Today, Norwegian symphonic black metal giants, DIMMU BORGIR, unleash their highly-anticipated double-DVD Forces Of The Northern Night. On this brand new soundtrack of the apocalypse that isForces Of The Northern Night, you can witness two different live shows: Their legendary concert from Oslo that the band performed together with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and the Schola Cantorum Choir, as well as their entire performance at Wacken Open Air in 2012 with almost 100 musicians in action.
This unique combination of elegance and extravagance has long seemed like a natural evolution for fans, but much time, arrangements and commitment were necessary to put this gigantic production into reality and fill the stage with 90 minutes of mind-blowing sets per night. The shows guide the fans through classics from the band’s discography – from the majestic finisher “Mourning Palace” to the stomping manifesto “Puritania” and the haunting “Gateways”… Norway’s DIMMU BORGIR know how to leave nothing behind but pure ashes!
