Silenoz was recently interviewed by Metal Wani, and offered an update on Dimmu Borgir’s new album.. According to him the effort, which is nearly complete, will be “diverse” and “very much varied sounding.”
Silenoz said the following:
“Well right now I’m calling from the studio in Sweden and we’re in the mixing stages—last final stages of the mixing of the album so that’s where were at at the moment.”
“We’re attacking it now with surgical knives and, you know, the small, extremely small, microscopic stuff that we feel is necessary to put the last pieces on the album.”
“As far as the live orchestra goes, we have decided not to use the live stuff this album. But the orchestral portion of this album is of course built up by real orchestral sounds. I think this album is sounding even more orchestral in the orchestral parts than the previous album even.
So it hasn’t lost anything in that aspect from the previous album. To me it’s of course a bit difficult to analyze at the moment; probably will be for the next couple years anyway.
It’s definitely a diverse, very much varied sounding album. Every song stands perfectly on its own feet. It offers so much stuff, there’s tons of layers as usual, but more control, maybe? So I can’t wait…”
