A Swedish black metal band which openly professes their devout worship of the devil splattered fans with pig's blood poured from the skull of a goat, causing them to scream and vomit during a satanic ritual at one of their performances in Brooklyn, New York, Sunday night.
"You see the lead singer present the audience with a goat skull full of animal blood ... then drench the crowd. According to interviews with the band, they use REAL pig's blood. You hear audience members shriek ... and we're told some barfed and cried," noted entertainment website TMZ in a report on the event.
No one complained about Watain's ritual and its effects, according to the report and the health department did not raise any concerns.
"As wolves among sheep we have wandered. Ceremonial fanaticism, black mass hysteria, blood, fire and death; rock n roll as the Devil once intended," the band's website states.
"Musically fueled by forefathers such as Venom, Bathory, Metallica and Mercyful Fate, and spiritually fueled by the lawless will of the liberated spirit, Watain is that dangerous flame of Metal that seemed lost for many years, and that now once again has been set loose upon the dying world in honor of the wild and untamed darkness that lies at the heart of true rock n roll music," it adds.
