Swedish black metal masters DARK FUNERAL have parted ways with drummer Nils "Dominator" Fjellström.Lord Ahriman comments: "We must sadly inform you that we have agreed to let Nils 'Dominator' Fjellström 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's position until further notice. 'Jalomaah' will make his live debut with us today, Friday 10 November, at Aalborg Metal Festival in Denmark. "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!" DARK FUNERAL's latest album, "Where Shadows Forever Reign", was released in June 2016 via Century Media. The effort was recorded at the Dugout Studios in Uppsala, Sweden and was produced by guitarist Lord Ahriman and Daniel Bergstrand (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, BEHEMOTH). The stunning artwork was created by Necrolord (DISSECTION, NECROPHOBIC, EMPEROR). DARK FUNERAL in 2014 announced the addition of frontman Heljarmadr and bassist Natt to the group's ranks.
