MARDUK To Join Blackest Of The Black Tour 2010

September 8th, 2010

Swedish black metallers MARDUK will return to the U.S. this fall as part of the coveted Blackest Of The Black tour, founded by Danzig frontman/legend Glenn Danzig in 2003 as a way to promote extreme bands of his choosing from around the globe. Past Blackest Of The Black tours have included Dimmu Borgir, Moonspell, Skeletonwitch and Nile.  The 2010 edition will kick off on October 25 and wind its way through over a dozen cities before coming to a close in mid November. Additional support will be provided by Possessed, Toxic Holocaust and Withered.

MARDUK have been touring the globe in support of Wormwood, their eleventh studio album released last October via Regain Records. Wormwood found its way to  the top of year end lists both domestically and abroad and continues to reap praise among listeners nearly a year after its release . Decibel Magazine gave it a 9/10 review saying, ”Wormwood…drives home grim nails of varying shapes and sizes – all black ones of course…repeated listens reveal deeper abysses.” Blabbermouth commended the band for, “…an atmosphere that continues to be cold and uncomfortably morose, made even more sinister by a bass tone that is not only thick and audible, but also value-additive,” while KNAC.com said, “along with Mortuus’ obtuse lyrics and guttural, phlegmy vocals, MARDUK‘s surprisingly crafty compositions…and deft use of effects — as opposed to rote orchestration — give them an air of sophistication and guile you don’t often find in black metal.” Added Kerrang in a review of their New York City performance last year: “…grim as fuck, they knuckle down and pound out barrage after barrage of searing, slicing black metal evil…”

Confirmed dates thus far include:
