dimmu borgir abrahadabra

Originally written for AngryMetalGuy. World Misanthropy The Invaluable Darkness. Rather than being content to be a fun, evil band, DB seem to think they are a ‘relevant’ act with some kind of message, and their songwriting has made room for a lot of self-important huffing and puffing. Instead, we get a lot of choral parts, sung by the “Schola Cantorum” choir. Events Now online Today. Most symphonic metal albums listen like a metal band with an orchestra along for the ride, while this album sounds like the exact opposite for most of its duration. And with the orchestra on the background, one can image the New Year orchestral performance with a hobo conducting.

Dimmu Borgir – Abrahadabra Review

However as dimnu album drones on, it is clearly apparent that this is NOT such. They are also polished to the point where they sound fake. That’s because the song has some form of melody and coherence, and ends on a pretty damn epic note. An album title consisting of one word goes hand-in-hand with the new material”.

Honestly, have you even read Lovecraft? I did everything I could to like this album, and I succeeded, to a degree. You need to read the lyrics for Gateways to see the irony here! I suppose Dimmu Borgir ‘s Chosen Legacy is, in their own abrhaadabra I do like the album, but it’s just nowhere near comparable to their previous releases, all the way down the line from For Al Tid up to In Sorte Diaboli.


I understand people dont like it cuz it doesnt sound as harsh as they used to, but as a symphonic metal fan its a great album and shouldnt be disregarded jus because it isnt what people expected to hear. Lovecraft ‘s Elder Gods. Such is not the case here. I must confess that there is some black metal to be found under the extreme half-thrash metal which garnishes the orchestral music, but it’s like watching a soccer game, when a player is approaching to score a goal without having getting a chance to hit the ball.

Chess with the Abyss had some decent choirs and strings here and there, but the rest was just bland.

Dimmu Borgir – Abrahadabra Review

It is a fantastic album, but it still has its flaws, albeit they are minor. European Top Albums [24]. I’ll add that never before has a Dimmu Abragadabra record been such an ambitious undertaking. Again, I feel like the band is taking toomany ideas at once and trying to articulate them in a good way, but not succeeding very well. The new blood dimum into the band either has little say or little care of what comes of it all.

Polish Albums Chart [30]. Every song is riff-heavy.

SwagLordPicklePeeMarch 25th, Any gain or presence in his voice almost seemed programmed, like the producer ran his voice through a Line 6 combo amp on the highest gain setting imaginable. It stood out pretty well, with Agnete’s vocals and the effective use of black metal blasting and orchestra. The single “Gateways” is a pretty good example of what this album is about: And it’s not just this song, this whole damn formula happens several times over the length of the album.

Everything is nice until Born Treacherous kicks in. I will share the sentiment of many that the band’s eponymous epic “Dimmu Borgir” is the clear highlight. And if only that song was to be the only flaw of the album All in all, “Abrahadabra” is not the borgirr best album, but also not the abortion some people describe.

Some loved Death Cult Armageddon’s sweeping high’s and lows with the grand barahadabra, some hated it. MetalHeadX2September 28th, These are both fantastic songs, both being incredibly epic thanks to the orchestrations, the choirs, the riffing and the amazing female vocals in the second one. It features some great classical symphonic strings, amazing female vocals and some quite good guitar solos.

I enjoyed every song on it that once the end came I was striving for more although this proves Dimmu made a very solid album that left fans craving. A little bit too greatly, in fact.
