In previous updates, black metallers Dark Funeral have referred to the upcoming 20th anniversary show they are preparing. Apart from working on a new album to be released this year, the Swedes have now revealed more about this special show. The anniversary gig entitled 20 years Of Satanic Symphonies will take place at Klubben, Stockholm in Sweden on May 3rd.
While black metallers Dark Funeral haven't released a new album since 2009's Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus, the new album is in the works. The band's mastermind Lord Ahriman has recently posted an update on the band's recent activities discussing the new album, and an exclusive 20th anniversary show in Stockholm, Sweden which is being planned for spring 2014. Also, they are still looking for a new permanent vocalist.
The Swedish black metallers Dark Funeral are celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2013 with a number of festival shows in Europe. At the Graspop Metal Meeting, the group will play a never seen before exclusive setlist. This setlist comprises the debut self-titled EP from 1994 and the whole classical The Secrets Of The Black Arts album from beginning to end with a special pyro show.
Swedish guitarist David Parland has passed away at the age of 42 but the cause of death has yet to be revealed. He was a founding member of the Swedish death metal band Necrophobic and Parland later went on to start Dark Funeral with Lord Ahriman. After that, he joined Infernal.
The Swedes Dark Funeral are celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2013 with a number of festival shows all over Europe. As the band prepares to praise their diabolic past with a very special setlist on some of the summer festivals (expect more details soon), they announced a surprising return for these shows of their classic vocalist: Emperor Magus Caligula. Meanwhile, the band is also looking for a new permanent vocalist.
Swedish black metallers Dark Funeral have recently announced a short set of tour dates down under across Australia. The tour is scheduled for November after they finish their run in North America with Morbid Angel and Grave. The tickets go on sale on June 28th.
With a completely new line-up, Swedish black metallers Dark Funeral are now embarking on tour, dubbed Satanic War Tour - The Return, around South, Central and Latin America. The tour kicks off in November through December.
The black circle has been closed once again and it is with great pleasure that we would like to announce and welcome our new bass player, Zornheym.
Now, that we face our new line up, I must say that the atmosphere and the chemistry within the band feels absolutely fantastic. Furthermore, every single member of Dark Funeral is once again sharing a tremendously strong commitment, an absolute dedication as well as utter professionalism. And I am absolutely sure that what you, our dear fans, soon will be able to witness that this unholy gathering of these five knights in Satan's service is the most sinful and powerful Dark Funeral ever!
We have rehearsed together for a few months already. And it feels like we are already tighter and sound much better than ever before. So once we kick off touring again, we will be like an infernal war machine that will crush everything in its path.
Some of you might be surprised to see a new face at the Hultsfred Festival tonight when Witchery enter the stage to declare Witchkrieg over Sweden.
Explains guitarist Patrik Jensen (also in The Haunted): "We are saddened to announce the departure of Legion (ex-Marduk, ex-Devian), singer of last years Witchery ear crusher, Witchkrieg. Unfortunately, conflicting schedules made a continued collaboration impossible. We are very thankful for Legion's input and work on our latest album, and we wish him only the very best for the future. Witchery will however not remain without a leader to take them thru the netherworlds and beyond. None other than Emperor Magus Caligula (ex-Dark Funeral) has decided to once again adorn his armor, and go off to battle for the better of darkness and evil."
Swedish black metal band Dark Funeral are proud to introduce Steve "Nachtgarm" Marbs as the new vocalist of the band.
Dark Funeral guitarist Lord Ahriman had the following to say: "I must admit that it surely was not an easy task to find a worthy replacement for Emperor Magus Caligula, who has been doing an amazing job for Dark Funeral during the past 15 years. He has not only been "the vocalist" for the band, but also a very good friend of mine and he always will be!
Anyway, 10 months of intense search worldwide have finally given result. And I'm very proud to announce and welcome Steve "Nachtgarm" Marbs (Negator) to the horde.
I think, I can speak for everyone in the band and say that besides completely knocking us down with the strength of his vocals and wide register, what truly blew us away was his presence, energy and the amazing spirit he showed during the final audition. He just came into the rehearsal room, found and took his rightful spot. And then just set the whole place on hellfire!
Nils "Dominator" Fjellström (ex-Aeon, In Battle), who announced his departure from Swedish black metallers Dark Funeral only a couple of months ago, has now rejoined the band.
Dominator comments: "After a short break of focusing on other aspects of my life, it's a great privilege for me to announce my return to Dark Funeral. The time off has fueled my inspiration and urge to get back behind the kit and annihilate. It's an honour to play alongside my fellow brothers again. May Dark Funeral rise to dominate once more."
Mainman Lord Ahriman comments: "It feels absolutely killer to be working with Dominator again. He's not only an amazing drummer, but also a very good friend. And I'm glad he's back in the band. A massive welcome back brother! Now, let's together set the world ablaze and conquer the universe once and for all!"
