MARDUK - Those Of The Unlight LP (MARBLE)
This is an evil fucking album. From the opening blast of "Darkness Breeds Mortality", Marduk immerse the listener in pure darkness. Aside from the obvious and continuing theme of the black and the bleak, Those of the Unlight sees Marduk expanding the already stellar songwriting evident on their debut LP. While Dark Endless succeeds in cohesion of atmosphere, Those of the Unlight is thematically tighter than its predecessor. While Norwegian black metal bands of the early '90s were freezing the scene with cold blasts of hatred and evil, Marduk defined a "Swedish black metal sound" that would further the scope of what black metal would accomplish in the years that followed.
