Dimmu Borgir have announced that Swedish bass player Victor Brandt (Entombed A.D., Firespawn) has officially joined the team. The symphonic black metal titans will play their first show since 2012 in June and are planning to visit all corners of the world throughout this year and 2019. Victor is ready to storm the world’s stages with vocalist Shagrath, guitarists Silenoz and Galder, keyboarder Gerlioz and drummer Daray.
Victor comments: “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.”
The band adds: ”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 new full-length album Eonian was released on May 4th and immediately entered charts all around the globe, even snatching #32 in the international world charts. In countries such as the UK, Germany and Poland, the band even achieved the highest positions of their 25 year-long career.
