Sweden’s MARDUK To Release ‘Viktoria’ Album In June
Swedish black metal band MARDUK will release their new album, “Viktoria”, on June 22 via Century Media Records. The effort will be made available in the following versions:
* Limited CD box set (with CD, woven patch, metal pin, three stickers)
* LP (with inlay and 180-gram vinyl)
* Standard CD Jewelcase
The disc’s first single will be released in the coming days.
MARDUK‘s latest album, “Frontschwein”, was released in 2015 through Century Media.
“Frontschwein” is German Army slang for “front pig” — a soldier serving long at the front, often used as an ironic accolade for a soldier with the will to fight.
Guitarist Morgan Steinmeyer Håkansson is the sole remaining member of MARDUK who played on the band’s debut album, 1992’s “Dark Endless”.
MARDUK‘s 13th studio album, “Frontschwein” was the band’s first solely war-themed release since 1999’s “Panzer Division Marduk”.
