From the black metal of ‘Rabid Death’s Curse’ to the melodic epic grandeur of ‘Lawless Darkness’, Watain’s sound keeps evolving. ‘Trident Wolf Eclipse’, their last studio album to date, has more than enough kick-ass riffs to keep things interesting and thanks to its short run time it packs a meaty punch throughout.
