Why they might be annoying
Their music is Satanic.
Shagrath screeches and screams lyrics.
They had many line-up changes early in their career, and Shagrath is the only original member left.
Former keyboardist Stian was fired from the band for his inadequate live performances.
The album cover of 'Death Cult Armageddon' is a pentagram.
One may find it ironic that both Dimmu Borgir and Cradle of Filth released albums recorded with orchestras in the same year.
Nick was kicked out of the band (2004).
Original keyboardist Stian Aarsted stole the theme from an obscure video game and used it as an instrumental track on the original recording of 'Stormblast', renaming it 'Sorgens Kammer.' The song's rightful owner contacted the band, and on the re-recording of 'Stormblast' the song was replaced.
Why they might not be annoying
They recorded 'Death Cult Armageddon' with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
Drummer Nick Barker was once the drummer for Cradle of Filth.
Their style of black metal is symphonic and, overall, beautiful.
They are influenced by many bands, including Slayer, Morbid Angel, Darkthrone, and even U2 and Chris Isaak.
