In just four weeks time, arguably the “most metal” (whatever that means) of the UK summer festival season takes place: Bloodstock Open Air. To get ourselves in the mood for a weekend of wearing denim vests and drinking mead out of horn, we’ve put together a gigantic Sunday Spotify Slaylist, featuring the best of this year’s line-up.
Dark Funeral is a black metal band from Stockholm, Sweden, founded by guitarists Blackmoon and Lord Ahriman in 1993. They are one of the bands to have emerged in Sweden during the Second wave of black metal.
Their lyrical themes have traditionally pertained to Satanism and anti-Christianity. Certain past and present members including Blackmoon, Ahriman, Caligula and Chaq Mol have each declared an affinity for Satanism, with Ahriman and Caligula notably being practitioners of LaVeyan Satanism.

Dark Funeral on Thrash Hits
November 7th, 2012
There you go – yet another festival announcement, and yet another headline that pretty much tells the entire story. Lamb of God will be headlining the Saturday night of Bloodstock Open Air 2013, in what’s being billed as their only UK of next year.
Also added to the bill today were Dark Funeral and Amorphis. These three new additions join the previously announced King Diamond, Anthrax, Fozzy, Firewind and Accept over on the bill over at Catton Hall, which in 2013 takes place on the weekend of 08-11 August. Early Bird Weekend Tickets are on sale now for the bargain price of £100, so if you want to save a few quid for one of the many, many beers you can buy at Bloodstock, now would be a good time to cough up some cash.
