Biography

Dark Funeral obviously need no formal introduction. These iconoclasts in the employ of Satan have been around since 1993 and are still considered one of the genre’s leading bands. Last year they released the single ‘Nail them to the Cross’ as an introduction to new bassist Natt and frontman Heljarmadr, who replaced Emperor Magus Caligula after 15 years of faithful service. Their sixth studio album is set to drop late 2015 and it’ll be interesting to see how the new blood in the band translates in the songwriting process. The new line-up has already proven its live chops and the ingredients haven’t changed: corpse paint, spikes, incredibly fast black metal and blasphemous, anti-Christian lyrics. Thankfully some things never change. (Text: Geert Struyven / Translation: Nick Devos)
