News: Dark Funeral Announce Remastered Debut Album

Legendary black metal icons Dark Funeral have announced the remixed, remastered version of their debut album set for release August 9. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Dark Funeral, the band has shared the first re-recorded single, “Open the Gates,” as a visualizer. The clip was created by 12 Inch Media.

Guitarist and original member Lord Ahriman comments:

“In January 1994, Blackmoon (RIP) and I put our entire income and savings into a recording session and pressing 1,000 copies of our 4-track debut Mini-CD. A Mini-CD we released ourselves too. To now reach the significant milestone with an epic 30th anniversary is of course very honorable for me & the band. Three decades of Swedish Black Metal filled with precious memories. It is now time for us to reflect on what started it all, a 30-year epic journey, filled with experiences and an unbreakable bond. And in this honor, we have breathed new life into these legendary songs & given them an honest but modern update. Enjoy!“

Music & Lyrics by Blackmoon & Lord Ahriman. The 1994 Recordings & Mixes were handled by Dan Swanö and Mastered by Thomas “Plec” Johansson. The 2024 Recordings & Mixes done by David Castillo and again Mastered by Thomas “Plec” Johansson. The artwork was created by Blackmoon & Lord Ahriman.
