Swedish black metallers MARDUK have finished recording three songs for a new EP, “Iron Dawn”, that will be released in North America on the same day as the band’s appearance at the Maryland Deathfest on May 27 (May 30 in the rest of the world via Regain Records). So the first chance to get your hands on the EP will be during the festival and the group’s upcoming “7 Bowls Of Wrath” tour (taking place late May/early June).
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 will be made available as a special treat for all MARDUK legionaries out there.
“Iron Dawn” track listing:
01. Warschau 2: Headhunter Halfmoon
02. Wacht Am Rhein: Drumbeats Of Death
03. Prochorovka: Blood And Sunflowers
The “Iron Dawn” EP will only be available for a certain time period and will be unleashed on digipak version and also on 12-inch vinyl limited to 500 copies worldwide.
Trondheim, Norway-based black metal band LEGIONES will release a seven-inch EP in the spring via Duplicate Records. The songs “Threat Of Captivity” and “Against Judah” are taken from the band’s self-titled demo, which was released in a strictly limited DVD-cover edition (50 copies) by the band, and has been remastered for this release. The lyrics are taken from the Old Testament, portraying the brutality of religion. The music is black metal of the highest order. Renowned designer Robert Høyem (At The Ends Of The Earth Design), who has previously worked with SLAGMAUR and SHINING, has provided the visual aesthetic.
LEGIONES‘ new EP will be limited to 500 copies. A very limited special edition in a customized box containing the EP and a few extra items will also be available, and will be the first part of a series of collectors’ editions from the band. More details to follow.
