Dimmu Borgir to Release ‘Forces of the Northern Night’ DVD in April

It has been nearly seven years since we’ve had a new studio album from Norwegian symphonic black metal veterans Dimmu Borgir. That wait continues, but in the meantime the band will be unleashing the DVD Forces of the Northern Night on April 14 via Nuclear Blast.

It includes two Dimmu Borgir live shows. One is a 2011 concert recorded in Oslo, Norway onstage with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and Choir. The other concert is their 2012 performance at the Wacken Open Air festival where they had nearly 100 musicians on stage. A bonus documentary feature will also be included.

Frontman Shagrath says, “For us, this is the pinnacle of our career so far. As a band, we’ve always used a lot of symphonic elements in our music. But we haven’t been able to use a real orchestra live. We’ve had to use samples, synthesizers and so on, so this was a huge, awesome experience for us!”

2010’s Abrahadabra was their last studio album, and there have been rumblings that a new album would be ready this year. The last statement of the Forces of the Northern Night┬ápost on the band’s Facebook page seems to address that, albeit in a cryptic manner: “And beware…this is not the only gem that the year 2017 holds for Dimmu Borgir.” We’ll keep you posted.
