Angelus Exuro pro Eternus (grammatically incorrect Latin intended to mean "Angels Burned for Eternity") is the fifth studio album by Swedish black metal band Dark Funeral.[4] The album was officially released on November 18, 2009, via Regain Records. It was recorded at The Abyss Studio in Grangärde, Sweden, with engineer and producer Peter Tägtgren, who also produced Dark Funeral's earlier studio albums (with the exception of Attera Totus Sanctus).[4] The record was then mastered by Jonas Kjellgren at the Black Lodge Studios. Angelus Exuro pro Eternus is the last album to feature vocalist Emperor Magus Caligula, the only album to feature bassist B-Force and the first to feature Dominator on drums.

Musically, it has been described as the band's most technical and varied album to date, with considerably more progression and innovation while remaining "true to its roots".[citation needed] The cover artwork for Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus was created by Daniel "Morbid" Valeriani.[5]

Video material[edit]

The album is also available with a bonus live DVD, which contains approximately 55 minutes of previously unreleased material. The DVD was professionally filmed with 6 cameras during the band's highly acclaimed 15th anniversary special show during the Peace & Love festival in Borlänge, Sweden, on June 28, 2008. The album also includes two versions (censored and uncensored) of their video for the track "My Funeral". The video was shot over the August 21–23 weekend and was released on October 4, 2009.[4]

On October 7, 2009, three days later after the initial air of the video, after nearly 30,000 views, the full and uncensored version of "My Funeral" had been pulled from Myspace, causing a backlash from fans. This forced the band to upload a censored version of the video in response.
