Dimmu Borgir is back with another cover song, this time tackling Deep Purple's "Perfect Strangers". The cover is featured on Dimmu Borgir's upcoming cover album Inspiratio Profanus, due out December 8 via Nuclear Blast.
"The idea of doing 'Perfect Strangers' came about quite a while before we actually got around to recording it," said Dimmu Borgir guitarist Silenoz. "It's a known song by a very well known band that has influenced many to pick up an instrument. I mean, is there anyone who doesn't like Deep Purple?!
"We incorporated our little twist to it while at the same time wanted to stay close to the original. But perhaps it is the more obvious aspects that come to mind when hearing it; the integration between the main musical elements that we also made use of since the beginning like keyboards and guitars."
Silenoz also commented on Inspiratio Profanus, saying: "We're pleased to announce the Inspiratio Profanus release! We thought it was about time to finally compile the cover songs we've done over the years and give these renditions an updated mastering, all in one package, highlighting some of our many influences!"
