Dimmu Borgir - In Sorte Diaboli
Dimmu Borgir! What can you say about this brilliant Black/Death Metal band. Release after release! Never a crappy album. My fav for a long time was Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia. And then came In Sorte Diaboli.
Its is a concept album (From Wiki)...
"In Sorte Diaboli is the band's first concept album, with a story located in medieval Europe. It is about a priest who begins to doubt his faith, and then ends up taking the place of the Antichrist. "There's this dude that works as a priest's assistant, and after a while he just discovers that he has nothing to do with Christianity," Silenoz says. "He just sort of has this awakening and realizes that he has different abilities and different powers and is leaning more to the dark side." The conclusion of the story in the booklet implies that the story of In Sorte Diaboli is not yet finished, possibly hinting that Dimmu Borgir's next studio album will continue this concept."
I bought this album off www.gomusic.ru. But will have to get the original. A must have for my collection.
