News : Dimmu Borgir touring Australia this October

By on May 31, 2018

Australia, you’ve been waiting patiently and the time has come to celebrate. Norwegian black metal kings, Dimmu Borgir, have announced they will be touring Australia for their first ever headline tour this October thanks to Soundworks Direct Touring. The news was dropped earlier today via the promotion company’s social media and eventually spread like wildfire. Dimmu Borgir was last in Australia in 2011 for the now-defunct Soundwave Festival.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to see the Norwegian black metal kings dominate the east coast of Australia this October. Catch them performing in Melbourne on October 17th at 170 Russell, in Brisbane on October 19th at Eatons Hill and finally in Sydney on October 21st at The Metro.

‘Australia! It’s been a long time coming and believe us when we proclaim pure excitement in returning to perform for you, our supportive fans! And, New Zealand, it’s with a pleasure that we can finally announce our first time to your shores – let’s make it a very special happening! We have all been waiting impatiently!’ See you all soon! – Silenoz/Dimmu Borgir

From the dark corners of Norway, the beast has surfaced. After 25 years, the world’s biggest black metal forge, DIMMU BORGIR, invades Australia & New Zealand for their first ever headlining tour. Casting shows that will viciously attack your senses whilst pushing them to their ultimate limits and showcasing the might and power of one of the most influential acts of the genre.

Conceived in the heart of the Norwegian black metal scene in 1993, DIMMU BORGIR quickly broke free from the boundaries of the genre, daring to combine a traditional raven black sound with opulent symphonic orchestration. Soon they turned into pioneers of their field, forging groundbreaking albums such as Enthrone Darkness Triumphant (1997), Spiritual Black Dimensions (1999), or Death Cult Armageddon (2003). Seven years have passed since their latest manifesto Abrahadabra, they are now returning to rip apart the space-time continuum with Eonian.
