Biography

Norrköping, Sweden (1990 – present)

Marduk is a Swedish band. Marduk’s predominant lyrical topics are Satanism, anti-Christianity, death, war and the Third Reich. The latter is an addition to their lyrical-conceptual themes stemming from their 1999 release Panzer Division Marduk; it quickly grew among their fans’ favorites and so far Marduk have released more and more songs relating to that dark but fascinating chapter of human history such as “The Hangman of Prague” (monicker of Prague “Reichsprotektor”, and, by the Way, Leader of the “Sicherheitsdienst”, Reinhard Heydrich), “Deathmarch” and others.

Marduk was founded in Norrköping, Sweden in 1990 by Morgan Steinmeyer Håkansson. His ultimate goal was to create the most blasphemous and Satanic band ever conceptualized.

In 1991, Marduk released a three song demo entitled “Fuck Me Jesus”, which due to its dark and irreverent lyrics was highly received by a cult following.
During 1992, Marduk released their first full-length album “Dark Endless” under the label No Fashion and continued to tour Sweden, augmenting their steadily growing fan base. Marduk switched over to the French label Osmose in 1993 after a dispute with No Fashion. Marduk began to tour throughout the rest of Europe in 1994 and in 1995 had their first gig across the Atlantic in Mexico City. They continued to amass fans and release albums over the next few years, even spearheading the European “Black Metal Assault Tour” in 1998.

In 2000, Marduk founded their own record label, Blooddawn Productions.

    When it's at the expensive of atmosphere it's not a good thing. Hatebreed are "violent" but that doesn't make them great

    'Those of the Unlight' is by *far* the best thing they ever did.

    versionfiv: certainly, I was too optimistic in my afirmation. Those of the Unlught is still not part of that following crap they did in their carrer, but I can't find it as original and interesting as Dark Endless.

    Dark Endless is a good Death Metal album, but everything else is product of mental confusion... simply boring and monotonous full-speed crap, no variety, no originality.

    " it's just a shame they decided to go only for ultraviolence since Panzer Division," plague angel, rom 512 and wormwood are half / half slow / fast songs... literally one fast song then one slow one, that was how those albums tracklists were laid out. on serpent sermon it's not really like that but there's still some midtempo songs, much like those of the unlight. they definitely mellowed out a lot after Legion left. i'm pretty sure world funeral also has a lot of slow songs, i don't remember much how that album sounds but i've heard the live versions of songs from that album and Bleached Bones is slow tempo

    Fuck me Jesus (eventually), Those of the Unlight and Opus Nocturne are the only really good albums they put out. The rest goes from garbage to correct, it's just a shame they decided to go only for ultraviolence since Panzer Division, and it's far from being scary compared to many other BM bands. Blasphemy anyone ?
