DIMMU BORGIR Guitarist Sets Record Straight Regarding Band's Current Lineup

DIMMU BORGIR guitarist Silenoz has posted the following message on the band's official forum:

"For those of you who can't still read and at the same time believe in rumors, I just want to make things clear [regarding the band's current lineup]:

Shagrath - Vocals
Silenoz - Guitars
Galder - Guitars
Vortex - Bass
Mustis - Keys
Hellhammer - Drums

"[Hellhammer] is a hired hitman and will be playing festivals for us this year and on the upcoming album, and hopefully the world touring that will follow the new album."

DIMMU BORGIR recently became the first band on the Nuclear Blast USA roster to sell more than 100,000 copies of a full-length album with their "Death Cult Armageddon" (2003) release, according to sales figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan.

As previously reported, DIMMU BORGIR's video for the track "Sorgens Kammer – Del II" has been posted online at NuclearBlast.de (Real Media). The clip was shot last fall in Sweden with director Patric Ullaeus of Sweden's Revolver Film Company.

"Sorgens Kammer – Del II" is one of the new tracks included on the updated, re-recorded version of DIMMU BORGIR's 1996 album, "Stormblåst", which was released in Europe in November via Nuclear Blast Records (the North American release followed in February). The album was completely re-recorded with producer Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN) and MAYHEM's Hellhammer on drums.

DIMMU BORGIR are currently writing material for their next studio, tentatively due in early 2007. The CD, which will feature a guest appearance by MAYHEM's Hellhammer on drums, will be "a full story/concept album," according to a posting on the group's web site.
