Watain Competition – Win Tickets For Tour Which Starts Thursday OR A Copy Of Their Latest Album

As we reported a few months ago, hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed album The Wild Hunt, Black Metal behemoths Watain are touring the UK this December, starting off in Louder Than War’s home patch of Manchester this Thursday. And to celebrate, we’re running a Watain.

For those of you still in the dark (appropriately – lolz), Watain are arguably the biggest Black metal band on the planet. They’ve dubbed this current tour of the UK the ‘Black Death’ tour and it promises to be a bit special. As we wrote when first reporting the news:

A plague is about to be unleashed upon Europe. It will spread without remorse or pity, leaving in its foul wake the stench of death and fire.

It goes without saying the above is a good thing and pls ignore those who infer otherwise.

The band themselves have promised us that:

“It will be with the dead of winter that we shall come hunting through Europe again. By then the dry heat of summer will be long gone, moistened by gasoline and tears, ready to explode into a storm of panic and euphoria, death and metal, war and pain, sodomy and lust! So gather yourselves and prepare, forbidden fires and unearthly lights shall illuminate the winter nights…”

Fans of the band will be descending on the city of Manchester for the first leg of the tour from miles around (Louder Than War ourselves are travelling up from Bristol and over from York for it) and expectations are stupendously high. Indeed, if we aren’t made to feel the pull of Satanic currents and dragged towards damnation as promised we’ll be very disappointed.

The full UK tour is taking in the following venues:

  • 05.12.2013 – Manchester, Academy 2, UK
  • 06.12.2103 – Glasgow, Garage, UK
  • 07.12.2013 – Birmingham, The Library, UK
  • 08.12.2013 – London, Electric Ballroom, UK

Tickets are on sale for the tour from all the usual outlets, and failing your having a ‘usual outlet’ you can go here: kililive.com/artists/watain/.
