Let me start this out by saying that I have owned the original “Stormblast” for many years now and am incredibly familiar with it. Not only am I familiar with it, but it is my favorite Dimmu Borgir recording. I just love the raw production and the haunting synths. With all of that said, I didn’t much expect this re-recording to surpass the original, and it didn’t, but that doesn’t mean that this isn’t a great package for any Dimmu Borgir fan. Here you get an updated version of the classic album. It’s really neat to listen to the updated version considering the fact that the production is much better and you’ll pick up on melodies that you had no idea were there. Everybody is in top-knotch form. Shagrath screeches from the heart, and Hellhammer is behind the drum kit, so you know there can be no wrong with the drumming. Also included with this package is updated artwork, as well as many old photos of the band. These photos look as if they were taken a long time ago when they were still wielding swords. You also get a DVD of a live concert. There are only a handful of songs and most of them are quite recent, but it is a nice little bonus. All in all, this is a very worthy purchase if you are either a fan of the band or haven’t heard the original “Stormblast”.
