A kickass black metal band from Norway. They have tons of cd's out (my personal favorite is puritanical euphoric misanthropia). They have a lead singer to die for who's name is shagrath and They were on ozzfest 2004, currently they're taking a 2 year break (yes I know, so sad. :(... but then they'll be back cause the battle rages on and on.
They also did the theme song for that show on mtv. Battle for ozzfest.

Food fight for metal!

dark fortress. Also a great black metal band. Most people think Cradle of Filth is great black metal. While good, COF is nowhere near as good as Dimmu Borgir. or any other excessively "neato" bands, such as Morbid Angel, Opeth, Children of Bodom, Dying Fetus, etc.
FINALLY! Dimmu Borgir is at ozzfest. and on MAIN STAGE too! w00t

The most pretentious and bombastic of Black Metal bands, and, for that reason, the most enjoyable.
Take three impressive-sounding words that have nothing to do with each other and put them together. Then you have the title of the next Dimmu Borgir album!

Norwegian symphonic black metal band. While middle-aged people generalize their lyrics as dark and angsty, unlike The Beatles, they have the ability to cover more than one topic in a single album, including poetically challenging extremist conservative religious fanatics, the definition of morality, telling a narrative of Satan's assistant, and several more if you understand Norwegian.

Occasionally their music videos or lyrics contain unjustifiably objectionable material, but I interpret that this is their message to their fans not to become mindless followers of their band.
If you had to mass-generalize Dimmu Borgir, you'd have to call them a cross between heavy metal and classical.
