Funeral Mist is a black metal band formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1993.

Biography

The band in its original form comprised vocalist and guitarist Typhos (a.k.a. Henrik Ekeroth), guitarist Vintras and drummer Velion. Bass player Arioch was added somewhat later.

Their debut gig took place in 1995 and that same year saw the issuing of their first demo entitled Darkness. The band’s line-up also started to change during this year, as drummer Velion was fired and Necromorbus (Tore Stjerna) took his role. The second demo Havoc followed in 1996, the same year that the band also lost guitarist Typhos to the Swedish band Dark Funeral. Songs that were written for Arioch’s side project, Winds, were used on this demo.

In 1997, Vintras also left the band due to personal differences, and Funeral Mist was now down to only a duo consisting of Arioch and Necromorbus. The debut EP Devilry was released in 1998 and was issued in both CD and vinyl format. The vinyl edition was limited to only 300 copies and featured an exclusive track, Hellspell 2. This track was later included on the 2005 Devilry/Havoc compilation album. After this release that same year, guitarist Nachash was added to the band. Their first full-length album, Salvation, was released on the Norma Evangelium Diaboli label in 2003, while the second album, entitled Maranatha, was released in February 2009 on the same label, after 6 years of silence.

    Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
