WATAIN: ‘The Wild Hunt’ Album Track-By-Track Preview

A track-by-track “preview” of “The Wild Hunt”, the new album from Swedish black metallers WATAIN, can be found at DecibelMagazine.com. 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. A single, “All That May Bleed”, will precede the full-length effort at the end of June.

Comments WATAIN: “‘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 will be 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 on WATAIN‘s version).
