PostSubject: Watain re-release   Wed 30 Jul - 22:25

To celebrate the ten cursed years of madness and magic that have passed since Swedish Black Metal tyrants WATAIN crawled out of their molten caskets, Season of Mist is now releasing their first two full length albums, "Casus Luciferi" and "Rabid Death's Curse" on digipack CD's, respectively on next October 13th and 27th.

Both albums have been remastered in Necromorbus Studio were they were originally recorded, and will also feature two rare bonus-tracks, one being the title-track from the bands debut 7" EP "The Essence of Black Purity" and the other an unreleased live-version of the VON anthem, "Watain". Both releases will also include extensive liner notes from the band along with additional photos and illustrations.

"WATAIN's first two albums have both been hailed as monumental and groundbreaking within the underground for their undeniably magical content and fanatic intensity, yet they are also considered collectors items which to this day are still hard to come by", leader Erik states. "As WATAIN never wanted their divine art to be something restricted for collectors and rich eBay kids only, we have now chosen to reveal to all of the world our dark and fiery past. A past that came to shape one of the most terrible abominations ever to stalk the Metal scene!"

And things keep getting blacker... Season of Mist and Thunderdome Booking in association with Metal Maniacs and www.beyondthedarkhorizon.com announce the "Black Metal Magic - WATAIN North American Tour 2008".

Here's the official communiqué for the tour:

"The Werewolves of Satan return! After the infamous US tour with ANGELCORPSE in 2007, Sweden's Black Metal tyrants WATAIN once again set their dreaded course towards American shores, this time descending not only upon the East but also the South and West coasts. After the release of the monumentally acclaimed "Sworn to the Dark" in 2007, WATAIN have been out on the "Fuck the World" tour, reaching through Europe, North and South America, leaving a trail of blood, fire and tears behind. A tour which have given them the reputation of being an untamed whirlwind of blood and fire on stage, embodying every aspect of true, dangerous Metal. The "Black Metal Magic" tour in October will constitute the last dates of this monstrous crusade, spearheaded by one of the few bands within the Black Metal genre that still evokes true fear, hysteria, forbidden lust and raging chaos... WARNING: The performances of WATAIN are widely known to bring forth and include things that may not be appreciated by the average concert visitor. Unholy, disturbing things that have left scars on many a soul, but that have also enlightened and brought great pleasure to those whose hearts burn with the black fires of forbidden hunger. WATAIN is Black Metal Magic performed in the old and dreaded tradition. You have been warned."

Drakkar was obviously never informed about this but we suspected the intentions of the band since months.
We had a deal with Watain and they simply took the decision to cancel it. Of course, the band was really happy to get the money they received from Drakkar, but they wanted to get much more and sell back again the copyrights of these albums to $€a$on of Pi$$.
Drakkar has been totally ripped off by Watain, a band that we supported since their first demo cassette. Money and fame has more importance to their eyes than what we did for them. But well, that's the cruel law of the music market I would say. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
I wonder how far Watain will go in term of humiliation in order to get much more money and fame. To be continued... hahaha

What's the point? The mastering is all right...
I saw a kinda metalslut wearing a Watain t-shirt a few days ago, I thought "WTF". Watain are rockstars now.
