New WATAIN Track Now Streaming

Wednesday, 17th July 2013

In anticipation of the album’s release, Swedish black metal horde WATAIN are now unleashing yet another new track from forthcoming full-length, The Wild Hunt, which is due out August 19 in Europe and August 20 in North America. “The Child Must Die” is available for streaming below.

WATAIN comments: “‘The Child Must Die’ is a song of sorrow and liberation, of the sacrifices that the path of adversity requires. Musically it shows yet another side of The Wild Hunt, being more Heavy Metal-rooted perhaps than ‘All That May Bleed’.”

For another preview of The Wild Hunt, be sure to check out the album’s first single, “All That May Bleed”, which is now available for purchase as a digital download at iTunes and as an exclusive 7″ at CM Distro.

Produced once again by Tore Stjerna at his Necromorbus studio in Alvik (Sweden), The Wild Hunt is a sonic and lyrical tour-de-force that explores WATAIN’s roots, such as BATHORY and DISSECTION, while also remaining truly unique, according to a press release. Having lost none of their integrity, WATAIN continues to push the boundaries of the scene with their fifth full-length, refusing to compromise their sound and vision. Amid the tracks teeming with the band’s classic sound, The Wild Hunt also features clean vocals (a first for the trio!) which, as front-man Erik puts it, “…is just us being brutally personal and honest. It shows another important facet of the WATAIN world.” As this new album will soon prove, WATAIN truly lives in a world all their own.
