The Funeral Orchestra is a Swedish funeral doom metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. Formed in 2002, the band is known for wearing masks and robes during concerts to protect their identity and the members are only called Priests and never revealed their real names with the exception of guitarist-vocalist Priest I, whose real name is Leif Nicklas Rudolfsson.

The band has released three studio albums, three demos, one extended play, two splits and two singles. Their third studio album, Negative Evocation Rites, was scheduled for release on June 30, 2020, but was released a month earlier than expected.
