Norway`s finest, DIMMU BORGIR, strike back with their
eighth opus "In Sorte Diaboli", and it is their most
elaborate and thrilling effort so far! Again produced by Swedish mastermind Fredrik Nordstr m, the nine new
DIMMU BORGIR tracks are a true lesson in fierce yet melodic Northern blackness...
In 1994, the band recorded their now-classic debut full-length, "For All Tid", followed two years later by one of the
most important albums in Black Metal history, "Stormbl st", Album number two instantly turned DIMMU BORGIR
into the hottest Black Metal Underground act with its mature songwriting, tempo variances, strong classical influences
and overall unique sound.
The "Devil's Path" MCD was next, before the recording sessions for a true and immortal melodic Black Metal
masterpiece commenced. "Enthrone Darkness Triumphant" was produced by Peter Tagtgren (Hypocrisy) and
released in 1997, The band`s Nuclear Blast debut marked their big international breakthrough achieving chart entries
all over the world and playing the huge European music festivals such as Dynamo Open Air and Wacken Open Air.
Shortly following their world tour for "Enthrone Darkness Triumphant", DIMMU BORGIR recorded the "Godless
Savage Garden" MCD to hold fans over while waiting for the next full-length, "Spiritual Black Dimensions", This
one was unleashed in March 1999, taking record stores by storm and proving yet again that DIMMU BORGIR are the
kings of the dark throne.
With a new-formed line-up, consisting of Shagrath (vocals), Silenoz (guitar), Vortex (bass & vocals), Galder (guitar),
Mustis (keyboard) and Nick Barker (drums), Dimmu Borgir entered Sweden's Fredman Studio in Fall 2000 to
record their highly anticipated album "Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia", Once again the band created a
masterpiece in aggressive music with outstanding atmosphere and audibly evil songs. 2003`s "Death Cult
Armageddon" even outdid that high level, This opus set a new standard for Black Metal with its complexity,
brutality and catchy feel, The majestic orchestral parts on the record remain unchallenged in Black Metal history to
this very day.
In 2005, the band decided to fully re-record the classic "Stormbl st", since this fan favourite lacked appropriate
sound and arrangements in the eyes of the DIMMU BORGIR guys, Living legend Hellhammer (MAYHEM) joined
them on drums for this occasion - and he is also part of "In Sorte Diaboli".
Combining all DIMMU BORGIR trademarks such as brutal highspeed parts, catchy hooks, ethereal melodies and
complex song arrangements, "In Sorte Diaboli" certainly was worth the wait, Recorded in the famous Fredman
Studios, this album will certainly see the band grow larger than life and definitely larger than Black Metal itself!
Watch out for DIMMU BORGIR on U.S, tour in April, and also for selected summer festval shows!!!! The Dark Ages
