Record of the week: MARDUK – Dark Endless


Review from Petrified zine #2 (1993)

Swedish black/death – and some extremely violent shit! This band is another member of the Norwegian Inner Circle (based in Sweden), and play totally dark music like all the other members.. (Other Inner Circle members in Sweden include Dissection and Abruptum). Members of this band play for the godly death metal band DARKIFIED (which also has ex-Abruptum members). Eight tracks of ultra aggressive destruction. Outstanding tracks include “Still Dead”, “Sun Turns Black as Night”, and “Holy Inquisition.” They have just released a new full-length on Omose Productions entitled “Those of the Unlight.” (I should have it on this issue, but there were printing problems with the first batch.)
