The Wild Hunt (Century Media Records)
release date: 8/20/2013
by Mike Delano

Sweden's black metal hellions Watain have been on a fearsome tear for the better part of the last decade, releasing back-to-back killer albums, Sworn to the Dark (2007) and Lawless Darkness (2010). This year's The Wild Hunt finds them expanding their ambition with ballads and other left turns, but that adventurous spirit creeps into all of their songs. The grand, galloping of "The Child Must Die" shows that the blastbeat/rinse-and-repeat black metal template of old is simply too constraining for these wide-eyed wanderers.

This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
