Norway’s Dimmu Borgir have announced a short list of US performances to celebrate the brand-new album “Eonian” which will be released in May on their label of long-time record, Nuclear Blast Records. Check out this awesome advertisement and the less than a handful of dates below. I will add some editorial rumblings after that for good measure.
Though we’ve gotten some live clips from their stunning concert video release “Forces Of The Northern Night”, it’s been almost nine years since a studio album has surfaced. In the coming months the band will deliver “Eonian” and the first single “Interdimensional Summit” has a video which I am presenting below. Some thoughts on the clip alone will follow as a narrative on the single music will get its own spotlight
Artist: Dimmu Borgir Title: “Interdimensional Summit” (Single) Label: Nuclear Blast Records Release Date: 2/23/2018 Genre: Symphonic Black Metal Rating: 4.5/5
In a few short months, the world will get their full dose of the latest opus by Norway’s Symphonic Black Metal titans in Dimmu Borgir with their album “Eonian” which will come out on their longtime label Nuclear Blast Records.

One had to wonder just how the band would reintroduce themselves after so long an absence from recorded work.

You might have wondered if we were going to be getting a new album soon after watching the recent “Forces Of Northern Darkness” DVD by the mighty Dimmu Borgir, and well its time to say wonder now more as the first details on this release have been issued. Read the full press release below.
The Press Release:
Over seven years, deathlike silence has filled the halls of the world‘s biggest black metal forge, DIMMU BORGIR, whilst powers have been gathering to resurrect the band right in time for their 25th anniversary. Now they finally mark their return with a vicious work of art that can be defined as timeless in the truest sense of the word: Eonian.
The songwriting core of DIMMU BORGIR furthermore consists of charismatic vocalist Shagrath, as well as the string wizards Silenoz and Galder, but other familiar faces also emerge from the darkness: Drummer Daray and keyboarder Gerlioz are still part of the team, and Gaute Storaas helped with the choral arrangements for the majestic voices of the Schola Cantrum Choir.
The cover artwork was designed in fascinating detail by Zbigniew M. Bielak (GHOST, BEHEMOTH, MAYHEM).
The Press Release:
Before the symphonic black metal legends DIMMU BORGIR finally return to the spotlight with their highly anticipated 9th studio album in spring 2018, the Norwegians now unleash the re-releases of their early classics on vinyl.
