Official press release (Nuclear Blast Records): The updated, re-recorded version of Dimmu Borgir's 1996 album, Stormblast, will be released through Nuclear Blast America on February 7, 2006 with a limited collectors item. This edition will only be available in the North American pressing. Stormblast was completely re-recorded with producer Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Pain) and Mayhem's Hellhammer on drums. The new version of Stormblast adds two brand-new audio tracks: "Sorgens Kammer – Del II" and "Abmaktslave," plus a live DVD of an entire set filmed from last year's Ozzfest. The album will be released in a cool digipack design with a booklet containing a lot of old pictures of Dimmu Borgir. A LP version containing a bonus single with the two new bonus tracks will also be released. Dimmu Borgir will shortly be filming a video for the track "Sorgens Kammer – Del II" with director Patric Ullaeus of Sweden's Revolver Film Company. The band are scheduled to begin writing material for their next studio album this fall for a tentative late 2006 release. The CD will be "a full story/concept album," according to a posting on the group's web site.
