Watain will be releasing their highly anticipated new album, “The Wild Hunt,” on August 19th in Europe and August 20th in USA via Century Media Records. This past weekend we were invited to the Official Listening Party at Duff’s Brooklyn, and front man, Erik Danielsson, was there in attendance as well! As each song played through the speakers, I was amazed at what I was hearing. Watain is known for writing incredible records, but “The Wild Hunt” is unbelievably powerful! From the songwriting, to the lyrics, to production, this is one of the best albums I’ve heard in a long time! Yes, “Lawless Darkness” seemed to be untouchable to a lot of fans, but in my opinion, “The Wild Hunt” is a true masterpiece, and will have people talking for a long time!
After “The Wild Hunt” listening party was complete, I got to speak with Erik on the new material, future touring plans, the band’s legacy and much more! Check out the chat below and start counting down until August 20th here in the States! “The Wild Hunt” is coming!
