DIMMU BORGIR Discuss Songwriting Process In First Album Trailer!

 On May 4th, symphonic black metal masters,  DIMMU BORGIR , will deliver their new full-length album in almost 8 years. Today, singer  Shagrath  and guitarist  Silenoz  discuss the writing process of their upcoming full-length release  Eonian.    "Combining orchestral elements with thrash metal riffs or black metal riffs can be quite challenging,"  Shagrath  states.  "But that's how we like to make music, to mix unexpected elements - it's almost like mixing water with oil: Everyone knows that this doesn't really work, but we MAKE it work!"   Watch the first album trailer here:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K1GOpLWIVw   Last week, the Norwegians have unveiled their second single, the experimental and folkloristic  "Council Of Wolves And Snakes" , which shows a completely different side of  DIMMU BORGIR .

As the title   Eonian   indicates, the band's 10th full-length release is dealing with the illusion of time and marks a tribute to both the band's own past as well as the Norwegian black metal history.
