    Black Metal is not my cup of tea but I do like Progenies of the Apocalypse. Very epic. :D

    Dimmu Borgir....I don't like the band behind the music (and other Norwegian black metal), because they're all crazy/insane/psychopaths, but their music is pretty good.

    some backup info on the band (i had to :) )

    Dimmu Borgir's career took a sharp turn. Keyboardist Stian Aarstad left the band due to his obligation to serve in the Norwegian army, thus he was not able to participate in the recording of Devil's Path (1996). That period was also marked by the leave of their bassist Brynjard Tristan and the arrival of Nagash. Stian Aarstad returned for the recording of Enthrone Darkness Triumphant (1997). On the tour to support the album he had trouble attending rehearsals and tour dates, and he was fired from the band. Enthrone Darkness Triumphant was a huge success for the band, and it was their first release signed to the famous German record label Nuclear Blast. It was recorded in the Abyss Studios, owned by Hypocrisy's mainman Peter Tägtgren.

    After the tour for Enthrone Darkness Triumphant the band recruited new members Mustis on keyboards and Astennu on second guitar so that Shagrath could concentrate on vocals.

    Dimmu Borgir's following full-length albums Spiritual Black Dimensions (1999) and Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia (2001) both met critical acclaim. Some fans accused the band of "selling out" due to the mass audiences which the albums reached.

    Despite regular video play on MTV2 and Fuse TV that their follow-up album would receive, the band has stated that they are not "commercially-oriented," and instead, they simply wish to spread their message to more people. In 2003, Dimmu Borgir used their major record label financial leverage to create a monumental album titled Death Cult Armageddon. Sections of the album were recorded with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra to enhance the classical arrangements which have always augmented the band's style.

    In 2005, the band did a complete re-recording of the Stormblåst album, featuring Hellhammer of Mayhem fame as the session drummer.

    Silenoz has revealed on the Dimmu Borgir website that their new album, In Sorte Diaboli, is mixed and ready for mastering. According to a recent myspace bulletin posted by the official Dimmu Borgir myspace crew, the album will be released April 24, 2007. The album artwork was recently released on February 14, 2007 on a promotional webpage for the album.

    I love both projects Dimmu Borgir and Old Man's Child
