Black metal hellraisers Watain have issued a track by track preview of their forthcoming fifth studio album ‘The Wild Hunt’.
The album is due for release on Aug 19th (or Aug 20th in North America) on Centiry Media Records, and is the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Lawless Darkness’.
The first single from the album will be ‘All That May Bleed’, and is to be released in UK on June 24th.
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).
