A welcome return to the high standards set by DCA for Dimmu. The orchestra is back and sounding great. The album is complete in its absolute quality and there is not one filler song on the entire album. Ignore the earlier review of this album that gave it 2 stars the guys entitled to his opinion but its not accurate for what will be the vast majority of Dimmus long term fans. Buy it Dimmu are back in business. Highly recommend this box set if youre a fan of fantasy artwork also.

Abrahadabra. Every time I think I'm getting bored of Dimmu Borgir and moving on to something a little less extreme, or a little less cheesy, they release something else amazing and I'm sucked back in! As I see it, all the bands of the same generation as Dimmu (Cradle of Filth, My Dying Bride etc) have seen better days and are gradually declining (although not to say that they aren't still worth a listen). However, by contrast, Dimmu Borgir simply seem to get better and better. "In Sorte Diaboli" stunned me and renewed my faith in what I had thought was a dying formula (black metal vocals, heavy riffs, dark imagery and epic, verging on the ridiculous, orchestral arrangements). I was suspecting "Abrahadabra" might do the same, and it did.

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...

I bought DCA back in 2003, and never thought to see if Dimmu Borgir had any other albums because I was so obsessed with that one!

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!

In my opinion the album Death Cult Armageddon has since it's release been one of the very most spectacular and monumental albums ever created. I was surely disappointed to listen to In Sorte Diaboli, which for me was a disappointment, although critically acclaimed. After the depart of Mustis and Vortex I feared that Dimmu was dead,

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!!

I loved the track Gateways, which led me to get this album. Upon listening to some of the other tracks, I was thrown off course a little bit as they're exploring new avenues. However I persisted and was rewarded with a great album. It's more melodic and definitely cinematic, but still has a dark aura about it and has strong tunes. It's Dimmu's most versatile album and I'm looking forward to where they go from here.

If yoi as me you cannot get better than this when it comes to the good heavy dark stuff pity the bassist who used to do some vocals on thier other stuff is gone but its none the worse for that, one of the best tracks is bimmu borgir there is just something that really makes me take notice there is just that thing that does something to you that you cannot put your finger on but it hits the spot if you get me anyway all I can say is just buy this album if your into the real good stuff you will like this.
