Dimmu Borgir, May 5, 2007, Burton Cummings Theatre, Winnipeg


I missed the first band, Kataklysm.

Devil Driver may have a corny name, but they were quite good.

Unearthed were all right.

Dimmu Borgir were great. Unlike many of today's black metal bands, these guys incorporate symphonic sounds into their music and it works. And they were also heavy. So many bands today try to make up for a lack of originality with speed and heaviness, but most of the ones I've heard have failed. Their last two albums are the metal albums that I have listened to the most over the last couple of years. I don't follow the metal scene closely, but Dimmu may be a cutting edge band on the rise.
