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.
