Music Review: Abrahadabra

Dimmu Borgir is here with their ninth album. It’s called Abrahadabra (hilarious, I know) and it’s got the fanboys awestruck. Kicking the others out wasn’t such a bad idea after all, because it gave Dimmu Borgir a chance to show they can suck even without those dudes. Sticking to the same old formula may not be such a bad thing, but in Dimmu Borgir‘s case it’s terrible. Fucking boring parts with orchestral shit coming in every now and then, absolutely ridiculous female vocals, promising attempts at experimentation gone wrong… no wonder the fans are over the moon. Overdramatic as always, these Norwegians do exactly as is expected of them and march through the motions without any sign of conviction or soul. Considering Abrahadabra has some decent melodies, how nice would it be if Dimmu Borgir fired the orchestra, fucked and killed the chick singer, and multiplied the blast-beats? I did like these guys when I got introduced to black metal (which was over a decade ago), so I hope their 10th album is tolerable, because ‘enjoyable’ sounds like too much to ask for right now.

RATING: 2/5

    dimmu fan here….very disappointed with this album. having an orchestra doesnt necessary lead to the creation of good black metal. hope the next one will be something like their stronger albums. mustis’ absence is the most obvious thing on this cd.

      having a first name stolen from a famous bar also doesn’t necessarily mean that you understand Dimmu Borgir well. n did you say you are a dimmu fan. ROFLMFAO!
