First DVD by the legendary Swedish Black Metal band.
After numerous failed attempts at recapturing the greatness and glory or their pre "Nightwing" album days through several studio albums and live ones, the band has done at best they could with their DVD "Funeral Marches And Warsongs". Comprised of two ten set live shows, a raw feeling shorter set in Germany, music videos and extra footage, this Marduk release doesn't get them the good new material they need to recharge the band, but it does show the band is still great live and has potential.
What a Metal DVD really comes down to is how well the band performs, and Marduk dominates from first to last song on all their shows. Despite minor editing problems on the Germany show, and the camera's love affair with Legion during the Poland show, this is one hell of a DVD because Marduk puts on a great performance and have total domination for each song. The band puts their live intensity and rawness into every song making them more than the studio ones. Their physical movements have hatred, intensity, and grace, combing all three at once a few times. It’s what you want out of a live performance!!
