This is fucking hotsy totsy shit right here, people.
Swedish black metal lords Watain will soon unleash a new DVD upon the masses called “Opus Diaboli.”
The DVD 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,” says a press release.
The DVD runs 90 minutes, and should come with a scratch and sniff back cover so people can enjoy the Watain live experience at home. The scratch and sniff could smell like sweaty metal dudes and a pork store.
“This movie was first meant to be the recording of our 13-year anniversary concert, but as everything with Watain, it took on a life of its own and become one of our most ambitious projects to date,” the band says.
“It is a very personal and emotional piece of work and is certainly not for the faint of heart. But for those who wish to explore the glimmering abyss of Watain further, this will be a rewarding release for sure. The box version of ‘Opus Diaboli’ contains an exclusive photobook. It was an overwhelming experience going through the massive archives in search of photos that best sum up the storm of passionate turmoil that has marked the Watain journey, especially since we wanted to stay away from live photos and focus more on moments off stage.
“The results were however very satisfying and offer a rare and spicy mixture of photos of which most have never been published previously. We are also proud to announce that this will be the first release on our 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.”
