Swedish black metallers MARDUK and their record label, Blooddawn Productions, have ended their cooperation with Regain Records. According to the band, a “new working partner will be presented within the nearest future.”
MARDUK completed the “7 Bowls Of Wrath” North American tour in early June.
The band’s latest EP, “Iron Dawn”, was made available at the Maryland Deathfest on May 27 (May 30 in the rest of the world via Regain Records) and at the six North American shows that followed.
According to a press release, the songs included on “Iron Dawn” differ from the concept that is being created for the next full-length album. Therefore this EP was made available as a special treat for all MARDUK legionaries out there.
“Wormwood”, the eleventh album from MARDUK, sold around 650 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 99 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
