Hibernating beasts are unpredictable at best. Their energies are restored, perhaps even increased, and their hunger is relentless.
Such is the case of Dimmu Borgir, who are re-emerging from a seven-year sleep that boasted live performances, but was devoid of studio magic. The quiet between 2010’s Abrahadabra and this year’s Eonian is the longest the Norwegians have endured between albums, and their are returning full of fire and fury.
Eonian is slated for release on May 4 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment, and Dimmu Borgir have announced a few isolated shows around the world, including four exclusive performances in North America. Forthcoming shows are as follows:
6/14-16/2018 Montebello, QC – Rockfest
