DAGOBA's sophomore album, "What Hell Is About…", was released in February via Season of Mist. The follow-up to the group's self-titled debut was recorded at Antfarm studios in Denmark with producer Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, HATESPHERE, MNEMIC) and features a guest appearance on two songs by DIMMU BORGIR bassist/ARCTURUS frontman Simen Hestnaes (a.k.a. ICS Vortex, ex-BORKNAGAR, LAMENTED SOULS).
DAGOBA's chart success in their native France led to support slots with such acts as MACHINE HEAD (in Brussels),FEAR FACTORY (in Amsterdam),SAMAEL (North European tour) and KORN (in France).
