Nils “Dominator” Fjellström Taking “Much Needed Timeout” From Dark Funeral

Dark Funeral drummer Nils “Dominator” Fjellström will be taking “a much needed timeout from the band to handle personal matters.” The group have recruited a replacement called Jalomaah, who can be seen performing “The Arrival of Satan’s Empire” in the below video:

Dark Funeral commented:

“We must sadly inform you that we have agreed to let Nils “Dominator” Fjellstroem take a much needed timeout from the band to handle personal matters. We of course wish him the best!

Yet the world keeps turning and so DARK FUNERAL will stride on. We have hired an extremely talented drummer that will fill in Nils position until further notice. He will make his live debut with us today, friday Nov 10, at Aalborg Metal Festival in Denmark. Here’s a video clip showing “Jalomaah” when he is rehearsing one of our songs “The Arrival of Satan’s Empire”. Impressive to say the least!

All scheduled shows and tours will take place as planned! Stay tuned for further announcements!

2018 will be an epic year as we have two celebrations to make, our classic album “Vobiscum Satanas” turns 20 years old and DARK FUNERAL celebrate 25 years as a band.

More news to follow, stay tuned!”

Lord Ahriman said the following:

“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!”

They posted the following about their new additions via Facebook:

“After launching their brand-new song “Nail Them To The Cross” some days ago, Swedish black metal legends DARK FUNERAL now introduce their new frontman Heljarmadr and bassist Natt:

Heljarmadr – Vocals

With roots in the second half of the 90’s black metal scene and with tentacles in bands such as highly respected Grá, Domgård and Cursed 13 comes a raw force from the underground.

Known as a fierce frontman, both on stage and on recordings with his previous bands, he will now step up and claim a seat in the throne room of DARK FUNERAL to inflict deep scars and infect wounds in the black metal scene. The name Heljarmadr derives from the old Scandinavian languages, simply meaning “a man belonging to hell”.

With long time experience in the arts of creating dark satanic music, he will play a key role in shaping the future vocal and lyrical direction of DARK FUNERAL. Expect nothing but excellence, pure darkness and uncompromising evil!

Natt – Bass

Treading into this world, Natt has always had a strong, deep interest in music and the arts of the great unknown.

Spending time during the nights, exploring the Swedish ancient forests, avoiding the common mass that wanders this simplistic world, made his relations and visions to that which lies beyond, stronger.

Before DARK FUNERAL, Natt was a member of the black/thrash metal band Angrepp where he met his now close friends Adrian Lawson (Angrepp, IXXI) and Fredrik Widigs (The Ugly, Marduk) and later on joined the deeply devoted Black Metal act, Withershin.”

Natt: “Since the beginning of my time, here, in this world, there has always been, a strong connection,
towards the isolated parts of the soul, a connection within and beyond.
A connection to what can not be seen, nor heard.
To everything and nothing.
To what is, and what is not, and that which lies between.
Outside the borders of this life.
Beyond, yet within the acausal flame, in the night, I dwell, beyond the broken circle, outside of the causal mundane, yet not.”

“With these new members joining the band’s ranks, DARK FUNERAL open the gates to a new chapter of furious, intense and merciless black metal.”
