The first trailer for "Eonian", the new album from Norwegian symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR, can be seen below. In the clip, singer Shagrath and guitarist Silenoz discuss the writing process for the disc, which will be released on May 4 via Nuclear Blast. "Combining orchestral elements with thrash metal riffs or black metal riffs can be quite challenging," Shagrath states. "But that's how we like to make music, to mix unexpected elements. I's almost like mixing water with oil — everyone knows that this doesn't really work, but we make it work!" The songwriting core of DIMMU BORGIR still consists of Shagrath and guitarists Silenoz and Galder. They are joined in the band's current lineup by drummer Daray and keyboardist Gerlioz. "Eonian" contains 10 new tracks, produced by the band itself and engineered by Jens Bogren. Emerging from the dark minds of the three songwriters, "Eonian" follows a philosophical concept, dealing with the illusion of time. Silenoz told Metal Shock Finland about DIMMU BORGIR's long-awaited follow-up to 2010's "Abrahadabra": "We feel that we're sitting on the best album that we could possibly do at this time, and personally, I think it's definitely our best album to date. Obviously, that's something that everybody says, but if I didn't believe that we would do our best album, there wouldn't really be any point doing a new one. So, yeah, I'm really excited about it, and I know that quite a few fans will probably be positively surprised." As for the musical direction of DIMMU BORGIR's new effort, Silenoz, said: "I think it's safe to say that [the parts that are] more epic and majestic are more epic and majestic, and the same goes for the brutal sound of DIMMU and also the primitive and more black metal sound of DIMMU is more black metal this time around. So you will have the more extremes of each part that we are known for." "Eonian" track listing: 01. The Unveiling 02. Interdimensional Summit 03. Ætheric 04. Council Of Wolves And Snakes 05. The Empyrean Phoenix 06. Lightbringer 07. I Am Sovereign 08. Archaic Correspondence 09. Alpha Aeon Omega 10. Rite Of Passage
