I grew up with Dimmu Borgir and watched them evolve into what they are now. Puritanical is a great album along but found death cult to be lacking as a whole. even through all the years i still find my self always returning to listen to this album out of any in their catalog. The production is not super but the songwriting and structures are phenomenal. this is the real dimmu borgir, and it saddens me that they are straying from the creativity found on spiritual black dimensions. highly recommend to anyone who likes metal even if you are turned off from black metal.
