10 Songs, 54 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

On their first studio album in nearly a decade, symphonic metal maestros Dimmu Borgir resume their ongoing collaboration with composer Gaute Storaas, who might as well be a member of the band by now. His orchestral scores and cinematic choir arrangements dominate Eonian, giving songs like “The Unveiling,” “Interdimensional Summit,” and “Alpha Aeon Omega” an epic Game of Thrones-intro-music feel. Meanwhile, Dimmu’s black-metal roots are alive and well in the serpentine riffs and dizzying drum work of “Council of Wolves and Snakes” and “Lightbringer.”

A Beautiful Masterpiece

For 8 years, fans have waited, and watched for the next Dimmu Borgir installment. This 10 track set has by far reached above expectations. Beautifully mixed and mastered with haunting keyboards, impending doom guitars, and quaking vocals. Dimmu Borgir have not only reached a pinnacle, they have also redefined the metal genre.

This is pitiful

...it's like Metallica's Death Magnetic all over again...it took you guys this many years to come up with THIS? No, thanks. You guys need Muustis back, or something....

Awesome

This album takes a few full listens to really embrace it. Like many others, I really like the old stuff and I think the song "I am sovereign" has a good mix of both old and new with the song changing halfway through, and almost to a new song. Everyone whining about this album now will probably love it in 5 years.
