WATAIN: New York City Concert Footage, Video Interview Posted Online

Guitar World's MetalKult.com has posted a new video interview with WATAIN's bassist/vocalist Erik Danielsson and drummer H. Jonsson in which the Swedish black metal horde talks about its views on the current black metal scene, selling out and bringing its "total death" into the world.

"It is not our intention to save the black metal scene," says Danielsson. "We are here to burn the scene to ashes. Unlike most other bands, when you scratch under the surface of WATAIN you don't find plastic...you find an abyss."

The video was filmed by the MetalKult crew in New York City on May 14, 2007, while WATAIN was touring the U.S. behind their latest album, "Sworn to the Dark" (Ajna Offensive). Also available on MetalKult.com is live footage of "Sworn to the Dark" from that show.
