Black metal agitators Marduk will buck the odds and return to North America once again as they have revealed dates this fall for the “Frontschwein North America Tour: Part 2”. Fresh off an Antifa controversy, it will be interesting to see if this tour goes off without a hitch. I personally hate anti-semitism but Marduk have said they before that they write about the horror of war and Morgan Steinmeyer Håkansson has been nowhere near as obtuse or opaque on the subject when pressed as more evasive bands. Lemmy sang about WW2 and collected a wide array of historical stuff from different sides of the conflict and he was not a Nazi, for example.
Honestly I am more concerned by Incantation on this tour who I have often dug the music of but have heard various rumors about regarding closeted racism that I hope are not true. If anything, Marduk underscore how terrifying the world can be.
That said, I happen to really enjoy Marduk’s music and am not generally fond of boosting things I think are maybe problematic without at least mentioning it. Marduk are not on that list and Abysmal Dawn fucking rule.
