MARDUK - Those Of The Unlight LP
Marduk’s primary sound in the early stages was a black/death metal hybrid. With their second album Those Of the Unlight, Marduk adopted a purely black metal sound before eventually shifting gears into war metal territory. Released in 1993, this album not only predates Ulver’s Bergtatt, Mayhem’s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, Darkthrone’s Transylvanian Hunger, and Emperor’s In The Nightside Eclipse but fares pretty well with these legendary albums in terms of musical quality. This is a supreme black metal record that should be heard by just about everyone that considers him/herself a BM enthusiast.
