Norwegian metal titans ABBATH and notorious Swedish black metal collective WATAIN are now announcing a brand new co-headlining tour!

A full list of confirmed shows can be found below.

With the addition of Swedish dark metal shooting stars TRIBULATION and unconventional Swiss blackened death metal duo BÖLZER as special guests during all shows, this is the tour European extreme metal fans truly deserve after a seemingly endless period of drought!

E. Danielsson of WATAIN comments:

We can finally announce our first European Tour for ‘The Agony & Ecstasy of Watain’: The CHARIOTS OF FIRE tour, in the fall of 2022. The name of the tour is taken from the first lyric line of the first song of the new album, but it’s also an ode to the song by Bathory, a band whom we share a great passion for with our tour companion, the one and only ABBATH. Joining us are also the unique powerhouses Tribulation and Bölzer.
