Watain: The Wild Hunt enters the charts
WATAIN entered their national Swedish album charts on #1 with their new album "The Wild Hunt". And even in the second week it's still on #5! German fans helped WATAIN to achieve their first ever German chart entry on position #18. In The US the album entered #158 in the Billboard Top 200.
The band played their album release show last Saturday in their hometown Uppsala in Sweden. The sold-out show was a feast of blood, sweat and fire - a night to remember.
As a special gift to dedicated fans you can get a free download of the b-side from the "All That May Bleed" 7" single that came out on Summer Solstice, June 21st, 2013. The Side B is a track called "Play with the Devil" originally recorded by the Black/Heavy Metal band Taiwaz in 1988, in WATAIN's hometown
Uppsala. Gottfrid Åhman from In Solitude participates on solo guitar in WATAIN's version. In many means a very special song. You can download "Play with the Devil" at http://thewildhunt.se
WATAIN's own label His Master's Noise and their partner Century Media Records thank all of you dedicated fans.
E. from WATAIN: "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."
