​Marduk: release of 13th album "Frontschwein"

The Swedish black metal band Marduk released a new full-length album "Frontschwein", which literally translates as "front pig". This album is the second release of the band after "Panzer Division Marduk", entirely dedicated to theme of war.

"Frontschwein" is a military jargon in period of Second World War. So in those days frontline soldiers were called who were used as cannon fodder.

"Frontschwein" explores the killing fields of WW2", — guitarist Morgan: "From the simple front soldier's daily hell in the title-track to the raging, burning desert of "Afrika", across the blood-soaked ground in "Falaise: Cauldron Of Blood" — site of a murderous battle in Normandy / France — over to the Eastern front. At the end of the record, war drums are beating, while the wheels of death grind ever on, spewing forth "Thousand-Fold Death".

"Frontschwein" is available on: Ltd. CD Mediabook in Slipcase, Standard CD Jewelcase, Gatefold black LP & LP-Booklet, Gatefold golden LP & LP-Booklet, Gatefold clear LP & LP-Booklet and Digital album.
