Strange Norwegian Metal Band

There is a band with the strangely familiar name Dimmu Borgir. They play some sort of traditional Saami Joik. Quite catchy, and ok to move your feet to! This video (youtube) from an outdoor concert somewhere, shows clearly that Lappish music has great appeal to young people. Being an indigenous saami band, Dimmu Borgir (now, where have I seen that name?) has managed to gain international success. Good going Dimmu Borgir! (maybe they will be at the saami festival Riddu Riddu in 2007?) Dimmu Dimmu... (Hmmm, that name - it rings some bells, but I can't put my finger on it...)
