Dimmu Borgir Set May Release Date For New Album “Eonian”


Dimmu Borgir‘s long-awaited new album has been christened “Eonian“. Their tenth full-length album, it will arrive on May 04th via Nuclear Blast. The band worked on the outing with producer Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, Otep) and hired Zbigniew M. Bielak for the cover art, which you can see below. The conceptual effort deals with the illusion of time, as guitarist Silenoz explains:

“Time, when not approaching it from the construct we’re used to can’t be defined and thus it is illusory. 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.”

Frontman Shagrath 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.”

As previously reported, a new EP for the new album track “Interdimensional Summit” will arrive ahead of the album on February 23rd.
