BraveWords scribe Jason Deaville sat down with WATAIN's Erik Danielsson at their stop in Toronto on Saturday, October 12th at the Opera House. Erik discusses their new album, The Wild Hunt, the state of black metal, and his love for METALLICA's controversial Black Album. Stream the entire interview below.
Hunted Or Be Hunted!
Right after an extensive North America tour in October/November, Watain will set European stages on fire to present their new opus, The Wild Hunt, live. Those who witnessed the album release show on August 24th in Watain's hometown Uppsala in Sweden will know what to expect - everybody else can be curious about it and shouldn’t miss it.
The band comments: "It will be with the dead of winter that we shall come hunting through Europe again. By then the dry heat of summer will be long gone, moistened by gasoline and tears, ready to explode into a storm of panic and euphoria, death and metal, war and pain, sodomy and lust! So gather yourselves and prepare, forbidden fires and unearthly lights shall illuminate the winter nights..."
The special guests for the tour will be announced soon. Dates include:
5 - Manchester, England - Academy 2
6 - Glasgow, Scotland - Garage
7 - Birmingham, England - The Library @ The Institute
8 - London, England - Electric Ballroom
Watain are currently on tour in North America with IN SOLITUDE and TRIBULATION.
