''Stormblåst'' ("''Stormblown''" in English) is the second studio album by Norwegian symphonic black metal band Dimmu Borgir. It was released in 1996 by Cacophonous Records, and re-released in 2001 by Century Media. The album is sung entirely in the band's native language, Norwegian, and was their last album to be completely in Norwegian instead of English. In November 2005, a completely re-recorded version of this album was released.

For this album,more keyboards were employed, however the guitars and bass became more muscially textured.

This is also the last album where lyrics would be written by Aldrahn (of Dødheimsgard and Ved Buens Ende) until 2003's ''Death Cult Armageddon''.

The intro to "Guds fortapelse" is from Dvořák's Symphony no. 9 in E minor, Op. 95 "From the New World".

The title theme from the Amiga game Agony was adapted without giving the author, Tim Wright, proper credit by the keyboardist in the song "Sorgens Kammer".

This album is the single album that breaks Dimmu Borgir's trend to title the albums with three words, other than their newest album Abrahadabra.

The Century Media re-release has the lyrics sheets in the wrong order, and even has a few songs' lyrics missing (such as "Antikrist") - Wikipedia
