Dark Funeral

Dark Funeral is a black metal band from Stockholm, Sweden. They are one of the bands to have emerged in Sweden during the Second wave of black metal. Their lyrical themes have traditionally pertained to Satanism and anti-Christianity – with Lord Ahriman and Emperor Magus Caligula being practitioners of LaVeyan Satanism.

In their earlier years their lyrical themes usually revolved specifically around depictions of Hell and Satan, but since Emperor Magus Caligula joined the band their lyrics have focused more on blasphemy and anti-Christian rhetoric although there have been several exceptions to this.In 1995, the band signed up to No Fashion Records and started preparing songs for a full-length album. After an attempt to record The Secrets of the Black Arts at Uni-Sound studios (again with Dan Swanö), the band decided to relocate to Abyss Studio and re-record the entire album. They released its 5th album entitled “Angelus Exuro pro Eternus”, which was officially released on November 18 2009 via Regain Records.

In early 2010, the band announced “A Declaration of Hate – European Tour 2010”.
