Ahead of the release of Dimmu Borgir’s long-anticipated new album Eonian, we’re pleased to host an official video interview with Shagrath and Silenoz about some of the album’s orchestral elements, which you can watch below. 

As one of the most successful extreme metal forces on the planet, Dimmu Borgir have dominated the symphonic black metal genre for 25 years. The songwriting core of Dimmu Borgir consists of vocalist Shagrath, as well as the string wizards Silenoz and Galder, but other familiar faces also emerge from the darkness: Drummer Daray and keyboarder Gerlioz are still part of the team, and Gaute Storaas helped with the choral arrangements for the majestic voices of the Schola Cantrum Choir. As the title Eonian indicates, the band’s 10th full-length release deals with the illusion of time and marks a tribute to both the band’s own past as well as the Norwegian black metal history.

You can buy the album at and you can buy it at this location ahead of its release on 4th May.

Vocalist Shagrath and guitarist Silenoz discuss working with Polish artist and architect Zbigniew M. Bielak on the highly detailed cover artwork for Eonian and what the album title represents to them. Watch the trailer, filmed at Blackcraft Cult Clothing, below:

Well hello there!
