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:

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!
