Given that Marduk’s 2009 album Wormwood rewired my brain, and that 2012′s Serpent Sermon could shout down the roar of my huge lawnmower, and that between those came a killer, kinda disturbing EP, we can be super excited about the next Marduk outing. And according to a band post last week, its creation is now underway and its title is Frontschwein. According to the internet, that’s “an amusing, ironic, or derogatory term for a simple on the front fighting soldiers,” but also an honorable thing to call a veteran soldier. Rad.
Glancing at its “expected” release date — January – we might expect another EP, but the language in the announcement is “album,” which implies full length. Sorry if that was an obvious thing to write. It’s early.
