Norwegian black metallers Dimmu Borgir have extended their partnership with Nuclear Blast recordings, ahead of the release of their much-delayed ‘Forces Of The Northern Night’ live DVD. One of the first ever signings to the label, the Norwegian three-piece have been with Nuclear Blast since 1997's 'Enthrone Darkness Triumphant'.
Commenting on the re-signing, the band have said; "we wish to inform you that Dimmu Borgir and Nuclear Blast have once again put pen to paper, acknowledging the past, present and future by opening another chapter in the history of extreme music! Stay tuned and watch this space for more updates on the upcoming new album and the ‘Forces of The Northern Night’ live DVD/Blu-ray release as it becomes available!"
Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger meanwhile has commented; "we at Nuclear Blast are super happy to extend the cooperation with our good friends in Dimmu Borgir! The future holds amazing opportunities and projects to be worked on together, the first being the eventual release of the long awaited ‘Forces Of The Northern Night’ live DVD! Keep your eyes peeled - darkness is upon us!"
Formed in Oslo in 1993, Dimmu Borgir have released seven albums to date via Nuclear Blast, including 2001's 'In Sorte Diaboli', which was the first black metal album ever to reach number 1 in Norway. The band's last release was 2010's 'Abrahadabra'.
