Marduk Reissuing Two Albums

Century Media Records is proud to announce reissues of the Marduk albums "La Grande Danse Macabre" (2001) and "World Funeral" (2003), both set for release on June 23rd, 2014 in Europe and June 24th in the US.

Both albums have been out of print for quite a while and will now be released in revamped editions featuring new covers by Maelstrom (vocalist in label mates & Marduk-related act Death Wolf), liner notes, rare photos from the band's archive, and bonus tracks on the CDs / digital albums. Both titles were also remastered by Marduk bassist Devo Andersson. The band comments:

"La Grande Danse Macabre and World Funeral are once again being made available. Since Marduk ended their cooperation with Regain Records, who later went defunct, these titles among others haven't been officially available for quite a while. So, Blooddawn Productions worked closely with its partner Century Media Records to bring back these essential Marduk albums.

"Reinforced and reinvented visually, expanded with liner notes and some rare photos from the band's archive, La Grande Danse Macabre and World Funeral will be unleashed upon mankind again as limited edition vinyl and mid-price CD and digital album. So, make sure you'll get your copy and complete your Marduk arsenal! Enjoy the darkness..." More...

"We did everything in our hands to avoid this situation but at the end it was impossible to keep going with this project for now.

Exumer To Play Rock Hard Festival

German thrashers Exumer have been confirmed to appear at this year's Rock Hard Festival in Milan, Italy on September 15th, 2012. Also on the bill for the festival are Danish thrashers Artillery, who have just come off the co-headlining "South American Damnation" tour with Exumer through Argentina, Chile and Brazil.

Exumer's management is now working on on a European installment of the Exumer/Artillery package and are planning additional dates with both bands throughout Europe in September/October 2012.

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: "Our 'South American Damnation' tour was such a success for both bands, us and Artillery, that we did not hesitate to ask our management to replicate the package for Europe. This means that we have to put our North American dates, which were planned for the fall, on hold until spring 2013. There were no alternate time frames to bring both bands back out on the road and we didn't want to risk losing the opportunity altogether to bring the package to Europe."

The line-up for the Rock Hard Festival Italia 2012 features among others Marduk (SE), Bulldozer (IT), Artillery (DK), Exumer (DE), and Immolation (US). More...

Marduk Show Shut Down For "Preaching Satanism"

Marduk has issued the following statement about having the band's appearance in Minsk, Belarus cancelled due to the band being "an affront to Christian values:"

"The Prosecutor General’s Office has banned Swedish black metal band Marduk from playing a show in Minsk, Belarus.

"Pavel Radzivonaw, a departmental head at the Prosecutor General’s Office, told reporters on Monday that Marduk’s concert, scheduled for May 22, would not take place. 'The band preaches Satanism, which has nothing to do with art,' he says. 'This is an affront to Christian values, they preach the ideas of death, of the Third Reich.'

"The other bands that were scheduled to appear with Marduk at the Re:Public club — including Kataklysm and Vader — will be allowed to perform. Radzivonaw warned the show may be stopped if the performances involve violations of laws.

"I wonder who's really pushing for the Third Reich ideas here..."

You can also read the original news story reporting the issue at Naviny.by. In other Marduk news, the band will be releasing new album "Serpent Sermon" on June 5th in North America and in Europe on May 28th, 2012. Check out the recently posted music video of "Souls For Belial" at this location.

Forgotten Tomb Confirmed For Extremefest 2012

Extremefest 2012 will take place in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland on the following dates:

5. July 2012 - 7. July 2012 DE – Hünxe, ExtremeFest Germany
5. July 2012 - 7. July 2012 AT – Salzburg, ExtremeFest Austria
5. July 2012 – 7. July 2012 CH – Pratteln, ExtremeFest Switzerland

The organizers of Extremefest have now issued the following announcement about confirming Forgotten Tomb and Ultrawurscht:

"Forgotten Tomb been around since 1999 and the Italians have caused quite a stir in the black and dark metal underground! 'Songs To Leave' (2002) or 'Love`s Burial Ground' (2004) are rightfully considered milestones of melancholic dark metal that the fourpiece infuses with doom and black metal elements. In 2011, Forgotten Tomb released their most recent effort 'Under Saturn Retrograde' and fans can look forward to one of the rare appearances of the Italians at the Austrian and German editions of Extremefest!

"It´s all about the sausage with Bavarian / Austrian act Ultrawurscht! Their highly explosive mixture of death metal, grind and hardcore – or simply 'Wurschtcore' – will one day conquer the world, and if you had the chance to check out albums such as 'Cheese Ass Built My Hot Dog' you`ll agree! Mixing metal and sausages should be declared a form of art anyway, so slap some wieners on the grill before checking out Ultrawurscht`s exclusive set at the Austrian edition of the Extremefest 2012!"

So far these bands have been confirmed to play Extremefest 2012: More...
