One of the most overdone and ill-performed genres in the history of metal has to be black metal, and when black metal is performed with the force and fanaticism of Sweden?s very own Watain, then it is a force to be reckoned with! And finally Lawless Darkness the new full-length from this Uppsala/Stockholm, Sweden-based black metal act is here and it is a force be reckoned with. It harkens back to the days of yore, when black metal was new, vile and most importantly, dangerous and excellent.
Lawless Darkness shows Watain as being one of the premier (if not the premier) black metal band(s) from Sweden. The legions of Swedish black metal are pretty thick, but listening to an album like this just puts into sharp perspective how black metal is to be executed!
