The Great Southern Brainfart recently conducted an interview with Erik Danielsson of Swedish black metallers WATAIN. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

The Great Southern Brainfart: So I have to be honest. Aside from listening to VENOM as a kid, I was never much of a black metal fan, and then I gave you guys a listen, and I’m really intrigued with your songs and your performances.

Erik: That is really good to hear that you made that comparison. I wish I heard VENOM and WATAIN in the same sentence more often. VENOM is one of my all-time favorite bands, and I think if you have that sort of background, you might actually be able to relate to what we do as well. Musically, there might be a slight difference. VENOM are the originators of the black metal movement that we later became a part and we like carrying that torch onwards and uphold that legacy.

The Great Southern Brainfart: WATAIN seems to have more of that classic element than most of the other modern bands. Is that something that was intentional?

Erik: We never really sat down and discussed how WATAIN should sound. It’s pretty safe to say, though, that our own personal preferences, when it comes to black metal, have always been very traditional. VENOM are one of the most important bands ever to WATAIN and the same goes for bands like MERCYFUL FATE and even bands like EXCITER, RAZOR, and VOIVOD. We’ve always leaned towards bands like that in our own musical tastes when it comes to metal. I suppose our sound really comes from a mix of those bands and late-era black metal such as MAYHEM and DISSECTION and so on.

The Great Southern Brainfart: One of the things that intrigued me the most about Watain was the ritualistic approach to the live show using animal carcasses, lighting candles on a small alter and whatnot. What can you tell me about the live show and the background to this ritual?

Erik: If you play music of a diabolical nature, and the music that you perform is permeated by a sinister and infernal essence, of course, that will have to translate to the stage show as well and your appearance. It’s not a process that should be forced. It should come as a natural consequence of the music that you’re playing and the artistic work that you are doing. With WATAIN, it was very much that way and it evolved into this thing that it is. When we started playing, we already had that kind of extreme view of how a black metal live show should be like. It should look like the music sounds. That’s how it all began. The longer that WATAIN existed, the more we realized that the magical side of this band, the spiritual side began to come through and it just began to transform into a ceremonial thing rather than just a rock concert, so to say. It evolved into an event where we communicate with the forces that gave birth to this band and that have always been a part of this band. It became a time where we could let these things just come to life and be at one with them. It’s an ever-ongoing evolution and the live shows are constantly progressing. They have become something more and more severe and intense and that’s a very good thing to me. It’s a very inspiring context to work with.

The Great Southern Brainfart: When WATAIN takes this ceremony on the road, especially when touring in the southern part of the U.S., sometimes there are limits as to what you can and can’t do on the stage. When that does happen, how much of an impact does that have on the purpose of your live performance? Does it make things harder for you to do?

Erik: Yes, of course it does, but being in a band like WATAIN is always quite a challenge. When you take something as inhuman as WATAIN into the world, then, of course, things can be a bit strange. We knew since day one that we would have to face a lot of opposition because of some of the things we wanted to do. I think we’re always pretty well prepared for that to happen. Of course, it’s annoying and it makes me want to punch the living shit out of anyone who stands in our way, but we always find a way around these things. There’s always a way for the devil to come through, no matter what. It cannot be stopped. It’s just a fact and it’s been that way since the dawn of man. The devil always wins and the devil always finds his way. I think that in general, all of that opposition and all of the people who prevent us from doing what we want to do just makes us stronger. It makes us feel more proud and stronger about what we’re doing. We like to fight against the extreme and we like to go against the current. We like to be the enemy and that just fuels the fire of WATAIN and I actually appreciate that. I like touring in places especially the South because we always feel that tension and how skeptical they are but in the end we just do what the fuck we do anyway. [laughs]

Black metal veterans GORGOROTH have entered the studio to begin recording their next album, “Instinctus Bestialis”, for an early 2014 release. The recording lineup for the new CD will consist of Infernus (guitar), Tomas Asklund (drums; ex-DISSECTION, DARK FUNERAL), Bøddel (a.k.a. Frank Watkins, bass, ex-OBITUARY), and new vocalist Atterigner from the Serbian band TRIUMFALL.

“Under The Sign Of Hell 2011″, the re-recording of GORGOROTH‘s third album, was made available in 2011.

On “Under The Sign Of Hell 2011″, Pest and Infernus repeated their roles as vocalist and guitarist/bassist, respectively, from the original 1996 recording, while Tomas Asklund handled the drums.

GORGOROTH‘s ninth album, “Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt”, was released on October 21, 2009 in Europe via Regain Records. The CD, which was made available in the U.S. on November 11, 2009, was recorded at Monolith Studio and featured Infernus on guitar, OBITUARY‘s Frank Watkins on bass, Pest on vocals and Asklund on drums.

“Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt” was produced by Infernus and co-produced/engineered by Tomas Asklund. It was mastered at the Cutting Room in Stockholm.

Unique Leader Records has announced the signing of ALTERBEAST to a multi-album deal.

ALTERBEAST is a technical death metal band hailing from Sacramento, California, formed in 2011 under the name GARY BUSEY AMBER ALERT (GBAA). ALTERBEAST quickly began writing songs, combining influences from favorites such as THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, NECROPHAGIST and SPAWN OF POSSESSION, along with numerous other classic death metal acts like DISSECTION and MORBID ANGEL. After a year of dedicated writing, ALTERBEAST released a demo in the winter of 2012 and played countless shows alongside such greats as DEICIDE, DYING FETUS, TESTAMENT, REVOCATION, EXHUMED, SEVERED SAVIOR and many others. They soon began gaining momentum in the death metal community and became known for their intense riffs, blistering drums, elaborate guitar solos and a very developed stage show.

One year after releasing their demo, they entered Augmented Audio at Sound Temple Studios to record their debut album, “Immortal”, with former THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams engineering. After recording at Sound Temple, the band acquired Gabe Seeber (THE KENNEDY VEIL) for drum duties. Deciding that it was a must to have Gabe‘s talents on this record, ALTERBEAST booked time at Castle Ultimate with engineer Zack Ohren to record drums and mix and master.

Due in early 2014, “Immortal” will consist of eight tracks of extreme, melodic, brutal, and uncompromising death metal.

Deathbound Records has announced the signing of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada’s NOIRE. The band’s debut album, “Dark Reverence”, will be made available on October 1.

NOIRE, a progressive black metal band founded in 2012 by Andrew Lawes (vocals, guitar and piano) and Bob Fitzgerald (guitar), was joined by Derrick Kroll (drums) and Craig Peeples (bass) in 2012. The band has since embarked on a path to extoll the beauty of the lightless side of music.

Not afraid to wear its influences on their sleeves, NOIRE draws inspiration from bands such as DISSECTION, OPETH, ENSLAVED and EMPEROR, unleashing brooding twin-guitar harmonies, thunderous drum work, intelligent bass lines and snarling vocals to create an atmosphere that is uniquely their own.

Having opened for bands such as ABSU, NOIRE has convinced audiences that they are serious about their music and well poised to become one of the most interesting acts to emerge from the scene.

“The Wild Hunt”, the new album from Swedish black metallers WATAIN, has registered the following first-week chart positions:

Sweden: #1
Germany: #18
USA: #158

As a special gift to dedicated fans, a free download of the b-side from the “All That May Bleed” seven-inch single is now available. Entitled “Play With The Devil”, this b-side was originally recorded by the black/heavy metal band TAIWAZ in 1988, in WATAIN‘s hometown of Uppsala (Gottfrid Åhman from IN SOLITUDE participates on solo guitar in WATAIN‘s version).

To download “Play With The Devil”, visit TheWildHunt.se.

Comments WATAIN frontman Erik Danielsson: “It’s always a special feeling to release an album with WATAIN; to let the levee break and have the hungry waters gush forth again, swallowing everything in its way. Hail to all of our supporters who gave the release of ‘The Wild Hunt’ the attention and dignity it deserves! See you on the long and winding road that now lies ahead of us.”

“The Wild Hunt” sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD was released on August 19 in Europe and August 20 in USA via the band’s own label His Master’s Noise through Century Media Records.

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. 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 frontman Erik Danielsson puts it, “is just us being brutally personal and honest. It shows another important facet of the WATAIN world.”

Executed in oil and mixed materials, the cover of “The Wild Hunt” was created by Zbigniew M Bielak, the very same artist who was responsible for the “Lawless Darkness” artwork. The piece depicts one of the inmost shrines of WATAIN‘s temple. As on every classic still life, each object has a significant meaning, while each song of the album is also connected to an object.

* limited-edition CD mediabook

Century Media Records recently conducted an interview with Erik Danielsson of Swedish black metallers WATAIN. You can now watch the chat below.

WATAIN‘s new album, “The Wild Hunt”, will be released on August 19 in Europe and August 20 in USA via the band’s own label His Master’s Noise through Century Media Records.

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. 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 frontman Erik Danielsson puts it, “is just us being brutally personal and honest. It shows another important facet of the WATAIN world.”

Executed in oil and mixed materials, the cover of “The Wild Hunt” was created by Zbigniew M Bielak, the very same artist who was responsible for the “Lawless Darkness” artwork. The piece depicts one of the inmost shrines of WATAIN‘s temple. As on every classic still life, each object has a significant meaning, while each song of the album is also connected to an object.

“The Wild Hunt” will be released worldwide in the following formats (see below for product details and availability):

* standard CD jewelcase
* limited-edition CD mediabook
* 2LP, 180gr black vinyl
