Listen To DIMMU BORGIR’s Cover Of DEEP PURPLE’s ‘Perfect Strangers’

Dimmu Borgir 2023

DIMMU BORGIR have released a cover version of DEEP PURPLE‘s “Perfect Strangers.”

The song is taken from DIMMU BORGIR‘s upcoming covers album, Inspiratio Profanus, which will be released on December 8th via Nuclear Blast Records.

Silenoz states about the cover of ‘Perfect Strangers’: “The idea of ​​doing ‘Perfect Strangers’ came about quite a while before we actually got around to recording it. It’s a well-known song by a very well-known band that has influenced many to pick up an instrument. I mean, is there anyone who doesn’t like DEEP PURPLE?! We incorporated our little twist to it while at the same time wanted to stay close to the original. But perhaps it is the more obvious aspects that come to mind when hearing it; the integration between the main musical elements that we also made use of since the beginning like keyboards and guitars.”

Inspiratio Profanus also features 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!
