Dimmu Borgir release remixed & remastered version of “Hybrid Stigmata – The Apostasy”

One of Norway’s most creative black metal bands Dimmu Borgir released the groundbreaking “Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia” in 2001. Dimmu Borgir celebrate this seminal album by releasing a brand-new sonic experience. The band are now releasing the remixed & remastered version of “Hybrid Stigmata – The Apostasy”.

“Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia” (Remixed & Remastered) is available as a 3 LP Box, CD Digipak and digital. Dust Of Cold Memories includes extensive bonus material, which includes the pre-production of “Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia” and instrumental rehearsals.

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. Soon they turned into pioneers of their field, forging groundbreaking albums such as “Enthrone Darkness Triumphant” (1997), “Spiritual Black Dimensions” (1999), or “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”, new music from Dimmu Borgir follows with their remixed & remastered version of “Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia” which was originally released in 2001.
