It’s been quite a wait for a new Dimmu Borgir album – eight years if you’re counting. In May, we’ll finally get our chance to hear a full album, when Eonian is released on Nuclear Blast on May 4th. “Interdimensional Summit” with all it’s orchestral and choral flourishes has a chorus that almost sounded like a Sister of Mercy song. Sure, it’s plenty heavy, but the band just released another track from the album via video. “Council of Wolves and Snakes” is dark, but also just as symphonic as everything they’ve done. The video itself focuses on the band playing in the darkness, illuminated by what appears to be moonlight.
Eonian will be out on May 4th on Nuclear Blast, and it can be preordered here.
