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.

Dimmu Borgir Announces Artist For New Album

Dimmu Borgir has enlisted German artist Joachim Luetke to create the cover artwork for the band's upcoming album. When asked what he feels his approach does for Dimmu Borgir, Luetke responds: "My artwork visualizes their music, adds another (optical) dimension to it. I don’t know exactly how this works. Cannot tell what kind of interior mechanism gets triggered by their music, but it’s clearly an utmost powerful one. Analyzing this means destroying it. As for our repeated collaborations, well, that’s probably because we share the similar philosophy at eye level."

Luetke’s artwork and layout art also graces two other Dimmu Borgor albums: 2003’s "Death Cult Armageddon" and 2007’s "In Sorte Diaboli." In early June, the band announced their collaboration with Norwegian composer and Berklee College of Music summa cum laude alumnus 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. To date, over 101 musicians have contributed to the making of the new album. 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.

The band has now revealed a portion of the cover artwork online, which can be viewed at this location.

Insidious Disease Reveals New Album Artwork

Extreme metal legends have united as INSIDIOUS DISEASE will unleash the most violent death metal album to come along in years. The band consists of Dimmu Borgir’s main songwriter Silenoz, bassist Shane Embury (Napalm Death), guitarist Jardar (Old Mans Child), drummer Tony Laureano (Angelcorpse, Nile) and vocalist Marc Grewe (from German death metal band Morgoth) will release its debut album "Shadowcast" via Century Media Records on July 12th in Europe and July 27th in North America.

INSIDIOUS DISEASE is proud to unveil a brand new artwork trailer for Shadowcast offering a glimpse at the morbid visuals accompanying the release. Check out the video below:

Silenoz further explains the concept of Shadowcast, which has way more to offer than just typical death metal gore galore, “The basic idea behind Shadowcast lyrically is an attempt to describe the ‘misfits’ in this world: the misunderstood, mentally defect and depraved individuals that walk among us - rapists, serial killers, pedophiles, necrophiles and drug addicts, etc. It could be your neighbor, you just never know, it could be YOU!"

Dimmu Borgir Reveals New Album Details

Norwegian symphonic black metal band Dimmu Brogir has 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 the band's as-yet-untitled new album. To date, over 101 musicians have lent their talents to the making of the album.

Composer Gaute Storaas shares some insight on what it’s like to work with Dimmu Borgir: "There have been several attempts of dressing up rock bands in suits, bow ties, and symphonic splendor - to various degrees of success. Working with Dimmu Borgir is quite different. Their music is epic, thematic and symphonic already from the creation; they are clearly having an orchestral approach to composing. My role in this is sometimes just to transcribe their themes, sometimes to take their ideas, tear them apart and build them back up in ways that are true to the band's intentions. The music must also be both interesting and playable for the musicians, and hopefully, meet the quality standards of the orchestral world.”

Dimmu Borgir's ninth studio album will be released in Germany on October 8th, in the rest of Europe on October 11th, and in North America on October 12th.
