In anticipation of the release of their upcoming album, The Wild Hunt, Sweden’s sinister black metal cultists Watain have unveiled anther new song from the album. The new song, The Child Must Die, can be heard down below. Watain made comment on the song:

The Child Must Die is a song of sorrow and liberation, of the sacrifices that the path of adversity requires. Musically it shows yet another side of The Wild Hunt, being more Heavy Metal-rooted perhaps than All That May Bleed.

In related news, Watain have also teamed up with American Decibel Magazine to give fans a white-on-black flexi disc for an exclusive cover of Fuck Off, We Murder, as made famous by GG Allin. Head to this location to listen to the cover. Commenting on the cover, Watain had the following to say:

Driven by an inner fire and a genuine contempt for society and all its particles, GG Allin lived and died as a true rock n roll outlaw, and is to this day an inspiration for anyone to whom conformity and authority are things that must be fought and eliminated, not only by words but by action.

The flexi disc for Fuck Off, We Murder will be available for subscribers only in Decibel’s September issue (out in August).

Produced once again by Tore Stjerna at his Necromorbus studio in Alvik (Sweden), The Wild Hunt is a sonic and lyrical tour-de-force that explores Watain‘s roots, such as Bathory and Dissection, while also remaining truly unique. Having lost none of their integrity, Watain continues to push the boundaries of the scene with their fifth full-length, refusing to compromise their sound and vision. Amid the tracks teeming with the band’s classic sound, The Wild Hunt also features clean vocals (a first for the band!) which, as front-man Erik puts it, “…is just us being brutally personal and honest. It shows another important facet of the Watain world.” As this new album will soon prove, Watain truly lives in a world all their own.

The Wild Hunt is due out 19th August in Europe and 20th August in North America through the band’s own label His Master’s Noise via Century Media Records.
