SKU: cd 168d Categories: , ,


Marduk’s seventh release La Grande Danse Macabre, somewhat divided their fan base when it was first unveiled back in 2001. Featuring a bunch of songs that slowed things down quite a bit, longtime followers of this Swedish black metal contingent cried out in anger that the band’s trademark blast beat frenzy was toned down quite a bit. In all honesty, La Grande Danse Macabre is a wonderful change of pace from the non-stop brutality of albums like Panzer Division Marduk or Heaven Shall Burn When We Are Gathered, both classic albums no doubt, but a slight respite was needed and La Grande Danse Macabre delivered that change. In late 2001 Marduk joined forces with some of the heaviest acts in metal on the X-Mass Festivals through Europe. In 2001 they were joined by Cannibal Corpse, Kreator, Nile, Krisiun and Vomitory. This album was recorded during that tour at the Zeche Carl in Essen Germany on the 12th of December. The sound is pretty decent and Legion is at his best here, awash in fake blood and interacting greatly with the crowd, who are flailing about obviously enjoying themselves immensely.
