DIMMU BORGIR To Utilize Former VADER Drummer On Next Studio Album

Metal-Rules.com recently conducted an interview with guitarist Silenoz of Norwegian symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR. An excerpt from the chat follows below.

Metal-Rules.com: Speaking of a follow-up to "In Sorte Diaboli" I have to ask you; will you once again utilize Hellhammer [MAYHEM] as a session drummer?

Silenoz: "I mean, we keep all doors open but right now we have such a good chemistry, both personally and musically, with [current touring drummer] Darek [Dariusz 'Daray' Brzozowski], who played with VADER. It would sure surprise me a lot if he's not playing on the new album. He's doing such a great job and he fits really, really well into the musical wide range style of DIMMU. I would probably say that he will be the one that will play on the next album. It would surprise me a lot if he wouldn't."

Metal-Rules.com: You've always been very fortunate to have some of metal's most talented drummers at your disposal; how would you rank Darek against the others?

Silenoz: "I would say that he is the most steady and consistent drummer I've ever played with, no matter what. He's extremely reliable, hard-working, determined and he really, really pushes himself, you know? Even if he plays a really killer show and the rest of us have nothing to complain about, he still is not happy. It's not good enough. That's the attitude we need, you know? After all, the drummer is the engine in the band and you won't get anywhere if you only have oil and gas…you need the engine to work too…so… he's awesome."
