I’ll have a double Dimmu Burger with cheese and fries please!
They are not a hamburger joint but named their band after an Icelandic lava field with volcanic caves and rock formations that is believed to be a gateway to hell.
Their fourth album highlights an improved atmosphere and continued musical sophistication from their last release “Enthroned Darkness Triumphant.”
They have become known for their three named albums with my favorite being “Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia.”
This album does hold its own against any of their releases as the sound is very unique.
There were several members that left the band after this album and Dimmu Borgir continues to rotate out members to this day. Only 3 members remain current since 2001.
Here is the track listing...
1. Reptile 2. Behind The Curtains Of Night-Phantasmagoria 3. Dreamside Dominions 4. United In Unhallowed Grace 5. The Promised Future Aeons 6. The Blazing Monoliths Of Defiance 7. The Insight And The Catharsis 8 Grotesquery Conceiled (Within Measureless Magic) 9. Arcane Lifeforce Mysteria
Platty's Editor Note: An awesome album that makes me squirt 4 out of 5 shots of venom!
