Format: Audio CD
For their eighth studio album, Dimmu Borgir got a little more creative. They reached into their bag of tricks and pulled out a 48-piece philharmonic orchestra/choir from Prague. They then blended this orchestra in with their sterile black metal. The result was an album which is considered by most to be their best and most creative work to date. The orchestra, which helps to make "Death Cult Armageddon" sound epic and expansive, is sprinkled on, alongside some female backing vocals. Plus, some keyboards are wisely thrown in.

The orchestra really shines on track two, "Progenies of the Great Apocalypse," where some cool piano playing makes an entrance. This song also balances clean singing (which is a rare occurrence) and snarly vocals well. "Blood Hunger Doctrine" combines more crunchy riffs and keyboards, and it ends with a single, cold note from a piano. And after the blistering guitar work and driving drums are over, "Cataclysm Children" turns to piano playing (which actually sounds rather pretty, here). Finally, track nine, "Eradication Instincts Defined," combines peaceful choir singing with violins and a brass horn of some kind.

But if you're looking for some great, old school black metal, it remains in tact here, as well. "Vredesbyrd" has machine gun riffs which almost bob in places. "For the World..." has more propulsive riffs and fast, all over the place drumming, and "Allehelgens Dod I Helveds Rike" features drumming which is so fast, it sounds like it could be a drum machine.

So, "Death Cult Armageddon" is full of fiery riffs, inhumanly talented drumming, and snarly vocals, but it also has some ear candy. The final sound is very full and explosive. Thus, this album is for all types of Dimmu Borgir fans, because if you're looking for something new, "Death Cult Armageddon" brings some innovation to the table; but it also has plenty of head banging worthy material to please old school fans.

I have been a Dimmu Borgir fan for well over four years now, and have seen them live twice. Now, I have a lot of problems with some of these "reviews" on Amazon here.
Some of these problems begin with idiots who who will label anything "nu-metal". It reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials where every other minute people were screaming "WITCH!!" "SHES A WITCH!!" over even the tinniest thing. Dimmu Borgir is NOT, nor ever will be nu-metal. Sold out??? I don't know about other people but i consider selling out a "Metallica story", meaning when you begin to get regular large radio station air play constantly and you tour with "yo yo yo" bands like Linkin Park, that to me, is a sell out from a band who used to be the pioneers of thrash metal (I mean Metallica of course).
Just because Dimmu is trying to evolve their sound without completley alienating their true fan base (IE, In Flames and Soilwork), does not mean they are going to be another Metallica.
Stormblast was a good album, however all the lyrics are in Norwegian, and since I am no Viking, I can't understand them one bit, even though the music is brilliant. So all you hooked on Stormblast and Stormblast alone, if you are not happy with Dimmu's newest offerings, then turn to your redundent over done black metal, like Immortal or Darkthrone or worse, your "something like black metal but not, but it sucks either way" offering in Cradle of Filth.
Now that that is out of the way, onto Dimmu Borgir's latest album entitled "Death Cult Armageddeon"
This latest cd is simply put, awesome. The production as in all of Dimmu's albums, is excellent, you can hear every instrument, and the vocals are audible and not drowned out in anyway.

Dimmu Borgir is -

Vocal - Shagrath

Guitar - Silenoz

Guitar - Galder

Bass - Vortex

Keyboard - Mustis

Drums - Nicholas Barker

Dimmu Borgir was formed in 1993 by Shagrath and Galder and have not cease to amaze and dazzle fans since then. Dimmu Borgir has yet produced another symphonic metal masterpiece. This time they brought in a 48 piece orchestra from Prague, which includes a full brass section. This new cd features fantastic production, different from many other black metal bands. But there is the contreversy: Does poor production classify you in the black metal subgenre? I didn't think so. These guys are as black as it gets, and their musicianship proves it. Shagrath's voice has improved much, and is more demonic and evil than ever before. I think this cd show's off his best vocals. A downfall is that Vortex's clean singing isn't as exposed on this cd as it is on their previous cd's. When it is sung though, ex: "Progenies of the Great Apocalypse", it is as hauntingly mesmerizing as ever.

"DCA's" songs are also "musically round" on this album, kudos to the orchestra. "Allegiance" starts the cd off with sort of a march like song. It's not like other two minute intros cd's usually have but is a full song instead. "Progenies of the Great Apocalypse" is the best song on this album. The intro is filled with breakdown guitars and the orchestra filling it up in the background. "Leper's Among Us" has an intro like I've never seen Dimmu use before, but Galder plays it off well.
