05. Millennium of Revenge/Jerusalem In Ashes
06. The Death Empire on Burial Ground Pt. I
07. The Death Empire on Burial Ground Pt. II
08. When Moonshine Is the Only Light
09. Schmerz Aus Licht
10. Futurum Obscurius...

Four MP3s (edits of 2:00-3:30 length) have been made available through the following links:
"Mountains Ov Might" was recorded for the upcoming "Epimythion - A Tribute To Immortal" album which is going to be released through the Greek label Townsend Avalanche in March 2006 and will feature, among others, SUNN O))), BLOOD TSUNAMI, VREID and WRATHAGE. "Schmerz Aus Licht", which was originally meant for the cancelled split album with KÄLTETOD, will be released as a mini-CD through the German label K:A:IN Productions. In good tradition, this mini-CD will come in special packaging. The playing time will be more than 16 minutes, as "Schmerz Aus Licht" has probably become the slowest and most depressive song the band has ever written.
Eight of the remaining songs (playing time approx. 43 minutes) will make up the forthcoming debut album of FUNERAL PROCESSION. For the time being, it is not clear which label is going to release that album as negotiations are underway for the CD and the LP version. It is very likely that the vinyl version will be released by or in cooperation with Nightfog Productions, who also released the vinyl version of "Legion Cymru" earlier in 2005. A label for a possible tape-release (preferably not in Europe) is still being sought.
Speaking of "Legion Cymru", after the MCD boxset sold out very fast, the limited vinyl version and the MC version are close to having sold out as well. Final copies are available from the band, Nightfog Productions and Intolerant Rekords. This might be the last chance to get hold of the release. Meanwhile, the "Solar Eclipse" demo is completely sold out from the label (Devil Worship Records) as well.
