With the alliance of Lord Ahriman and Blackmoon in 1993, the Black Metal band Dark Funeral came into creation. Destined to become one of the largest and most influential groups of the genre, the band has produced numerous albums which never seem to meet negative fan response. Now with the lineup of Nachtgarm, Lord Ahriman, Zornheym, Dominator and Chaq Mol, the band embarked on their latest tour, this time with North America in their sights.
Although their last tour to the states was cancelled, their performance in Tempe, AZ a couple of days ago made the wait and anticipation worth it. The songs they played were all pulled from different eras of their discography, and every one of them were fan favorites. All of the bands accompanying Dark Funeral on tour made for an unstoppable force, and drew the attention of extreme metal fans everywhere.
