Dark Funeral

Formed at a time when the Scandinavian metal scene was becoming flooded with bands, all striving for "true" rather than "trend" status amongst fans and peers, Sweden's Dark Funeral emerged as one of the most exciting groups in the genre. Like most artists in the early black metal scene, Dark Funeral's music was raw and powerful with a strong lyrical emphasis on Satanic imagery and anti-Christian themes. When many of their peers were starting to rely on the use of keyboards to distinguish their "evil" sound, Dark Funeral stuck to the roots of metal, avoiding synthesizers.

In 1993, guitarists Lord Ahriman and Blackmoon recruited fellow Swedes Themgoroth (bass) and Draugen (drums) to form the first incarnation of Dark Funeral. Together they recorded an EP simply entitled Dark Funeral, which established them as a one of the leading black metal bands of the time. No Fashion Records signed the band in 1994 and after replacing Draugen with drummer Equimanthorn -- like most black metalers he too lacked a last name -- they went into the infamous Abyss studios to start work on their next project. It wasn't until 1996 that their second release, Secrets of the Black Arts, reached their fans. 1996 was a big year for Dark Funeral. Secrets turned out to be a major seller by black metal standards, but the band suffered a major lineup change that would leave Ahriman as the only original member. So with Lord Ahriman and his new band -- Emperor Magus Caligula (bass/vocals), Alzazmon (drums), and Typhos (guitar) -- they embarked on a European tour, their first as a headlining act. Their stage act became quite a performance. They would emerge covered in blood and corpse paint while wearing long spikes and rivets and carrying ancient weapons. The shows also included a fire-breathing Emperor Caligula and pigs' heads impaled upon upside-down crosses -- kind of a low-budget Kiss concert. In 1998, No Fashion released their second full-length album, Vobiscum Satanas. The band then brought their stage show to the U.S. for the first of two tours, supported by Metal Blade records, who released Secrets of the Black Arts and Vobiscum Satanas domestically. By 2000 the band saw more changes in the lineup, with Dominion taking a vacant guitar spot and the position of drummer becoming a rotating door. The EP Teach Your Children to Worship Satan was released just before the band was signed to Necropolis Records. In 2000, Caligula and Dominion also released an album by their side project band, Dominion Caligula, for No Fashion Records. ~ Kevin Odle, Rovi

Ive liked stuff like this since i was 10
Follow me for a follow(:
True Metal is the only form of music that is played here.

It is not only the best form of music, but also the only style of music that let you truly express yourself.

Follow me for many forms of True Metal.

No bands formed after 1999 as 2000 was the official downfall of music.
Sometimes I wonder how the hell i've gotten into bands like this...but it doesnt matter cuz THERE F**KING AWESOME
lmfao@ twat waffle...
HELL YES !!!
Just getting in to black metal, is this a good band to start with?
I heard the Asian kid is beaten and horrible insults are hurled at him while he plays the keyboard. Then they dress him in little hooker boots and have him prance about yelling, "hail satan". You can hear his cries in the background of heart of ice
Yeah willow does that a lot on bands like this one.
Guy below me is a twat waffle all he ever does is talk trash about bands trying to make himself seem a mysterious intellectual . F*cking poser
They use an Asian kid from Napa Valley to make the keyboard sounds and then he emails them to their Jewish producer. So hard core?

blazing fast synthesizer free badass black metal
There are two types of satanism. Theological and Atheistic. Get both of the stories right before being an a** hole. One could argue that theological satanism has been around since the creation of Christianity , whereas atheistic satanism has been around since the 1960s
I have nothing better to do than debate with you strangers on my pandora page. J/K
Blistering raw Black Metal!!! I Love this kind of shiit!!
*facepalm* try and keep it about the band, people.
Save debating and bantering for forums.
satanim is almost as stupid and christanity
BODY MIND AND SOUL TO BLACK METAL!!!!!!! ! ! ! SACRIFICIAL OFFERING
Dark Funeral Really sets a high standard for the Black Meatal scene. these guys are surgical musicians and they dont get the respect they deserve
It seems, there isn't a single post I see that says any of you know what real satanism is. The roots of the name Satan and it's interpretati o n s were around thousands of years before Christianity was even conceived. The vile religion is really Christianity . It encourages devolution and spiritual enslavement, because it aims at going against primal human nature. It forces you to place your future in some f**k in the sky's hands. True Satanism is about independence , making a better life for yoursel
i love this band period no matter what any one says about them this is the first black metal band i herd and is still one of the best plus cradle of filth long live black metal!!!
Why is the Dark Funeral thread some kind of confessional ? . . Y o u humans do realize that these guys are artists right?I mean c'mon its an act.At one point and time the mysticism around Alice Cooper painted him as some evil chicken sacrificing snake charmer nowadays he is the old guy playing 18 holes.IMO one religion is just as dumb as another but be that as it may everyone has the right to choose their own faith.Don't take religious bantering within ART seriously.AR T remains open to interpretati o n .
satanism is a simply pput evil and vile religion. i am a wiccan and even though i cant agree with the concept of dark funeral their music is impressive.
B-force (Bass) and Dominator (drums) have both left Dark Funeral in the last month following Caligula's lead........ .
Some bad a** s**t right here. I don't care if they are Satanist. Good music is good music no matter what religion it is.
Sucks to hear that Caligula has announced after this tour ends later this month he will no longer be a member of Dark Funeral. This news combined with the fact that their latest album 'Angelus Exuro Pro Eturnus' is arguably their best leaves me puzzled about why Caligula is leaving. In his official announcement he maintains his departure is of his own choice and nothing to do with anykind of decention within the band. IMO they should reach out to Gaahl (Ex-Gorgorot h , G o d s e e d ) t o fill the position.

Helldiva, Satanism is in fact a religion. There is a form of it that is a kind of philosophy, it begins with an l I think. Anyway, Satanism is a real religion that originated way back. http://www.f r e e w e b s . c o m / e r i d u 6 6 6 / O r i g i n s . h t m l
Brad, Satanism isn't a religion. It mocks all religions and their various dogma. It's a PHILOSOPHY as opposed to a set indoctrinati o n . It's a fun expression of irony!!
Heh...It's fun to blast this band in church and annoy the hell out of people
F**king awesome. At the moment I'm listening to their song Goddes of Sodom (live) and wow this is definitely the black metal band to see live.
Cool band. Satanism is as dumb as any religion.. but it sure does annoy the hell out of the religious. :D
When will Pandora get the new album?
sblock16
Satanism is for only the most brainless f**kers the world can produce. As is all religion. That aside, Dark Funeral is amazing.
Dark Funeral is one of the few Black Metal Bands that is truly impressing me more with every album they release. Their new album is so sick, I give it a 9/10 and the video for 'my funeral' is killer. Although their new album is not slated for a U.S drop until January, I ordered my copy and it does not disappoint. Right now IMMORTAL's new album is my #1 album of the year but Dark Funeral is a close second. Followed closely by Marduk's 'Wormwood' album.
dark funeral is the best and deserve more credit, they have gone through more lineup changes than anyone else. and lord ahriman is underated. and if any of you faggots disagree, look at Dark Funerals latest album.
I ask a question to all the Black metal "community" in Pandora (and maybe to Pandora "owners" too, if they read this). Why there's no Music from the great Black Metal band "ANCIENT" here??
I have to say that Satanism is for idiots, and I used to be a Satanist. Religion is just for sheep, any intelligent person will see past all the lies and find out that the universe and life have no meaning except for what we place on it. There is no god, no heaven, no hell, just the universe. Dumb little s**ts, thinking that by worshiping Satan they can be considered cool. Emperor and Immortal were both f**king amazing black metal bands and they did it without resorting to such childish bullshit
