DARK FUNERAL's New Songs 'Crushing Everything' In Their Path

DARK FUNERAL guitarist Lord Ahriman has posted the following studio update in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:

"Another amazingly good week has been completed at Dug-Out Studios. This week we have been working simultaneously on the three remaining songs planned for our new Satanic Symphony. On Thursday we managed to finish one of them, a hellish song in 270 bpm and full on blasting right through (excluding some short but powerful breaks etc.). The other two are written to a 60% / 30% and we hope to have them down by Tuesday/Wednesday this coming week. I have gotten some killer ideas over the weekend that I will try out first thing on Monday morning. And as soon as we have all songs down, we will begin to lay down the 'real' guitar tracks, can't fucken wait!

"Matte [Modin] has now laid down drums on 5 of the songs. And it sounds AMAZING!!! On this album he really gets a chance to show what an amazingly talented drummer he really is.

"Now with most of the songs written, we all begin to get a better picture of what the hell we're creating here. One of the most interesting things is perhaps that it will indeed be our most varied album thus far. And it feels like each song could carry a whole album by itself. Some of the songs are 'Total Darkness', crushing everything in its path, while others are a bit more melodic. Still I can assure you that you'll hear its DARK FUNERAL in the flesh!

"Compared to our previous albums, where we set one bpm for the whole album, we have this time given each song its own, varying somewhere between 260 – 280 bpm (might even end up on 300 bpm before we’re completely done with this album).

"[Emperor Magus] Caligula is currently busy writing lyrics for the new songs. And I hope to be able to give you some info about them next weekend.

"I know I've promised you photos, but we just haven't had time for it. However, we plan to shoot some this coming week. So next weekend you'll get some, OK. Until then..."
