DIMMU BOR­GIR

We’re still wait­ing, lads...

Metal Hammer (UK) - - 2018: The Year Ahead -

If you’re get­ting a touch of deja vu from last year’s preview, you’re not alone. So, fel­las, ex­actly what hap­pened with that new al­bum we were ex­pect­ing in 2017?!

Sha­grath tells us: “When im­mor­tal­is­ing an art form it’s im­por­tant to leave noth­ing up to co­in­ci­dence. But some­times, things hap­pen. Hold-ups for what­ever rea­sons, and other un­pre­dictable stuff be­yond your con­trol. It’s im­por­tant to not fall for the temp­ta­tion of try­ing to reel that big mon­ster in be­fore you’re in con­trol of it”

Promis­ing that the “al­bum is done” and will come out later this year, Sha­grath ad­mits that this may be seen by some as a come­back al­bum, but won’t re­veal whether last year’s de­ci­sion to seem­ingly drop the corpse­paint will stick.

“We wanted to do a new pho­to­shoot last year and did one with­out corpse­paint,” he of­fers. “There’s noth­ing more in it

[for now] than that.”

Ex­pect the new Dimmu Bor­gir al­bum in the first half of 2018. Maybe.

Sha­grath: tardy
