Symphonic black metal band Dimmu Borgir will be performing one very exclusive show with a special, never-to-be-repeated set list with 53 members of Kork (the Norwegian Radio Orchestra) and 30 members of the Schola Cantorum Choir, who were musical guests on the Billboard-charting ninth studio album, Abrahadabra.




For fans of Dimmu's Wagnerian-inspired majesty, Saturday, May 28, 2011 at the Oslo Spektrum in Norway promises to be a momentous once-in-a-lifetime experience, as this is the band's only confirmed worldwide appearance throughout the summer.

Dimmu Borgir guitarist Silenoz states: "It is with great pride and a sense of fulfillment that we can finally announce this event as yet another ambition becomes reality!" Adds vocalist Shagrath: "Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen. Dimmu Borgir makes it happen. The circle will now be complete."

Tickets go on sale on Monday, February 21st for 570 Norwegian kroner. Only 150 V.I.P. tickets (1,500 Norwegian kroner each) will be available, which will include a Meet & Greet with the band one hour before doors, free tapas & beer, and a view of the entire performance from a special riser. Doors are at 6:30 pm. Showtime is 8 pm.

Hahahaha just laughed my ass off, this is the oldest and cheapest advertising slogan ever! Makes me somehow think of fastfood companies like Shagrath serving demon Burgers at McDonalds lol.
And well I think this is one of the most sellout phrases ever said in metal history
But a nice idea too...

The difference between what Metallica did and this, is that Dimmu Borgir have symphonic elements on their studio albums, so they have a good reason for doing this. Metallica hadn't.

Jiri - 21.02.2011 at 22:52  
Hopefully Shagrath and Silenoz have slimmed down for this special performance. They don't want to make fools of themselves like they did in their latest DVD, looking like black metal war elephants and all. It sucks that they fired fellow fatass, Vortex because he really fit in with the current look of the band. Though, their new drummer is also a load and a half. It is really just Galder who = thin.
Dark Blood - 22.02.2011 at 00:29  
Quite interesting. Would be nice to see a DVD out of this.

And they even add a cliché sentence just after, "The circle will now be complete", which is almost word for word a famous quote from Darth Vader when he's about to face Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Death Star.

Anyway, Dimmu Borgir is the perfect example of fast-food metal, so talking about burgers and McDonalds is pertinent here.

As much as I like Immortal and dislike Dimmu Borgir, I think Abbath and Horgh are even bigger. Though Abbath is less big on "The Seventh Date Of Blashyrkh" than he was when Immortal released "Sons Of Northern Darkness". He was damn big at that time.

Hm. I might actually attend this. I have a good friend in Oslo. But 75 is a statement. And even then I haven't flown anywhere with that. I will meditate on this.

One question: How can it be "the band's only confirmed worldwide appearance throughout the summer" if it's the ONLY show. I mean, how can it be worldwide?

This certainly reminds me of Dethklok, as others alluded to in several posts above.

Well pointed out. Unless they plan to be the first band to tour the solar system, so this would be their only show on EARTH this summer.

I think they mean to say that it's their only performance anywhere in the world this summer.

Then a few english lessons wouldn't hurt. I'm not even a native and I instantly noticed the sentence is flawed.

Wish i could go so bad!! this sounds so epic! i dont kno why everyone is hating im all about pushing metals boundaries and mixing the genre with different ideas. one of my dreams is to create a a Symphonic/Melodic Death Metal Opera and perform it with orchestration in a Opera Hall. haha kinda ridiculous but i think it would be pretty cool to combine Metal and Opera. Kinda like Nightwish's cover of Phantom of the Opera but stepped up into a full-blown 2 hour production.

Just because Dimmu Borgir are doing pseudo-Black Metal music dumbed down for the masses with a few symphonic elements thrown in and promoted by laughably childish videos doesn't mean they push any boundary.
Unless you refer to pushing the boundaries in the ridiculous department, then I could agree.

By the way, combining Metal music with symphonic elements is absolutely nothing new. It has been done to death already.

Im not saying its the first of its kind, its just when you think about Metal you dont typically think of a metal band backed by an orchestra, so its interesting and pretty unique. i am well aware that many other bands have orchestration in studio releases and Metallica and Therion have performed an orchestration like this before live but i think Dimmu is the first extreme metal band to do it performing live with the orchestra, which you could call pushing a boundary.

I'm not sure if Dimmu Borgir are the first extreme metal band to perform live with an orchestra, as I couldn't care less for the live aspect and never ever go to gigs. But I can tell for sure that Dimmu Borgir is certainly not the first extreme metal band to use symphonic elements in their music.
Also, I find the word 'extreme' used very loosely when applied to a band as commercial and accessible as Dimmu Borgir.
BitterCOld - 24.02.2011 at 07:49  
Dimmu is not particularly accessible... they just seem that way thanks to metal tolerance. shit i found crazy 20 years ago i don't bat any eye at now.

them using a symphony is kinda 'meh' to me. they already keyboard those influences in to their music... so it's sort of the same amped up.

i am not a fan of the aforementioned Metalica's post "...AJFA" works, but was more intrigued with their use of an orchestra because it was a bonus add to their music.

That's a good point. I mean, when a band uses lots of symphonic elements already in their music, by creating them on keyboards, I don't think playing them with an orchestra will make a big difference.

I don't know this personally, but I hear people say that hearing a synth from a speaker and an actual orchestra live is a huuuuuuge difference.
