Dimmu Borgir To Release “Forces Of The Northern Night” Live DVD Set In April

Dimmu Borgir have announced that they will release their new live two-disc DVD “Forces Of The Northern Night” on April 14. The effort will feature the band’s show in Oslo, Norway, which they performed with Norwegian Radio orchestra and a choir. It also comes with their set from the 2012 Wacken Open Air festival.


The band posted the following:

Norwegian symphonic black metal giants, DIMMU BORGIR, finally emerge from the depths of darkness, to mark 2017 as the year of their monumental return.

On April 14th, they will finally release their highly-anticipated DVD »Forces Of The Northern Night«, containing two of the band’s live rituals: Their legendary show in Oslo, showing DIMMU BORGIR on stage with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and a bombastic choir, as well as the entire performance at Wacken Open Air 2012 with almost 100 musicians on stage. Both concerts present a spectacular sound scenario of raging black metal in front of an epic orchestral landscape and the band’s unique visuals.

This authentic combination of the beauty and the beast has long seemed like a natural evolution for fans, but much time, arrangements and commitment were necessary to put this gigantic production into reality and fill the stage with 90 minutes of mindblowing sets per night. The shows guide the fans through classics from the band’s discography – from the majestic finisher ‘Mourning Palace’ to the stomping manifesto ‘Puritania’ and the haunting ‘Gateways’… Norway’s DIMMU BORGIR know how to leave nothing behind but pure ashes.

“For us, this is the pinnacle of our career so far. As a band, we’ve always used a lot of symphonic elements in our music. But we haven’t been able to use a real orchestra live. We’ve had to use samples, synthesisers and so on, so this was a huge, awesome experience for us!”, states front man Shagrath.

On April 14th, both concert plus a bonus documentary feature will be available in many different formats that will soon be revealed.

And beware… this is not the only gem that the year 2017 holds for DIMMU BORGIR.
