“The frontcover is made by artist Zbigniew M. Bielak from Poland, one of the few living artists we deem worthy to work with. However elaborate on it’s own, this frontcover should be seen as a mere taste of the most extensive artwork ever seen in a Watain context, hell, even in a Black Metal context! Just wait…”
“The title symbolises the unbound chaotic potential of that which is void of light”, frontman E. comments. “The light that defines, the light that shapes and restricts. The light by which the forces of law and order uphold their reign. In the absence of that light lies the wellspring of Watain: in Lawless Darkness.
“With this album and in all of our efforts with Watain we aim to capture the hungry madness and glimmering purity of darkness beyond illusion, the void that holds all yet where naught is manifest, the primordial tomb into which all the vanity of man and his creation shall collapse: indeed, The Lawless Darkness!
“‘Lawless Darkness’ shall be seen as a monument erected in honour of that collapse and a dedication to all those brave souls, who have willingly dared to venture the winding paths towards it.”
The tracklist will be as such:
‘Death’s Cold Dark’
‘Hymn To Qayin’
‘Kiss Of Death’
‘Waters Of Ain’
