Question for Black Metal fans
Lately, I have been getting into some Black Metal bands like Dimmu Borgir and Old Man's Child. Some people say they are among the best Black Metal bands out there (though Dimmu Borgir has been sucking of late), whereas others completely bash them and label them as the ****tiest bands ever, next to Cradle of Filth (Yeah, CoF are awful, even I don't like them).
So clear it up for me. Any Dimmu Borgir fans here? Are they good or bad? And please don't say they suck because they sing about Satan. I am no Satanist, but I can enjoy the music without bothering about lyrics.

I like Dimmu Borgir. I don't have a clue what genre they fall into, and I don't particularly care. I just like the music, in part because the singer sounds like a dying frog. I like the big symphonic sound in some of their songs. They aren't amazing musicians or anything, but they've got a powerful sound.
How'd I end up here to begin with? I don't know.
Why do I start what I can't finish?
Oh please, don't barrage me with questions to all those ugly answers.
My ego's like my stomach- it keeps shitting what I feed it.
But maybe I don't want to finish anything anymore..
maybe I can wait in bed 'til she comes home. and whispers....

listen to the unholiest of unholy.. Burzum
We went back there and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried. I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out. I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it. I never want to forget. And then I realized... like I was shot... like I was shot with a diamond... a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought: My God... the genius of that.

I don't care for stereotypes/kult value etc. I haven't heard much Dimmu Borgir but Mourning Palace is a great song.
And I haven't heard much CoF, but from what I've heard Midian actually seems like a decent album - I've heard the rest suck.
I don't listen to much black metal (I prefer folk/viking), but give these guys a listen:
Tvangeste (similar sound to CoF, but much better)
Arcturus (avant-garde black)
Immortal (At the Heart of Winter is pretty accessible for black metal)
Arcane Necrosis (well I like it)
Emperor (Ihsahn is great)
Burzum (Lost Wisdom [synth version] is one of the most evil songs I've ever heard) - I like Hvis Lyset Tar Oss)
Then there's black metal which is more viking/folk oriented:
Windir (pure awesome)
Vintersorg (in here for awesomeness)
