Watain, Mayhem to cap off year with second leg of North American tour

Posted by on July 20, 2015

The stench of rotting animal carcasses was in the air earlier this year as Mayhem and Watain toured together. The union of two of Norway and Sweden’s most notorious black metal bands must have proven to be a solid one, as the two announced a second North American leg of the tour. This time they’ll be joined by Rotting Christ for a tour that kicks off during the first week of November and lasts until the end of the month. Here’s what Watain’s Erik has to say about the tour, which will end their touring cycle behind The Wild Hunt:

“As with every album tour, it is always towards the end that the all the ingredients of our performances melt together properly and become most powerful. The Black Metal Warfare tour was a very special project for us and I am very pleased we get to end our Wild Hunt in the US with this second leg, with such a legendary package and in front of our ever faithful US militias! While Black Metal Warfare part II is of course a continuation of the first one, quite a few surprises can be expected, both in terms of the setlists as well as on the stage itself. All that is certain is that November shall wail and reek of burning, blistering, banging, bloody Black Metal War! A victorious ending before it’s time to yet again embark on the ever winding paths into the great unknown…”
