Marduk's predominant lyrical topics are Satanism, anti-Christianity, Biblical wars, Nazism and World War II. The latter two are a later addition to their lyrical / conceptual themes, stemming from their 1999 release Panzer Division Marduk; quickly growing among their fans' favorites. Marduk have released more and more songs relating to those chapters of human history such as "The Hangman of Prague" (moniker of Prague "Reichsprotektor" Reinhard Heydrich), "Night of the Long Knives", "Deathmarch" and others. It has to be noted, however, that by singing about Nazi Germany, Marduk do not subscribe to the tenets of 'national socialist black metal' scene (see NSBM), their approach not being justificatory or praising. Lyrical themes off their last two albums, "Plague Angel" and "ROM 5:12", have taken a different approach, in an almost "religious" direction, though written out as though to pervert Christian and biblical themes (Morgan has stated in an interview that he and singer Mortuus are both Bible experts).
Marduk was founded in Norrkoping, Sweden in 1990 by Morgan Steinmeyer Hakansson. His ultimate goal was to create the most blasphemous and Satanic band ever conceptualized. In 1991, Marduk released a three song demo entitled Fuck me Jesus, which due to its dark and irreverent lyrics was highly received by a cult following. In 1992, Marduk released their first full-length album Dark Endless on the No Fashion label and continued to tour Sweden, augmenting their steadily growing fan base. Marduk switched over to the French label Osmose in 1993 after a dispute with No Fashion. Marduk began to tour throughout the rest of Europe in 1994 and in 1995 had their first gig across the Atlantic in Mexico City. They continued to amass fans and release albums over the next few years, even spearheading the European "Black Metal Assault Tour" in 1998. In 2000, Marduk founded their own record label, Blooddawn Productions. Marduk continues to tour Europe, release albums, and is regularly featured in many prominent metal music festivals. In 2004 Marduk released their ninth studio album Plague Angel which was a great hit all over Europe and later on in the United States. To celebrate Marduk's 15-year anniversary, a live album called Warschau was released with seventeen live tracks from a show in Warsaw, Poland on September 17, 2005.
