Undoubtedly Dimmu Borgir’s finest video and one of their best “new” songs. Not that it’s a tough pick; most of their videos are pretty fucking awful. I used to start my days with this shit ceeeeeeeeranked.
This next joint is badass because it eschews the black that usually goes hand in hand with black metal and goes with white instead. Bands do this occasionally. This song is incredibly depressing and enlightening. I used to watch this video over and over back when I was ridiculously / comically depressed, playing Elder Scrolls Oblivion from waking to sleeping, drunk much of the time. Oh, if only I could go back in time, point, and laugh!

Hey readers! If you liked this post, you should check out some of my books. I’ve got an epic series called Demonworld, which is equal parts Mad Max and Lord of the Rings (think “science fantasy”), and a much-loved gamebook series called Heavy Metal Thunder which is currently a hyperlinked Kindle book but will be a fancy phone app any day now.
