Dimmu Borgir start album No.10

Dimmu Borgir have begun pre-production work on their tenth album, they’ve confirmed.

The follow-up to 2010 release Abrahadabra is expected before the end of the year, and comes after the Norwegian trio took some time off.

Last year guitarist Silenoz told Infernal TV: “We’re always writing music. Usually we take a couple of years between each release, but now it’s two more.

“But we haven’t rushed – we’d rather take our time and make an album that we can fully appreciate and stand behind.”

The symphonic black metal outfit are also planning a live DVD release this year. Silenoz said in October: “Everything is just sitting there and waiting. I hope we can sort it out as soon as possible.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
