The Invisible Orange http://www.theinvisibleorange.com presents Swedish black metal marauders DARK FUNERAL http://www.darkfuneral.se February 15 at the Rickshaw Theatre.

Stockholm-based DARK FUNERAL brings to the stage their own breed of unadulterated, hellish black metal. Their music is describable in four words: fast, blasphemous and very fast. The melodies are very extensive and complex. Despite recent lineup changes, Dark Funeral is continuing to add to its lengthy discography and touring South and North America in 2011/2012.

With guests:

BELPHEGOR http://www.belphegor.at

BELPHEGOR have risen to icon status when it comes to supreme death / black metal art. Ever since their now legendary debut “The Last Supper” in 1995 mainman Helmuth and his henchmen have continuously worked all their way to the top with technical skill, sophisticated songwriting and highly blasphemous lyrics. After releasing “Walpurgis Rites – Hexenwahn” in 2009, BELPHEGOR are now back with their fourth masterpiece for Nuclear Blast Records: enter “Blood Magick Necromance”, an opus filled to the brim with dark and sinful anthems showing a band clearly at its career peak. The eight new compositions are simply the most brutal, elegant, epic and gripping material we`ve heard from BELPHEGOR so far.

ABIGAIL WILLIAMS http://www.myspace.com/abigailwilliams

Formed in 2005, symphonic black metalers Abigail Williams have been called "a buzz band," and "a band to watch." The band's 2006 Legend EP and 2008 debut, "In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns" (produced by James Murphy and featuring Emperor’s drummer Trym Torson) have now sold a combined 35,000 in the US. The band has toured exhaustively including their most recent West Coast headlining dates. "In the Absence of Light" was released last year on Candlelight Records.

GIGAN http://www.myspace.com/giganmusic

GIGAN has been challenging the mortal laws of extreme music and creativity since early 2006. Forged around the simple notion that the imagination should be art's only limit, GIGAN's style of creative delivery has simultaneously invoked reactions of amazement, disbelief, shock, awe and ultimately- respect. GIGAN has toured and shared the stage with Cattle Decapitation, Vital Remains, Misery Index, Psyopus, Lightning Swords of Death, Valdur, Book of Black Earth, SWWAATS, Threat Signal, Lecherous Nocturne, The Destro, Bleed The Sky, Enfold Darkness, Intronaut, Mouth of the Architect, Minsk, Zoroaster, Goatwhore and more. GIGAN is now touring in support of their 2011 release, "Quasi-Hallucinogenic Sonic Landscapes."

Dark Funeral (Black Metal)

DARK FUNERAL - "The ineffable Kings of Swedish Black Metal" - are without doubt one of the most notorius and highly regarded of the Black Metal genre. They epitomize the dark essence that is and always will be at the true heart of the European scene. 1993 was the year it all began, Lord Ahriman and Blackmoon [1993-1996] founded the infernal war ... more info

Abigail Williams (Metal/ Symphonic black metal)

In a glutted underworld of black metal, Abigail Williams may be just the band to spark some life and vibrancy back into the wavering genre. The group's second full album, In The Absence of Light, taps into the spirit of the band's chosen style but injects it with intricate touches of classic and thrash metal. Raw, but clear production and a venomou... more info

Inquisition (Black metal)

The band Inquisition was formed in 1988 in Cali, Colombia by Dagon. The band started as a thrash metal act, and in 1994 evolved into raw black metal. In 1996, Dagon left Colombia and moved back to the United States to continue Inquisition and search for a new drummer. That same year Dagon met Incubus, who joined the band on drums and the creatio... more info
