Withered @ Blackenedfest (more by Paul Birman)

Now that the debacle that was Blackened Fest is behind us, rest comfortably in knowing that Marduk has arrived in the US, ready to play three shows including one in Baltimore (home of Maryland Death Fest, one of their original destinations) TONIGHT (8/12) with Withered and Black Anvil. The band will land in NYC on 8/15 at Gramercy to be joined by Tombs (tickets are still available, and for $5).

Meanwhile, if you have Friday (8/14) available and feel like making a weekend of it, the band will be at the one and only Duff's in Brooklyn for a "special signing session". Details are on the below flyer.

The Marduk dates are supposedly just the tip of the iceberg, as the band preps for the impending release of their new album Wormwood:

"We are excited to finally be over in the states and do these shows after all the problems with the visas. The three shows in August are just the start. We are preparing for a full tour in the winter that will cover all the areas we missed on Blackenedfest. Please join us as we raise the Banner Of The Wolf!"
- [Marduk guitarist Morgan HÃ¥kansson]
Full tour dates, Duff's flyer and some videos are below. Tombs was recently added to the super-terrific Planet Caravan festival in North Carolina featuring Pentagram, Clutch, YOB, Kylesa, Burst, Orange Goblin, Sourvein, The Gates of Slumber, and so many others. Tickets for that event on 9/18 and 9/19 are available here.

Oh Mazel Tov on them finally making it into the USA!

I am psyched to see them, and to see Tombs again.

I'm sorry, the NEW Duffs - FUCKING BLOWS - nothing like the last one (or the 1st). It's corny as shit, no style/grime, all gloss. Fake fucking posers and old drunks thinking its cool to hit on poser-metal chicks. FAIL

4:58 - Because MEHtal is the most predictable & cliched genre out there. That's why.

Each incarnation of Bellevue/Duff's had its unique charms. Bellevue was scuzzy and a classic Port Authority dive. North 1st Street felt like the end of the earth. And the Marcy Avenue spot is back to the Port Authority vibe... lots of degenerates hang out on that block, and you never know what's going to happen. Plus, Jimmy Duff is a fucking class act.

Jimmy Duff is a REAL class act.
Hearses and babes.

August 13, 2009 10:16 AM: As cliched as indie rock bands wearing a stupid Halloween mask on stage? Or maybe the singer wearing an ironic shirt with a bad beard? Just asking?
