Watain - "Outlaw" Video

Even among Scandinavian black metal bands, Watain have a particularly striking, powerful, and original visual aesthetic, so it’s hard to believe they’re only now — on their fifth album — releasing their first video. “Outlaw” is one of the heavier (and better) tracks from the August release The Wild Hunt, and while the video is blurry and grainy as hell (intentionally so), it really does capture the coolest elements of the band’s psycho-fuck style. I didn’t see anything NSFW here, but if you’re not comfortable watching, say, American Horror Story, you might want to avoid this, too. To everyone else, I encourage you to check it out — it’s a really creepy video and an excellent song.

The Wild Hunt is out now via Century Media.

  1. What happened to the monthly Black Market posts? I liked those a lot and feel like I havent seen one in a while…

    • Thanks, Jack! We were in limbo for a minute, but we’ll be back next week with our list of the year’s best metal albums, and after that, we’ll return to our regular monthly publishing schedule, starting at the end of this month.

  2. Some of this looks like colonoscopy footage (no, seriously).
