Swedish black metal icons Dark Funeral are celebrating three decades of blasphemy with a reworked version of their debut album. “Dark Funeral (30th Anniversary Edition)” is due on August 9 via Century Media Records and has been remixed by David Castillo and re-mastered once again by Thomas “Plec” Johansson.

To celebrate the release and to give fans a taste of the new sonics, the band is now sharing the first re-recorded single, “Open the Gates,” along with a visualizer. The clip, which was created by 12 Inch Media, can be watched below.

Dark Funeral guitarist and original member Lord Ahriman comments: “In January 1994, Blackmoon (RIP) and I put our entire income and savings into a recording session and pressing 1,000 copies of our 4-track debut Mini-CD. A Mini-CD we released ourselves too. To now reach the significant milestone with an epic 30th anniversary is of course very honorable for me & the band. Three decades of Swedish Black Metal filled with precious memories. It is now time for us to reflect on what started it all, a 30-year epic journey, filled with experiences and an unbreakable bond. And in this honor, we have breathed new life into these legendary songs & given them an honest but modern update. Enjoy!“
