Seven years after "Angelus Exuro pro Eternus" release, the Swedish black metal band Dark Funeral has announced the date of the new album coming out. The sixth full-length LP "Where Shadows Forever Reign" will be released on June 3 via Century Media Records.
The guitarist Lord Ahriman comments: "Wow, did 6 years pass already? Time surely flies fast! But you know what, we're back! DARK FUNERAL is back! And in true DARK FUNERAL spirit, like so many times in the past, we continue to push all boundaries musically & bring Black Metal into a new, fresh & dark dimension. This is by far our most professional, technical, dynamic & epic album thus far. And compared to previous albums, each new song offers a unique spirit & identity that is more profound than ever. And whether you like extreme Black Metal or not, I'm sure every fan of Metal will find songs on this album that they can enjoy to its fullest!
Every piece of the new album is combined into total perfection. The music, lyrics, musicianship, artwork & production. The artwork was made by Necrolord and the album was recorded at Dugout Studios with producer Daniel Bergstrand and studio engineer George Nerantzis. And I couldn’t be more satisfied with each and everyones contribution.
Anyway, it feels absolutely fantastic to be back with new music. And I can’t wait to let you all enjoy our latest Satanic Symphony 'Where Shadows Forever Reign'. See you all soon somewhere on the road!"
"Where Shadows Forever Reign" was recorded with two new band’s members, the vocalist Heljarmadr and the bass guitarist Natt. Both of them took part in "Nail Them To The Cross" video filming, released in 2014.
