DIMMU BORGIR To Release Tenth Studio Album ‘Eonian’ In May
January 26th, 2018

Oslo, Norway-based symphonic black metal group Dimmu Borgir issue tenth full-length studio album Eonian on May 4th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast Records.

The outing was produced by the band themselves, and engineered by Jens Bogren. Eonian lyrically follows a philosophical concept, dealing with the illusion of time.

Guitarist Silenoz comments: “Time, when not approaching it from the construct we’re used to can’t be defined and thus it is illusory. There’s only an ‘eternal now,’ which the album title is already hinting at. When we travel between the worlds seen and unseen, the perception of time ceases to exist, it has no function. Our energy is our torch and our compass when we make rifts and pierce through the veil — when we go beyond.”

Vocalist Shagrath adds: “Eonian represents the illusion of time, everything that is and always has been. For us, it also marks the 25th anniversary of Dimmu Borgir and the album itself is a tribute to our own history and the Norwegian black metal history.”

Schola Cantorum, a chamber choir in Norway, laid down guest vocals, Gaute Storaas having helped with choral arrangements.

Cover artwork duties fell to Zbigniew M. Bielak.

Inaugural single ‘Interdimensional Summit’ will be released in seven-inch vinyl EP format on February 23rd.

Dimmu Borgir’s line-up is as follows;

Shagrath (vocals)
Silenoz (guitars)
Galder (guitars)
Daray (session and live drums)
Gerlioz (session and live keyboards)

Ninth studio record Abrahadabra was released in September 2010 via Nuclear Blast.
