Being one of the successful extreme metal forges on the planet, DIMMU BORGIR have been dominating the symphonic black metal genre for 25 years.
On May 4th, the symphonic black metal giants will finally release their new studio album after eight years of silence. New record Eonian combines symphonic epicness with the spirit of the Norwegian black metal scene of the Nineties and will be the tenth album released by DIMMU BORGIR.
The songwriting core of the band 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.
As the title Eonian indicates, the band’s 10th full-length release is dealing with the illusion of time and marks a tribute to both the band’s own past as well as the Norwegian black metal history.
Check out this video of Silenoz and Shagrath giving their recommendations on how they like to pass the time, with their selection of favourite books, movies, albums and places to visit.
