Swedish black metallers Watain have officially signed to Nuclear Blast Records. The band has entered Necromorbus Studios (located inside of a church north of their hometown Uppsala) to record their new album, which marks the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Trident Wolf Eclipse.’ The new effort is scheduled to be released in spring of 2022.
The band says, “Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great reverence and infernal hunger alike that we now stand before the next chapter of Watain. Armed with the faith, force and fire accumulated during the Trident Wolf Eclipse era we are now entering terra incognita, to again face our inner selves and the ever expanding abyss that roars within. A few months of hard noble work lay ahead, and we could not be more ready for it. We are most eagerly looking forward to sharing the result with you all in the wild times to come. Until then: stay hungry, stay deviant, stay free and fuck the world!”
Jens Prüter, Head of A&R Europe at Nuclear Blast, adds, “I have always been fascinated how Watain build their own cosmos based on their primordial fire of will. It’s more than just music. It’s an universal experience of darkness and light. I first started working with Watain in 2013 and was thrilled to contribute then to their success and highest chart entries the band has ever had. It’s a pleasure to welcome them now to Nuclear Blast Records to continue accompanying their path – wherever it will take us because the path is the goal.”
