WATAIN | premiere video for new single ‘We Remain’ feat. Farida Lemouchi



    Today, notorious Swedish black metal collective Watain are proud to unveil the third and final single from their upcoming new studio album, The Agony & Ecstasy Of Watain, which will be released on April 29th 2022.

    The song is called ‘We Remain’ and it represents the deepest shadow of the album, a profound contemplation on the winding abyss of the past. Fearlessly extending across the known borders of Watain‘s musical wilderness, ‘We Remain‘ also features noble contributions by Farida Lemouchi (ex. The Devil’s Blood, Molassess) and Gottfrid Åhman (ex. In Solitude, PÅGÅ).

    The video for ‘We Remain was directed by Johan Bååth who has been documenting Watain‘s journey through the world for many years.

    Erik Danielsson (vocals) comments:
    “I begun writing “We Remain” in 2012, as a meditation on the concept of Mythopoeia; our mythical origins and how our understanding and approach to them is shaped and transformed throughout time. The lyric is built around the five elemental wings of the Pentagram, and the mysteries embedded in that ancient symbol. It is a song about forgotten things that ought to be remembered, the search for truths that were lost, of the ever burning flame that illuminates the darkness of times immemorial, the passing of aeons and and our ponderable place therein.”

    Watain crawled out of Satan’s **** in 1998, and have since then ascended and grown into one of the world’s most well known and notorious Black Metal bands. Their legacy is often referred to with fear, love, confusion or awe, but seldom with indifference.

    Their infamous live shows have become a worldwide phenomenon; inimitable ceremonies of wild Black Metal fanatism where the sacred and solemn collides with raw unadulterated force. With their greatly anticipated seventh studio album, Watain continues to arouse and electrify their audience with an unmistakable, adventurous brand of Black Metal Magic, processed and distilled over the course of a 25-year long history.

    Recorded live by long time collaborator Tore Stjerna in his infamous Necromorbus studio, now re-located to an old church on the Swedish countryside, The Agony & Ecstasy of Watain takes the listener one huge step closer to the innermost heart of a band that despite always being surrounded by rumors and controversy has always strived for a most sincere and genuine form of expression.

    With 10 songs written by the founding trinity of Watain (E. Danielsson, H. Jonsson and P. Forsberg), it is also the first Watain album to be recorded live with a full line-up completed by A. Lillo, H. Eriksson and E. Forcas.

    The material is further enriched by noble contributions from Farida Lemouchi (ex. The Devil’s Blood, now in Molassess) and Gottfrid Åhman (ex. In Solitude, now in PÅGÅ).

    The lyrics, always a central aspect of every Watain album, range from manic proselytism to profound contemplation on the relativity between life and death, sacred and profane, holy and unholy, agony and ecstasy, eagerly excavating the winding depths of mind and spirit with a new sense of clarity and determination.

    Characterized by a morbid sense of beauty mingled with raw primal force, Watain is the wolf that keeps hunting, fearless and free, in the dark night of man.
