Norwegian black metal act DIMMU BORGIR has announced that Victor Brandt of ENTOMBED A.D has joined the band’s ranks as their new bass player. After four years of stage absence, the Norwegian symphonic black metal titans will play their first show in June and will tour extensively throughout 2018 and 2019 promoting their new album “Eonian”. Victor is ready to share the stage with vocalist Shagrath, guitarists Silenoz and Galder, keyboardist Gerlioz and drummer Daray.
Brandt stated: “It’s a great honor and pleasure to be a part of the mighty Dimmu Borgir. And such great timing for me to start at the release of their new album, ‘Eonian’, which, in my opinion, is their best album so far. The members of the band are equally awesome to their music so I am looking forward to good times ahead.”
The symphonic black metal masters have released their latest album “Eonian” on May 4th via Nuclear Blast Records. This marks their first release since 2010’s “Abrahadabra” and is produced by none other than Jens Bogren, who was also involved in the production of the latest Amorphis album out this May 18th also via Nuclear Blast.
