Swedish black metal collective WATAIN today offer up the second in a series of trailers from their upcoming Opus Diaboli anniversary DVD. The production commemorates the band’s 13 years of chaos by providing a visual and audio documentation of their ceremonial anniversary concert performance in Stockholm and the long years of physical, intellectual and spiritual work leading up to it. Opus Diaboli is an epic 90-minute journey into the forbidden realms of wild-hearted Satanic metal and the manifestation of a unique band that has truly chosen a path few have ever dared to tread upon. In addition, Opus Diaboli marks the the first release on WATAIN’s own label His Master’s Noise, a name originating from Bathory who had it in mind for their own label back in the early 1980s. Opus Diaboli will be unleashed in North America on June 5, 2012.
Check out the latest two-plus minute trailer, hosted exclusively by Decibel Magazine, as well as some words from vocalist Erik Danielsson about the production, at THIS LOCATION.
WATAIN are currently spreading their Satanic rituals throughout the lands on the inaugural Decibel Magazine Tour alongside Behemoth, The Devil’s Blood and In Solitude. Additionally, the band will further decimate the masses with five more headlining dates which will include stops in Poughkeepsie, New York, Cleveland, Ohio, Joliet, Illinois, Columbus, Ohio and Detroit, Michigan. For these shows, the band will perform as a four piece, with Danielsson doing guitar and vocals.
