Marduk
Plague Angel (Candlelight)

By: Mike SOS

War mongering Swedish troupe Marduk return with PLAGUE ANGEL, an 11-track display of this veteran outfit of black metal's wares. Blindingly fast drums pervade tracks like "Perish in Flames", while the slower, crushing "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" elicits a foreboding feeling much like the works of (bands undoubtedly influenced by them) Dimmu Borgir or Cradle of Filth. Sonically challenging, epically written, and above all, bitterly heavy, Marduk may only have one original member left in the fold, but the group's savage tenacity and innate ability to capture aural apocalypse catapults them head and shoulders above any number of their peers. PLAGUE ANGEL will not disappoint any fan that craves extreme metal.
