Ozzfest 2004

Ozzfest 2004 - 2004-02-26

2004-02-26 - Nuclear Blast is proud to announce the participation of one of their premier artists, Dimmu Borgir in this year’s Ozzfest. As one of the only European bands on the festival and the only black metal band to bombard the main stage, Dimmu Borgir, third on the bill and directly before thrash metal gods Slayer, will take this tour of metal straight to black the only way Norway knows how!

Continuously representing the orchestral quality of black metal, Dimmu Borgir uses classical arrangements as an essential piece in their unique sound, carving a niche in the metal world as one of the genre’s most savage and creative acts. Since forming in 1993 Dimmu Borgir have released seven full length albums, with Death Cult Armageddon being the most recent and one of the only black metal releases to chart on the Billboard 200. Aided by 50-person philharmonic orchestra, Death Cult Armageddon has propelled the leaders of black metal one step closer in the cold stairwell to Baphomet’s Throne.

Silenoz (guitars) further describes his excitement over being able to perform on the main stage, "For us to participate on Ozzfest, and on top of that, to be playing on the main stage with the big league, is something that we are very proud of! Such a chance doesn't come by everyday, or if at all. We'll take this opportunity and turn it into Armageddon!!!"
