Here’s a message from their frontman, E.: “It’s always a special feeling to release an album with Watain; to let the levee break and have the hungry waters gush forth again, swallowing everything in its way. Hail to all of our supporters who gave the release of The Wild Hunt the attention and dignity it deserves! See you on the long and winding road that now lies ahead of us.”
