Although the last couple of years have seen Norway's leading elite melodic black metal act Dimmu Borgir release a mini live E.P. "Alive In Torment" and the C.D./D.V.D. set "World Misanthropy" , it's the studio follow up to 2001's "Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia" that fans have been really waiting for with high anticipation.

I am not a great fan of black metal, especially not fairly well-produced "raw"/"brutal"/"intense" black metal. I listen to some atmospheric stuff, but that's all. I am not a great fan of symphonic metal either, in my opinion not many bands succeed to create symphonic metal with enough quality. Rhapsody of Fire is one band that manages to do it, and Therion as well even if their symphonic arrangements are more in the background in some way. But with this album, the band Dimmu Borgir has managed to create my favourite symphonic metal album, and probably also my favourite black metal album ever. It's also definitely my favourite Dimmu Borgir album, and I know a lot of people will disagree here...

This album was fantastic. I think if anyone were ever going to listen to Dimmu for the first time, this is the album they should listen to.

Yes, it's very impressive with this sound, all with this blooms, and tiny little details to make it bombastic. But on the other side, I can understand all the trve-blackers, why they hate the newer DB albums.

This album is incredible. And amazing. Just as black metal as it must be. The sound is epic

I have a version of this album with the ugliest motherfucking album cover I've ever seen in my entire life.

Excellent album, even if it slightly overshadowed by 'Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia'. I hope they play 'Unorthodox Manifesto' at Bloodstock this year....

He's got a strong voice.
The riffs are good.
Nice mixture of genres.
Nuff said.

It's time to remember a classic:

----
By blood... Resurrection?
By body... Redemption?
By God... Domination?
By Pilate... Crucifixion!

More dumbed down and accessible. At least tolerable, sounds better than Dimmu pretending to play black metal. Lol at the failed Immortal like riffing thrown randomly into the songs. At first I thought Shagrath was trying to sound like Abbath in some songs only to check up the lineup and learn that actually Abbath did provide some vocals on this. The clean vocals on progenies of the apocalypse are just everyday over the top nonsensical power metal wankery and the song in itself is one of the worst you will ever hear.

You are not metal enough until you visit Kenya. The cradle of mankind, where man learnt first to work with stones and first enjoyed the sounds produced by banging stones which later influenced metal in all its sounds and genres.
