Upcoming tours – Marduk, Immolation, Origin

marduk et al on tour

With the metal scene as it is these days, one out of three DMU-approved bands isn’t too bad. Marduk, Immolation, Origin, and a band named Bio-Cancer will be touring Europe throughout May 2016. While Marduk is headlining, their companions in general seem to have similar levels of notoriety; I wouldn’t dwell too much on the specifics of the headlines. I’m betting European fans of Death Metal Underground’s writing will treat this as a possible opportunity to see Immolation in concert. While that’s an optimistic appraisal, the band allegedly gives their older and stronger some emphasis when live, so if you can grit your teeth through the other material it could very well be worth your while. Otherwise, you’ll have to hope there’s good beer… and that there’s plenty of beer money in your pockets.

    Newer Immolation is pretty decent. It’s more of a Mercyful Fate-style progressive heavy metal thing than anything really death metal in spirit (a sentiment echoed by the DLA’s review of Harnessing Ruin), but it’s still worth listening to. I’d hate to be the sad sack that has to sit through the Origin spazzcore to hear it, though, or the doofus that sticks around for Panzer Division Norsecore™ afterwards.

    Immolation are always good to see live, they have powerful stage presence. Even their newer material that isn’t so good, sounds better live. They played 2 tracks off dawn of possession when I saw them. They played “those left behind” so they made my night. It would be nice if they did a tour playing dawn of possession in it’s entirety, but then that would be asking too much.

    The only marduk album I like is those of the unlight and even that album isn’t all that great. I listened to panzer division marduk once and haven’t listened to it since. The music on that album felt plastic to me, the only thing I like about it is the title of the album. They’re okish live, but nothing special.

    Origin are typical tech death musical masturbation.

    So yeah, immolation are the superior band on the bill.

    I saw Immolation open for Nile a few years back, around the time Majesty and Decay came out. They played mostly older stuff, and man what a performance, very animated in spite of the fact that their material isn’t exactly easy to play.

    Their drummer was behind the merch table and he asked why I was buying an older shirt and not a Majesty and Decay one. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that their new album sucked so I told him I hadn’t heard it yet so I didn’t know if I liked it >.>
