MARDUK / Fuck Me Jesus (1995)

Wrapped in what is surely a strong contender for cover art of the Century, this early, brutal release from the "most blasphemous band in the world" is a hell of a lot better than I’d anticipated it would be.  It’s an interesting blend of down-tuned Black and Death metal with a cluster of unexpected tempo changes that keep things fresh.  There’s even some creeping doom influences in there.
It was originally released on cassette in ‘91 but the version you’re likely to find if you go shopping will be the ’95 Osmose reissue.  It included an additional three tracks, two of which are Bathory covers, because everyone loves Bathory!

Songs of Note: Departure from the Mortals; The Black...

4 licks for Pazuzu out of 5
