DARK FUNERAL Hold Online Audition For New Vocalist
While black metal legends Dark Funeral haven't put out an album since Angelus Exuro pro Eternus in 2009, they have been working on some serious reissues with killer bonus material! They also want you to be their new vocalist (maybe).
Let's get to the vocalist thing first, right? According to the band's leader and guitarist Lord Ahriman:
"Dark Funeral is currently looking for a permanent new vocalist — preferable from Scandinavia. Serious applications can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org!"
So if you're reading this and you're in that area, get on it! Now about those reissues…
The first batch of reissues that will see the light of day will be the band's self-titled record from 1994 that will contain unspecified bonus material, The Secrets to the Black Arts from 1996 with a bonus disc of the band's Unisound Studios mix of the same album, and Vobiscum Satanas from 1998 with live tracks from 2003. The reissues will be out in Europe September 9 and in North America November 12 via Century Media. According to Ahriman about the reissues:
"I'm proud to announce that we are finally doing proper re-issues of our classic albums through Century Media. And to really spice things up, I have dug deep into my personal photo archives to come up with some killer photos/flyers, previously mostly unseen by the public eye. These will be the definite versions of our classic albums, especially the nice vinyls! Each album also contains detailed liner notes — and besides myself, Themgoroth, Dan Swanö and some other old friends that were present at the time I formed the band contributed to this. Unfortunately, I could not finish off these reissues with Blackmoon, who sadly passed away earlier this year, but he was fully aware of them and for In The Sign… and The Secrets… we at least added a tribute page to commemorate him."
All reissues will be available on black vinyl, in addition to a limited transparent blue vinyl (only 100 copies!) at CM Distro. With previously unseen photos, extensive liner notes by Olivier "Zoltar" Badin(Terrorizer, Iron Fist), bonus material and revamped layouts, these remastered classics are essential for every black metal maniac out there.
Ahriman mentioned that they would begin focusing on writing their next album as soon as possible and are potentially shooting for a 2014 release!
