The Serpent Sermon tour kicked off over the weekend, featuring a fearsome foursome of Marduk, 1349, Withered and Weapon, having swung through NYC on June 3rd, hitting Music Hall of Williamsburg with Mutant Supremacy. More pictures from that unholy Sunday are below.

Weapon, who recently signed to Relapse for their follow-up to 2010's From The Devil's Tomb, have completed recording for their new LP and will release it this fall. Marduk also has a new album, Serpent Sermon, which is currently out now via Century Media Records. But what's really making the rounds about Marduk is Morgan 'Evil' Steinmeyer HÃ¥kansson claim to own part of the skull of legendary Mayhem vocalist Dead.

"I got it way back, right after he died. Back in those days they [Mayhem] were living in a house and didn't have the best financial aspects, so they didn't even have a telephone. So I remember I was celebrating New Year's in 1991 with Dead back home in Sweden. Then he got back, he wrote one letter [to me], then someone told me he's killed himself."

Morgan continued, "So I wrote a letter [to Mayhem] and then I got the reply back from the guitar player [Euronymous] -- "Well he just shot himself and here's a piece of his skull." It was a shotgun, you know? So [he also sent me] two pieces of the lead and a piece of the wet brain. I've still got it. I keep it well protected."

We asked Morgan who else Euronymous had sent tokens from Dead's suicide to. "He sent it to all these former comrades of Dead," he said with an innocent smile, making it clear that he would not reveal any other names. "A few of them. There were not that many people ... maybe five." -[Loudwire]

I guess congrats are in order? More pictures from the Music Hall of Williamsburg show are below.

Hey you labeled the 1349 photos as Marduk.

Posted by Anonymous | June 6, 2012 12:11 PM

11:58...my guess none. The cojones on these pricks to expect a tip for having to exert all that energy, handing a t-shirt to someone. This stunt alone would make me walk away from the merch table and not give these fucks a dime.

You twats must not go to a lot of shows if you have never seen a tip jar at a merch table.

12:10- says the poster who no doubt loves bands who dress up as fuzzy animals at some point or another while performing .

Ghoul Sausage

so it's like The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland?

fuckin sausages, is there no low you won't stoop to?

Posted by Anonymous | June 6, 2012 1:46 PM

12:54...No I don't go to all that many shows nowadays; but when I did go I NEVER saw a tip jar. Guess it's just another confirmation that people are shittier, more self absorbed and expect things for free; more so now than in the past.

I'm sure Dead would be happy his name was mentioned on a website called Brooklynvegan and his "comrades" were playing for guys like this

Notice that story didn't have anything to do with gettin' some pussy?

None of their stories do.

The schedule in the last pic says "Showers: Yes" - I'm busy right now, so if someone else could finish this joke I'd appreciate it.

The sausages are sending pieces of skull and brain in the mail. lulz....

"Notice that story didn't have anything to do with gettin' some pussy?

To be that concerned about "gettin' some pussy" implies the inability to actually acheive just that. You lose.

Posted by Anonymous | June 6, 2012 4:19 PM

2:43- You do realize that your use of the word "lulz" completely negates your ability to criticize anyone, right?

Posted by Anonymous | June 6, 2012 4:28 PM

3:00-According to your logic, Motley Crue would then be the greatest band in the world, due to all of the pussy they slayed in the past. It's like reading a post from Carl from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Nice merch girl.

There is one question that needs to be answered: Why do hipsters suck cock for coke when their parents are willing to pay $2000 a month rent for that apartment on Nassau Avenue?

Ducks > Dookie (album) > Marmaduke > Duke of York > Marduk > dookie

love the photos but what does the article have anything to do with any of the bands pictured?

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2012 12:06 PM

6:59, let's go skiing together some time

Posted by Lynn Sanatee | June 8, 2012 1:52 AM

Oh man, you guys crack me up. Thanks for the laugh.

By the way, we get a lot of tips from generous fans that are happy to help us get gas money to the next town. We put the jar out because of tips we recieve, not the other way around. They are never expected, only appreciated since bands like us sleep in our van EVERY night for 4-6 weeks straight. Save the harsh judgement for church.

Thanks again to anyone who came out to the show. Especially all our friends. It was great as always.
