It is with great anticipation we look forward to start, for once, a World Tour on North American soil! We're excited to have Unearth, Devildriver and Kataklysm on this diabolic ride and can't wait to meet all our loyal fans and friends old and new once again. Come join us in The Invaluable Darkness!"

Teaming up once again with producer Fredrik Nordström (Opeth, Arch Enemy, At The Gates) at the new Studio Fredman in Hyssna, Sweden, In Sorte Diaboli is DIMMU BORGIR's first concept album and a treatise on modern day political and social abuses of organized religion. An epic tale set in medieval Europe, this first-person account of an acolyte is told through his own journal entries, depicting his personal struggle with the teachings of the church. Experiencing a life-altering epiphany, he abandons the church completely, and his spiritual victory is won through his rejection of the concept of god.

In Sorte Diaboli will be available in North America in two different formats: a jewel-case CD and a limited edition digipak ( + bonus track, + bonus DVD with the Patric Ullaeus-directed video for "The Serpentine Offering," + "The Making Of In Sorte Diaboli" in-studio/behind the scenes footage). The complete track listing is as follows:

01. The Serpentine Offering
02. The Chosen Legacy
03. The Conspiracy Unfolds
04. The Sacrilegious Scorn
05. The Fallen Rises
06. Heretic Hammer (EXCLUSIVE North American Bonus Track)
07. The Sinister Awakening
08. The Fundamental Alienation
09. The Invaluable Darkness
10. The Foreshadowing Furnace

An instrumental version of "Heretic Hammer" will be available on iTunes.com as an additional North American exclusive.

The band's recording and current touring line-up includes Shagrath on vocals, Silenoz on guitar, Galder on guitar, I.C.S. Vortex on bass & clean vocals, Mustis on keyboards, and Hellhammer behind the drum kit.

Artwork for In Sorte Diaboli can be viewed tonight at 12 midnight PACIFIC / 3 a.m. EASTERN (February 15th) / 9 a.m. Central European Time (February 15th) on the official DIMMU BORGIR News Page
