...In New Album Trailer!
"Forget everything you might have known about DIMMU BORGIR so far, »Eonian« is by far the most bombastic, mature, diverse and modern album these Norwegian beasts have ever released. Symphonic progressive black awesomeness which will set new standards for the entire metal community." ROCK HARD (I), Emanuele Biani
"To say DIMMU BORGIR are back would be an understatement. To put it more aptly, DIMMU BORGIR has arisen with their best music in over a decade. »Eonian« is a triumph, a near-perfect fusion of symphonic grandeur and black metal brutality." OVERDRIVE (AUS), Lewis Allan
"»Eonian« hits the mark, and immediately establishes itself as the standard all future symphonic black metal will be measured against. Without a shadow of a doubt, Eonian was worth the eight-year wait." METAL WANI (INT), Fraser Wilson
Today, Norwegian symphonic black legends DIMMU BORGIR have finally released their long-awaited album Eonian, their first full-length record in 8 years. This tenth longplayer combines symphonic epicness with the spirit of the Norwegian black metal scene of the 90's. To mark the occasion, the band has launched another trailer in which Shagrath and Silenoz tell what the fans can expect from the new album.

After 25 years of existence, DIMMU BORGIR continue to push the boundaries of extreme metal, polarize, provoke but have once again proven that they are the greatest force of their genre and always dare to be one step ahead.
"When you work so closely together for over 25 years, you become like brothers and family. We love and fight hard, but our passion and dedication is also our strength," explains Silenoz.
Shagrath adds, "Our music is our emotional outlet. The album is like oil and vinegar, you have unlimited contrasts and a whirlwind of different emotions and moods."
Shagrath and Silenoz takeover SiriusXM Liquid Metal hosted by Jose Mangin.

Being one of the successful extreme metal forges on the planet, DIMMU BORGIR have been dominating the symphonic black metal genre for 25 years. The songwriting core of DIMMU BORGIR furthermore consists of charismatic 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 is dealing with the illusion of time and marks a tribute to both the band's own past as well as the Norwegian black metal history.
