Watain to Release 13th Anniversary DVD

Watain to Release 13th Anniversary DVD

Watain have been keeping it brutal for 13 years now, and in true Satanic black metal form, they have decided to release a DVD to commemorate this special year. The DVD, titled Opus Diaboli, features Watain’s anniversary concert in Stockholm as well as the work leading up to the momentous event. About the upcoming release of Opus Diaboli, the band stated:

“This movie was first meant to be the recording of our 13-year anniversary concert, but as everything with WATAIN, it took on a life of its own and become one of our most ambitious projects to date. It is a very personal and emotional piece of work and is certainly not for the faint of heart. But for those who wish to explore the glimmering abyss of WATAIN further, this will be a rewarding release for sure.”

Opus Diaboli will be available to North American markets on Watain’s official merch site on June 5, 2012, and on a purely unrelated note, my birthday is just a couple of weeks later…

Aaaaaanyhow, Watain are about to embark on the Decibel Magazine Tour with Behemoth, The Devil’s Blood and In Solitude. If you’re an East Coaster like me, you may not have known the name of the tour but you knew that Overkill was headlining a NYC show on the same day as Watain & co. are slated to roll through…we’re not bitter or anything…anymore. At any rate, check out the rest of the tour dates and gear up for a road trip if you must!
