Dimmu Borgir Explains New Album Title

Dimmu Borgir recently announced the band's new album will be titled "Abrahadabra," and the full cover artwork is now available for viewing here. The band issued the following statement about the meaning behind the title:

"The word 'abrahadabra' (which roughly translates into 'I will create as I speak') first publicly appeared in Chapter III of Liber AL vel Legis (commonly referred to as The Book of the Law) written by Aleister Crowley in Cairo, Egypt in 1904."

Dimmu Borgir's vocalist Shagrath also shared the following comments about the new album:

"After eleven months of total focus, dedication and professional team work, Darkness has been reborn. Some people have expressed their concern about the future of the band since the departure of some members of the clan. Let me assure you that things happen for a reason. The black flame burns brighter than ever before. With the mixture of our different musical preferences and the personalities involved, I will dare to say we have created a beast, the most detailed work to date out of our 17 years of existence. I know it’s too much of a cliché to brag when you have a done a new album, but to put it short and simple, it’s a fist in the face to all the doubters out there. Forward – Onward - March... Enter the supreme unknown.”

For the second time in the band’s career (since 1996’s Stormblåst), a one-word album title breaks the tradition of a three-word album title for a new studio release dating back to Dimmu Borgir’s 1994’s debut, "For All Tid." More...

Joachim Luetke Discusses New Dimmu Borgir Album

The third of four portions of the new artwork for the as-yet-untitled Dimmu Borgir album has been uploaded to the band’s MySpace page.

When asked if there’s a connection between the image on the new album and the character from "Death Cult Armageddon," German artist Joachim Luetke responds: "The [older] character’s called The Wanderer. Now, in retrospective, I feel that he’s always been the prophet, the herald of an age to come. Now he’s roaming the world after mankind’s demise. He’s the last of his kind. Neither human nor god – the perfect link to the age of the elder gods.”

Luetke’s artwork and layout art also appeared in the earlier album's "In Sorte Diaboli" and "Death Cult Armageddon." Dimmu Borgir's ninth studio album will be released in Germany on September 24th, in the rest of Europe on September 27th, and in North America on October 12th.

Joachim Luetke Comments On Dimmu Borgir Art

The second of four portions of the new artwork for the as-yet-untitled Dimmu Borgir album has been uploaded to the band’s MySpace page. When asked if fans should look for something hidden in the artwork that may not be obvious at first glance, German artist Joachim Luetke responds:

“It’s not like looking at a picture puzzle, but if you listen to the music while looking at the imagery, an additional dimension will unfold before your eyes, that’s for sure. Learning about the real meaning of the album title is also a useful key to it.”

In early June, Dimmu Borgir announced a collaboration with Norwegian composer Gaute Storaas in addition to the 51 members of KORK (the Norwegian Radio Orchestra) and the 38-member Schola Cantorum Choir for their new release.
