MAYHEM & WATAIN Australian Tour Announced


When it comes to the definitive history of black metal, only one name has survived all the sensationalism. Through the church burnings, murder, imprisonments and myopic teenage nationalism, only MAYHEM has been able to channel the circus like atmosphere, which surrounded a core of fanatical bands, into a sustained musical career, in the studio and more importantly, on stage. The year 2014 presents 30 years of cold, harsh existence, and MAYHEM reappear in Australia to regain the throne of darkness that is rightfully theirs. Featuring iconic members Atilla Csihar, Necrobutcher and Hellhammer, and with the reputation of being one of the most controversial live acts to ever disgrace this planet, do not miss out on this chance to witness and worship one of the true Norwegian black metal legends in the flesh.

WATAIN, have been added to MAYHEM’S 30th Anniversary Australian tour for January 2014, making for the purist and bleakest black metal package of a lifetime for Australian metal audiences.
Musically fuelled by forefathers such as Venom, Bathory, Metallica and Mercyful Fate, and spiritually fuelled by the lawless will of the liberated spirit, WATAIN is that dangerous flame of Metal that seemed lost for many years, and that now once again has been set loose upon the dying world. Taking things to the next step – whatever the costs are. This has always been WATAIN’s goal from day one and this has never been truer than with “The Wild Hunt”, their fifth full-length album and out now!

Watain had this to say via social media  –

Watain and Mayhem will join forces on a tour across Australia in January 2014. We are looking forward immensely to return to a place where from which some of the most malevolent music and uncompromising artists have emerged. The performances will be held at clubs and will show Watain in its most raw and primal form.
