Masters of black metal and reveered in their genre, Watain have decided that the time is now to begin work on their next album. The band have remarked about their journey to begin the process in typically cryptic fashion:
“Since the harvest, we have been occupied with preparations for a long and hard journey. Seeds have been sown, blades have been sharpened and new fires have been lit to illuminate the untrodden tunnels that lay before us as we descend further down the maze..."
Watain have returned to Necromorbus Studio to begin work on what will be their fifth full length studio album and their first since Lawless Darkness three years ago. Watain are tentatively looking at an August 2013 release date for the album. The album will be released through Century Media Records.
