MARDUK: 'Plague Angel' Cover Posted Online

Swedish black metallers MARDUK have posted the cover artwork for their new album, "Plague Angel", at their official web site.

"Plague Angel" is scheduled for release in Europe on November 22 via Blooddawn/Regain. It will be released on the following formats: CD, LP and Picture Disc, and possibly also as a limited-edition digipak with a video for the track "Steel Inferno". The album will also be released on license by Hellion in Brazil, CD Maximum in Russia and Soundholic in Japan. No decision has been made on who will release it in the USA. MARDUK will also release a special "Deathmarch" tour EP on both CD and vinyl that will contain unreleased material and will only be sold on the upcoming tour.

The CD, which was recorded at Endarker studio in Norrköping, Sweden with producer Devo Andersson, will be the band's first release with new singer Mortuus (previously a member of FUNERAL MIST and TRIUMPHATOR under the alias Arioch). A video for the track "Throne of Rats" is currently being produced by director Roger Johansson (THE HAUNTED, IN FLAMES, HAMMERFALL) and is being described as "a morbid masterpiece and a tribute to death and war."

As previously reported, MARDUK will embark on a massive world tour beginning in December. The European portion of the trek, dubbed "Deathmarch 2004/2005", will be divided into two parts, with the first taking place in December and the second during spring 2005. A complete list of currently confirmed tour dates can be found here.
