DIMMU BORGIR Guitarist Interviewed In Brussels (Video)

Metalchroniques.fr conducted an interview with guitarist Silenoz (real name: Sven Atle Kopperud) of Norwegian symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR when the band played at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Belgium on October 1, 2010. You can now watch the chat below.

DIMMU BORGIR's setlist for the Brussels show was as follows:

01. Xibir
02. Spellbound
03. Dimmu Borgir
04. Gateways
05. Chess With The Abyss
06. The Serpentine Offering
07. Puritania
08. Progenies of The Great Apocalypse
09. Mourning Palace
10. Vanity or Perfection (outro)

DIMMU BORGIR's current touring lineup reportedly includes Geir Bratland (APOPTYGMA BERZERK, THE KOVENANT) on keyboards and Terje Andersen (a.k.a. Cyrus; SUSPERIA) on bass, although this has not yet been officially confirmed by the band.

Swedish multi-instrumentalist Snowy Shaw (real name: Tommie Helgesson; THERION, DREAM EVIL, KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, MEMENTO MORI, NOTRE DAME) announced his departure from DIMMU BORGIR's touring lineup on August 25 — just one day after confirming that he was tapped by the band to replace bassist/vocalist ICS Vortex during the recording sessions for the group's new album, "Abrahadabra", and the subsequent world tour. Shaw has since rejoined Swedish progressive/experimental metallers THERION.

"Abrahadabra" was released in Germany on September 24, in the rest of Europe on September 27, and it will be made available in North America on October 12 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The word "abrahadabra" (which roughly translates into "I will create as I speak") first publicly appeared in Chapter III of "Liber AL vel Legis" (commonly referred to as "The Book of the Law") written by Aleister Crowley in Cairo, Egypt in 1904.

A song-by-song review of "Abrahadabra" can be found on the Eternal Terror web site.
