ZONARIA and CARACH ANGREN have been confirmed as the support acts for DARK FUNERAL's upcoming European tour. On the U.K. leg of the trek, AKERCOCKE will also appear. Another band that will participate in the entire tour will be announced shortly.
Commented DARK FUNERAL guitarist Lord Ahriman: "I can't wait to hit the road throughout Europe again. It feels like ages ago since we last toured here (2005/2006). And to make up for this rather long absence from our European fans, to support and celebrate the release of our latest masterpiece, 'Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus', we are going to bring out and offer you our biggest and most professional production yet! And as you perhaps can tell, I'm really excited about this. This will be insane! I'm also glad we have managed to put together a truly strong and musically interesting bill for this tour. And I am totally convinced that this will be a killer tour in all aspects. So raise those metal horns high. And we will see you in March/April!!!

"Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus", the new album from DARK FUNERAL, will be released in North America on January 26 via Regain Records. The CD, which was made available in most European countries between November 18 and November 27, was recorded at Abyss Studio in Grangärde, Sweden with famed engineer and legendary producer Peter Tägtgren (PAIN, HYPOCRISY). Nine songs are featured on the effort, which is being described in a press release as "the band's most technical and varied album to date. And while still being true to their roots, they have taken a great step forward in the evolution of their brand of fine Swedish black metal. 'Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus' is, from the very beginning to the end, a hell ride you simply don't want to miss!"
The "Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus" cover artwork was created by Morbid (Daniel Valeriani).
"Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus" was released in a couple of different formats, including a two-disc limited edition containing one CD and one live DVD. The bonus live DVD features approximately 55 minutes of previously unreleased material professionally filmed with six cameras during the band's 15th anniversary show at the Peace & Love festival on June 28, 2008 in Borlänge, Sweden. The album will also include two versions (soft and hardcore) of the band's brand new video, "My Funeral".
