Michael W. Ford
Michael Ford is an American musician and occult author who began his career in 1991 with the black metal band Abaddon (renamed Sorath a year later). Whilst in Sorath, Ford made his first attempts at more experimental music with Darkness Enshroud
, first aided by Rahu (Dan Ferguson) and later by Shanna LeJeune
. Another experimental avenue was explored with the death industrial project Valefor
, whilst black metal would never leave his attention for long and has been pursued under the guise of Black Funeral
which Ford originally formed in 1993.
