Marduk has issued the following update about postponing the previously announced Central America shows due to travel issues:
"Because of misinformation from one of the airlines involed in Marduks travel to Central America the band got uphold and couldnt get on the connection flight. It was totaly the fault of the airline. Marduk had just completed one of the planned three flights to Costa Rica when the problem occured. There was no time to book new flights to make it in time to do the 3 shows.
"The band and booking agency are currently checking options to rebook the shows as soon as possible. Marduk feels very unfortunate for the situation as the band is eager and burning with devotion to march across Central America. More news to be posted as soon as possible."
The Catholic Church of Costa Rica has criticised the Swedish black metal outfit Marduk for their use of blasphemy and religious iconography. Marduk are scheduled to perform in Costa Rica at the Pepper Disco on July 29th, which will be the band's first concert in the country in seven years.
Mario Segura, Catholic priest and spokesperson for the Curia Metropolitana, said "they should have more respect because they are sacred things", referring to the band's use of religious articles, like an inverted cross in its album cover art. Segura said he considers that this type of music and message cannot encourage any good in Costa Rica's youth.

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.
