The Making Of Dimmu Borgir’s “Eonian”; “Writing The Album”

It’s been quite a few years since the Metal world has gotten a brand-new album by Symphonic Black Metal giants Dimmu Borgir and soon “Eonian” will be unleashed upon the world. The bands issued two singles already with “Interdimensional Summit” and “Council Of Wolves And Snakes” and now its time to join Silenoz and Shagrath at Blackcraft Cult as they discuss the writing of the new album.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t have much to add about this clip and that’s usually the case with these presentations unless something super shocking is revealed. Stay tuned for any of the follow-up clips about this albums creation and be sure to order “Eonian” nice and early care of the Amazon.com link below.

Nuclear Blast Presents: Overkill “Live In Overhausen” Official Trailer #1

Historically speaking, the Thrash Metal titans known as Overkill have been wrecking our necks since 1980 and their catalog is rife with tunes that inspire some of the wildest mosh pits ever experienced. 2018 finds the band celebrating two of their bodies of work with the live CD/DVD entitled “Live In Overhausen” which comes care of their label, Nuclear Blast Records. Recently the band unveiled the first trailer about the release. Check it out.

About The Clip: Celebrating the band’s history, Live In Overhausen, captured not one but two album anniversaries. Fans assembled on April 16, 2016 at Turbinenhalle 2 in Oberhausen, Germany for the 25th Anniversary of “Horrorscope” and 30th Anniversary of where it all began, “Feel The Fire”. A full night of kill from the past played loud and in its entirety!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told this is not a big deal of a trailer outside of it sharing the ideas that will be manifested in the forthcoming live video release and its subsequent album. It’s a nice teaser but the band founders who speak (Blitz and D.D.) don’t really outline much more than they decided to do two of their classic albums for the recording. It’s not a bad idea since we haven’t had a live Overkill recording in many, many years. This behind the scenes clip doesn’t even feature any of their sonic live show outside of a quick blink of the stage from the audience. I’ll be watching out for additional trailers and will surely share them here when we are alerted. Did you like this teaser? Chime in below as its always welcome. You can pre-order the release care of the Amazon.com link below.
