Dimmu Borgir bring in bassist Victor Brandt

Dimmu Borgir have confirmed that they’ve recruited bassist Victor Brandt ahead of their upcoming tour dates.

The band will head out on the road from next month in support of their latest album Eonian, with Brandt – known for his work with both Entombed AD and Firespawn – ready to take to the stage with his new bandmates.

He says: “It's a great honour and pleasure to be a part of the mighty Dimmu Borgir. And such great timing for me to start at the release of their new album Eonian, which in my opinion is their best album so far. 

“The members of the band are as equally awesome to their music, so I am looking forward to good times ahead.”

Dimmu Borgir add: “We are very excited to have Victor become a part of the team! His experience, dedication and craftsmanship is very much appreciated and we look forward to sharing the world stages with him!”

The band’s former bassist Terje Andersen, who previously joined the Norwegian outfit as a session musician, is a full-time member of Susperia.
