DIMMU BORGIR - Discuss Songwriting Process In First Album Trailer!

On May 4th, symphonic black metal masters, DIMMU BORGIR, will deliver their new full-length album in almost 8 years. Today, singer Shagrath and guitarist Silenoz discuss the writing process of their upcoming full-length release Eonian. "Combining orchestral elements with thrash metal riffs or black metal riffs can be quite challenging," Shagrath states. "But that's how we like to make music, to mix unexpected elements - it's almost like mixing water with oil: Everyone knows that this doesn't really work, but we MAKE it work!" Watch the first album trailer here: Last week, the Norwegians have unveiled their second single, the experimental and folkloristic "Council Of Wolves And Snakes", which shows a completely different side of DIMMU BORGIR.

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.
