Watain - Wolves Curse

Watain is a Swedish black metal band from Uppsala, formed in 1998. Watain's new and 4th album, Lawless Darkness, that was released today (June 7th). They also have released a new single earlier from the album, the new song Reaping Death was released in two formats, picture disc vinyl with a cover of the song Chains of Death by Death SS, and digisleeve CD with a cover of the song The Return of Darkness and Evil by Bathory.



Today for the release the guys from the band had a little meet and greet with a signing session at Sound Pollution here in Stockholm, a lot of fans had found their way to the store for a meet and of course to get the new album signed.

The album is also released to Spotify, so if you havent already order it or have some doubts, check it out here.

I baught the record today and have quick listen thru, the album has the classic Watain sound and it sounds great.



Todays tune is "Wolves Curse" is a great tune from "Lawless Darkness" Enjoy this piece.

First out is a live clip from Maryland Deathfest 2010, poor sound, but you get the idea. Second clip is the tune in full.

Det är bara att konstatera - WATAIN framstår som ett unikum inom black metal över huvudtaget, och svensk black metal i synnerhet. Mycket bra, igen, och de har verkligen ett helt eget sound, som parat med bandets lyrik & sätt att vara (ja, image kanske är det korrekta ordet men det känns nästan futtigt att använda i det här fallet) ger dem en särställning som inte matchas av något annat band inom genren.

Jag tror att WATAINs albumsvit från "Casus Luciferi" och framåt till i alla fall den nu aktuella "Lawless Darkness" kommer stå ut som lysande exempel i musikhistorien om 10, 20, 30 år.

Mycket imponerande, lite läskigt och oerhört fängslande.
Tack för ett bra låtval!
