When we last expected the mighty Marduk on our shores, there seemed to be a little problem with the paperwork and the band missed what amounted to every single date on the tour that they were supposed to be headlining. Sure Rotting Christ got to headline all of those shows but it wasn’t really what the fans had paid for nor expected. Now all seems in order at the office and they have just issued this press release. Check it out along with the poster and dates.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I haven’t seen Marduk in a number of years I am pretty excited about this one. It’s also a great chance to support the sounds of Incantation and Abysmal Dawn so if you plan on hitting any dates on this tour be sure to get there early enough to see everyone. So what do you readers think about this one? Will you be in attendance? Let us know down in the comments below. See you next time.
