Nomads plunging into the vast abyss Unattached, fleeting through the chasm Naked in pure darkness
Embracing the new dawn We are gods here for the taking Yield to the dragon’s embrace We are wolves and snakes Yield to the dragon’s embrace As pawns in this secret game No one knows nothing (nothing) Yet, in the realm of sacred play Everyone knows everything A winged and secret flame Leaving this paradigm A dimension we are set to flee A winged and secret flame Leaving this paradigm A dimension we are set to flee We are gods in the making We are here for the taking Yield to the dragon’s embrace We are of transcendence We are wolves and snakes A winged and secret flame Leaving this paradigm A dimension we are set to flee The arrival is in the departure (departure!) We are sculpted into life By the hands of death We are gods here for the taking We are wolves and snakes Yield to the dragon’s embrace

  7. w13d0w says:

    Shagrath is still the best voice in black metal. I just hope they dial back on the melodic a bit for the next album and bring back more blast beat heavy stuff. Saw them perform live in munich last friday and it was awesome

  19. VeliusSuilev says:

    RIP old Dimmu. Yet further proof that Mustis was the main driver of the melodies we knew and loved. The main riff here is a simplistic tremolo picking/arpeggio that a beginner could have made up through trial and error – i.e., without any musical training. It's clear Silenoz/Shagrath/Galder are not good composers. And relying on a symphony orchestra creates a dichotomy that doesn't match the genre. Mustis knew how to integrate thematic symphonic elements properly into this kind of music. The disconnect isn't so bad on this track, but elsewhere on the album (Interdimensional Summit, say) it's glaringly obvious. Please Dimmu. Stop using an orchestra, get a keyboardist with a background in black metal worth their salt who knows composition and is classically trained. And this isn't even talking about the loss of Vortex. His clean vocals just can't be replaced. Getting rid of those two was a steep cost to pay for Shagrath's ego and unwillingness to give Mustis even the bare minimum credit for composing the bulk of songs during his time with them. It's a shame, really.

  32. Jack Wareing Films says:

    Very cool video! DIMMU BORGIR is amazing! Even from all the way back from 'For All Tid' to 'Abrahadabra' to 'Eonian' they have always continued to progress in their music, but at the same time always maintaining their original unique dark symphonic black metal style.

  33. Shane Scalise says:

    So what exactly makes a band Black Metal? Every genre has a characteristic that defines it, but I see the Black Metal label thrown on a lot of stuff. Is it more about the lyrical content? Or is it the dissonance and the atmosphere created with the instrumentals?

  34. Will Killit says:

    The thing about Satanic Black Metal, is you Learn Secrets about The Lord Almighty God's, enemies…

  35. ravenwda007 says:

    Wintersun – Eternal Darkness

    Is still the best atmospheric symphonic black metal I’ve heard.

    I like this one too. Such a brilliant experiment with a dark, calm, and soothing middle part.

    Крутой трэк, не реально крутой клип с стилизацией. Нет смысла описывать великолепие этой группы, радующая столько лет меня лично и других фанов, хочется от них творчества. Думаю с деньгами нет проблем и теперь вы можете радовать нас своим творчеством чаще. Возможно они не утратят желание играть и создавать шедевры. Вы уже вместе с богами! Так пусть эта мысль даст вам силы создавать и жить долго, а боги будут на вашей стороне и защитят ваших детей, возможно они будут идти по вашим стопам! В добрый путь!

    Is it wrong that I actually like this New Dimmu song?!?! Seriously, it's amazing!!!! I love this !!!!! m/ From Stormblast , Enthrone Darkness, Death Cult Armageddon….. to this… the transition is not bad at all!!!!! I love this dark atmosphere and they have grown! Maybe not the black metal some people want to hear but Dimmu Borgir has always been more than just a simple black metal band!
