Dimmu Borgir (/ˌdɪmuː ˈbɔrɡɪr/) is a Norwegian black metal band from Oslo, Norway, formed in 1993. The name is derived from Dimmuborgir, a volcanic formation in Iceland, the name of which means "dark cities" or "dark castles/fortresses" in Icelandic, Faroese and Old Norse. The band has been through numerous lineup changes over the years; guitarist Silenoz and vocalist Shagrath are the only founding members remaining.Dimmu Borgir was founded in 1993 by Tyler Macey, Silenoz and Tjodalv; the band released an EP in 1993 entitled Inn i evighetens mørke ("Into the Darkness of Eternity" in English). This short EP sold out within weeks, and the band followed up with the 1994 full-length album For All Tid ("For All Time" in English). This album featured vocal contributions by Vicotnik of Ved Buens Ende and Dødheimsgard and Aldrahn of Dødheimsgard and Zyklon-B. The initial line-up consisted of Shagrath playing drums with Tjodalv on guitar and Silenoz contributing lead vocals. This line-up changed before the release of Stormblåst (translates to "Stormblown") on Cacophonous Records in 1996, an album considered by many to be their finest.It is also the last album which features all lyrics written and sung in Norwegian.
Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia is the fifth studio album by Norwegian black metal band Dimmu Borgir. It was released by Nuclear Blast Records in 2001.This is also the first album to feature Nicholas Barker, Galder and ICS Vortex as full-time members and the first time the band used real orchestral instrumentation in place of the keyboard lines.The first time I listened to this album I was a little shocked - the sound has changed in many ways compared to the Spiritual Black Dimensions album. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but compaired to the other albums this one is just not as strong... This time more symphonic elements added, which made the album more melodic [obviously!] and less 'black'. For all the true black metal fans out there this album would probably find it quite disappointing. That's the same thing that happened after Cradle of Filth's "Midian".The intro, Fear And Wonder, is a good song, thanks to Mustis - he is one of the best keyboard players out there. Blessings Upon The Throne of Tyranny follows, a great fast song, with some awesome drumming by Nick Barker. King Of The Carnival Creation is the first song where you can hear the clean vocals of ICS Vortex. I must say his clean vocals are totally amazing, some of the best I've ever heard. Another song that features clean vocals is Hybrid Stigmata - The Apostacy, my personal favourite. The biggest surprise on this album was the song Puritania - totally different, with some almost industrial elements, definitely not what I expected to hear from Dimmu Borgir, but the result is not that bad. The outro of the album is an instrumental track, Perfection of Vanity. The CD also features a bonus track, a cover of Twisted Sisters - it sounds good, but they didn't really changed much of the original.Some people say Dimmu Borgir have sold out with this album, because it's more accessible and made some good numbers in sales. I don't think so - what really matters is that it's still a good album, it's only natural that the band evolves and changes its sound. It's also a perfect introduction into black metal - after that you can go digging deeper underground if you want. However, if you are not new to black metal, you better go find Dimmu Borgir's older albums.
