After the release of Watain's 'Lawless Darkness' I was sure that it was the pinnacle of the band's work. How mistaken I was. Upon hearing 'Casus Luciferi' I had instantaneously revised my opinion of the new album and immediately rated this, their second release, my favourite and the best black metal album I've heard in.......a long, long time. This is black metal at its rawest and purest; dark, sinister, magickal, eerie, and most importantly of all: evil. Don't be put off by their stage shows or personal views of the members; a true music fan looks past all of that and concentrates on what matters most and that's the MUSIC. This is a must-have for any seriously dedicated fan of the black metal art, simple as that. I will refrain from doing a track by track analysis which has become so popular amongst reviewers these days as an album this spectacular needs to be enjoyed all the way through, uninterrupted and alone. Buy it.

Ave Sathanas, Ave Watain!

A great release made even greater 10 Feb 2009
By Taylor Carr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Casus Luciferi" has long been one of those albums that I think fondly of when I begin to miss the heyday of black metal. It has a diabolical blend of new and old, as it pays homage to Mayhem and Dissection, yet manages to be even more sinister and quite unique in the grand scope of things. There are moments of blistering chaos interspersed with moments of mid-paced morbid beauty, to craft a record of multiple dimensions. Tracks like "Opus Dei" and "I Am the Earth" are unholy anthems that testify to the purpose and promise of Watain in spectacular ways.

As much as I love the material on "Casus Luciferi", I've always thought the production job was seriously flawed. I do have appreciation for underground black metal, but certain styles of playing also lose some of their impact and effect if the sound quality is poor. The original recording of this album had extremely low bass and a very weak, paper-thin sound that was extremely disappointing for the segments of music that really summoned power and intensity.

Once I discovered that this record had been remastered, I bought it immediately, having heard the improved production Season of Mist offered on "Sworn to the Dark". Let me simply say that this is exactly the treatment the album deserved from the start. The bass mix is thunderous and powerful, and every instrument is clearly distinguishable from the others. A haunting, demonic atmosphere is captured brilliantly on this remaster of an album that has helped to keep the black, pulsating heart of black metal alive still today.

The Ancient Flame Burns Eternal 5 Dec 2010
By Scottie Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Watain's "Casus Luciferi" is an extraordinarily furious work of black metal art. An oddly accessible dark magic, which seduces you with it's mounting crescendo of hypnotic riffs../^ before bursting into the grand-evil finale of climactic title track "Watain."

The eerie multi-dimensional guitars../^ sinister anguished vocals... lyrics full of misanthropy and rage... The furious drum storm & churning bass-engine all come together wonderfully for an hour of blatant blasphemy so sickeningly turbulent... only occasionally loping into a crushing mid-pace before sucking you back to it's powerful vortex once again. Like trying to escape the Death Star tractor beam... Melody and power fused well... I don't hesitate to give this 5 stars and recommend you track it down before the inevitable 5-year wait for a repress.

So good... 30 Mar 2011
By Big Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
So good... I can't say enough about this album, right up there with Mayhem's De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas and Absu's Barathrum:(V.I.T.R.I.O.L.) They are at their peak on this album with dark, heavy music and my favorite drumming of all their albums!
black metal designed for an endless, well-crafted assault 14 May 2013
By Matt Stoessel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Watain is like the following bands: Marduk, Dawn, Setherial, Inquisition, Immortal, Ofermod, Mayhem

Watain is unlike the following bands: Dissection, Vinterland, Lord Belial

Watain is VERY unlike the following bands: Agathodaimon, Graveworm, Mystic Circle, Stormlord, Catamenia, Tidfall

Hm, Watain. Watain brings a type of black metal we haven't seen. At least not in the 21st century. Production is very clear, especially bass. Watain is very similar to so many of its fellow countrymen (Swedes), such as Marduk, Dawn, or Setherial (and the rest of the former bands). The middle group plays a more ++modern++ or ++melodic++ black metal, while the 3rd group plays a very modernized and melodic black metal. Watain plays FURIOUSLY, and in a non-stop fashion only comparable to the former group. Watain has no "Where Dead Angels Lie" slower song. Take the relentlessness of Mayhem's De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas album, and layer it on top of the former group of Swedish bands - you'll get pretty close to Watain's sound.

The only "charm" you'll find here is the absolute relentless assault. There are no "hooks" to start the song (the closest thing being "From the Pulpits of Abomination"); there are no keyboards; there are no let's-focus-on-a-solo sections; etc.

Watain emerged after the second generation of black metal was in full swing. Yet they play as if they were born out of the collective womb of the former group of Swedish bands. No doubt, this is why they've taken the metal world by storm: because no one else can just "pop up" and appear to have been around for much longer.

I've mentioned Watain's bass. It is very clear. Great care went into the songwriting for the guitars and drums, and it shows in the performance. It is clear these are talented musicians. I'm not crazy about the vocals, but it's awfully rare to encounter a "groundbreaking" harsh vocalist. Watain's sound is polished so much so that I wouldn't be surprised to see it appeal to teenagers desperate to find something heavy enough to be "cool" to listen to.

Given the outright assault Watain brings to the listener without any pauses, it's understandable that listeners may have a hard time getting into them. Let me say this: The third group pummels listeners with almost abrasively-loud production (ala Gothenburg melodic death metal bands signed to Century Media and Nuclear Blast) and tries to cover it up with keyboards. While I enjoy listening to the harmonies of Catamenia's "Iced Over," the end-of-all-hope atmosphere of Graveworm's "Abandoned By Heaven," or Stormlord's rather awesome cover of Iron Maiden's "Moonchild," these bands lack charm, and so I've tended to outgrow them.

Watain yields repeated listens - if for no other reason, then at least in order for the listener to determine just what s/he is hearing. As with the handful of Austrian bands (Abigor, Amestigon, etc.), you'll need about six listens before you'll be able to wrap your head around Casus Luciferi. This is when we look at black metal and say that we're proud that several bands in the 80's took metal in this direction. Watain plays music that requires talent. It's the natural evolution of heavy music. I recommend you give this new history a listen.
WATAIN trance 13 Aug 2014

I have all of Watain's and can't find any single song that I don't like.
Casus Luciferi immediately hooked me and I get into the metal trance everytime I listen.
