Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Eerie shadows are lurking in the dark corners of spring 2018; the spirit that denies, a force able to distort our conception of space and time. Over seven years, deathlike silence has filled the halls of the world's biggest black metal forge, Dimmu Borgir, whilst powers have been gathering to resurrect the band right in time for their 25th anniversary. Now they finally mark their return with a vicious work of art that can be defined as timeless in the truest sense of the word: Eonian.
From a musical point of view, the band explores their boundaries in every direction with this new record, with the black metal parts even rougher and darker than before, and the epic, orchestral moments pushed to their ultimate limits. This time Dimmu Borgir were aiming for a more organic sound for their devilish offerings, and reached out to Jens Bogren, who engineered the 10 new tracks inside his Fascination Street studios. The lyrical theme of the Norwegians' tenth studio work follows a philosophical concept, dealing with the illusion of time. The cover artwork was designed in fascinating detail by Zbigniew M. Bielak.
Both classic black metal invasions such as "Lightbringer," but also highly symphonic charged anthems like "Interdimensional Summit" gather on Eonian, with one of the band's personal favorites being the experimental, folkloristic "Council of Wolves And Snakes."
