Dark Funeral: De Profundis Clamavi Ad Te Domine

Dark Funeral: De Profundis Clamavi Ad Te DomineCD, Regain Records 2004

Track list: Intro - The Arrival of Satan's Empire - An Apprentice of Satan - The Dawn No More Rises - Thy Legions Come - Hail Murder - Goddess of Sodomy - The Secrets of the Black Arts - Vobiscum Satanas - Shadows Over Transylvania - Open the Gates - Ineffable Kings of Darkness - Thus I Have Spoken - My Dark Desires - Armageddon Finally Comes

The Dark Funeral live album features songs mostly from their latest album, Diabolis Interium. That's all good and well, because it's a very good album. Other two albums are represented by three songs both; I suppose the songs selected are the best tracks from each. However, the album offers rather little, especially if you have Diabolis Interium already. The fact that it's live means the sound quality is bad and as the probably awesome live show doesn't come through the album, the result is rather bad. I'd rather listen to the studio versions. **

Live albums are useless. They are just bad quality versions of the real thing anyway. At least here is one review that doesn't give the standard 8/10 review

Hey, congratulations. I have known a lot of good bands through this blog.

But, I totally disagree with this review. The sound quality is perfect. Have you listened to Cannibal Corpse - Live Cannibalism? Deicide - When London Burns? So, this Dark Funeral live is in best quality than these.

Its 100% recommended. Check Dark Funeral site and download samples.

"de profundis" etc.= "from the depths, I have called to you, Lord." It's been a popular text for composers--Josquin Desprez's version is esp. interesting.
