Stormblåst MMV (sometimes referred to as Stormblåst 2005 Version or Stormblåst Re Recorded) is the seventh album by Norwegian black metal band Dimmu Borgir, released on November 11, 2005 by Nuclear Blast. It is a re-recorded version of the band's 1996 album Stormblåst. The album was re-recorded entirely by Silenoz and Shagrath with guest appearances from Hellhammer and Mustis. The album also has two new studio tracks, "Sorgens Kammer – Del II" and "Avmaktslave". The album included a bonus DVD with five live songs performed at Ozzfest 2004 and the American version included a free cloth patch. Before the music begins in "Alt Lys Er Svunnet Hen", the demonic phrase spoken by the possessed girl in the 2005 film Constantine can be heard.

Removal of material[edit]

The instrumental "Sorgens Kammer" from the original album could not be re-recorded due to copyright issues associated with the 1992 Amiga game Agony, as then-keyboardist Stian Aarstad had passed the song off as his own.[citation needed] Similarly, for the intro to "Alt Lys Er Svunnet Hen", Aarstad used parts from the Magnum song Sacred Hour; for this reason the intro is not part of the song on this re-recorded version.
