Sunday Old School: BMHM Part 3 - Marduk

Black Metal History Month has returned for a fourth installment! This year will see our special time analyze some of the roots of the genre, as well as some of the bleakest and obscene bands to fly the flag of darkness.

Sweden is perhaps best known in the extreme music world for their contribution to death metal, having been the birthplace of such bands as In Flames, Entombed, At The Gates and Katatonia, but they have also made a good contribution to black metal, perhaps most notably thanks to Bathory, one of the earliest influences on the genre. However, one of the more controversial names in the field (which is saying something when talking black metal, believe me) would be a band from the city of Norrköping which go by the name of Marduk.

Marduk was formed by guitarist Morgan Steinmeyer Håkansson, with the intention of creating the most blasphemous and offensive band in the world. They began by fusing death metal with black to create a very extreme sound. They unleashed their sound in 1991 with the release of the demo, "Fuck Me Jesus," before releasing their first full length album, "Dark Endless" the next year. It was well received and the band took to the road to perform across Sweden, expanding their fan base along the way. More...

Headline News

Marduk Will Not Be Joining Deicide On Tour

Yesterday it was announced that Marduk would be joining Deicide on tour with Carach Angren and Septicflesh, and a tour poster (available below) was released showing Marduk's name.

However Marduk has now stated the band was never confirmed for the tour and will not be appearing. The group's Facebook page was updated with this announcement:

"It has come to our attention that a tour with Deicide and Marduk has been announced. This was unfortunately an error, seeing as we already declined this offer. As to why this was broadcast in the first place we can but speculate, but most likely it’s a case of miscommunication." More...

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...
