Ah yes, the mythical Dimmu Borgir album that's meant to followup 2010's Abrahadabra. Last we heard, the album is due out this summer or fall, and now according to Shagrath in an interview with Antihero, it's likely that it'll be out this fall for sure!
Shagrath also states that the album will be a mix of different eras of Dimmu Borgir, though surprisingly says that the album will include "a lot of themes and riff ideas that you can link back to '93." Y'know, before Dimmu Borgir was even putting out studio albums. He also says the album is "darker, more atmospheric, more primitive, more black metal," which is just straight up exciting.
"I can't go really into details, but what I can say about it is that we have used now three years to make a new album. It's just finished right now, actually, so the plan is that it will be out during fall. These days we do the preparation in connection with that release. If I can say something about the album, it will be that we are very proud of it, it sounds great, it's very atmospheric, and it also includes a lot of the elements which Dimmu Borgir are known for, so I think the fans will not be disappointed.
"It also includes a lot of themes and riff ideas that you can link back to '93. So, it's like a combination of different themes throughout the history of Dimmu Borgir. It also has a lot of symphonic elements and we are using a big choir on this new record, and it's also darker, more atmospheric, more primitive, more black metal. Yeah, a mixture of different things, basically."
Okay seriously, I think we need this record already.
