The Swedish black metal legend DARK FUNERAL is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013 with a number of festival shows all over Europe. Formed in 1993 by Lord Ahriman the band quickly gained massive underground support by being one of the most ferocious and fastest blackmetal 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. Now it’s time to praise their diabolic past with a very special set-list on some of the summer festivals (more details soon) and also with a surprising return of their classic vocalist: Emperor Magus Caligula who left the band on good terms for personal reasons in 2010 will take over the mic again for the 2013 festivals. He was DARK FUNERAL’s frontman from 1996 to 2010 from the second album, "Vobiscum Satanas" (1998) album to the last "Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus" (2009).
DARK FUNERAL is currently looking for a permanent new vocalist. Serious applications can be send to email@example.com. After an extensive and exhausting tour through Asia and Australia in late 2012 the band parted ways with temporary vocalist Nachtgarm. Nonetheless, DARK FUNERAL proceed with the work on their upcoming new album as well as on re-issues of the entire DARK FUNERAL back catalogue out this year via Century Media Records.
Stay tuned for more news soon. Hail the horns!
