DIMMU BORGIR's latest studio album, "In Sorte Diaboli," is available for streaming in its entirety on MP3.com for seven days prior to the album's North American street date of April 24th.

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.

The band recently announced their headlining tour of the U.S. and Canada with Unearth from Massachusetts, California's Devildriver, and Canada's Kataklysm, which begins Friday, April 20th in Cleveland, Ohio.

In Sorte Diaboli will be available for streaming between April 17 and April 23, 2007.

I've heard the album already, it's pretty good. Death Cult Armageddon has it beat though. Decent, but nothing spectacular.

I think I might like this one more than deathcult...It's at least equal to DCA and nearing PEM imho.

Now Playing: Tomahawk - "When the Stars Begin to Fall"

Yes, I agree. I think this album is much more comprehensive than DCA. Just amazing. I bet right now at the end of 2007 this album wins BEST METAL ALBUM 2007! It's just a masterpiece overall. The Serpentine Offering is f***ing amazing.

I agree with the last two posts, I think this might actually be better than DCA. Sounds very polished and is a good return for them

It would be a shame if this album wasn't in the running for best of the year. Very strong keys, guitar and vocals.

Even with this band being so widely accepted that metals elitists are (have been) shunning the band in a way similar to COF(Never could get past Filth).

DB have -never- been black metal in the sense that say Unlord, Gorgoroth or Emperor were/are but so f***ing what.The music has depth, urgency and Hellhammer.

Now Playing: Porcupine Tree - "Anesthtize"

Never got the whole Dimmu Borgir attraction... they have the whole modern metal groove thing I suppose which is pretty popular, no wonder they're always mentioned beside CoF. Not really my thing I suppose.

Now Playing: Behold... The Arctopus - "Exospacial Psionic Aura"

My first thought when "The Serpentine Offering" kicked in around the 1:00 mark was : YES!!! An amazing album. You can make a case that it beats DCA. It could win for best album, but it is very black metal.
