WATAIN | New Single 'Serimosa' Available!

Right before the start of their extensive US tour with Norwegian peers Mayhem, notorious Swedish black metal collective Watain has unveiled 'Serimosa' - the second single from their upcoming new studio album, The Agony & Ecstasy Of Watain, which will be released on 29th April, 2022. 

'Serimosa' sees a shift in pace from its furious predecessor 'The Howling', heading towards more of a gloomy and Gothic landscape, yet bearing the unmistakable black mark of Watain. Lyrically, its contemporary acuteness and prophetic quality is just as unnerving as it is comforting.

E. Danielsson  (vocals) comments,
"Serimosa tells of the electric notion of the coming of a great power. The appearance of cracks in the dam that holds the flood of the great sea. A visitor from the beyond, crossing the threshold into the material world.
Just like "Watain" - "Serimosa" is a word/name of power communicated out of unknown origin, appearing into the world sans history, to be approached with thought and reverence. Its linguistic root may be traced from the Latin word Seri ("serum") along with Dolorosa ("pain") Nebulosa ("starfog") Lacrimosa ("tearfilled"), as if those words and their meanings were spoken as one. In her hand she holds the stern light of renewal, of transformation, of merciless cleansing. Thematically, Serimosa also holds similarities to the fiery Samhara aspect of Nataraja, the doomsday dance of Shiva marking the dissolution of order at the end of an eon.
May she bring you far and deep."

Watain  crawled out of Satan’s **** in 1998, and have since then ascended and grown into one of the world’s most well known and notorious Black Metal bands. Their legacy is often referred to with fear, love, confusion or awe, but seldom with indifference.
 
Their infamous live shows have become a worldwide phenomenon; inimitable ceremonies of wild Black Metal fanatism where the sacred and solemn collides with raw unadulterated force. With their greatly anticipated seventh studio album,  Watain  continues to arouse and electrify their audience with an unmistakable, adventurous brand of Black Metal Magic, processed and distilled over the course of a 25-year long history.
 
Recorded live by long time collaborator  Tore Stjerna  in his infamous  Necromorbus studio , now re-located to an old church on the Swedish countryside,  The Agony & Ecstasy of Watain  takes the listener one huge step closer to the innermost heart of a band that despite always being surrounded by rumors and controversy has always strived for a most sincere and genuine form of expression.
 
With 10 songs written by the founding trinity of  Watain  ( E. Danielsson H. Jonsson  and  P. Forsberg ), it is also the first  Watain  album to be recorded live with a full line-up completed by  A. Lillo, H. Eriksson  and  E. Forcas .
 
The material is further enriched by noble contributions from  Farida Lemouchi  (ex.  The Devil’s Blood , now in  Molasses s) and  Gottfrid Åhman  (ex.  In Solitude , now in  PÅGÅ ).
 
The lyrics, always a central aspect of every  Watain  album, range from manic proselytism to profound contemplation on the relativity between life and death, sacred and profane, holy and unholy, agony and ecstasy, eagerly excavating the winding depths of mind and spirit with a new sense of clarity and determination.
 
Characterized by a morbid sense of beauty mingled with raw primal force,  Watain  is the wolf that keeps hunting, fearless and free, in the dark night of man.
