Dimmu Borgir Begins Recording Today

I read an interview with the guys from Dimmu Borgir in a guitar magazine, and they said that they usually have everything planned so well before going to the studio that “Death Cult Armageddon” only took two weeks to record. If they do their next album as fast, then hopefully the release date won’t be too far off.

You can read more about that here.

For those of you unfamiliar with Dimmu Borgir, I would describe them as symphonic black metal. Some people from the black metal scene have suggested that Dimmu Borgir is not “real” black metal, due to not pushing the Satanic part enough, and their popularity. Dimmu Borgir is according to some people the most commercially successful black metal band in the world (I’ve heard that Cradle Of Filth is the most commercially successful black metal band in North America). I guess it all depends on interpretation.

As a trivia note, the name “Dimmu Borgir” is said to be icelandic for “dark castle” or “dark fortress”. “Dimmu Borgir” is also the name of a lava formation in Iceland, and according to local legends is a gateway to hell.
