Norwegian symphonic black metal trio Dimmu Borgir haven't said much lately but the group is working on material for the follow-up to 2010's Abrahadabra. Not many details are known at this point, but at least you know that the new album is in the works.

Recently, Shagrath posted this message on Facebook: "By the desire to achieve. Stoked about our new material, it's shaping up nicely. Creativity is the power to connect the seemingly unconnected."

This should be... interesting...

Lets hope it's better than their last two albums.

Let's hope for less symphonic and more black metal. Though I doubt it.

but i doubt that it will be any good

I'd rather see an Old Mans Child new release.

Finally... Been waiting for any mention of a new album. Good to know its on its way.

That instagram effect on the picture... Pretty much sums up how I feel about the band.

Hopefully it's gonna be on par with 2 previous albums. More symphonic and melodic - the better.

Any bets on how long before this shows up in the discount bin?

I don't see why some people shouldn't like In Sorte Diaboli or Abrahadabra, yet I wish their next album isn't so symphonic as Abrahadabra mostly because it means that such album cannot be played live without a true orchestra Too much orchestra kills the real sound imho. Wait'n see then.

Symphonic black metal *can* be done. Just listen to Carach Angren. I'm not sure Dimmu have quite nailed it yet though. I agree with s_t_s. Too much orchestra means that live shows end up with loads of pre-recorded stuff that the band didn't even create themselves.

Abrahadabra is by far the worst recording this band has ever done! It is simply horrible! I was so depressed to hear that piece of shit album. atleast In Sorte had it's high points. Abrahadabra starts off blah and ends blah blah blah. A steady decline for dog crap to horse shit. I wish Galder would just release a new OMC album, that's what I'm waiting for. I've pretty much given up on dimmu. Even if dimmu does manage to put together something worth while musicly, Shagraths vox have gone to complete shit, so he will more then likely end up ruining anything solid that they do. It's been a very sad last 3 years. IT really sux to see 1 of your top 3 bands go to crap this quickly, I've been listening to them since 1997.

Let´s hope for less symphony and to hear more from the actual band... The orchestra was a bit too dominating for my taste on their previous album.

Yeah, symphonies are ruining some metal bands. They rely on the symphony too much and forget to even record their own music! Haha!
