Marduk - Serpent Sermon

Whole album streaming on Cvlt Nation. Must say on first listen it's sounding shit hot. Loved Rom 5:12 but thought that Wormwood was shite. This sounds different again with very obviously Funeral Mist qualities.

Heard it twice, and it sounds pretty mellow imo, I loved mammon and the last two long tracks but the rest is pretty meh. Maybe its a grower

I'm enjoying it anyway. The preview track did nothing for me so I wasn't expecting much but I don't think there's been a particularly weak moment so far. Into Second Death bing a definite highlight.

Ouuu, thanks! I popped Rom in a few weeks ago. First time in a long time and it has to be one of my favorite vocal performances ever. I LOVE Mortuss' vocals, he puts a lot of heart in to it. For some reason, I'd love to hear him over a Deathspell Omega track, he'd be perfect.

Last time I saw them live was after Rom 5:12 so I was really looking forward to it but it was complete shit bar when Alan Averill got up for Accuser/Opposer. Hadn't noticed the talk about this in the BM 2012 thread so apologies for starting a new one.

Yeah, I'd love to hear him as well as MKM do guest vocals on a DSO track (although MKM can sometimes sound pretty similar to Mikko, so I wouldn't be surprised if they've already snuck in a guest spot from him on some of the more schizophrenic vocal performances on Paracletus or something else.)

But if you haven't heard Funeral Mist - Salvation already (which you very well should if you're gushing over Mortuus' vocals), that album has some obvious similarities with SMRC.

Salvation is essential listening as is Triumphator - Wings of Antichrist.

Salvation yes.

Wings of Antichrist is a pretty good Norsecore kind of album, and it's definitely an awesome listen if you're looking for a good vocal performance from Arioch/Mortuus, but I wouldn't say it's as inspired as Salvation. Funny thing, I think it kind of sounds more like older Marduk than Marduk with Mortuus does.

That make sense really cause, to me, Marduk with Mortuus is like a totally different band. I can't speak for the last album cause I only listened to it maybe twice but this one seems to be going in a slightly different direction again.

ROM is such an awesome and underrated album, I'll have to check this out.

Listened once and deleted in disappointment... Wormwood was decent, not as good as Rom, but I found this really boring. Maybe I should give it another chance.

Was about to do the same, but trust me, the second half of the album is where it's at. First half is too Wormwood-boring shitfest indeed though.
