There are always a few tours each year that I would consider to be a must see. The 2015 Watain/Mayhem co-headlining tour is definitely one of them. Not only will those two bands be heading out across North Americas, but they will be bringing Revenge with them on all dates. Watain always puts one hell of a performance, and Revenge impressed me with their Maryland Deathfest set a year ago. Mayhem’s the only one I haven’t seen yet, but their new album had some intriguing moments and I’m always interested in seeing Attila Csihar live. Check out the full list of dates below.

Swedish black metal tyrants WATAIN will be making their return to North American soil this winter, kicking off a co-headlining tour with MAYHEM in January. The trio’s last appearance in the US featured WATAIN’s infamous stage ceremony, which made headlines across the world for its blasphemous display of blood, fire, and death: http://www.tmz.com/2014/06/17/waitain-pigs-blood-metal-band-video-swedish-black-metal. On this upcoming tour, fans can expect another special performance that will surely shock the uninitiated once again.

The trek also features REVENGE as support, making this a must-see bill! See below for dates.
