Dimmuborgir (note: not Dimmu Borgir, as the band's name) is a place in northern Iceland, where local legends purport that it is an entrance or gate to hell. In Icelandic "Dimmu" is an adjective that means dark, and "Borgir" is the plural of "Borg" which can mean city, town, castle, rocky hill, or shelter.

In 1994, tracks for a mini-LP called "Tusen vinters..." were recorded, but never released.
