Marduk -- Need I Say More??
I saw Marduk live several years ago, and they didn't make a strong impression on me. But they went on right after my favorite band, and it was nearly midnight when they went on. I've heard many people praise them, so, I decided to give them another listen. I dunno what was wrong with me! Must have been the ringing in my ears, because they are fantastic! They've apparently been around since the early 90's, which is a feat in itself. I checked out a few songs from each decade to get a full picture of their past and current sound. Their music in that time has stayed true to their Swedish black metal roots, while remaining original, quality, headbanging, brutal, fuckin' metal. If you haven't listened to Marduk, definitely do it! ~Gangis
