Dimmu Borgir Guitarist Says There Will be “Surprises” On Band’s New Album
In an interview with Belgium’s GigView.be, Dimmu Borgir guitarist Sven Atle Kopperund discussed the band’s plans for releasing a new album, and what fans can expect on the forthcoming release:
"There will be some surprises, I'm sure, There's going to be more of everything in many ways. It's hard to describe at the moment, because we are in the middle of the process, so to speak. But I don't think any fan of DIMMU past and present will have anything to complain about. Of course, there are some people that are going to complain, but they will complain no matter what, they already made up their mind five months before the album comes out. [Laughs]"
When asked specifically if fans can expect more symphonic sounds from the band on the new record, Kopperund said, "Well, yeah, we have not utilized a live orchestra but we have orchestral sounds and samples that are played by an orchestra. I think it's going to be hard for most people to hear the difference. We still have the same choir that we used in [for the DVD recordings] Wacken and in Oslo, and now on the new album."
