Wow, have they come into their own in this one. Amazon, you need to give us more stars to rate CD’s like “Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia,” 5/5 simply doesn’t give it justice. I’ve heard some of DB’s earlier stuff, already had two of their albums before this one, and i enjoy them both very much, and i had been arguing with myself to get this one. Words can’t express how rewarding and fulfilling it was for me to finally buy this CD. The Norwegian black metal act (with additional members from Cradle of Filth and Old Man’s Child) have finally put together a perfectly orchestrated black metal masterpiece. Don’t get me wrong, their other stuff is great too, but they all lack the immersion and engrossing brilliance of this one. My favorite tracks are “Blessings upon the Throne of Tyranny,” “Kings of the Carnival Creation,” and “Puritania.” All the other songs are awesome, but those three just really stood out to me. Slip into the black void of “Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia,” and be amazed by the raging riffs of Erkekjetter Silenoz and Galder, the ear-tearing vocals and mind-soothing synthesizing by black-metal master Shagrath, the clever and intriguing sampling of Mustis, the earth-shattering beats of Nicholas, and the heavenly-manifested clean vocals and chunky bass of Vortex. Every band member delivers a memorable performance, and each of them deserve equal credit in the creation of this masterpiece. Just buy it, you will not regret it, i promise.
