Marduk - Dark Endless CD


I strongly recommend listening to this album, along with the following two albums. This one in particular shows a completely different side to the band, while Those... and Opus Nocturne are at least recognizably black metal, Dark Endless shows that Marduk was equally as capable as a death metal outfit. I sometimes wonder how a sequel to this album would have sounded if they hadn't radically reinvented themselves on Those of the Unlight. Still, the reality preserves this album as a unique one in their discography. Personally I think it deserves to be held in the same regard as more widely acknowledged classics of Swedish death such Left Hand Path, Across the Horizon, Dark Recollections, and others. Try it.
