Dark Funeral (SWE) – Diabolis Interium ORANGE DLP
Originally released in the autumn of 2001 on the pivotal No Fashion label, DARK FUNERAL’s third album, Diabolis Interium, arguably brought the band to their biggest audiences yet. The album’s release was followed by wealth of touring across both Europe and the United States, the latter still a rarity back then for Scandinavian black metal bands. Indeed, with the razor-sharp execution across Diabolis Interium, DARK FUNERAL were perfect ambassadors for the sound, and for Swedish black metal in general: many bands had come and gone over the ‘90s, but there they stood, sticking to their guns – and spiked gauntlets. Nothing could extinguish this inferno!
At long last, OSMOSE will do DARK FUNERAL’s back catalog justice with the first of many reissues. This version of Diabolis Interium will faithfully reproduce the original. Include 4 cover tracks (King Diamond, Sodom, Slayer, & Mayhem) and 3 live tracks (from South American 2003).
