Turns out that Dark Funeral is more like a sinking ship than a thriving black metal band these days. After vocalist Emperor Magus Caligula (his mommy calls him Magnus Bromberg) announced his departure in July, followed by bassist B-Force only a month later, also drummer Nils Fjellström is now leaving the group. You may remember Nils Fjellström from the Monday news report where he announced his split from his other band Aeon.

Here's the official word from founding member Lord Ahriman (his driver's licence says Micke Svanberg): "Recently, you could read about Nils "Dominator" Fjellstrom's departure from Aeon due to personal/private reasons. Today we can confirm that he'll no longer be part of Dark Funeral either. And just like Aeon, we won't comment on this subject any further.

With that being said, I/we see no reason to waste any time here. Besides a new vocalist, we are currently looking for a new drummer too. If you do believe that you have what it takes for the job, please send us a brief introduction and some audio/video files/links of your performance to: vocalist [at] darkfuneral [dot] se

With the recent departures from the band I/we understand if this may cause some worries and/or confusion amongst you all, but you can be rest assured that everything is under total control! It's not like anyone have left the band on bad terms, but unfortunately, sometimes things like this is inventible, and needs to happen to secure the survival of a band. And there is absolutely no doubt in my/our mind that once the new line-up is complete. We will be a stronger and better band than ever.

Musically we will continue in the same paths. I'm still main responsible for all the song writings, incl. the drums. So you have nothing to worry about there. However, a new line-up will naturally color the sound in some ways, but I'm totally confident that it will only be for the better.

I've recently started writing and demoing new stuff in my home studio. And just like I - and guitarist Chaq Mol (his supermarket loyalty card says Bo Karlsson) - did when I/we worked on the pre-production for Angelus Exuro pro Eternus, I'm not only nailing down the guitar parts, I'm also programming the drums. So far it sounds totally fucking killer (of course!). However, at this point it's obviously still too early to say in what direction we'll be heading with the new material/album. We'll keep everything "wide open" until the new line-up is complete. And once complete, we'll continue to work on the new album as a full band. And this time I hope that everyone will be able to contribute with some killer material to make this to the best and strongest Dark Funeral album to date!"

"Musically we will continue in the same paths. I'm still main responsible for all the song writings, incl. the drums."

Well, it's clear why they're all leaving

Well, dark funeral's last fine record is diabolis interium (2001) so it's probably good for the band to fall apart.

Color the sound. You must greyer the music to create the macabre atmosphere that involves Dark Funeral usually.

Hahaha i thought Nils left Aeon in order to stay with Dark Funeral cuz this band was falling appart as it was already.....i was obviously wrong lol
Jiri - 08.09.2010 at 18:38  
Their only hope now is to chose Jiri as their new vocalist.

Bo Karlsson also stayed... for now.

I'm betting he's gonna leave as well soon.

Wtf ?
I bet the guitarist won't make it to the next week !!!
RavenKing - 09.09.2010 at 00:14  
This band is going nowhere. Not that it ever went anywhere, anyway.
I won't miss them the day they call a quit.
Ted - 09.09.2010 at 00:15  
Hhhh

Dang, three members leaving in three months. To say the least, that is not a situation that any band would want to be in (unless if the band is a collective, then it might not be as bad).
Baz Anderson - 09.09.2010 at 02:23  
The point that a lot of people are missing, is that the actual band has nothing to do with the drummer leaving. He left Aeon for the same reason. It is obviously something personal that is drastic on his side, nothing relating to the band apparently "falling apart"...

Jiri doesn't have the Time for that.

Get it? Because Jiri almost looks like Jari?

Fuck..it's late.
