NEGATOR och DARK FUNERAL är två band där det händer mycket nu och händelserna har med varandra att göra.
NEGATOR arbetar med uppföljaren till den ganska hyllade "Panzer Metal" och i DARK FUNERAL arbetar Lord Ahriman för att hitta nya medlemmar då bandet sedan förra hösten saknar främst sångare.
Genom att NEGATORs sångare Nachtgarm nu är klar som ny medlem i DARK FUNERAL är de båda bandens framtid tätt sammankopplade.
Lord Ahriman: "I think I can speak for everyone in the band and say that besides completely knocking us down with the strength of his vocals and wide register, what truly blew us away was his presence, energy and the amazing spirit he showed during the final audition. He just came into the rehearsal room, found and took his rightful spot. And then just set the whole place on hellfire! It's really hard to explain 'that' certain feeling one is looking for, but once you get it, you just know that you've found the right man for the job."
Nachtgarm: "To me, DARK FUNERAL is the epitome of black metal. To be a member of this institution now, is not only a big honor for me, but is also complementing my work as a lead singer as well as my action at the front of the stage throughout the years. Consequently, I am very glad that DARK FUNERAL put their unholy faith in me and my abilities. As the successor of Emperor Magus Caligula, I am quite aware of the high expectations being directed to my person. However, I can assure every one of you out there, that with every breath I take I will live up to these expectations. Hands down. This is the arrival of Satan’s Empire. Now let us set this world aflame!"
Risken är väl att NEGATOR blir andra prioritet för Nachtgarm men bandet låter hälsa att:
"It is with great excitement that we recently learned that our vocalist, Nachtgarm, is from now joining our black metal comrades DARK FUNERAL as a permanent member. There he is also in charge of what he is best at: Confronting the world, breathing fire and brimstone and simply hooting down everything around. However, to get one thing clear right away: NEGATOR will, of course, continue the successful path we have taken. Nachtgarm will, of course, lead our battalion further on and will remain the singer of NEGATOR. An assumed double burden is simply non-existent. Consequently, we can assure every single one of you that all confirmed festival shows (With Full Force, Eisenwahn Festival, Wacken Open Air) will happen just as planned. Furthermore, the work concerning the successor of 'Panzer Metal' will continue with great enthusiasm and relentless diligence. That Nachtgarm is now among the ranks of one of black metal's most influential bands of all times is also complementing his work with NEGATOR. Therefore, we are proud that we with our work as NEGATOR were able to contribute and have a part in this.
