UG has image sigs now? Cool.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

They're alright.

Their earlier stuff was far far better.

Many hate them because they changed their sound to fit more mainstream metal, which is usually a big no-no in the black metal community.

Indeed, I was tricked.

I would feel ashamed, if it wasn't for my uncomfortably large penis.

seriously, such a dumb name

Actually it means "Dark Castle" in Norwegian.

Named after a rock formation.

As far as "dumb names" go, it's not.

Rest assured, it sounds stupid even in their native tongue.

if mainstream metal means more melody and more generally coherent songs, then ok. maybe their newest album isn't so great, but i really think the two before it were truly awesome.

i was reluctant to vote 'no, its ear rape' because ear rape implies at least 1 person is enjoying it
^thats probably sarcasm^

Death Metal bands are very simple, little to no vocal schemes, just normal, mono-tone, monotonous growling and an assload of breakdowns.

It's pretty assured that if any of you were offered a huge record deal for a black metal band, you'd take it. It's also pretty obvious that they took it for the money, being that the majority of them, or at least founders Shagrath and Silenoz, were in kvlt black metal bands at one point, like Fimbulwinter, Ragnarok, and Nocturnal Breed. Unfortunately, money does indeed control our minds, no matter how nekro you may be.

And reasoning aside, later Dimmu Borgir albums aren't all that great, regardless of the production, quality, and lesser-nekro elements. They have a few songs worth listening to, but the majority is low-rate. Early Dimmu albums, primarily For All Tid, Stormblast, and Enthroned, were absolutely great melodic black metal albums.
