MARDUK - La Grande Danse Macabre (12" LP on Purple Vinyl)
Sweden | Black
After being out of print on vinyl for quite a while, MARDUK and Century Media joined forces for a reissue of the stunning 'La Grande Danse Macabre' album (2001), which presents a more varied and darker approach compared to the Swedish black metal titans' usual blastbeat-driven full on assault. Created in close cooperation with the band, this re-release features remastered sound (done by bassist Devo Andersson), detailed liner notes, unpublished photos, revamped artwork by Death Wolf vocalist Maelstrom and bonus material on the CD version: a cover version of 'Samhain' (originally by pre-DANZIG punk outfit SAMHAIN) and all three tracks from the 'Obedience' EP (2000). Expect nothing but perfect extreme black metal pleasure!
