After their last two successful albums “Abrahadabra” and “Eonian”, Norwegian black metal powerhouse Dimmu Borgir herald their 30-year legacy by releasing, together for the first time, a collection of their cover songs. The album “Inspiratio Profanus” will be released on December 08, via Nuclear Blast Records, and features versions of songs by not only the likes of Venom, Bathory and Celtic Frost, but also Deep Purple and G.G.F.H.

Chaoszine had the chance to catch up with Dimmu Borgir guitarist Silenoz about “Inspiratio Profanus” in detail, as well as the band’s plans for an upcoming new album. The musician revealed they are more than half way done with the new effort, and will take the next few months to work on songs that are “half finished or 60 to 70% finished”, in his words.

Silenoz also spoke about the reasons behind unleashing a compilation of cover songs that had been previously released by the band, praising the album format. The fact that the compilation marks Dimmu Borgir‘s 30th anniversary is by no means a coincidence.

He also spoke of the band’s future touring plans, including a performance scheduled for 2024’s Tuska Festival.
