The Nine - Those of the unlight! God I love those lyrics. But that's not why I'm reviewing this 11 year old release. I have often heard people say, that they don't like Marduk cause it's too blasphemous, fast and totally out of control. Some days ago I was at another forum and a guy said, again, that Marduk's just too darn chaotic. Well I think it's all a matter of taste. I personally enjoyed Panzer Division Marduk a lot. I can't judge another person for not liking Marduk's agressive style. But I feel it's my duty to inform the people that not all of Marduk's creation sounds like "Slay the Nazarene" fury at it's worst. Or best, depends on how you like your brutal black metal.

One year after their unpolished debut, the most aggressive Black Metal band in Sweden finally walks through darkened soil, still their sound isn't as brutal and crushing as their following albums, and that's what makes this album an instant classic, here you'll hear Marduk in their most balanced stage.

"Those Of The Unlight" is a masterpiece in Melodic Black Metal, while the band finally reaches their Black Metal power successfuly, the music keeps touching the melodic area, so it's not a bloody and raw album, instead you'll get darkened melodious metal, this is where Marduk truly started slashing and killing with speedy execution and blasting structures but with a mild scheme and songwriting.

  Nothing beats this version of "Wolves":

Legion was a real stage animal.
