MARDUK TO JOIN BLACKENEDFEST 2009

Swedish black metal horde Marduk will set North America ablaze this spring on what will prove to be one of the most brutal tours of the year. Appropriately dubbed Blackenedfest, the band will pillage their way through 21 cities, beginning with The Fillmore in New York City on March 21st and closing at Les Foufounes Electriques in Montreal, with notorious Norwegian black metallers Mayhem. Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation and Withered will also grace the bill.

Formed by guitarist Morgan Steinmeyer HÃ¥kansson with the goal of becoming the “most blasphemous band in the world,” it’s been nearly a decade since Marduk last toured the states making an already punishing tour package all the more crucial. Marduk’s latest album, Rom 5:12, was released in North America in May 2007 via Regain.

Said Marduk in a collective statement to fans: “We are delighted to announce Marduk’s return to North America. We do not come in peace, but with flames of fire! Looking forward to see you all!”
