Dimmu Bor­gir

Eo­nian

Total Guitar - - MONITOR -

Heavy metal has al­ways had an air of ex­trav­a­gance and few, if any, have em­bod­ied that more than Dimmu Bor­gir. In­cred­i­bly, they’ve upped the op­u­lence of 2010’s Abra­hadabra to cre­ate a sym­phonic black metal mon­ster with Eo­nian that borders on the lu­di­crous. The om­nipresent or­ches­tra and choir dom­i­nate the cin­e­matic grandeur of Al­phaaeonomega and Ri­te­of­pas­sage, largely con­sign­ing vo­cal­ist Sha­grath to a sup­port­ing role. The sear­ing gui­tars of Silenoz and Galder do well to cut through the mael­strom, adding a chill­ing earth­i­ness to Coun­cilof­wolvesand Snakes while drum­ming out an omi­nous march dur­ing Light­bringer. An act of glo­ri­ous lu­nacy. Adam Rees
