With Nevermore, Children of Bodom and Immortal Hypocrisy
Apparently Norway is really pissed off. Fuck the fjords! We're sick of the snow! We hate constitutional monarchy! We loathe ice skating! And Norwegian Cruise Lines drives us bat-shit insane! OK, maybe not. But Dimmu Borgir certainly seems to have some pent-up Nordic nastiness. The dark metal outfit from the happy little town of Bergen is touring in support of its happy little album Death Cult Armageddon. The band prefers spiked leather chaps, pale skin and several shades of black eyeliner to complement songs such as "Lepers Among Us" and "Allehelgens Dod I Helveds Rike," which I think is Norwegian for "I Like Puppies and Watching Oprah." Either way, you'd be wise to expect lots of deep growling, guitar-grinding and the occasional virgin sacrifice. Just a typical day in Norway.
