    Progenies of the Great Apocalypse is Dimmu Borgir's best song off DCA imo. They really know how to work that orchestra. The video for it is awesome too

    Indeed, that orchestra kicks ass, it sounds so aggressive

    Dimmu Borgir is one of my favorite bands and Death Cult Armageddon rules. If you don't have it yet, pick up Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia while your at it because its a masterpiece. In fact, all of their cds are pretty good. :kickass:

    The voice of Vortex in this song is awesome:headbang:.
    In fact Vortex's voice is amazing in any song, "Kings of the carnival creation" in puritanical.
    :OMG:

    Yeah I agree with all of you. I'm not too familiar with the new album yet, only have a burn but track nine is great too. Try the song Kings of the Carnival Creation off Puritanical... its a brilliant song.

    The whole album is pretty damn good. Get the complete uncensored version of the video if you can. It's much better than the one shown on Headbanger's Ball. I forget where I got mine but it's out there.

    Even if you prefer DCA / PEM , EDT isn't what I'd call a mediocre album .
    It contains most of best Dimmu songs like Mourning Palace , Entrance or Prudence's Fall (sp?)

    For All Tid and Stormblast are two of the most boring albums I've ever listened to. Other than those, you really can't go wrong with Dimmu Borgir.

    "For All Tid (Original)" is their best album (but its in a tie with "Stormblast" for best) but "DCA" is pretty good. the only album that needs to be re-released/remastered is "Spiritual Black Dimensions" since the recording levels are all off and the songs are great but it sounds like alot of signals wanting to go through a single speaker.

    Sure . I can't stand the keyboard sound after a few songs , Shargrath's voice was far better too .

    I don't find any Dimmu particularly interesting.

    Progenies is indeed an awesome song, one of the best on DCA, though I find the album as whole rather tepid to say the least.

    Overall, they are a good band....they're much better at writing individual songs than whole album's worth of material. I'd say Enthrone was thier best album as a whole peice, but every album has both masterpeices and filler.

    If Dimmu were to release a "best-of" album, I might buy it. Like SculptedCold said, they are better at writing individual songs than an entire album. Every album of theirs seems to have 2-3 really good to great songs, and the rest is just mediocre at best. Of course, if they ever did a best-of album, they'd probably pick the songs I don't like.

    What's a Progenie???? I hate all these false BM bands who try to pass themselves as BM by using ridiculously long titles (Immortal are/were the exception)

    Stormblast didn't irritate me so I guess it's my favorite DB album by default.
