According to Bild.de, Norwegian symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR are threatening to sue German rapper Bushido for allegedly using the melodies from DIMMU BORGIR's songs on his albums without permission.

DIMMU BORGIR manager Yvette Uhlmann stated: "The band was contacted via the Internet and was told that Bushido had stolen the melody of their song 'Mourning Palace' and that he used it in his song 'Mittelfingah'. Since we were not contacted by Bushido through proper channels and told about his desire to do this, it is clear that Bushido has seriously infringed our intellectual property rights."

DIMMU BORGIR is now seeking compensation from Bushido and will file a lawsuit against the 29-year-old rapper if the two parties fail to come to an agreement.

DIMMU BORGIR guitarist Silenoz is quoted as saying: "If the German rapper in question does not agree to compensate us adequately, we will sue him! Whoever crosses us will face serious consequences."

Lawyers for DIMMU BORGIR and Bushido are currently negotiating a possible settlement.

Bushido has declined to comment on the case.

Although only one track from DIMMU BORGIR is mentioned in the Bild.de article, there are in fact two songs from each artist that are at the center of this dispute. Listen to the tracks below and form your own opinion as to whether DIMMU BORGIR has a valid case.

1) Dimmu Borgir- Mourning Palace

BUSHIDO - "Mittelfingah"

2) DIMMU BORGIR - "Alt Lys Er Svunnet Hen"

BUSHIDO - "Engel"

That rapper better be careful, those black metal fans...

He ripped both songs off, although Morning Palace being the most obvious.

He probably put it to better use than they did.

I've only heard whatever album The Sacrelgious Scorn was on, and thought "pass."

I may give the first three a try. :3

I don't buy that, their new stuff is just as good as their old stuff, it is just different. Although it is a shame they kicked out Vortex and that other dude. Vortex being the reason I listened to Dimmu Borgir, I don't listen to much Dimmu because their lyrics are just so damn evil.

Enthrone Darkness Triumphant, Stormblåst and For All Tid are really good albums. In 1998 they were respected as much as Enslaved, Mayhem andHellhammer.

Ha ha, a definite no.

Black Metal Wise I listen to Immortal, Satyricon, Primordial, Dark Fortress, and then a ton of Unblack Metal such as Vaakevandring, Frost Like Ashes, Admonish, Azmaveth, Grave Declaration, Pantokrator, and Shadows of Paragon.

I'm glad they kicked out Vortex. Maybe now he can join a band where his talents won't be wasted.

Enslaved is awesome, and they aren't satanic so your little feelings won't get hurt.

Agreed, Dimmu Borgirs later albums have made me somewhat embarrassed to admit that their first couple of albums were actually pretty damn good, completely different from what they play now.
