BLACK FUNERAL (USA/IN)


Black Funeral was previously known as Sorath. Formed in 1993 by industrial musician and occult/chaos magic author Michael Ford (aka Drakkheim Abaddon Nachttoter), Black Funeral was one of the first seminal cult black metal bands in America. Inspired by early Bathory, Von, Hellhammer, early Emperor, Darkthrone, Mayhem and Burzum, “Journey’s into Horizon’s Lost” was recorded and distributed everywhere possible. The recordings ugliness, bad production and extreme sound placed Black Funeral as one of the most chaotic black metal bands in the USA. Musically Black Funeral was a cold and raw mix of black and deathlike metal, always ugly and harsh. It was the intention of Black Funeral to oppose common perceptions of black metal from 1993-1996, to challenge and confront. Black Funeral released “Spells of Darkness and Death” as a limited demo in 1995, as well as releasing their debut cd “Vampyr – Throne of the Beast” on Fullmoon Productions of Florida.
