It is the band's first concept album. A site on the Nuclear Blast website was created for In Sorte Diaboli , in which a new promotional photo can be seen and an audio sample can be heard. In Sorte Diaboli is the band's first concept album , with a story located in medieval Europe. It is about a priest who begins to doubt his faith, and then ends up taking the place of the Antichrist. The conclusion of the story in the booklet implies that the story of In Sorte Diaboli is not yet finished.
This remains to be seen, as their next album, Abrahadabra , is heavily influenced by Aleister Crowley 's Thelema text The Book of the Law. In Sorte Diaboli received generally positive critical reception. Allmusic gave the album 3 stars  and praised the music, saying "[T]here's really great stuff here in the music, the production, in the sound effects". However they criticised the concept and lyrics of the album, writing "Too bad it all melts down when it comes to the concept, which is ho hum at best".
In their native Norway, the album peaked at number 1, which marks the first time in history of a black metal band reaching the number 1 spot. All songs written by Shagrath , Silenoz and Galder.
