What baffles me is how hurt DsO fans seem to get when other people fail to recognize their "genius". Artsy, not black metal enough, hipster magnetic or whatever is irrelevant, they don't have a single memorable riff in their entire discography which is the reason I don't like them.

DSO still plays black metal of course, didn't really criticize that part actually, though I also think that with their newer materials they just went way overboard with all this artistic stuff, or whatever the hell you want to call this big change compared to their more straightforward materials. Of course still worship their early releases, simply because those are just up my alley.
Oh, and I do like it when bands experiment with their music, but DSO is way overdoing it if you ask me.
But now I have to go check out some blogs to be able to continue bashing newer DSO later on as well.

SMRC by far, although I like the others too. All of this DSO criticism is nothing but anus pain. Their material is a modern time classic.

I forgot which song that was... but the riff sticked.

Voted SMRC, though every single release past and including that album is an absolute masterpiece. Honestly, I really feel sorry for people who don't "get" that band. Definitely some of the most wicked, experimental and weird stuff ever released. I understand why many people have issues with Fas, but holy shit this album is completely insane. Probably the most insane album EVER recorded. But it's so weird and fucked up, really have to be in a strange mood and 100% dedicated to listening it, whereas SMRC and Paracletus might be a little bit more easy to listen to, while still being absolutely masterful. Again, too bad for people who prefer Darkthrone worship clones... Simple minds like simple music Cool

FAS was like a knot that would not unravel. It still is that. Nowhere near accessible, but I wouldn't say impossible to get into. Paracletus was largely the same, except deciphered in a way that retains the complexity and is still listenable with just a bit of practice. I think open mindedness towards other forms of music helps a great deal here because DsO's new style does break some of the more critical conventions of (black) metal.

Yes an album like Paracletus may be a chaotic whirlwind at first, but over time, patterns emerge. Compared to FAS, it's the easier puzzle of the two. I find myself going back to it regularly and remembering one or two tiny details more about what is to come each time. It just sort of unfurls like that.

For me Mass Grave Aesthetics is the best they've done in later era, but from the full lengths, SMRC works best as an whole album.

Indeed. I sometimes think that all these baseless trendy accusations of "artistic hipster black metal" and Dillinger Escape Plan comparisons are the result of some kind of insecurity. Maybe some of these people are afraid of being retarded, so they make up this crap in order to justify their inability to comprehend the music.
