Pronounced "dim-moo bore-gear", the Dimmuborgir is a large area of unusually shaped lava fields east of Lake Mvatn, on Iceland. The Dimmuborgir area is composed of various caves and rock formations. It would seem that this has been formed from a lava-lake, out of which molten lava flowed and left behind strange formations. The most famous cave being Kirkjan - the Church - high with a large gothic style vault. Dimmu=foggy/dark, Borgir=castle/fortress.

-taken from dimmu-borgir.com


cant help you on the others sorry.

Bal Sagoth is a mean fuck from Conan.
I think he is Robert Jordans work. He is probably some evil god or something.

While I'm at it, Thyrfing is a cursed sword, given to one of Odin's heirs(don't remember his name). Whomever wields that sword, shall be struck with disaster.

I personally wonder about Borknagar. It sounds like something norse.
