Posted in Black Metal, black metal bands, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on September 1, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Watain - The Wild Hunt - promo album flyer - 2013 - #1

As reported on the Facebook page of Century Media Records:

Swedish black metal act WATAIN entered their national Swedish album charts on #1 with their new album “The Wild Hunt”. And even in the second week it’s still on #5! German fans helped WATAIN to achieve their first ever German chart entry on position #18. In The US the album entered #158 in the Billboard Top 200.

As a special gift to dedicated fans you can get a free download of the b-side track “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 in WATAIN’s version. In many means a very special song. You can download “Play with the Devil” at http://thewildhunt.se/

Watain - The Wild Hunt - promo cover pic

As reported/written on the WATAIN Facebook page:

“We want to thank all of you who have contributed to the splendour and ruthless victory that marked the release of The Wild Hunt. Those who attended the opening ceremony in Uppsala, who bought the album, who respectfully wrote or in any other way expressed their appreciation for it, who came with gifts and tokens of gratitude, who spread the word and lit new fires across the world.

And so the gates have once again been opened, within and without. A long and winding road lies ahead of us now, and where it will lead we do not yet know. But we look forward to join forces with all of you deathfiends, sons of hades, daughters of the night, outlaws and Wataniacs, who know as well as we that this hunt shall darken the few pages of history that remain…

For night has fallen upon the earth now, but the many fires that were lit at the dawn of this new era can be seen from far away, from beyond the borders of the world, where hungry eyes are ever watching…

By the fires of Satan we salute thee!”

WATAIN – World Wide Death – Band Issues Year End Update

Posted in Black Metal, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on January 3, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

In a year end message from Swedish black metal legion, WATAIN: “North and South America have now been left in ashes, and with that the Lawless Darkness Tour 2010 is over. Hail to those who made it possible, and those who made it even more triumphant; North: Watain Disciples USA, Goatwhore, Black Anvil, Decibel Magazine, Liz and Dave at Earsplit, Jimmy and the Duff’s crew, Josh at Dean Guitars, Engl Amps, Black Witchery, Negative Plane, Averse Sefira, Hod. South: Arma Productions, Hells Angels Antofagasta, Careloco and The Chilean Watain Militia, Kythrone, the mighty Mortuary Drape, the Tumba crew, and all those whose presence strengthened us along the long and winding road through hell and back. You know who you are. A special mention to S.L of The Devil’s Blood who took on the lead guitar duties in North America; hail brother! Finally, a thunderous salute to our iron crew, without whom none of this would have been possible.

To view a clip from Swedish TV (with English subtitles) about WATAIN‘s appearance at the Sweden Rock festival in June earlier this year, point your browser
HERE. The concert was aired on the Swedish national radio program P3-Live on Thursday December 23rd. 

And it is that time of the year again, when the media compile their lists and distribute awards. WATAIN has received the following awards and nominations for 2010:

 

#1 Album Of The Year – Close Up Magazine
#1 Album Of The Year – Sweden Rock Magazine
#1 Band Of The Year – Terrorizer Readers Poll
#1 Personality Of The Year – Terrorizer Readers Poll
#2 Album Of The Year – Decibel Magazine 

WATAIN have also been nominated for:

 

“Hardrock” Category of the Swedish Grammy Awards
“Hardrock” Category of the P3 Gold Awards
“Nordic Album 2010” of the Nordic Music Price Awards

In light of all this, we would like you to contemplate upon the following lines:
“It is the magic combination of fierceness and beauty that makes the Wolf an exception even in nature. Revered outlaws, feared in their bestial nature, yet also objects of fascination and curiosity, of naturally inhabited and unreachable grace, that men love to hate, and hate to love. But regardless of what judgement the vox populi might pass on the nighttime predators, they remain just that; a rare breed of hunters; alone, aside, untamed, always hungry…”
