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" (1998) album to the last "Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus" (2009).
A new DARK FUNERAL album is in the works and planned for early 2014 release.
