Watain Offends TMZ, Hipsters and Everyone at Animal Blood-Splattered Brooklyn Show – Video

Watain-FB-38Sometimes the mainstream doesn’t get metal. In this case, Swedish black metal band Watain has made headlines at celebrity gossip blog website, TMZ, for dumping animal blood onto fans at their Brooklyn, New York show that took place this past Sunday. Here is what they wrote:

Watain–whose members are devout devil worshipers — played their only U.S. summer gig Sunday night in Brooklyn … and they were true to form.

You see the lead singer present the audience with a goat skull full of animal blood … then drench the crowd.  According to interviews with the band, they use REAL pig’s blood.

You hear audience members shriek … and we’re told some barfed and cried.

Shockingly … cops say no one complained.  And no one has heard a peep from the health dept.

However–this is, well, normal for Watain. Their live “rituals” have gained quite the international reputation considering they always contain lots of blood, fire and dead animals–so you know what you’re getting into. Since the Revolver staff was in attendance at the gig, we can assure you the barfing and putrid smell definitely happened.

Here is the video TMZ posted:

    LOL young and in the way did nearly this same thing to a sold out crowd in charlotte nc a little over a week ago and everybody seemed pretty cool about it

  • Josh Pelican

    Man, this is fairly fucking common in black metal. Anyone remember Gorgoroth’s legendary concert in Krakow?!

  • Pidgeon

    That is not a goat skull. That is a prop.
    And a goat skull without skin wouldn’t hold blood. And if you sealed it up real tight it wouldn’t contain enough blood to drench even a single fan. I call bullshit.
    And by that I mean that I hope they use the shit from a bull on their next gig :)

      Guess you haven’t attended a Watain concert.

        Nope. Not my cup of … blood?
        I’m sure they’re fine if you like your metal black. But I like mine melodious and harmonous.

    what’s bad is revolver is becoming just as hipster with their round the clock coverage of fuckin’ taylor momsen,and giving axl a lifetime achievement award when he barely made it through his set at golden gods the man has sounded terrible for 20 years lol

  • Gemma-Louise Johnson

    If it dries brown then its real blood, if it dries red like mine did from the UK Golden God’s on Monday, then it is fake!
