You may suspect Dimmu will be rehashing quite a lot of their usual elements. You'd be right... they're as heavy as ever, and not lacking on the classical touches and the epic atmosphere. But as usual, they've reworked it, and stuffed it full of new ideas. Yes, Vortex and Mustis are gone. You might miss them. I don't. Opening with "Xibur", a dark, movie soundtrack-esque instrumental, Dimmu start as they mean to go on. Eerie choirs, sweeping strings, dark, dramatic atmosphere, building to a heavier climax. All the elements that characterised Dimmu's ever so slightly cringeworthy earlier works are dead and gone... the silly "satanic" voiceovers and (yes) the rather overblown backing vocals for example. The music is better; better written and excellently performed.
"Born Treacherous" delivers plenty of the heavier end of the Dimmu spectrum, replete with their usual heavy riffing, complemented by the orchestra and with more than enough black metal vocalisation to satisfy any fan. The single, "Gateways" is mindblowing...Read more ›
The just before Christmas I searched on Amazon and found Abrahadabra as being their most recent offering. I listened to the segments of the songs and knew it would be another great album, and I wasn't wrong.
The orchestra, again, sounds great along with the metal guitars and drums. It's like the soundtrack to a film, I am playing it over and over at the moment as I can't get enough of it!
The only disappointing thing is that I bought the 'standard' album rather than the deluxe edition and I since found out there are bonus tracks on the deluxe edition. Schoolboy error!
After reading a couple of reviews I took a chance and ordered the box set, at a fantastic value at amazon.co.uk (it actually costs exactly twice in a store here in Norway). I sure wasn't disappointed. This is Dimmus at it's best, almost as fantastic as Death Cult. The orchestra is back, beatifully arranged, bringing an extra power to the tracks. Not to mention the choir. The sound is at times so dark that at times you can feel the chill. This is great stuff!
My only regret is the soundquality of the Dimmu albums whick lack dynamics and clarity when played on an audiophile system. I guess this could be intentional, but if so I think it's a miss.
For those who think Death Cult Armageddon was Dimmu at it's best, they won't be disappointed with this.
A must for everybody who has ever enjoyed the dark, powerful sound of Norway's pride. Thank you, Dimmu!!

Boyfriend loved it defiantly a worthwhile gift I have also stolen it a few times best thing is he plays it at work.Published on 10 Jun. 2013 by Kathryn Wiggins
Not really my thing, but there is some splendid orchestral writing/playing on this, particularly the low brass, even more particularly some splendidly aggressive cimbasso playing.Published on 13 April 2013 by Tough Chops
I'm new to this band, but I shall stay with them if their other albums are as good as this. It is amazing.Published on 1 Mar. 2013 by HoneyRat
I first came across Dimmu Borgir in the Trondheim rock museum in mid Norway, a celebration of Black Metal crowned them as a massive musical export that demanded my attention. Read morePublished on 8 Jan. 2013 by Mr. M. L. Hawes
Great album! Dimmu Borgir always surprise me in a positive way.
Great songs and this package is very cool!
A good album, very melodic which is nice to hear, as i like that. Not as heavy as their other stuff but still worth a listen, i don't regret buying this album. Read morePublished on 28 Dec. 2010 by rebeccachopper
This album blew me away. I don't think of myself as a black metal fan and therefore, I am not a purist when it comes to this type of music. Read morePublished on 4 Nov. 2010 by Wishmaster
