Additional info
Re-recorded version of 1996 album "Stormblåst". Some lyrics are not the same as on the first release.
"Sorgens Kammer" from the original album was stolen from the computer game Agony. Stian Aarstad used the melody without telling the other members.
The band always thought that the song was their own, until the original composer contacted with them. For this reason, the song was not used on Stormblåst MMV, and replaced by a new version called "Sorgens Kammer - Del II".

Recording line-up:
Shagrath: vocals, guitars, bass
Erkekjetter Silenoz: guitars, bass, vocals
Hellhammer: drums
Mustis: keyboards

Staff review by

It's 1996 and a band from Norway named Dimmu Borgir manages to release their second effort, "Stormblast". The expectations from the black metal audience must had been quite big and Dimmu Borgir didn't prove these expectations wrong, on the contrary, they offered a really inspired piece of majestic black metal to the world. What someone could notice from "Stormblast" was an intense will for a lyrical atmosphere, having an epic feeling at times or a more melancholic approach at others. And thus "Stormblast" remained a classic release to the eyes of many black metal fans, up to an extent.

  Why would you ruin a masterpiece like that? it's like they're trying to appeal to all the "faggoths" and "mall goths" .....seriously.

oh and apparently the beautiful Sorgens Kammer and the gorgeous beginning of the opening track......were all stolen which is why they are absent on this release. I understand why they did that, but taking away those parts alone, made the album more empty.

This is awful
