MARDUK Drummer Quits?

November 6, 2006

MARDUK drummer Emil Dragutinovic is rumored to have quit the band. According to a source close to Emil, the drummer has agreed to perform on the band's upcoming studio album as a session musician but only "if he gets paid upfront." However, it should be noted that there has been no confirmation from the MARDUK camp regarding Emil's departure from the group and until then this information should be treated as a rumor only.

Dragutinovic is currently working with former MARDUK vocalist Legion (a.k.a. Erik Hagsted) and ex-MARDUK bassist B.War (a.k.a. Roger "Bogge" Svensson) on their ELIZIUM project (formerly REBELANGELS).

ELIZIUM is:

Legion (a.k.a. Erik Hagsted) - Vocals
B.War (a.k.a. Roger "Bogge" Svensson) - Bass
Marcus Lundberg - Rhythm Gutar
Jonas Mattson – Lead Guitar
Emil Dragutinovic (MARDUK, THE LEGION) – Drums

MARDUK recently uploaded a trailer for its new DVD, entitled "Blood Puke Salvation", at this location (8 MB). Released on September 25, the DVD contains over 90 minutes of live material filmed in Tilburg, Holland and Antwerpen, Belgium during December 2004. Also included are promotional videos for "Throne Of Rats", "Steel Inferno" and "The Hangman Of Prague", plus a photo gallery, behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and a section entitled "Deathmarch" with exclusive hand-filmed live material from over 20 cities from the "Deathmarch" tour.
