Dimmu Borgir finally to return with new album Eonian!!
Over seven years, deathlike silence has filled the halls of one of the world’s biggest black metal forces Dimmu Borgir.
They finally mark their return with a new album of vicious work in 2018.
Eonian will be released May 4th through Nuclear Blast Records. It will feature 10 blackened death metal tracks produced by the band itself and engineered by Jens Bogren.
The cover artwork was designed by Zbigniew M. Bielak (Ghost, Behemoth, Mayhem).
Eonian follows a philosophical concept, dealing with the illusion of time:
“Time, when not approaching it from the construct we’re used to can’t be defined and thus it is illusory”, explains axemaster Silenoz. “There’s only an ‘eternal now’, which the album title is already hinting at. When we travel between the worlds seen and unseen, the perception of time ceases to exist, it has no function. Our energy is our torch and our compass when we make rifts and pierce through the veil – when we go beyond.”
Vocalist Shagrath adds: “Eonian represents the illusion of time, everything that is and always has been. For us, it also marks the 25th anniversary of Dimmu Borgir and the album itself is a tribute to our own history and the Norwegian black metal history.”
On February 23rd, Dimmu Borgir will unveil the first single Interdimensional Summit which will finally be the first taste of the upcoming album.
