Dimmu Borgir Announces Artist For New Album Artwork

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.
