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.

Dimmu Borgir Releasing Double DVD

It's everything we've been waiting seven years for: a new Dimmu Borgir album is coming! Oh, no, wait... that's not it at all.

Norwegian symphonic black metal giant Dimmu Borgir finally emerges from the depths of darkness to mark 2017 with double DVD "Forces Of The Northern Night," due out April 14th.

This new DVD will contain two of the band's live rituals: a show in Oslo, presenting Dimmu Borgir on stage with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and a bombastic choir, as well as the entire performance at Wacken Open Air 2012 with almost 100 musicians on stage.

The shows guide fans through classics from the band's discography - from the majestic finisher "Mourning Palace" to the stomping manifesto "Puritania" and the haunting "Gateways." Front man Shagrath comments:

"For us, this is the pinnacle of our career so far. As a band, we've always used a lot of symphonic elements in our music. But we haven't been able to use a real orchestra. We've had to use samples, synthesisers and so on, so this was a huge, awesome experience for us!" More...

Sunday Old School: BMHM Part 3 - Dimmu Borgir

We’ve now reached the halfway mark of our month long descent into darkness that is Black Metal History Month. Though some of the subjects we've look at this month like blasphemy, suicide and murder may be extremely shocking to the uninitiated, to the black metal faithful, perhaps one of the worst things a band could do is find mainstream success. It ruined the credibility of Cradle of Filth, but how would a band from black metal’s spiritual home fare in this situation? We’re about to find out as we continue our month of madness with Dimmu Borgir.

Dimmu Borgir was founded by vocalist Shagrath, guitarist Silenoz and drummer Tjodalv, taking their name from an Icelandic volcanic formation, which translates roughly to "dark cities" in English. They soon recorded an EP entitled, "Inn i evighetens mørke del I," which sold very quickly, leading the trio to record their first full length album with new members Stian Aarstad and Brynjard Tristan, "For all Tid," which was released in 1994 through No Colours Records. The roles were reversed a little on the first album, as Silenoz performed drums and Tjodalv handled guitars, before they switched positions. More...
