This time DIMMU BORGIR were aiming for a more organic sound for their devilish offerings, and reached out to Jens Bogren, who engineered the 10 new tracks inside his Fascination Street studios. The cover artwork was designed in fascinating detail by Zbigniew M. Bielak. Eonian represents the illusion of time, everything that is and always has been. For us, it also marks the 25th anniversary of DIMMU BORGIR and the album itself is a tribute to our own history and the Norwegian black metal history, adds Shagrath
Producer – Dimmu Borgir. Vocals, Keyboards, Orchestra, Effects, Bass Guitar, Music By, Arranged By, Choir – Shagrath. CD housed in digipak including 28 page booklet. Eonian (Box, Ltd + CD, Album, Dig + CD, Bon + 2xLP, Album,) Nuclear Blast.
Dimmu Borgir is another one of those bands that Nuclear Blast promoted in the states, during the early two thousands. And they subsequently enjoyed some commercial success for a while. Their two thousand seven release, In Sorte Diaboli, rocked out pretty good. Eonian has some of the best keyboard music in their catalog. The intergalactic performances sound awesome and the haunting melodies recur in a few tracks across the album. The lyrics deal with esoteric conceptions of the existence after death. Shagrath performed the grim vocals as good as he has done in the past.
On their first studio album in nearly a decade, symphonic metal maestros Dimmu Borgir resume their ongoing collaboration with composer Gaute Storaas, who might as well be a member of the band by now. His orchestral scores and cinematic choir arrangements dominate Eonian, giving songs like The Unveiling, Interdimensional Summit, and Alpha Aeon Omega an epic Game of Thrones-intro-music feel. Meanwhile, Dimmu’s black-metal roots are alive and well in the serpentine riffs and dizzying drum work of Council of Wolves and Snakes and Lightbringer.
Eonian (2018) by Dimmu Borgir. Labels: Nuclear Blast. Genres: Symphonic Black Metal, Melodic Black Metal Members: Shagrath, Galder, Silenoz.
Dimmu Borgir have spent two decades winding up black metal elitists. The most commercially successful Norwegian black metal band of the lot, Dimmu Borgir have always aimed higher, thought bigger and sounded more overwhelmingly epic than any of their contemporaries. Similarly, the songs on Eonian speak volumes about the creative harmony the Norwegians have jointly nurtured, while the album’s title (which means, in essence, eternal or forever) feels like a subconscious nod to what both Shagrath and Silenoz regard as a neverending quest for artistic perfection. When you start a band, you’re not certain about the direction you want to take it, but as time goes on you learn where you want to go and you become better at what you’re doing, says Silenoz.
Well, with "Eonian" Dimmu Borgir surely make a step in the right direction, although they chose to follow the musical style adopted with the previous release
