Watain at Irving Plaza in 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)

As mentioned in a recent edition of The Heavy Lowdown (which you may have missed since it was the Friday before Memorial Day), Swedish black metal band Watain will blaspheme the Brooklyn Night Bazaar on Sunday June 15 in what has to be the venue/market's most metal booking yet (sorry Pizza Underground). The show's part of the Northside Festival, and it will be Watain's only US show this summer. Unlike most Brooklyn Bazaar shows, this one costs money and tickets are on sale now. Try not to get blood in your banh mi.

When Watain's last album, The Wild Hunt, came out last year, we interviewed frontman Erik Danielsson over on Invisible Oranges. Check that out and stream The Wild Hunt and watch a video for "Outlaw" below.

If you're going to the BKNB show, it's worth showing up early for local band Kosmodemonic, whose psychedelic sludge may not be nearly as brutal as Watain's black metal, but should make for a pretty good primer for what's to come. They played a solid set opening for Kvelertak at Saint Vitus not long ago, which you can watch a video of, below.

Other upcoming heavy shows at Brooklyn Night Bazaar (which are free) include Trap Them / Coliseum and Ceremony / Iron Lung.

Videos and Watain LP stream below...

They say that at St. Vitus
The glory hole is fierce
Well, it's non-stop random man-meat,
That tastes like piss and beers
Oh, I don't want no more of sausage life
Gee Ma, I wanna go home!

The chicken hawks at St. Vitus,
They say that they abound,
Well I got picked as catcher
And not a reach-around!
Oh, I don't want no more of sausage life
Gee Ma, I wanna go home!

In cargo shorts and t-shirts
We think we look real hard
But how much can you dress up
A long haired tub of lard?
Oh, I don't want no more of sausage life
Gee Ma, I wanna go home!

Delivering those pizzas
Each weekday 12-3
And living in mom's basement
I do alright by me
Oh, I don't want no more of sausage life
I broke my shrimping straw,
Cleaned up, became a brah,
Gee Ma, I wanna go home!

Wow, Anonymous 11:57! That is a wonderful poem! Which liberal arts college did you learn to write so well at? Thank your parents for paying your way through Colgate, Bennington...or was it Sarah Lawrence? Probably Oberlin.

The singer of Kosmodemonic sounds like a Metal BORAT.

Lol @ the guy who thought they were using fake blood. Clearly you were only watching their videos at home and not at an actual concert/ritual otherwise you could smell the sweet death from the door. Their rituals are authentic and they use fresh kills from them. When I saw them last they used pigs heads and blood. If you don't want to be baptized in blood, you may want to stay out of the first two rows ;)

(That grime you speak of is grave dirt, ash, and blood. It's pretty fantastic)

9:44- Sorry you don't like it. I'm sure you can find another to ironically appropriate.

9:44- Call the FBI for what? We cover ourselves in blood and ash and dirt, we worship the void, we revere Holy Death. Christians kill in the name of their god, Rabbis suck baby penises as a means of ritual. Maybe we are not the ones you should be worried about.
