Limited 2 Blu-Ray Digipak Edition!

To imagine a metal world without Norway's legendary Dimmu Borgir, seems quite unfathomable. Founded in 1993 by Shagrath, Silenoz and Tjodalv, the Oslo trio infernale quickly gained momentum in the underground scene with their debut EP 'Inn I Evighetens Mørke.' The band released two albums, 'For All Tid' (1994) and 'Stormblåst' (1996) before they signed to Nuclear Blast and released 'Enthrone Darkness Triumphant' (1997). This was a major step forwards for the band, and an album that helped change the way the world acknowledged extreme metal in a massive way.

Dimmu Borgir might have started as a pitch-black pioneer of the Norwegian black metal scene, but quickly evolved into a hybrid of a beast, incorporating symphonic elements and other musical influences where few other bands dared to wander. The band evolved, both musically and lineup-wise, over the years, and Dimmu Borgir increased their status as a massive audience-draw with classic albums like 'Spiritual Black Dimensions' (1999), 'Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia' (2001) and 'Death Cult Armageddon' (2003).

The band has headlined tours and performed on big festivals worldwide, and toured together with non-typical peers as Korn, Devildriver and Judas Priest, to mention a few.

After a re-recording of the classic 'Stormblåst' album in 2005, entitled 'Stormblåst MMV,' and the critically acclaimed 'In Sorte Diaboli' (2007) and 'Abrahadabra' (2010), both albums that were musically challenging both the band and their audience, Dimmu Borgir topped it all with a sold-out performance in their hometown of Oslo, performing with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and a full scale choir.

The band has been on a hiatus for some years, but last year, they announced that the cooperation with Nuclear Blast Records was extended, and the first release in 2017 will be the highly anticipated DVD of this magnificent show, 'Forces Of The Northern Night.' This DVD does not only contain the entire show of Oslo that the band performed together with Kringkastingsorkestret (the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and Choir), but also their bombastic performance at Wacken Open Air with the National Czech Symphonic Orchestra and an in-depth documentary with behind-the-scenes footage of the massive stage production in Norway.

Prepare for three hours of raging symphonic black metal with almost 100 people on stage, songs from different band eras and unique visuals – a ritual as only Dimmu Borgir could perform.

The band is also working on a brand new studio effort, and one can only wonder what kind of dark sorcery the band has in store for us this time around. One thing is certain: it won't be for the faint-hearted.

The DVD/BluRay releases will contain the two shows with the following setlist and an additional documentary about the band and their work with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and choir.
