Dimmu Borgir announce Forces Of The Northern Night DVD for April release

Official press release:

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 mind blowing 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.

Frontman Shagrath states:

“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, synthesizers and so on, so this was a huge, awesome experience for us!”
