Swedish black metallers DARK FUNERAL have announced the addition of bassist Zornheym to the group's ranks.
Commented guitarist Lord Ahriman: "Now, that we face our new lineup, I must say that the atmosphere and the chemistry within the band feels absolutely fantastic. Furthermore, every single member of DARK FUNERAL is once again sharing a tremendously strong commitment, an absolute dedication as well as utter professionalism. And I am absolutely sure that what you, our dear fans, soon will be able to witness that this unholy gathering of these five knights in Satans service is the most sinful and powerful DARK FUNERAL ever!
"We have rehearsed together for a few months already. And it feels like we are already tighter and sound much better than ever before. So once we kick off touring again, we will be like an infernal war machine that will crush everything in its path."
Added Zornheym: It is with great honor to be now part of this undefeatable armada of black metal warriors. When you join the truly ineffable kings of Swedish black metal it is beyond doubt that great excitement accompanies this unholy path of trampled souls. Onwards into Battle! The circle is closed!"
DARK FUNERAL recently recruited Nachtgarm (NEGATOR) as the band's new lead singer following the July 2010 departure of Magnus "Masse" Broberg (a.k.a. Emperor Magus Caligula).
DARK FUNERAL has been confirmed for next year's edition of the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise, which will set sail from Miami, Florida to Cayman Islands on January 23, 2012 and return four days later. A total of 40 acts will perform on the cruise.
