After their last two successful albums Abrahadabra and Eonian, DIMMU BORGIR herald their 30-year legacy by releasing, together for the first time, a collection of their cover songs. The album Inspiratio Profanus is being announced with the release of the thunderous first single, "Black Metal" by the extreme metal pioneers VENOM. The album Inspiratio Profanus will be released on December 8th via Nuclear Blast Records.

Silenoz comments about the album Inspiratio Profanus: "We're pleased to announce the Inspiratio Profanus release! We thought it was about time to finally compile the cover songs we've done over the years and give these renditions an updated mastering, all in one package, highlighting some of our many influences!"

Silenoz states about the first song "Black Metal": ""Black Metal", the track, and its origin, features something really primeval, raw and unhinged. There is lawlessness and danger connected to it. We did our best to capture the spirit of the ancient gods' rock 'n roll 24 years later. Did we do it justice? I think so."

Inspiratio Profanus Tracklist:

  • "Black Metal" (Venom)
  • "Satan My Master" (Bathory)
  • "Dead Men Don't Rape" (G.G.F.H.)
  • "Nocturnal Fear" (Celtic Frost)
  • "Burn In Hell" (Twisted Sister)
  • "Perfect Strangers" (Deep Purple)
  • "Metal Heart" (Accept)
  • "Nocturnal Fear (Celtically Processed)" (Celtic Frost)
As they conjure new, dark compositions, DIMMU BORGIR take a retrospective look back, celebrating the band's 30th Anniversary and the seminal artists that left a defining imprint on their sound.

Conceived in the heart of the Norwegian black metal scene in 1993, DIMMU BORGIR quickly broke free from the boundaries of the genre, daring to combine a traditional raven black sound with opulent symphonic orchestration. They became pioneers within their own field, forging groundbreaking albums such as Enthrone Darkness Triumphant (1997), Spiritual Black Dimensions (1999), & Death Cult Armageddon (2003), invading the entire world with headline tours and eventually turning into the most influential act of their genre after nine full-length studio releases.

After their last two successful albums Abrahadabra and Eonian and the remixed version of Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia, DIMMU BORGIR herald their 30-year legacy by releasing, together for the first time, a collection of their cover songs. Inspiratio Profanus features a cover of "Black Metal" (VENOM), the genre-defining "Perfect Strangers" (DEEP PURPLE), fan favourite "Burn In Hell" (TWISTED SISTER), and electrifying renditions from the legendary CELTIC FROST, as well as other immensely influential artists!
