We’re still waiting, lads...
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.
