Watain announce formats for upcoming album The Wild Hunt

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 10th July 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Taking things to the next step – whatever the costs are. This has always been Watain’s goal from day one and this has never been truer than with The Wild Hunt, their fifth full-length album coming out 19th August in Europe and 20th August in North America through the band’s own label His Master’s Noise and Century Media Records.

It would be easy to call this the most important album of their career but then again, all their albums are. Yet resting on their laurels never was an option and so Watain decided to go into seclusion for over six months to compose their new album, followed by four long and excruciating months in four different studios to record this beast. With mixing duties handled by the faithful Tore Stjerna at the famous Necromorbus studio in Alvik (Sweden), The Wild Hunt marks another gigantic achievement and most importantly once again ups the ante compared to Watain’s extremely well received previous releases.

The Wild Hunt will be released worldwide in the following formats:

Watain announce video trailer for All That May Bleed from upcoming album The Wild Hunt

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on 4th June 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Swedish black metallers Watain have released All That May Bleed, the first single from their upcoming album, The Wild Hunt. Head below to get your first impressions of the single. The band commented:

All That May Bleed shows but one facet of a quite diverse album, but we chose this song as a first glimpse into The Wild Hunt because of its bombastic lunacy and white-eyed malevolence which could be said to constitute a main foundation for the album. The lyric is an invitation to sacrificial blood letting, ecstatic zealotry and human sacrifice. The salt of Satan in the wounds of Christ!

Side B is a track called Play with the Devil originally recorded by the Black/Heavy Metal band Taiwaz in 1988, in Watain‘s hometown Uppsala. Gottfrid Åhman from In Solitude participates on solo guitar in Watain‘s version. The All That May Bleed  single will be out June 21st, 2013 in the following formats:

*Black 7″ vinyl – limited to 2,000 copies worldwide
*Red 7″ vinyl with sticker (only available from www.wolfwear.net) limited to 500 copies worldwide
*7″ Picture disc limited to 500 copies worldwide available from www.cmdistro.com and www.wolfwear.net
* Digital Download

Watain’s upcoming album The Wild Hunt will be released 19th August in Europe and 20th August 2013 in North America by His Master’s Noise, via Century Media Records. On the 24th of August, Watain will conduct the grand opening of The Wild Hunt world tour in their hometown Uppsala. For those who want to see Watain‘s infamous live ceremony taken to a new level; this is your chance. COmmenting on the tour, the band stated:

The plan is to make this concert everything we have ever wanted our concerts to be. In a touring scenario it is impossible to drag along all the horrors and infernal machinery we need for that, but performing in our hometown allows for a much more grandiose and spectacular stage show and performance. Mark our words, this will be one to remember!

The venue chosen for this night of unchained metal magic is Svandammshallarna, located in the heart of the city. Tickets will be released on Friday the 7th of June.
