I interviewed Marduk founding guitarist Morgan Hakansson recently, on the eve of their first U.S. tour since 2001 (also on the bill: Mayhem, Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Withered, and for the first gig in NYC on 5/21, Lair of the Minotaur). Unsurprisingly, he was a nice guy, and apparently thrifty by nature - he talked incredibly fast, maybe to avoid racking up a massive long-distance charge, as he was calling me from Sweden. Anyway, you can read the Q&A here. Enjoy!

Thanks - I haven't gotten my copy of the final printed issue yet, but I really enjoyed meeting him and doing the piece.
