Dimmu Borgir will release a new album after 7 years, entitled as Eonian.
This tenth full-length record will see the light of spring on May the 4th, and it will contain 10 new tracks, produced by the band itself and engineered by Jens Bogren. Emerging from the dark minds of the three songwriters, 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.
Shagrath, the vocalist, added: 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.
Dimmu Borgir will unveil their first single “Interdimensional Summit”, which will be released on February 23rd, being the first song presented of the upcoming album.
