Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Godsmack albums, with the help of your votes. This Dimmu Borgir discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Dimmu Borgir albums can be found at the top of the list. Formed in Oslo, Norway in 1993, Dimmu Borgir defined the Norwegian black metal scene with their debut album For all tid (2009). They've since broadened their heavy sound with their first concept album, In Sorte Diaboli (2007). 

To make it easy for you, we haven't included Dimmu Borgir singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Dimmu Borgir album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Dimmu Borgir album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

Examples of albums on this list include Stormblåst (1996), Enthrone Darkness Triumphant (1997), and the more recent Eonian (2018). This list of popular Dimmu Borgir CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
