Dark Funeral: Reissue first six albums via Century Media Records from September on! Looking for new vocalist!
After recently signing to Century Media Records for their upcoming new studio album, DARK FUNERAL now present you a series of stunning reissues of their previous six albums which offer melodic yet blasting satanic hymns in absolute perfection and were created in close cooperation with the band. Furthermore, the band is currently looking for a new vocalist, as mastermind Lord Ahriman (guitar) points out:
"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 & some other old friends that were present at the time I formed the band contributed to this. Unfortunately, I could not finish off these re-issues 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.
We've just ended our festival season with a killer show at Germany's Summer Breeze festival. Now, my/our main focus will be to resume writing the next masterpiece, tentatively set for release in 2014. More news to come...
DARK FUNERAL is currently looking for a permanent new vocalist - preferable from Scandinavia. Serious applications can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org!"
The first batch of DARK FUNERAL reissues covers the self-titled MCD plus bonus material, "The Secrets Of The Black Arts" (incl. the remixed/remastered 8-track Unisound mix as bonus) and "Vobiscum Satanas" (which comes along with killer live tracks). These titles will be released in Europe on September 9, 2013 and November 12, 2013 in the US!
All albums will also be available on black vinyl and strictly limited transparent blue vinyl (only 100 copies!) via www.cmdistro.com!
