Marduk is one fucking grim black metal band. There’s no arguing that but Panzer Division Marduk is so intense that it verges on simply being Satanic grindcore. This is not for wimps! However, with song titles like “Fist Fucking God’s Planet” and “Christ-Raping Black Metal”, the Pitchfork Media crowd is already aware of this.
Panzer Division Marduk is more than just speed. Morgan "Evil" Steinmeyer Håkansson does some amazing guitar work on this album. Marduk establishes the kvlt, frost-bitten feel of Scandinavian Black Metal without resorting to the tired gimmick of “gothic” keyboards. Of course, Marduk’s guitar picks are heavier than anything released by Cradle of Filth. Highly recommended for parolees and people living on the fringes of society.
