If you plotted Marduk’s career output on a bar chart rating them on quality, the picture would look like a city centre planned by a complete lunatic. Starting out playing some of the (then) most acerbic music around as one of Sweden’s earliest post-Bathory black metal bands, they began a worrying decline, only to completely revive their fortunes three albums back. Serpent Sermon, their fourth album with vocalist Mortuus and their twelfth in all, aims to continue their blasphemous campaign of hate.
