Is that supposed to mean something? I don't understand why the band releases that kind of information. I would imagine Dimmu fans are not too concerned with the latest Billboard chart positions.

I know I wrote them off after ICS and Mustis got the boot.
And Gateways didn't exactly make me a believer again.
But............I did download it (leagally lol).
And.........It's probably my favorite one from them.
And yes, I have everything going back to For All Tid.
It's perfect.
Septic Flesh still do the orchestra thing better and Dimmu's "old" fans will still hate it.
But if you like Puritanical and onward, you'll like this one.

it's hard for you to comment about Dimmu Borgir without adding your routine comment of how Septic Flesh has superior orchestra involvement. I've noticed you seem to add that opinion in many posts about Dimmu Borgir. I've got them both and can't see how any Septic Flesh album even compares to Abrahadabra.

As a longtime Dimmu fan, the album is great for what it's worth. Vortex was a key member, so it suffers a bit without him. Gateways would have been great if not for that awful woman. Overall it's a very good album for them. Septic flesh could take a few notes on how to properly incorporate an orchestra.

Septic's better.
Septic's better.
Septic's better.
Kidding.
I mention Septic frequently, if I can turn one fan of symphonic black metal on to Septic than I consider it time worth spent.
We'll see when their new album comes out.
I think it's difficult to compare Dimmu and Septic.
Abra is definitly orchestra driven vs. Communion which blends orchesta with metal.
I'm anxious to see if Septic take it even further with the new one.
I do agree though....new Dimmu is good.
Exactly where is Mustis???
Not a peep for a while now.

I love the new album. IMO as far as who incorporated orchestra better...I'm not sure how that's even an issue here. The new Dimmu album is almost entirely orchestral/symphonic. While Septic's album Communion is nothing short of brilliant I have to say Dimmu wins that debate easily. Having said that, very much anticipating Septic's new album :D
