Marduk Announces “Frontschwein 2016 Tour” For US

I guess I must have missed attending a tour somewhere along the line because it’s been a pretty decent amount of time since I last caught the mighty Marduk. According to this press copy the band has not crossed the Atlantic to deliver their crushing sounds to our Metal masses since 2013 and that’s too long in the minds of their loyalists. To those fans I say “Rejoice” as Marduk recently announced the “Frontschwein 2016” tour and its coming right at us. This news had already started being circulated on Facebook but we need to wait for the full on press releases here at the Metal Command HQ to ensure all the facts are on point. Read on.

PiercingMetal Thoughts:
Having seen Marduk a number of times since taking up this mantle, I can honestly say that if you are a fan of crushing and incendiary Black Metal then you must add one of their concerts to your bucket list. It’s an experience for sure and one you will not forget for some time. Rotting Christ is also a must see band and they don’t actually get over to these parts all that often even though they were just here with Mayhem not too long ago. I’ve never seen either Carach Angren or Neconomicon to my knowledge but would surely love to add them to my musical lexicon of bands seen in concert and this tour is coming to our much visited venue the Gramercy Theatre. What do you readers think of this particular tour? Will you be attending? Let us know in the comments section below.
