A video recently surfaced of Marduk vocalist Daniel "Mortuus" Rosten slamming a fan who got on stage on their December 6th in San Francisco's DNA Lounge. Put in context of the recent attempt of a fan to light a bible on fire and subsequent pepper spraying incident, perhaps this is a reasonable overreaction. The incident occurs around the 1:16 mark and you can also see a blonde guy in front of center monitor passes out at the 4:50 mark in the video below.

The Gauntlet reports that fans at a Marduk show were pepper-sprayed by an overzealous security guard at Royal Hall in Los Angeles. Halfway through Marduk's set, a fan began trying to set a bible on fire inside the club. When venue security was alerted, they pepper-sprayed the fan. As everyone knows, the tiny spray droplets from the spray spread out, and more than just the intended target were hit. Soon after, Marduk left the stage, and the choking fans exited the area for about ten minutes while the venue cleared out. Marduk later re-took the stage, but the band was not happy with security for the way things were handled.
