Dimmu Borgir – Interdimensional Summit: A GIF Breakdown
Strobe lights, makeup, cheesy keyboards, and spikes on every goddamn thing? Dimmu Borgir is back, baby!
Dimmu Borgir has been around for 25 years. They’ve sold a butt ton of records and toured the world over and over and I just don’t get it. My earliest memory of the band was seeing their shirt for sale on the wall of band tees at Hot Topic. When I finally listened their music years later I was blown away by how silly it all seemed. Between the band’s over-the-top costumes and makeup and the bombast of horns and keyboards, it all seemed like a big joke.
After a seven year absence, Dimmu Borgir returns with their upcoming 10th full-length EONIAN. Will it be any less silly than their previous records? If lead single “Interdimensional Summit” is any indication, the answer is a resounding LOLBUTTZ.
I enjoyed this video so much that I had to break it down into easily digestible gif-like chunks. Please enjoy.
You would think that this guitarist is the star of this whole goddamn show.
But you would be wrong. The other guitarist, if you couldn’t tell by his guitar strap or his goatee, is the alpha of the group.
This is the exact face Shagrath makes when he googles his side project “Ov Hell” and finds us instead.
“Toilet ov Hell? There can only be one!” *keyboard flourish*
My man rocking the ultra wide Jncos.
I just realized the reason Galder’s face looks so distracting is because he put makeup on top of his mustache. Next level creepy.
If you just stare at this gif for four minutes you can absorb the whole song without listening to it.
*punches you in the arm*
Dimmu Borgir’s EONIAN is out May 4th on Nuclear Blast. You can pick it up here.
