Staff review by

So with much anticipation, stoked by a three year wait and the crazed proclamations of E. Andersson, Watain have released Lawless Darkness, the follow-up to the crushing Sworn To The Dark.

I'm not sure if this is going to live up to the hype provided by their outspoken front man, who is to pre-album proclamations what Morbid Angel's Trey Azagthoth is to batshit crazy liner notes… the album has been out a couple weeks and no fires raining from the sky Satamic apocalypse have befallen us.

Very enjoyable release, but reminds too much of Dark Funeral

yea it is reminiscent of DF but i feel this album is more complex and varied compared to DF worx

The last three Watain's albums it's really noteworthy experience.

Sure, but "Casus Luciferi" is by far their best imho.

Possibly, but "the best" is a relative term. I prefer to treat this as a very successful trilogy.

Rating: 7 Very good and strong release, thought I do prefer the new album The Wild Hunt after listening to it.

Rating: 7 A tad to long perhaps. The closer is magnificent. And the chants in Four Thrones.
