Most notably on "Kings of The Carnival Creation" and "The Maelstrom Mephisto". Lets just say that it holds a sweet spot of nostalgia for me. Simen "Vortex" Hestnæs, the band's bass player was apparently the head of the all the clean vox of this record, and he sounds iffy at best in fitting along with the music alone. However, there are still a lot of cool riffs to find: “Architecture of a Genocidal Nature”, before getting awfully boring as I said, starts out with some funny thrash riffs that will make you bang your head, and also on “The Maelstrom Mephisto” and “Hybrid Stigmata - The Apostasy” you will find some excellent riffs. Nevertheless, I beg to differ. These metal albums celebrate 20th anniversaries in 2021. Let’s explain to Dimmu Borgir that, if they worked harder on the few savable parts instead of adding billions of inconsistent ideas to make the songs longer and “more complex”, they would have made a solid symphonic black metal album. And this is where I think there is still ample room for improvement for Dimmu Borgir. Oh God. Even considering the messy song structure, a person can at least see his or her need for punishment fulfilled. “Kings of the Carnival Creation” (a very fitting title for Dimmu Borgir, huh?) I would have to make my remarks on the vocals first. Condition: ... Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia [New Vinyl LP] UK - Import. Well, they sound like if Dimmu Borgir was embarrassingly trying to emulate Pain, Fear Factory or stuff like that, but without enough charm. I really like this song. Even with the keyboards, the pwnage is there, thanks to that one riff. is the epitome of this annoying formula. There is also enough variety present to make this an enthralling album, with many tremolo sections and fast interludes. But the more I was listening to this work, the more I got used to its sound and after all, I see no reason to blame the band or their label for this production. It does differ from the traditional black metal sound; but again, why should someone necessarily stick to tradition to make good music? The best part would be the one from the middle where Mustis plays some beautiful orchestral parts and Vortex joins in for a few seconds with his fantastic singing. Then, luckily, some of the most powerful and kickass riffs of the album come in, but, after a while, this shit repeats again, this time even more insistent than before. Of course, that has no bearing on the music, but what else am I supposed to focus on? Dimmu Borgir try so hard to come off as evil - you can just hear it; it bleeds from their music like pus from a fresh wound - but really, go listen to Ninnghizhidda if you want evil with symphonics and class. One of my favorite things on this entire record in particular though is definitely the drumming. Dispatched within: 14 Days. Tristania Beyond the Veil (1999) 185: 185. Galder, Mustis and Silenoz deserve a great deal of praise as well. One cannot blame the dudes for having created predictable songs, because their tool box is very big and nobody knows in advance which tool they will choose next. Of course, the production lends the songs a clear appearance. The blast beating wrenches the eardrums and the guitar has tremolo picking frenzies varying in tempos, bar chords that are heavy plus thick, lead playing that's fairly decent, synthesizers to create a demonic sense of idealism for typical black metal mixed in with melodic riffs. Sadly, the epic part of the album is about to end. The album doesn't follow any kind of pattern but rather just limps and hops from one track to another. Still, it’s worth hearing for the awesome parts (which are very good) and as an interesting and mostly successful experiment in mixing an orchestra with extreme metal. Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia (PEM) falls victim to this It’s probably for this reason that Dimmu Borgir decided to make a more “complex” album, trying to experiment with modern influences and even with industrial elements. IRC | “Black metal is a vast genre and that’s okay. Yes it's over polished and over produced, but who cares. The album is filled to the brim with pompous lines, bombastic sound effects and gigantic constructions. So, what could I say? Darkseed Midnight Solemnly Dance (1996) 184: 184. The band had changed a lot with it, it was a new style, a new beginning. Hearing him live, I can understand, because he doesn’t warm up his voice enough and fucks up pretty often (or he is not fully sober, I can’t tell). The album begins with Fear and Wonder, a clever symphonic intro, courtesy of Mustis, which sets the mood perfectly for the entire album. They seem to have an air of superiority here, a confidence in their abilities. While this is not as good as the previous 2, Enthrone Darkness Triumphant, and Spiritual Black Dimensions, I still see this as a solid release, it's still Black Metal, and I think the musicianship on this album is very tight, they had some really good ideas for this album, and in my opinion, they worked well. That said, this is not the case of "Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia". Again, Barker's drum kicks were kind of annoying, but still the music was the highlight. Next comes the most repetitive part of the album, the trio of "IndoctriNation", "The Maelstrom Mephisto", and "Absolute Sole Right". Other than that end of vocals, the clean vocals on this album, while not near as abundant, they're pretty cheesy and do almost nothing for the music. The shaping of the modern Dimmu Borgir sound, for which they’re known/loved/hated these days, truly emerged here after having slowly started with the monumental Enthrone Darkness Triumphant several years earlier. Gone are the insanely frightening growls from Spiritual Black Dimensions, which was the height of Shagrath, vocally, in my opinion. Somewhat technical riffs are delivered in a precise manner, and one cannot doubt the band has the command of melody. Amongst other qualities that the record contains such as guitar solos, keyboards and of course, vocals. Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia ... and then transfornming into the instrumental track perfection or vanity.The cover of the twisted sister song "burn in hell" is a brilliant version of this song and deserves a "hats off" for doing it. I'm a guitar player but I've always been fascinated by incredible drummers, as a top notch drummer can really make or break an album. Nick was always talented be it with his well know ex outfit Cradle, or with other bands he has since played with, but still his best delivery on any album from any band. Kings of the Carnival Creation is probably the best song on the album. Does it matter? While you were fucking around with your cool Dimmu pals, Cradle were making other two masterpieces (“Midian” and “Damnation and a Day”); then, they began to sell out too, producing that awful abomination called “Thornography” (worse than most stuff ever produced by Dimmu Borgir), but that’s another story. Even more ludicrous are the claims that this is Black Metal, because this is the silliest, most pompous, overblown crap I've ever heard. Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia este cel de-al cincilea album de studio al formației Dimmu Borgir.Este primul album cu Galder, ICS Vortex și Nicholas Barker. The songs are all fast-paced, aggressive, and "intense" (at least compared to the rest of the album) with similar sounding guitar parts and nearly identical vocal arrangements. It's a pity because, technically, the band is very strong. It won't sell to Black Metal fans because it's really, really lame shit, and it won't sell to fans of more melodic Metal because it's too harsh and blasting for their ears to handle, but people are eating this up like chicken wings anyway, so I guess that leaves something to be said about the mainstream's taste in music. Well, there are still some good symphonic ideas on “Hybrid Stigmata - The Apostasy”. ... »Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia« (2 LP black vinyl) »Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia« (2 LP blue vinyl - mailorder exclusive!) The guitars are heavy as fuck. One thing that can be said about Dimmu Borgir is they have their musicianship in order. They suddenly get all thrash on your ass, with some serious ability to bang your fucking head. I haven't heard many Dimmu Borgir records, but this one is quite different from Stormblåst. Thankfully, Dimmu Borgir realizes the fault in doing so. They used to be good though, I think that many people can agree with me. Still one of the highlights of the album. The production is perfect, maybe too perfect. Godless Savage Garden and Spiritual Black Dimensions were two great fiasco's. To some people it apparently does; to me I just enjoy the great orchestral anthems, the cinematic movements and darkly melodic metal tracks. This is the track where Shagrath uses... oh sorry, I meant abuses the robot vocals effect. When ‘Blessings Upon the Throne of Tyranny’ explodes with that fantastic riff from Galder after the soft moroseness of ‘Fear and Wonder’, it’s a beautiful moment. Some of you might be huge fans of Industrial music/metal, In that case watch out for Puritania by all means. As stated a million times before, the drums are far too loud in the mix. It’s fast and melodic and just amazing. You could listen to the first three songs and get an idea of what the rest of the album will sound like. I was more into death and thrash, and to a large extent, still am. Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia (2001) Alive in Torment (2001) Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia je piaty štúdiový album symfonickej black metalovej skupiny Dimmu Borgir. Just closing my eyes while listening him sing brings me to a Roman arena in which he sits on a throne with a golden cup filled with blood in his left hand, and he moves his right hand and orders the armies of Gladiators inside the arena to battle each other to death. Dimmu Borgir - Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia [New Vinyl LP] UK - Import. Actually, Galder’s Kreator like melodies are very memorable, like on the second track, adding flavor to the song. Aside from the mechanical drum kicks, the rest of the music is full of darkness and despair. It gives the impression of just another release cranked out of the Dimmu factory. On this album, drums are played by... Nicholas Barker. Also, a lot of the times when they do have a riff, it's a shitty Gothenburg-style riff. The last track is another instrumental, "Perfection and Vanity", that while very good is not up to par with "Fear and Wonder". Yes, they did move on from pure black metal but that doesn’t mean they’re pure shit. Here Vortex, has several standout moments. The synthesizer in mid-song actually breakout into a danceable rhythm that I think could even be compared to the likes of "Stick Stickly" by Attack Attack!. Also, some really bad Pantera-ish halfthrash riffs abound, especially in the song "Puritania", which just has some of the worst ideas the album has to offer, with the stupid robot vocals and whatnot. Its configuration ensures a lively number, flattening guitars alternate with howling keyboards and I wish I could write such a piece of music, although the kitschy vocals at 4:32 minutes are too much of a good thing. Bonus track ‘Burn in Hell’, the Twisted Sister cover, is a hell of a lot of fun, again, with a great performance from Vortex. Of course, it is the least kvlt or pure, but when done right (like with Dissection) songs can be flawless. (This is the predetermined breaking point for some wise guys to scream: Dimmu's pop music shit is no black metal at all!) The second half of the album is perhaps less strong than the beginning - but this is partly because the first three tracks (excluding intro Fear and Wonder) are very strong - especially Kings of The Carnival Creation where the mixture of ideas almost work at perfection: Dimmu Borgir need to write more songs like this. Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia; Licensed to YouTube by ... Dimmu Borgir - Blessings Upon The Throne Of Tyranny Cover (Guitar) - Duration: 5:27. I mean, look at the song titles, and see awful puns like "IndoctriNation" and terrible, intentional misspellings like "Sympozium" and especially the brainless inanity of "Absolute Sole Right" and "Perfection or Vanity." Dimmu Borgir seems to be taking Cradle of Filth’s route of diluted and forgettable releases of late, with every new album released being worse than the one before it. This is a big difference compared to predecessor Spiritual Black Dimensions, where the orchestral bits were all over the place and completely ruined the album. Too many crappy keyboard interludes, and generally riffless passages where the vocals or the drums dominate. “Puritania” is a very heavy song and is weird at times but always seems to leave an impression on me. Dimmu Borgir's Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia album could merely be titled "My First Black Metal Record" and would nearly be entirely appropriate. Although it only features as a intro, it is one of the most enjoyable songs on the album. I always felt that this Dimmu album was their best. At last, the most redeeming factory is the fact that the strings overrule every other instrument. The guitars can be heard loud and clear, the bass is there, the vocals are mixed just perfectly, and while the drums are quite up in front - well, they damn better should be. A straight two minutes of "sci-fi" sounding vocal samples, repetitive synth and guitar, and very predictable vocal samples are the "highlights". Here, Silenoz looks back on the point where Dimmu went from cult heroes to global superstars… Long live the legends. Want more? The last of the three is the only song that differs from the others. The Japanese edition features a bonus CD with two tracks, including a cheeky cover of Twisted Sister's "Burn in Hell" and two videos. Given the fact Dimmu Borgir seem to have their technical works in order, where does the problem start? While Dimmu Borgir's tainted past lies beneath the tr00 black metal oddities, their newer "omg dey sold out!1" sound is what the band is ultimately known for. Yay! First of all, there’s Puritania: a short song with massive industrial elements throughout; this is basically loud, epic drumming and simplistic vocal arrangements. Sadly there are too many other songs which basically suck. Sure, Nick Barker is a great drummer, and he does a good job on this album (if not a little sloppy here and there) but at least you get the sense that hes giving it his all.
