MARDUK- Plague Angel Candlelight 2005
Losing key members certainly didn't hurt this album because the new version of Marduk comes out all guns blazing. Whoever complained at World Funeral's slightly slowed down pace better be taking notice because the majority of this disc is lightning fast and blistering. The drumming contained on this album is nothing short of mind boggling. Emil Dragutinovic simply destroys the kit, commanding your attention from start to finish with a highly impressive performance.
I was not one of those who disliked the slower, anthem-like approach to some tunes on the last album. The well placed, grinding tunes on Plague Angel really help the album's dynamics as a whole, standing strong against the ungodly fast cuts that dominate the disc. Add in the war-themed instrumental "Death March" with a demonic choir and marching war horns and you have a release that easily realizes the vision band founder Morgan conjured for this stellar album.
