Watain: announces album formats for 'The Wild Hunt'
Watain:  announces album formats for 'The Wild Hunt'
Swedish black metallers WATAIN are set to release their new album, The Wild Hunt, on August 19th in Europe and August 20th in North America through the band's own label His Master's Noise via 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 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.

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
