To celebrate the ten cursed years of madness and magic that have passed since Swedish black metal tyrants WATAIN crawled out of their molten caskets, Season of Mist is now releasing their first two full length albums, Casus Luciferi and Rabid Death’s Curse on digipack CD’s, respectively on next October 13th and 27th.
Both albums have been remastered in Necromorbus Studio were they were originally recorded, and will also feature two rare bonus-tracks, one being the title-track from the bands debut 7″ EP The Essence of Black Purity and the other an unreleased live-version of the VON anthem, “Watain.” Both releases will also include extensive liner notes from the band along with additional photos and illustrations.
“WATAIN‘s first two albums have both been hailed as monumental and groundbreaking within the underground for their undeniably magical content and fanatic intensity, yet they are also considered collectors items which to this day are still hard to come by”, leader Erik states. “As WATAIN never wanted their divine art to be something restricted for collectors and rich eBay kids only, we have now chosen to reveal to all of the world our dark and fiery past. A past that came to shape one of the most terrible abominations ever to stalk the Metal scene!”
