DIMMU BORGIR’s Next Album Will "Take A More Aggressive Turn"
Dimmu Borgir will wrap up their European tour with Amorphis on February 2 and then start to focus on writing a new album. According to guitarist Silenoz in an interview with Extreme Metal Festival News, Dimmu Borgir has plenty of material left over from their 2018 album Eonian. He added “hopefully it won't take as long to release a new album this time” in reference to the eight year gap between Eonian and 2010’s Abrahadabra.
"For the previous album, we could have done a double album because we had so much material to take from, and I'm sure some of the stuff that we didn't use could be used on the next album. Apart from that, each one of us has so many ideas, so when we actually get together, there is never a shortage of material. It's all about trying to arrange it within the feel or mood of the band at the moment, so hopefully it won't take as long to release a new album this time. After this tour, we are going to take a quick break and then we are going to try to churn it all into a new album, so to speak."
“Without saying too much, because we haven't really decided on anything yet, as we try not to pre-decide what the album will sound like as we try and just go with the flow, but I think the feeling within the band now is that we want to take a more aggressive turn. And now with Victor in the band, with him also being a guitarist, there will be four of us writing guitar riffs. It would surprise me if the album will be more guitar-orientated, which I don't mind."
