MARDUK - Opus Nocturne (12" Gatefold DLP on Black Vinyl)
Sweden | Black
Vinyl LP re-issue on black vinyl in a gatefold cover. Exclusive U.S. distribution through Hells Headbangers mailorder.
An unswerving commitment to blasphemy and extremity combined with a relentless touring schedule and a steady stream of recordings has helped establish Sweden's Marduk as one of the better-known bands on the Scandinavian black metal scene. They began as more of a standard death metal band with a black metal influence, but have come to be known for their style of extreme black metal, which tends to focus on themes of warfare and anti-Christian sentiment and is characterized by relentlessly fast drumming and blurred walls of guitar.
