Marduk - Frontschwein CD
Marduk have simply outdone themselves on Frontschwein. Forging an album that accurately captures the terror and destruction of the frontlines of war is quite an accomplishment, and there is perhaps no other band in black metal today better equipped to do so than Marduk. Not only does this album give a terrifying soundtrack to the horrors of the Second World War, it does so without ever coming off as repetitive or boring by crafting an entirely unique atmosphere to each song. Frontschwein is easily Marduk’s strongest release of the last 15 years, bringing a fresh take to a genre which often takes pride in its lack of creativity. Much like the bloodsoaked carnage written about on this album, Marduk assault the listener with the force of a thousand tanks firing at once, proving to be nothing short of a sonic war machine conquering all.
