Sweden's most notorious metal extremists, WATAIN, reveal the album cover artwork and tracklist of their fifth studio album.
Executed in oil and mixed materials, the cover of "The Wild Hunt" was done by Zbigniew M Bielak, the very same artist who was responsible for the "Lawless Darkness" artwork. The piece depicts one of the inmost shrines of WATAIN's temple. As on every classic still life, each object has a significant meaning, while each song of the album is also connected to an object.
