“The only way to create something of true beauty of this world is to look beyond its borders…to search outside of the mundane…to step into the realm of liberated wilderness, untamed fire and that ancient chaos to which every true and potent artist has been mouthpiece.” ~ Watain quote.
Watain captures a sort of magical chaos in their performances and music. Like a shaman, they go beyond the boundaries of the mundane to bring us – the audience – into the realm of the unknown. This is a band that has musical skill, but also knows how to this power onto the stage and put on an unforgettable performance. The above song captures the spirit of this anarchy, the feeling of what it is like to be an outlaw. True brilliance will always exist on the fringes of society, not within its borders. This is why many tribal shamans lived outside the tribe, so they could bring wisdom from a different place – a place beyond the accepted norm. So enjoy this musical chaos, this black metal pandemonium.
