I thought those release breathed some vigor into the genre. Still, for a slash and burn BM release-totally solid. I think they must have wanted to strip it down and do a bare knuckles release. Makes me think of Ravencult-Morbid Blood-fast, dirty and go for the jugular-but with better SQ/recording quality.
Woops! Let me rephrase: I was commissioned by Metal Blade for a doodooload of work for the next few months. I will never be on a record label's actual payrolled staff though. Everything I do is under my own name. :) I work for Season of Mist as well, among others. If I get on staff I can't work for other labels anymore. Conflict of interest and all that jazz.
What I meant to say was, keep an eye out for upcoming Metal Blade releases and you're gonna find my logo on them somewhere. :)
Anyway, about Marduk, and I quote:
Full of grace
The sacramental urine praise
The Lord is with you
Ravenous phalluses digging deep
Mother of God
Pray for us sinners
Semen and blood
Behold the handmaid of the Lord
In Piss-soaked Genuflexion"
Need I say more? :p
And I have just sold my DT880 250ohm and K701. Mr Speakers Mad Dog here I come!
