Copy and paste from the EDT thread:

This has some catchiness to it and I quite like some parts but it's just not what I want from Dimmu, whether that's fair or not. They did promise a more BM-centric sound but it was more like boneless Abrahadabra. It felt very sparse and open. I guess they wanted to leave room for the orchestral bits to breathe, but they did it kind of poorly.

Those youtube comments say it all :

60% Nightwish + 30% Therion + 10% (old) Dimmu Borgir = this.

This song just makes me want to put on Blessings Upon the Throne of Tyranny. If they're gonna do ultra polished symphonic black metal, give it some gusto.

They should just cut the first minute of this song. The rest is ok.

Ho boy the high school me would love this, but I suppose that's what added perspective does to you. I think it'd be easier to accept this if they completely ditched the black metal facade, because that's all it is at this point (they dress like a black metal carnival already); this is to black metal as The Astonishing is to progressive metal. In all honesty, I rather enjoyed this and could see myself adding a track or two from this album to my liked songs on Spotify, but I kept expecting Simone Simons show up in runny face paint at any second.

Sounds a LOT like Ghost if you ask me. I'll still listen to the album, but this sure didn't catch my attention. Drums are way too far in the background of the mix.

Start with two number nines, a number nine large, a number six with extra dip, a number seven, two number forty-fives, one with cheese, and a large soda.

so listen to nine twice before moving to six? Listen to seven, then go back to two again? instructions unclear.

The more ppl complain Dimmu is not black metal enough anymore, the less black metal they get with every next release lol

guess it's time to start liking them for what they've turned into. then again, perhaps not

Ye I can confirm the nightwish and therion vibes. If people complained earlier about them selling out, we can now know for sure that they didn't, they just wrote shittier music. they did sell out now

I will agree with that logic when the band stops saying stuff like this:

"the album itself is a tribute to our own history and the Norwegian black metal history."

It's stupid to say that and then move away from the sound of Norwegian black metal.

that from a band as prestigious and experienced as dimmu borgir and with the resources at their disposal it's insulting to behold how 'just okay' it is

To answer Eons' question, I think The Serpentine Offering is what you might want to check out, but I haven't listened to this band in years so God knows if it is how I remember it.

Well, by DCA they were supposedly injecting strong alcohol into their veins. Alcoholism explains it all well.

well, their last great album was Death Cult Armageddon IMO. They did release several good songs in the following years, but the last two albums were definitely "meh" as a whole, especially Abrahadabra. The new track is pretty mediocre, but let's wait for the rest of the album.

Stormblast re-release rules but def not better than the original for me.

And the more I listen to this track the more I dig it tbh. Better/more memorable than anything on Abrahadabra imo.

Yeah it does grow on you after a couple listens that's for sure. Still I hope that's the poppy single and the rest of hte songs are less like that. Kinda proved true with Gateways, though not entirely I guess

for me it's mixed because my least favourite part about the song is the chorus but i quite like everything else. the melodic leads are great but man, that goofy choir chorus kills the momentum whenever it tries to grow on me.

The problem is that those melodic riffs of theirs are rehashes of melodies they played on earlier albums. Not as glaring as in "Dimmu Borgir" for example, which basically ripped off kings of the carnival creation
