DARK FUNERAL "Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus" [12" LP, Black Vinyl, Gatefold]
2009 - Black Metal from Sweden
Originally released in the autumn of 2009, of DARK FUNERAL's fifth album, Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus, completes something of a trilogy with the predecessors Diabolis Interium (2001) and Attera Totus Sanctus (2005), in that they all featured the band's fastest and fiercest work yet along with suitably fiery cover artwork. However, that's not to say that Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus merely repeated past glories; in fact, DARK FUNERAL here exhibited a relatively adventurous grasp of dynamics to suit the more melancholic & romantic themes being explored here. More than that, some 15-plus years after their formation, their power and passion had not lessened one bit. Sadly, Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus was to be the final recorded performance of founding vocalist Emperor Magus Caligula. At long last, OSMOSE will do DARK FUNERAL's back catalog justice with the first of many reissues. This version of Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus will faithfully reproduce the original, now finally available on vinyl for the first time in nearly a decade.
