DIMMU BORGIR – Eonian (Album Review)

DIMMU BORGIR Symphonic black metallars Dimmu Borgir return after an eight year gap with their new album Eonian. The title can be explained in several ways; firstly, something that is “longer than an era geologically” or my favourite “hell’s perpetual fires,” which certainly fits for what Dimmu are about normally. The questions for me on hearing about the new release were, will it be better than the last album Abrahadabra, which I wasn’t so keen…
