Watain are back for real, bringing more Lawless Darkness for us all. Let the devils and their extras take you already. The coffee tastes like blood at the 11th circle of Hell - construction expected to finish within the next millennium. We could use the space.

If the rest of the album is like The Howling it's gonna be a bomb!

I never liked bands music, lyrics, attitude, philosophy,, image, black metal disidentic loners from archaic days. Now this time softer sounding album whit some calmer ideas. But stil this band won't be mine.

I agree on the image, I've always thought of this band as sort of a parody of black metal.

They think they are tr00 but they are posers, after first scandinavian bands, bm actually became much better and much atracive.

It's good, but somehow not as good as I expected it to be, I'm getting some seriously strong Sworn To The Dark vibes from this, but it lacks the quality, and is short of the memorable moments that album had. There is definitely a sinisterness about Watain that is unmatched, I've always liked the rawness to their sound, and I've noticed a slight vibe of the later Necrophoic sound too, only with less melodic riffs.

I can't say I'm that impressed by every song, but my stand outs are "Before The Cataclysm", and "We Remain".

I wander why so many people consider them to be posers? What's the point? I mean not but that I'm saying they are the best but their first four albums are quite worthy

For me, it’s the dated and gimmicky stage presence, the over the top theatrics and “rituals”. The edgy attempt at borderline-nazi stuff (this album cover for sample) is also eye-roll inducing, They come off like they’re trying way too hard.

I agree, those first vave bands are posers, kids what wanna be loners and trOO evil person what lives in a woods, and eat bear shit as sallad in a evenings.
Anti all same time band has social media and so on, just created but still band lives in Uppsala and (even I checked where he lives in a google,) still. Their image maybe is made for few, but if this band wanish bm wont die,
