DIMMU BORGIR: New Video Interview With SILENOZ, GALDER

Rock Rebel Magazine conducted an interview with with guitarists Silenoz (real name: Sven Atle Kopperud) and Galder (real name: Tom Rune Andersen) of Norwegian symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR on August 26 in Milan, Italy. You can now watch the chat below.

The first show of DIMMU BORGIR's European tour as the support act for KORN took place last Sunday night (September 19) at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam, Holland.

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" will be released in Germany on September 24, in the rest of Europe on September 27, and 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.
