Black Metallists DIMMU BORGIR Drop New Single & Video For “Council Of Wolves And Snakes”!

Norwegian black metal mongers DIMMU BORGIR have dropped a brand new single and music video for the track, “Council Of Wolves And Snakes.” The track comes ahead of their upcoming new album, Eonian. The album is due out on May 4th via Nuclear Blast Records. Check out the video and album details below.

From The Press Release

With over 1.3 million Youtube-views on their first single “Interdimensional Summit,” Norwegian devils DIMMU BORGIR have proven that they are back for good after over 7 years of silence. On May 4th, the symphonic black metal masters will deliver their new full-length album Eonian and today, they unveil their second single with a stunning music video.

The experimental, folkloristic ‘Council of Wolves And Snakes’ is risking a look far beyond the horizon and proves that the band follows ‘no formula, no absolute’, as Silenoz vows, and shows that the path sometimes guides them to places they would have never expected to end up when they started their journey.

Vocalist Shagrath states: “It’s a song that sticks out from the rest of the album, it’s DIMMU BORGIR going into an experimental direction, but you can also find a lot of black metal inspiration in the middle section of the song. We are a band that has never been afraid of trying out new directions and artistically this is surely a very interesting and different track.”

Being one of the successful extreme metal forges on the planet, DIMMU BORGIR have been dominating the symphonic black metal genre for 25 years. The songwriting core of DIMMU BORGIR furthermore consists of charismatic vocalist Shagrath, as well as the string wizards Silenoz and Galder, but other familiar faces also emerge from the darkness: Drummer Daray and keyboarder Gerlioz are still part of the team, and Gaute Storaas helped with the choral arrangements for the majestic voices of the Schola Cantrum Choir. As the title Eonian indicates, the band’s 10th full-length release is dealing with the illusion of time and marks a tribute to both the band’s own past as well as the Norwegian black metal history.

I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
