DIMMU BORGIR are strongly rumored to have parted ways with Nick Barker (ex-Cradle of Filth, Lock Up). Their publicist Maria Ferrero has confirmed that drummer has left the band.
The group, who recently cancelled their Japanese/Australian tour, have yet to officially comment on the matter. Furthermore, the official website has been down for the past few weeks.
Barker joined DIMMU BORGIR in 1999 as a replacement for original drummer Tjodalv (a.k.a. Kenneth Åkesson). He has since appeared on two full-length studio albums with the band: "Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia" (2001, Nuclear Blast) and "Death Cult Armageddon" (2003, Nuclear Blast).
Norwegian Black metallers DIMMU BORGIR have reportedly cancelled all of their Australian/Japanese dates that were scheduled to take place in early February. Although no official reason was given for the cancellation, it is believed that problems with the Japanese portion of the trek led to the decision to call off both tours. This is the second time Dimmu Borgir have cancelled an Australian tour, having previously axed what would have been their first-ever trip Down Under back in 1999. DARK FUNERAL will cover up for them, co- headlining with ZYKLON.
