MARDUK recently completed work on its 12th studio album, “Serpent Sermon”, for a late spring release.

A CD listening session for journalists and media was held in Stockholm on February 11.

Several photos from the studio can be seen at this location.

MARDUK and the band’s record label, Blooddawn Productions, last announced a partnership with Century Media Records.

The band will play its first hometown show in Norrköping in over 12 years on April 28 at Skandiateatern.

MARDUK‘s latest EP, “Iron Dawn”, was made available at the Maryland Deathfest in May 2011 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.
