Can you believe it's been eight years since there's been a new Dimmu Borgir studio album? I had just started college when Abrahadabra came out. Well, the good news is that the long wait is over (well, except the wait for the confirmed release date) as the band's long-awaited tenth studio album is ready to see the light of day and the details have been revealed.
The album will be titled Eonian and will be released on May 4th. This year marks the band's 25th anniversary, so what better way to celebrate than by releasing a new album. The album was produced by the band and engineered by none other than production great Jens Bogren.
Silenoz explains: "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."
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.”
The first single "Interdimensional Summit" will be released on February 23rd as a 7" vinyl EP. Pre-orders for the album will begin on the same day as the single release day. However, pre-orders for the single are available here.
