Swedish black metallers MARDUK have posted the following message on their official web site:"It has been known to us that Black Lodge/Sound Pollution or whatever they like to call themselves are going to re issue the classic MARDUK 'Dark Endless' album without owning the copyright or anything whatsoever regarding that album. Therfore Blooddawn [MARDUK's own label] have decided to re issue it by themselves to avoid having a bootleg version being released by Black Lodge. The official Blooddawn release is a remastered version with bonus material containing a live performance from 1991. The album will be offically released on the 13th of June. You can already preorder it from our web store. The first 100 orders will recive free stickers and poster. The limited-edition 'Blackcrowned' DVD is out as well. Check the store for more information." MARDUK are scheduled to return to the road at the end of August. According to the group's management, Europe will be hit first, followed by South America. Exact cities and dates will be announced soon. MARDUK were forced to cancel their European tour earlier in the year after drummer Emil Dragutinovic's arm was broken in a fight back in February. The band recently put the finishing touches on the videos for the songs "Throne of Rats" and "The Hangman of Prague". MARDUK's ninth full-length album, "Plague Angel", was released in the U.S. in March. The album came out in Europe last November via Blooddawn/Regain Records.
