Dark Funeral confirm 20 Years of Satanic Symphonies special show

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 9th January 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

1994 is regarded as an important year for all things black metal in the Nordic hemisphere. In May of that fateful, Dark Funeral became apart of the scene, unleashing the storm that was their debut and legendary self-titled release. For 20 years now, Lord Ahriman and his fellow warriors have successfully spread their satanic anthems around the world infecting the masses with numerous albums and worldwide tours. In 2014, they are still spreading the darkness upon us! A highly anticipated new album is coming up later this year, but first things first:
On 3rd May 2014, Dark Funeral will present you an unforgettable gig offering a very exclusive set spanning their entire catalogue yet with focus on older classics. The band will be fronted by Emperor Magus Caligula. On top of this, former members will make exclusive guest appearances, too. Thus you will see Themgoroth, Typhos, B-Force, Dominion and Gaahnfaust live and onstage for the first time since they left the band. This night will be an absolute must for both old and new fans, so make sure you will be there.

This very special anniversary gig entitled 20 years of Satanic Symphonies will take place at Klubben, Stockholm on May 3rd and tickets can be obtained here at this location.

Dark Funeral to play first EP in its entirety at Graspop

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 10th June 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

The legends of Swedish black Dark Funeral are celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013 with a number of festival shows all over Europe. At the Graspop Metal Meeting Dark Funeral will play a never seen before exclusive setlist. This very setlist comprises the legendary debut MCD from 1994 (incl. the most popular Open The Gates) and the WHOLE of the classic The Secrets Of The Black Arts album from beginning to end – crowned by a special pyro show. The event is also in tribute to the founding member David “Blackmoon” Parland who died earlier this year. Blackmoon left Dark Funeral in 1996 after the release of The Secrets Of The Black Arts but will always remain an important part of Dark Funeral’s legacy. So don’t miss it and hail the sign of the horns.

ExclusiveGraspop 2013 setlist:

01 – Open the Gates
02 – Shadows Over Transylvania
03 – My Dark Desires
04 – In the Sign of the Horns
05 – The Secrets of the Black Arts
06 – The Dawn no More Rises
07 – When Angels Forever Die
08 – The Fire Eternal
09 – Satan’s Mayhem
10 – Bloodfrozen
11 – Dark are the Paths To Eternity

Formed in 1993 by Lord Ahriman, Dark Funeral quickly gained massive underground support by being one of the most ferocious and fastest black metal bands on earth. Since then they have spread their unholy gospel over the whole world and build up a loyal cult following from the coldest parts of the northern hemisphere to the hottest hell of Asia. Emperor Magus Caligula who left the band on good terms for personal reasons in 2010 has taken over the mic again for the 2013 festivals. He was Dark Funeral’s frontman from 1996 to 2010 from the second album, Vobiscum Satanas (released in 1998) album to the last Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus (released in 2009). A new Dark Funeral album is in the works and planned for early 2014 release.

Dark Funeral are currently looking for a permanent new vocalist – preferable from Scandinavia. Serious applications can be sent to vocalist@darkfuneral.se.
