Marduk @ Getaway Rock Festival 2011

“Between two evils, I generally like to pick the one I never tried before.” — Mae West

One of the problems with festivals with more than two stages is sometimes you have to miss an act you’d like to see. Such was the case when Marduk took the stage inside the Gasklockorna while Alice Cooper was playing on the big stage just outside. Given that I had seen Alice before (and the songs I ended up missing were Feed My Frankenstein, Clones, Poison, and Wicked Young Man–four songs I’d gladly miss again), I went with Marduk.

I’m not that familiar with Marduk, although I do listen to them on Pandora sometimes. They are your somewhat typical Scandinavian Black Metal band. I find them a little less penetrable than, say, Immortal or Emperor.

Summers in Sweden, especially as far north as Gävle, are not hot. However, the Gasklockorna building was extremely hot inside for every band. I split after several songs to cool down outside while watching the end of Alice Cooper’s show.
