Watain's Pig Blood Antics Covered By Online Tabloid TMZ

This past Sunday (June 15th), the Swedish black metal tyrants in Watain returned to North America to deliver their infamous stage ceremony of blood, fire, and death.

During this special performance at the Brooklyn Bazaar, the band hurled pig's blood into the crowd, baptizing NY fans in filth as part of a Satanic ritual. The antics made it all the way to the lowest common denominator online tabloid TMZ. If you're willing to sully your Internet history by heading to that unfortunate website, you can see footage from the event over here.

While Watain's Brooklyn concert will be the trio's only U.S. appearance of 2014, the band promises to bring more uncompromising live shows back to the States soon. Fans abroad can catch Watain at various European festivals throughout the summer, where the band will be playing in support of fifth full-length, "The Wild Hunt" (reviewed here).

I clicked it to see how they'd spin it. They're claiming it turned into a massive vomitorium. I call BS. Anyone who's ever been to a Watain concert knows the smell of putrification well and fully expects it at some point during the performance.
