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

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.

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

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?

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

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 .
