Swedish black metallers WATAIN have set "The Wild Hunt" as the title of their new album, due on August 19 in Europe and August 20 in USA via Century Media Records. The CD was once again mixed at the Necromorbus Studio in Alvik, Sweden by Tore Stjerna.
Comments the band: "After 120 nights of iron will and ardent magic, the fifth full-length album of WATAIN is now complete.
With broken bones and burning hearts, we have ploughed our way through deepest winter into a new wilderness, to which we will open the gates at summer's end.
Beware the rising star of dawn..."
Professionally filmed video footage of WATAIN's August 10, 2012 performance at last year's edition of the Bloodstock Open Air festival at Catton Park, Derbyshire in the United Kingdom can be seen below.
WATAIN released a new DVD, "Opus Diaboli", in North America on June 5. The production commemorates the band's 13 years of chaos by providing a visual and audio documentation of their ceremonial anniversary concert performance in Stockholm and the long years of physical, intellectual and spiritual work leading up to it. "Opus Diaboli" is an epic 90-minute journey into the forbidden realms of wild-hearted Satanic metal and the manifestation of a unique band that has truly chosen a path few have ever dared to tread upon.
