As the evenings come quicker and darkness comes thicker so we move into the time of winter. Returning after some time away from the Black Metal realm, Dark Funeral return once more into the fray of frost and fire. Currently on their European tour with Krisiun, we were able to catch up with both Lord Ahriman and Heljamadr on their London appearance. Sat ironclad and without the usual corpse paint get up its clear to see that both Ahriman and Heljamadr, when not on stage donning their imposing gear are simply fans of Black Metal. Revealing to us the process in which Where Shadows Forever Reign was brought to light and some of the inner turmoil members experienced and its cathartic release. We welcome you, once again, into the realm of shadows.
The Black Metal fan, characterised by having overly long black hair, spiked arm bands, a fierce opinion or two and of course corpse paint. The Death Metal fan, no doubt some form of camo in there, the only fan to use the words “brutal” more than most and of course a horrific t shirt. Coming together these most unlikely of genres are in fact the perfect pairing. Releasing their brand new album Where Shadows Forever Reign, after five years Dark Funeral have returned. Gearing up for their extensive touring schedule of another album cycle, the Swedish warriors take to London tonight. With the help of our Brazilian amigos Krisiun at the helm we see just what happens when both Black Metal and Death Metal meet.
After having released their brand new album Where Shadows Forever Reign just last week Dark Funeral can at last announce that they will be heading over to Europe for a headline tour this Autumn.
Inescapable, omnipresent, ubiquitous death manifests itself in many ways. The subject of innumerable stories and Dark Funeral’s morbid guiding light. Using death as a figurehead the band begin their latest foray into the underworld as we enter a land where light is a distant memory, where cold governs all, a land Where Shadows Forever Reign.
Returning this June, Dark Funeral are set to once more reclaim their rightful Black Metal crown. Now at long last the band have released their first single and title track from “Where Shadows Forever Reign“.
Welcome to the world Where Shadows Forever Reign.
Yesterday it was announced that Dark Funeral have at long last entered the studio to record their follow up sixth album.
Among the many other bands that have already scheduled new releases for the next year we can now add Dark Funeral to the ever growing list.
