Watain Rabid Death's Curse on Limited Edition LP + Download Card
As any Black Metal fan knows, Sweden's Watain have stormed from the hellish pits of the underground onto the covers of the biggest Metal magazines worldwide. Their latest masterpiece Lawless Darkness (2010) was praised by critics and fans alike, scored a massive number of highest grades and went on to collect many "album of the year" titles and top list entries.
Combining servere blackness with melodies and beauty of the darkest kind, Watain keeps the raw underground spirit burning! Watain is truly one of the best and most dangerous metal bands in the world, their name strikes awe in fans and peers alike, the insanity of their live shows is unparalleled in all of modern metal.
To celebrate a band that critics have called "the most important Black Metal act of the decade," Season of Mist is re-releasing the Swedes' complete full-length back catalog on vinyl including Rabid Death's Curse (2000), Casus Luciferi (2003), Sworn to the Dark (2007) and Lawless Darkness (2010). All albums have been painstakingly remastered to keep the original spirit of intent. Rabid Death's Curse, Casus Luciferi and Lawless Darkness also include bonus tracks.
Clawing their way out of the Black Metal underground yet firmly remaining a part of it since their founding in 1998, the Swedes have become a major player in the dark genre. Watain established themselves as a phenomenon of the most sinister kind as soon as their 7" EP The Essence of Black Purity was released in 1999. Watain's acclaimed debut Rabid Death's Curse followed only a year later in 2000.
The trio from Uppsala immediately gained a massive following by their merciless devotion and intense live rituals imbued with blood, fire and magic. Recorded in the chambers of Necromorbus studios, which owes a large part of its current fame and status to the trio, relentless Black/Death Metal lunacy Rabid Death's Curse was received with a roar of appreciation from the worldwide underground. Gatefold black vinyl reissue with the bonus track "The Essence of Black Purity" and download card.
