On April 28th, Dimmu Borgir will unleash upon mankind their highly-anticipated double-DVD/BluRay “Forces Of The Northern Night”.
On this brand new soundtrack of the apocalypse, you can witness two different live shows: The legendary concert in Oslo, showing DIMMU BORGIR on stage with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and a bombastic choir, as well as the entire performance at Wacken Open Air with almost 100 musicians in action. These monumental live rituals mark the beginning of the band’s epic return planned for 2017.
Watch the second trailer for “Forces Of The Northern Night” and witness the last moments before entering the stage in Oslo:
In an interview to Scuzz TV, Dimmu Borgir guitarist Sven Atle Kopperud (a.k.a. Silenoz) comments the experience of performing with an orchestra:
“It was, of course, really special, especially since it was in Oslo, and a lot of people traveled in for the show from all over the world. And everything went great on stage for once. When you have a hundred people on stage, the percentage of something going wrong is definitely there, but it was really, really good.”
You think your band is professional, then you play with an orchestra, and then you know, ‘Oh, we’re not so professional after all.”
DIMMU BORGIR last year extended its partnership with Nuclear Blast and the band’s tenth album is tentatively due by the end of 2017.
