Marduk are without doubt one world leaders in the art of Black Metal. Uncompromising. Unrelenting.
Unstoppable. They return for their first tour of Australia in over 5 long years, on their current World crusade spreading the word of their latest opus of darkness "Serpent Sermon" (out now on Century Media records).
Forming in Sweden in 1990 with the sole purpose of becoming the most brutal and blasphemous metal act ever, Marduk wasted no time in usurping the throne of the infamous Scandinavian Black Metal scene - releasing the cult EP 'Fuck me Jesus' in 1991. From this point on, Black Metal would never be the same...
2012 sees Marduk release their highly acclaimed new full length 'Serpent Sermon', and they continue the march towards World domination with their current World tour.
Touring along side Marduk is cult purveyors of darkness - Portal.
Live rituals by Portal are a rarity that must be experienced; words fail to describe the ominous, suffocating and unsettling nature of the event. A true revolutionary force in the art of dark extreme music, Portal have earned themselves a cult following with their LPs "Seepia" (2003), "Outre" (2007) and "Swarth" (2009).
It will almost be a year to the day that Australian audiences were left mesmerised by Portal's dark curses when they last stepped forth from the timeless abyss in which they dwell. With a new LP due in 2013, only they truly know what horrors they have in store for us.
Order of Orias are quickly becoming one of the most talked about Australian black metal acts, and for good reason. Releasing their debut album "Inverse" in 2011 to critical acclaim, Order of Orias toured across Australia and made their first European live appearance at the infamous Deathkult Open Air in early 2012.
With a unrelenting live show, Order of Orias commands the audience to be a part of their ritual.
