In The Temple Of Decay: MARDUK Streaming New Album In Full

Considering that Marduk released their new album Serpent Sermon yesterday via Century Media Records, I guess I should point out that the album has been streaming in it’s entirety over at CVLT Nation since Friday. I don’t know why I haven’t posted about this stream yet, for some reason it just kept slipping past me. I suppose this is also appropriate since on Monday, Marduk‘s guitarist Morgan Steinmeyer Håkansson announced something that has been debated for the last two decades: he has skull fragments, pieces of brain and pieces of lead from the shotgun shell that Mayhem‘s former vocalist used to take his own life.

It was said that Mayhem‘s gutiarist Euronymous had collected pieces of Dead (born Per Ohlin) after his suicide and sent pieces to black metal musicians who he felt were worthy, those who truly honed the craft. No other names have been reported, but you can read the full piece here. And while you’re reading, go stream or buy Marduk’s new album Serpents Sermon.

Souls For Belial: MARDUK Releases New Music Video

Love me some Marduk. I am really looking forward to listening to their new album Serpent Sermon in full. The songs that have been released thus far are fantastic and the recently released music video for “Souls For Belial” is awesome as well. I think what I like most about this video is the sepia tone that the entire video is soaked in. The video is pretty standard, but the execution is killer. I love it. Check it out below and enjoy. Serpent Sermon will be released on May 28th via Century Media Records.

From The Ashes Of Belial: MARDUK Release New Track

I have no idea why I haven’t posted about Marduk in a while. I mean, I know they have  a new album coming out soon titled Serpent Sermon and this is the second track they have released off of said album. The first track “M.A.M.M.O.N.” was fucking amazing and “Souls For Belial” is no different. So stop whatever it is you are doing and check out this new bitchin’ black metal attack here. You can also check out “M.A.M.M.O.N.” in the player below. Enjoy. Serpent Sermon is due out on June 5th via Century Media Records.

Marduk is the Reason for the Season

I don’t often speak highly of the mainstream media. I find their bias towards people in positions of power to be disingenuous at best and deadly at worst. However, today I came across this gem from Eric Zorn in my local paper, the Chicago Tribune entitled, “Try Not to Forget the Real Reason for the Season.”

He laments the right-wing’s fallacious “War on Christmas”:

No secret there.  Civilizations all over the northern hemisphere have been making merry toward the end of December for thousands of years, with most of the celebrations linked somehow to the “return” of the sun — the longer periods of daylight that begin on the Winter Solstice December 21.

Which is why the triumphant, even defiant slogan “Jesus is the reason for the season” — seen this time of year on buttons, T-shirts and bumper stickers and heard from those who grouse that secular society is at war with Christmas— is so irritating.

A cynic with more energy than I have ought to create“Marduk is the reason for the season” banners in honor of the beloved Zagmuk story.

Read the whole post here. It’ll be a great conversation starter over the ham and mashed potatoes at Nana’s house Sunday.

I can’t speak for everyone on staff at American Aftermath, but as for Mr. Zorn’s thesis, I can’t imagine you’d see much disagreement on our end.
