Dimmu Borgir - The Serpentine Offering

This is a norweigian black metal band that
saw the first light in 1993.

Pretty black with a lot of satanic things in the videos.

The name comes from a volcanic formation in Iceland, Dimmuborgir.
They done 8 albums and they are:
"For all tid" came 1994
Then 1996 came "Stormblåst" after that
"Enthrone Darkness Triumphant" 1997
"Spiritual Black Dimensions" 1999
"Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia" 2001
"Death Cult Armageddon" 2003
"Stormblåst MMV" 2005
and last "In Sorte Diaboli" in 2007

They are on the move to let out a new album.
Guitarist Silenoz of DIMMU BORGIR recently spoke
to U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine about the progress of the songwriting
sessions for the band's follow-up to 2007's In Sorte Diaboli.

"The words that come to mind, if we should even try
and attempt at describing [the new material] at this point,
would be something like: grand, huge, epic and primal,
" he said. "It has this eerie and haunting feel to it.
Atmosphere and ambience!

Regarding why the wait between albums seems to be getting
longer for DIMMU BORGIR, Silenoz said,
"Because we want the next album to be a better and stronger one.
We're more critical of each process and we take the time it needs.
Quality is, at the end of the day, in the eye of the beholder,
but once we start rushing things, like trying to write
music while on tour to speed things up — forget about it.
We've tried it before and it didn't work.
We focus 110 percent on one thing at a time.
Plus, if we'd release an album every year,
where would the expectation be?
Where would the excitement be?"

This tune comes from the album "In Sorte Diaboli".


Cheers, Thetania

Kanske en av de mest episka inledningarna på en skiva - någonsin. Det är mycket "Sagan om Ringen"-känsla över början på låten, och jag använder den då och då som startlåt när jag kommer in på kontoret. "Return Of The Försäljningschef"! :)
