Swedish black metal kings WATAIN just completed their fourth full-length album, after two intense months at Necromorbus Studio! Vocalist and mastermind E. comments: "I am now holding in my hand the final master tape of what might be the most dynamic and charged WATAIN release ever recorded. May the gods unto which it is written be pleased! We are very much looking forward to share this rich feast with our followers, whom we know have been hungering for a very long time. All I can say is that it will be worth the wait. We raise our cups unto all of you whose patience and support have been constant during the three fiery years since the release of "Sworn to the Dark", and look forward to set the night aflame with you again soon!" The unveiling of WATAIN's fourth monument will take place on June 7th, under ceremonial circumstances yet to be revealed. In collaboration with Sweden Rock Magazine and Season of Mist, WATAIN have put together a special CD that all subscribers of the magazine will get with issue #70 (out April 6th). The CD consists of a cover of BATHORY's "The Return of Darkness and Evil" as well as the brand new track "Reaping Death", from WATAIN's upcoming album, which title is yet to be announced. Last but not least, WATAIN will release a single entitled "Reaping Death". It will be released as a picture 7" EP on Walpurgisnacht. This single will feature the track "Reaping Death", along with a special B side.Three month and change seems so far away at this point. But I know it'll be worth the wait.
Watain will be appearing May 28 in Baltimore, MD as part of Maryland Deathfest.
