PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s great to find the mighty Dimmu Borgir returning to NYC for one of these shows and to do it back at a space they played quite a few years ago. It was at this very venue that I got to share with the readers of my then two year old website, the malevolent majesty of the band during their “The Invaluable Darkness Tour” and for those who are new to the site, that full show disclosure can be examined HERE. This news makes me all the more excited for the upcoming album “Eonian” which you can order in advance on Amazon.com care of the links below. I will do my best to be a part of this show since its hometown turf. With the PiercingMetal.com website hitting its lucky thirteenth anniversary in a couple of days, I am taking this news as a bit of a Metal Media birthday present. What do you think about this news? Will you be trying to attend one of these select gigs? You can let us know down in the comments section below. Keep watching the website for other details about Dimmu Borgir and “Eonian” as they get revealed to us.
