Norwegian symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR took a break from the recent Blackest Of The Black tour to perform two songs at the Fuel TV studios in Los Angeles. Hosted by Pat Parnell and featuring guest appearances by Bam Margera and Brandon Novak, "The Daily Habit" episode featuring DIMMU BROGIR will air on Tuesday, November 25.
DIMMU BORGIR has been on tour in support of its recent "The Invaluable Darkness" (2DVD+CD), which debuted at no. 5 on the Nielsen SoundScan Top Music Videos chart in mid-October. This will be the band's last North American tour in support of its eighth studio album, "In Sorte Diaboli," which debuted on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart at no. 2, on The Billboard 200 at no. 43, and has sold over 66,000 copies in the U.S.
"The Daily Habit" is Fuel TV's first original daily series, telecast weeknights at 9:00 p.m. Eastern (6:00 p.m. Pacific) while re-airing later in the evening at 12:00 a.m Eastern (9:00 PM Pacific), and the following weekday at 2:30 p.m. Eastern (11:30 a.m. Pacific) and 5:30 p.m. Eastern (2:30 p.m. Pacific).
In related band news, Metal-Rules.com recently conducted an interview with guitarist Silenoz of DIMMU BORGIR. An excerpt from the chat follows below.
Metal-Rules.com: Speaking of a follow-up to In Sorte Diaboli I have to ask you; will you once again utilize Hellhammer [MAYHEM] as a session drummer?
Silenoz: "I mean, we keep all doors open but right now we have such a good chemistry, both personally and musically, with [current touring drummer] Darek [Dariusz 'Daray' Brzozowski], who played with VADER. It would sure surprise me a lot if he's not playing on the new album. He's doing such a great job and he fits really, really well into the musical wide range style of DIMMU BORGIR. I would probably say that he will be the one that will play on the next album. It would surprise me a lot if he wouldn't."
Metal-Rules.com: You've always been very fortunate to have some of metal's most talented drummers at your disposal; how would you rank Darek against the others?
Silenoz: "I would say that he is the most steady and consistent drummer I've ever played with, no matter what. He's extremely reliable, hard-working, determined and he really, really pushes himself, you know? Even if he plays a really killer show and the rest of us have nothing to complain about, he still is not happy. It's not good enough. That's the attitude we need, you know? After all, the drummer is the engine in the band and you won't get anywhere if you only have oil and gas…you need the engine to work too…so… he's awesome."
