Hipsters Out Of Metal!

Y’know, whatever the problem is between The Haunted singer Peter Dolving and Watain, I’m gonna go with Watain. I don’t know what set him off, but Dolving said Watain is overrated (read here). Okay fine, dude’s got his opinion. He also seems to think Watain is corny and totally scoffs at their vibe. I get that, too. But I don’t think it’s cool to kinda float it out there that maybe somebody somewhere should fight the dudes of Watain. And good guys, guys that we like, don’t all slyly suggest that other guys are neo-nazis. I mean, as I read Dolving’s words, I half-expected the Leezar to claim that they have STDs.

Plus I thrash the logic that Watain would best harness their evil potential by becoming white-collar business jerks, with all the schooling and networking that suggests. First off, why is he so sure they aren’t working on a weather machine or subliminal Manchurian Candidate stuff? Second, Dolving’s logic is half-baked, right? I mean, why doesn’t Dolving become a high-powered executive to wield his agenda on everybody? Oh right, cuz he’s a musician. Musicians make music.


Watain’s awesome 2010 album Lawless Darkness yielded the awesome “Reaping Death” single whose b-side is an awesome Bathory cover (above!).
