Almost precisely 20 years after the Swedish black metallers Dark Funeral released their debut and landmark album, The Secrets of The Black Arts, and six years after the release of their last full-length studio album, the group is finally entering the studio again to create another blasphemous output.
With the release of the Nail Them To The Cross single earlier this year, Swedish black metal masters, Dark Funeral, are now preparing the release of their next studio album. And it will happen in 2016 at last. Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus, their previous album, was released in the distant year of 2009. Last year, they introduced new vocalist Heljarmadr and bassist Natt. The black metallers will enter the studio early next year and record the new material.
Black metallers Dark Funeral, now with new frontman Heljarmadr and bassist Natt, have revealed the details of their forthcoming new 7inch and digital single. On February 23rd, the Swedes will return with the release of their new single entitled "Nail Them To The Cross". Besides the title track, that has been released as a video some weeks ago, the single includes another brand new track called "Temple Of Ahriman". Both songs were recorded at Dugout Studios in Uppsala, Sweden and were mixed and mastered by Daniel Bergstrand. The cover artwork was created by Marcelo Vasco. Feast your eyes on the cover art below.

The black circle has been closed once again and it is with great pleasure that we would like to announce and welcome our new bass player, Zornheym.
Now, that we face our new line up, I must say that the atmosphere and the chemistry within the band feels absolutely fantastic. Furthermore, every single member of Dark Funeral is once again sharing a tremendously strong commitment, an absolute dedication as well as utter professionalism. And I am absolutely sure that what you, our dear fans, soon will be able to witness that this unholy gathering of these five knights in Satan's service is the most sinful and powerful Dark Funeral ever!
We have rehearsed together for a few months already. And it feels like we are already tighter and sound much better than ever before. So once we kick off touring again, we will be like an infernal war machine that will crush everything in its path.
