Enthrone Darkness Triumphant (1997) by Dimmu Borgir

Categories: 1997 and Music.

As far as I know, this is the first “melodic” black metal album (it may not be, I’m not a genre obsessive). It’s basically black metal with cheesy keyboards.

I don’t particularly like single-genre albums. But this is loud enough and pummeling enough that it’s alright. I just don’t particularly love a number of the keyboard parts. I understand that this particular thing is this album’s innovation, but I can’t say that I love it.
This is fine. It’s competently played and it’s super loud and brutal. But I can’t see myself coming back to it regularly.

7/10
