I just heard a Dimmu Borgir song for the first time last night on Loud, and they are definetly a unique black metal band. I'm not crazy about the vocals but I think the music is great, like with the Orchestra/Opera music in the background. But they definetly have talent.

If they're not Black Metal then what are they? Cause I'm pretty sure they're black metal.

post three has a point that some other "real" or "old school" metal bands like mayhem don't see dimmu as black metal because of al the keys. I think they are either on their own unique genre or black metal.

Dimmu borgir is Black Metal, it is just that they mix the syles of more modern black metal like Arch enemy with the roots of black metal which is a extreamly melodic, symphonic, style of music with some heavy things like vocals and guitars thrown in. I do agree that they do not seem like black metal when compaired to emperor or gorgoroth due to their lack of some of the death metal tendancies of those bands. not that that is a problem, it is just that there are different styles of black metal. there may be the more deathy black metal like mayhem and bothory, and there are more symphonic black metal like dimmu borgir, and even a more light rock based style like satyricon. you can't just call a band fag goth because they don't sounds just like the other bands in the black metal genre.

Dimmu Borgir - Stormblast was Melodic Black metal but that all ended there they soon moved on mainstream sounding Symphonic Black Metal and so on and so forth...

as for cradle of filth they are more symphonic goth post-black metal...they suck!!

Cradle of Filth havnt been Black Metal for a loooong time. They pretty much did a Metallica, if that's a fair comparison.

maybe it's just me, but i don't really give a rats a$$ what genre of metal they (Dimmu) fit into. they're good musicians and doing well producing the kind of music they want to make. if you don't like it, don't listen. it's not that difficult of a concept.
