I totally give my thanks to Marduk, for putting all their effort and their brutality into this unholy of an album! The ever popular war-machine has got enough blood for fuel, and they are in search for more. Hail Marduk!

The first moment I got this album, the first thought that came into my head was "Who the hell are these guys?", cause I only listened to few Black Metal bands, like Gorgoroth, Mayhem, Dark Funeral, and Immortal. After about 15 minutes into the album, I was pulled underneath by their brutal onslaught of carnage, and I instantly went insane. I wanted more of it. This was the very first album that started my favor for Marduk. My fandom continued, and I went out and got more of their albums. Panzer Division, Plague Angel, Rom 5:12, and Heaven Shall Burn...when we are gathered.

Into the album, my friend stopped by and he joined in the utter madness that went on in my place. No pun intended. Finally, as a wind down, "As A Garment" came on, and I went to sleep. This album has truly shown it's dark, rich and blood-thirsty nature, and I am glad to have been a part of it! For two days straight days now, It's been nothing but Marduk. Wow. Those neighbors left me alone, cause when I went out and stomped around, screaming and snarling like if I was possessed, they thought I actually was! Good thing too, cause their religious bullcrap was going on for days and days.

Marduk has done alot in their lifetime, and they, in my opinion, have totally earned the title as "The most blasphemous band in the world". Hell, they might as well be the face of Black metal itself! Once again, praise be to Marduk: The unholy formation of damned souls forged from sulfur and hate!

If you, reader, have not heard of this band, or this album, I suggest you go and get the album, or go to Wikipedia and read on them. Thank you for reading this, metal heads. Keep pushing the evil forth!

Wormwood is Marduk’s 11th studio album and is of the black metal genre (some may consider this Brutal Black or Pure/Raw Black Metal). This album was Released in October 2009 by Regain Records. This is the latest stuff from Swedish Black Metal band Marduk and it’s a mixture between super fast and super slow black metal.

Firstly this album’s tempo fluctuates between very fast and very slow many times. You have fast songs such as Whorecrown and This Fleshy Void, you have the slow songs such as Funeral Dawn and To Redirect Perdition and finally you have the songs that like to have both such as the opening song No Where, No-One, Nothing and also Into Utter Madness. This is a good thing about this album because it is never boring unlike some other bands that try too hard to be brutal all the time or the ones that are too slow all the time. This album has music for any kind of Black Metal fan but not so much for the atmospheric fans. The vocals are still great and still sound like classic Marduk. This album not only is brutally fast but it has some emotion to it such as the song Whorecrown. The part near the end where there is a guitar solo (kind of) that has a little atmosphere to it and sounds a little scary. To top it all off they also put some scary alien voice at the end of the song Whorecrown to have the listener leave with shivers down their spine. This Album is not something you should try to fall asleep with mainly because there are parts it where goes from 0 to 100 decibels in less than a second. The music is very tight in this album and can change mood without any notice such as in the song Phosphorous Redeemer. This is probably the best thing about this album and that it is not in monotone and therefore not boring.

This is an excellent album but some fans may be a little disappointed by this album. The main thing people will realize this that there is no song in this entire album that is all out brutal and there is nothing that compares to the song World Funeral for example. For anyone who is looking for 100% brutality you won’t find here. Sure there are tracks such as Whorecrown but even that song many not even compare to the pace of some of Marduk’s older work. They focus more on melody rather than speed on a few of their tracks which don’t exactly turn out as good as people may have hoped. Also the vocals are a bit different than their older stuff. It seems to be a little more distorted, this may be good for some listeners and bad for some. It depends what you like. Also the track Unclosing The Curse is a little odd.

Overall this album is still very good. It still has music that will send you speakers at 100mph but there are also tracks that are slower. There are 2 main moods in this album, fast and slow. I would recommend this album to anyone who likes older Marduk or Brutal, Pure/Raw black metal fans. I definitely do not recommend this to any fans of Ambient or Atmospheric Black metal fans. I also recommend the song Into Utter Madness for people who are new to this band, and the song Whorecrown to people who like Marduk’s sheer brutality. I give this album a 17/20.

gletscherwolf - 08 Grudzień 2010: Reviewer did a pretty good job in my view. It is not the best that Marduk has produced, but it certainly is up to standard. I like the contrast of their slower and very fast songs. They did it before and I hope they'll continue in this way. It's not too much to say that, where most of the early black metal icons have gone to the dogs, Marduk is holding its ground.
