Norwegian Metaler, Silenoz of DIMMU BORGIR was interviewed by Blackdiamond of FIREBRAND ROCK RADIO in their Evening with Dimmu Borgir show in Nottingham city, on 24/11/11.
“I love it, absolutely love the new album, it’s the best since Metal Heart” Silenoz said his opinion about “Blood of the nations” the latest album of ACCEPT.
Also he claimed this about their upcoming 20th anniversary album: “To be in this industry for 20 years and still be a force to be reckoned with is really great, so we will do something special. It’s not like we’ll make a really different album just because it’s 20 years, but we’ve written some new material and have some cool ideas brewing”

“Abrahadabra”, the ninth album from DIMMU BORGIR, sold 9,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 42 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “In Sorte Diaboli”, opened with 14,000 units back in May 2007 to debut at No. 43. This was more than double the 6,400 first-week tally achieved by its predecessor, “Death Cult Armageddon”, which came out in September 2003 and landed at position No. 169 on The Billboard 200 chart.
The word “abrahadabra” (which roughly translates into “I will create as I speak”) first publicly appeared in Chapter III of “Liber AL vel Legis” (commonly referred to as “The Book Of The Law”) written by Aleister Crowley in Cairo, Egypt in 1904.
“Abrahadabra” was released in Germany on September 24, 2010, in the rest of Europe on September 27, 2010, and it was made available in North America on October 12, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
