Swedish black metal band Watain are one of the most intense and entrancing bands you can see live. They shared their ritualistic concert experience with an intimate crowd in Brooklyn, their only appearance in the states for 2014.
Hail Behemoth! The extreme / black metal act defeated death metal legends Deicide in our last Death Match. Behemoth are just three wins away from induction into our Death Match Hall of Fame, which can be experienced on our official YouTube channel along with Loudwire.com. Now, having dispensed of one iconic act, Behemoth face yet another one this week.
Swedish dark metallers In Solitude have been making some waves lately. The band was featured on last year's Decibel Magazine tour supporting Watain, with In Solitude scheduled to perform even more shows with Watain this year. With the band releasing their third full-length album, 'Sister,' we caught up with bassist Gottfrid Åhman.
Watain have been flying the flag of modern black metal for over a decade now, releasing some of the genre’s most talked about works in the process. Fans of the Swedish group’s black metal magic are divided into two groups: those who stop at ‘Casus Luciferi’ and those who regard their last two releases as modern black metal masterpieces. The newest offering to the Beast, ‘The Wild Hunt,’ will have fans divided along much less concrete lines.
Watain fans will be rejoicing this summer with the band’s new album ‘The Wild Hunt’ arriving in August. After getting an early taste of the record on a Saturday afternoon at Duff’s in Brooklyn, we had the privilege of talking to frontman Erik Danielsson, who spoke all about the new disc, as well as its lengthy writing and recording process.
There’s no better way to spend a Saturday afternoon in Brooklyn than blasting some serious metal. In an intimate gathering, right below a daycare center which was having a birthday party, metal heads relaxed in their dark metal haven that is Duff's bar while listening to Watain’s forthcoming album ‘The Wild Hunt,’ due out Aug. 20 via Century Media.
