Marduk Claim Ex-Bassist Joel Lindholm Was “Drinking Covertly” Prior To His Onstage Nazi Salute

Marduk have further commented on their decision to fire Joel Lindholm following his onstage Nazi salute at this year’s Incineration Festival in London, England. The band, who have been accused of white supremacy in the past, claim the bassist was “drinking covertly” before the incident.

Marduk said the following:

“Slight change of plans: Simon Wizén (Valkyrja) is handling bass for us at Thronefest this coming weekend. Devo will likely play the remaining festival shows, except for Brutal Assault.

The recent developments have sparked mixed opinions, which is fair enough. Nevertheless, it bears mentioning that Joel‘s escapades in London were the culmination of a string of questionable behaviour.

Despite repeated promises to respect the alcohol ban he received shortly after joining the band, Joel made multiple attempts to circumvent this by drinking covertly. Famously, Incineration Fest being the most recent example.

We were unaware of his various provocations between songs – as well as the concluding striptease – until that video surfaced the morning of Steelfest. Watching the first ten minutes was quite enough for everyone involved to conclude that Joel’s time with Marduk had come to an end.
