As any black metal fan knows, Sweden's Watain have stormed from the hellish pits of the underground onto the covers of the biggest metal magazines worldwide. As was the case with its predecessor Casus Luciferi (2003), it again took Watain three years to define the nature of the work that became their third full-length effort. However, even more praise than ever before was heaped upon the musical extremists after releasing Sworn to the Dark in 2007. This album proved to be another stepping stone in their steeply rising career and saw the band teaming up with Season of Mist for the first time. Sworn to the Dark is an immense discharge of magic and death that stands as the band's ultimate black metal monolith!
