‘Eonian’ has been a long time coming for Dimmu Borgir fans. Eight years since the Norwegian veterans released ‘Abrahadabra’, with the band being largely absent from the scene for the majority of that time, with the exception of a handful of live shows and the release of their stunning live album/DVD ‘Forces of the Northern Night’ in April 2017. The metal scene is a very different place than it was when Dimmu Borgir last released a studio album, and you can’t help but wonder whether the band’s sound remains relevant or not. Do not worry! ‘Eonian’ (Read Our Review Here) is dark, heavy and abrasive in all the right places, but also hauntingly beautiful in a way that a black metal record has no real right to be.
It was clear what Dimmu Borgir were trying to achieve with 2010’s ‘Abrahadabra’, though there was something missing. ‘Eonian’ hits the mark, and immediately establishes itself as the standard all future symphonic black metal will be measured against.
Today, we are proud to release the exclusive footage of Dimmu masterminds Shagrath and Silenoz discussing the touring plans after the album release.
