Is there no bounds the mighty Dimmu can not cross? Is Stian the son of Satan, brought forth upon the surface of the Earth to bring about the downfall of christianity?

Congrats to Dimmu!

haha, can you imagine how funny it must be to see Dimmu borgir and John Mayer in the same list for the first time? Must have made a few people sh** their pants I'm sure.

After In sorte, I can't wait for a new cd from these guys, perhaps the only thing that could get me more excited than the Amon Amarth cd did would be new stuff from dimmu. : l

Now Playing: Dimm Borgir- Chosen Legacy

No sound at all just the video. I even raised the volume to the max and yet nothing.

Just a reminder if someone knows the solution: everything works except the wacken performance which has no sound.

A person I know who works for a retailer that sells the Dimmu DVD says that ALL of the DVDs are defective and are to be sent back. No matter where you buy it, it will be defective. I would suggest that you take back the DVD to whatever retailer you purchased it from and get a refund.

The last borgir cd i think was there best ever, the dvd is the best metal dvd ive ever seen, just beating out cannibal corpse, more importantly borgir is one of the best live bands in metal you will ever see, mixing and stage pressence.....ive only honestly been a borgir fan since may of 2007, when i discovered them accidentally, since then i have been hooked. Have seen them live twice bought all there cds and dvds and has become my favorite metal band.
The writting and creativity of this band is so genuine and so pure, satan himself could not have done it better. Is this the best black metal group ever? By far and away i think so, if not someone please say who and why..... keep supporting this band to all of u and long live black metal.......jason

Yeah, no joke. It was a manufacturers error. Expect restocks in some stores as early as next week.

And Emperor is the best black metal band ever imo. But that's just me.
