Logo - Dimmu Borgir

Venue: L’Amour’s (Brooklyn NY)
Date: 12-12-2003
Opener: Nevermore, Children Of Bodom, Hypocrisy
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

The Dark Gods Of Norwegian Black Metal brought their brand of mayhem to the capacity crowd of L’Amour’s in Brooklyn New York this past week. Believe me this was a night to be reckoned with, I had only been exposed to the music of Dimmu Borgir very recently so my knowledge of the set list would be quite limited for this performance.

“Death Cult Armageddon” by Dimmu Borgir

Artist: Dimmu Borgir
Title: “Death Cult Armageddon”
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
Release Date: 9/9/2003
Genre: Symphonic Black Metal
Rating: 8/10

It was at the suggestion of some Friends who tread the path of much darker and heavier metal than I normally listen to that I decided to find some music by Dimmu Borgir. Dimmu, who hail from the Nordic Lands are currently considered the Kings Of Black Metal and for good reason. I will admit to you all that the Black Metal genre has escaped my notice until I played this CD. I instantly became a fan of this group, and hoped I would get to see them perform in a live situation soon. It was late December last year that I was able to sate this urge at a L’Amour appearance and they were brutal when experienced in person. The band is fronted by Shagrath (vocals), and rounded out by Silenoz (guitars), Galder (also known for his work with Old Man’s Child on lead guitar), Mustis (keyboards), Vortex (bass guitar and clean vocals) & Nick Barker (drums).
