Black Funeral - Vampyr Throne of the Beast (1996)

Formed in 1993, a slight and fine time before the emergence and commercialization of most trend seeking second wave bands. Black Funeral have released several demos, both in 1994 and 1995, of raw Black Metal in the style of Demoncy. It is only in 1996, after the release of the full-length album Vampyr - Throne of the Beast, that Black Funeral imprinted it's own primitive and icy chill of nihilism and darkness.

The later work of Black Funeral is based on the same raw and primitive composition, yet it often lacks the nihilistic vision of Vampyr.
