From their social media announcement:
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.
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!”
On April 14th, both concert plus a bonus documentary feature will be available in many different formats that will soon be revealed.
The band then adds: “And beware… this is not the only gem that the year 2017 holds for DIMMU BORGIR.”
