The effort was recorded at the Dugout Studios in Uppsala, Sweden and was produced by guitarist Lord Ahriman and Daniel Bergstrand (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, BEHEMOTH).

Comments DARK FUNERAL vocalist Heljarmadr: "The lyrics to 'Where Shadows Forever Reign' deal with self-sacrifice. To reach further on my spiritual path, I must give something from myself. Be it material or a piece of my heart and soul, as long as it's something that deeply matters. To truly reach the world of shadows I must summon my inner shadows, my inner darkness and allow no light."
DARK FUNERAL in 2014 announced the addition of frontman Heljarmadr and bassist Natt to the group's ranks.
With roots in the second half of the '90s black metal scene and with tentacles in bands such as highly respected GRÁ, DOMGÅRD and CURSED 13 comes Heljarmadr, a raw force from the underground. Known as a fierce frontman, both on stage and on recordings with his previous bands, he has now stepped up and claimed a seat in the throne room of DARK FUNERAL to inflict deep scars and infect wounds in the black metal scene. The name Heljarmadr derives from the old Scandinavian languages, simply meaning "a man belonging to hell." With a lot of experience in the arts of creating dark satanic music, he is playing a key role in shaping the future vocal and lyrical direction of DARK FUNERAL.
Before DARK FUNERAL, Natt was a member of the black/thrash metal band ANGREPP where he met his now-close friends Adrian Lawson (ANGREPP, IXXI) and Fredrik Widigs (THE UGLY, MARDUK) and later on joined the deeply devoted black metal act WITHERSHIN.
