MARDUK NEWS: PIECES OF DEAD’S BRAIN, NEW MARDUK OUT TODAY, PANTS TO BE SHAT

It was reported Monday that Marduk guitarist Morgan Steinmeyer Håkansson confirmed an elusive fact: Yes, friends of suicided Mayhem singer Per “Dead” Ohlin were given pieces of his shotgun-blasted skull and brain, and Håkansson is one of those around five people entrusted to vouchsafe this most mortal keepsake. Wow!

It’s way gross and morbid, but the insinuation of this 20 year-old tale of dead Dead and his bandmate Euronymous (the sharer of noggin shards) is that the gesture was out of respect for both Dead and his “comrades” in the young black metal scene in Norway and Sweden.

I’m into it. That’s a memento that demands to be remembered, treasured, and obeyed. “Don’t disappoint Dead,” the smudge of brain matter must scream at Håkansson and crew, and effectively so cuz Marduk is fucking pants-shittingly awesome: 2009’s Wormwood was a life-changer, and today’s new Serpent Sermon (listen) is a colossus, an instant classic of apocalypse to be spoken of in the awed tones that metal people reserve for our most eye-popping accomplishments. Shit is awesome. And so into my will is going a stipulation that upon my death, the Marduk guys will each receive fragments of my boner. “Don’t disappoint Anso,” it will cry eternally.
