“After 20 years of carving our own path through and out of the world, Trident Wolf Eclipse feels like a worthy point of arrival indeed. One of power and force, shining a new harsh light upon all that has been, those that perished along the way, the life altering struggle and triumphant ecstasy of Watain. Trident Wolf Eclipse is however not about the past, nor the future, it is about here and now, and we sincerely look forward to show you all what that implies. To all those that are as impatient as we are for that day to come; Thank you for your unending support and see you soon.“
Check out the first single, ‘Nuclear Alchemy‘ below.
A new track, ‘Empire‘ is available to check out below.
Produced by Howard Benson, they say this record sees an evolution of the sound bringing them back to the excitement of their roots.
“We’re getting older, and we’re changing — so our music should change with us. At the same time, we rediscovered what made us who we are. I felt like I was 17-years-old again. I haven’t been this excited to release something since I first joined the band and we put out This War Is Ours.“
Tomorrow night they play Whalers in Warrnambool. Saturday night is at The Fat Controller in Adelaide, then next Friday 17th at Karova Lounge in Ballarat and finally The Forum in Melbourne on Saturday 18th November.
Their latest album, ‘After Hours, Close To Dawn‘ is in stores and online now via Dew Process.
