Dimmu Borgir to release long awaited new album, “Eonian”!
Symphonic black metal alumni Dimmu Borgir announce new album “Eonian” , their tenth full-length coming to release on May 4th, 2018.
Statement from the Dimmu Facebook:
“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.”
Elaborting on the theme of the album, guitarist Silenoz adds:
“Time, when not approaching it from the construct we’re used to can’t be defined and thus it is illusory. There’s only an ‘eternal now’, which the album title is already hinting at. When we travel between the worlds seen and unseen, the perception of time ceases to exist, it has no function. Our energy is our torch and our compass when we make rifts and pierce through the veil – when we go beyond.”
As a taste of what’s to come, the first single “Interdimensional Summit” is being released on February 23rd as a 7″ vinyl EP, with pre-orders for the full length coming HERE on the same day.
