Watain is a Swedish black metal band, formed in Uppsala, Sweden in 1998. The band's name is taken from a recording written by the American black metal group Von. According to Erik Danielsson, when the band formed, "there weren't really any bands anymore that seemed to take things that seriously, and there weren't that many bands that actually consisted of, you know, people that did so much more than just play the music that they liked and the same kind of music that their idols play".
