MetalBite Review by Tomek on 8/25/2007
Any band has its diehard fans and dieharder antagonists, but in Marduk
's case, it goes to a different level. No matter what album they put out there, it stirs up a storm of controversy and brings new blood while letting go of the old followers. To me, personally, Marduk
cannot go wrong and in "Rom 5:12"
case, they took all the right steps and did all the right things to simply record the best Marduk
All the way from the first clicks to the last moments, Marduk
will not let you go. Gripping, amazing and continuous high performance with intros, outros, guest appearances, variety in speeds and tempos, primal and raw, epical, addictive and catchy. Absolutely powerful album, full of songs with identity, groove, speed and blasphemy that Marduk
is known for. Definitely diverse, more mature, but at the same time standard in all dimensions.
New opus is an impressive proof that they are not done yet, and we can expect more progression, even though it's all based on the same old formula. No matter what other people say I think Marduk
will surprise us many more times and that's simply fine by me.
