Watain (Sweden): “The Wild Hunt” (Century Media)
Watain (Sweden): “The Wild Hunt” (Century Media) Are you willing to hear Watain go in any musical direction, including a ballad called “They Rode on,” which lasts almost nine minutes? It is Watain’s version of “Nothing Else Matters.” It is a ballad through and through. If you absolutely insist that Watain be black metal, and you are sure that that is how you feel, then this is bad, bad news for you. Avoid, or you will be very, very angry; and you know how you get when you are angry. Nobody likes you.
