i purchased then special mention must go to the contents,a stunning booklet with lyrics back to front and a glass mirror to read them,including an explanation of the man behind the inspiration for this concept album and a dvd with music video and two interesting documentaries ,well thats hard to beat,brilliantly done lads.

Format:Audio CD
Very good album, and it was my first taste of Dimmu!
Very heavy with big emphasis on Metallic riffs, Double Bass drums and a BIG, clear production sound. One of the best productions around. Sounds like a million dollars!
A concept album, with an interesting story, similiar to Sabbat's Dark Age lyrical themes. Very brutal and varied vocals from the charred throat of Shagrath and Clean vox from bassist ICS Vortex (better than on Death Cult Armageddon, as good as if not better than on Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia).
The guitar work is more Heavy Metal/Thrash in style than early BM tones, and Hellhammer is an apt way of describing the drummer's nature as well as name! Very fast, heavy with a very clean, powerful sound.
Mustiis, as usual, delivers some great symphonic keyboard work particularly on epic opener, The Serpentine Offering. However it's a dissapointment that the band did not use a real orchestra or at least a string section (as on DCA & PEM). Synths can sound great, as they do on here, & replicate a symphony orchestra really well (see Epica) BUT there's no substitute for the real thing. The material is so well written & produced, that if a full orchestra had been added, I would almost certainly consider this the best DM album of all! The good news is that the band are starting work in 2008 on the next concept album (the 2nd part of Diaboli's story) and are looking to work with no less than the London Philharmonic Orchestra - So effective on Nightwish's Once & Dark Passion Play albums, and The Lord Of The Rings Film Trilogy.
Standout tracks: All of them, most work standalone and all work as a whole concept!
The packaging is great - yes, the inverted lyrics/mirror idea is a bit naff but the fonts and dark ages style illustrations are really good!

4.0 out of 5 stars My descent is the story of everyman... 30 April 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dimmu Borgir have always had an unhealthy interest in satanism, so it was only natural that they eventually came round to writing a concept album all about it. "In Sorte Diaboli" tells the story of a priest in the time of the crusades who begins to doubt his faith in God and christianity, and begins a path down the road to becoming the antichrist. This, I have to say, seems like a pretty cool concept, and one that works pretty well with Dimmu's music. The beginning of the story is explained in a short text in the album booklet, and the rest continues in the lyrics of the songs. Unfortunately, they never seem to have got very far into the concept, as the protagonist seems to fall into satanism in the first song, which leaves around another 7 rather general songs about satanism until he is eventually burned at the stake in the final song.

The music is, predictably, pretty damn heavy! As very heavy metal goes, theres not much to say against it... There are plenty of good riffs, killer drumming and Shagrath displays a more impressive vocal range than usual. On the downside, Dimmu seem to have gone a bit over the top with proving how "evil" and "black metal" they are, and on the whole neglected the melodic side of their music. Particularly given the concept, the album would have hugely benefitted from more inclusion of the eerie keyboards and backing choirs which a few of their songs hint at. Nonetheless, "In Sorte Diaboli" easily stands up to their last few albums, although it is true that there isn't a huge amount of variety between songs.

The atmosphere and style of music is seriously black and evil, and there are some fantastic moments.
