The NYC Metal scene is going to get a little bit blacker in the heat of June as the malevolence that is known as Watain sets their sights on Brooklyn for a single show that marks their only US appearance for 2014. You can check out the official press copy after the foreboding poster that broadcasts the event
“On Sunday, June 15th at the Brooklyn Bazaar, Swedish black metal tyrants WATAIN will ascend upon New York, this time with their infamous stage show entirely uncompromised! Expect a harsh and wild ceremony of blood, fire and death… Presented by The Bunce Group, Brooklyn Bazaar, Blackened Music Series and Northside Festival, this special appearance will be WATAIN’s only US show this summer, so be sure to attend! WATAIN will be playing in support of their critically acclaimed fifth full-length, The Wild Hunt, which was unleashed last year worldwide via Century Media Records (I’ve embedded a link for that below the narrative). For a preview of WATAIN’s “most daring album yet” (Decibel Magazine).
June 15 – The Brooklyn Bazaar, Brooklyn NY
Having seen the fierce presentation that is a Watain show a few times over the years I can honestly say that it is an experience that you will not soon forget. The band is also lauding the fact that they will be delivering their full no holds barred show and that is something that is not for everyone – trust me. That said, if you consider yourself a fan of the darker side of Metal then you will want to get a ticket to this before it sells out and since this is a one night only kind of thing with no lengthy tour I would be surprised if any tickets are available when the week begins in a couple of days. I know that I am going to look into being there to report on it should the schedule be open for me to do so. If I go I hope to see a lot of you there
Here’s the latest batch of music from Watain including their acclaimed release on Century Media Records “The Wild Hunt”.
