A worrying news from the Satyricon camp. It seems that the band's frontman Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. His full official statement can be read down below. We wish him all best and to get better as soon as possible.
Black metallers Satyricon are going to revisit a special album in their career, the timeless and towering Nemesis Divina. Satyricon will return in 2016 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this seminal masterpiece, with a never-to-be-repeated series of exclusive European shows, wherein the Norwegian trailblazers will perform the album in its entirety for the first and last time.
Norwegian black metal masters Satyricon have signed a worldwide deal with Austrian metal label Napalm Records for the release of their upcoming DVD Live At The Opera. The DVD is set to be released in Europe on May 1st and on May 5th, 2015 in North America via Napalm Records. This upcoming release will contain the full performance DVD and double CD of this exclusive and very special concert by Satyricon and the group has previously unveiled the cover art and a preview for it.
Live At The Opera, which is the name of the first ever Satyricon live CD/DVD album, is coming out in April this year when they will be touring in Europe as well. The band now decided to share the cover with fans. Furthermore, you can watch below a preview from the live album Live At The Opera, an unmastered version. Enjoy!
Norwegians Satyricon have cancelled their scheduled October U.S. appearances at Housecore Horror Film Festival 2014 and Knotfest 2014 to focus on writing their new album, re-editing the footage from the Live At The Opera live album/DVD and another project that will be announced later. What could it be?
On March 21st, Norwegian black metallers Satyricon will deliver a very special show at Rockefeller in Oslo and the last guests have been confirmed. The band will be joined by a Brass Ensemble consisting of members from the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and The Norwegian Radio Orchestra. Some of these guys performed both on Now, Diabolical and The Age Of Nero, and live with Satyricon in the past. With Nocturno Culto from Darkthrone already confirmed as special guest on Nemesis Divina songs, Thorns mastermind Snorre Ruch will be there performing classic Thorns songs that Satyr recorded with him, and Sivert Høyem is joining for the new single "Phoenix".
Satyricon have released a new video for their song "Phoenix", taken from their recently released self-titled album. "Phoenix" features Sivert Høyem (vocalist of Madrugada) on vocals and percussion by Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven and Karl Oluf Wennerberg. Enjoy it here!
Satyricon, the band's new studio album, was released yesterday in Norway via Indie Recordings and Satyricon also unveiled the official lyric video for the new song "Phoenix". You can hear the brand new song from the Norwegian black metallers below. The track features Sivert Høyem on vocals.
Satyricon are pleased to present their first single, "Our World, It Rumbles Tonight", off their upcoming self-titled album. The band has also signed a record deal with Indie Recordings, who will release their new album in Norway, on September 9th. Check out the new song in the YouTube player below.
Satyricon have confirmed that the name of their long-awaited upcoming new album is none other than Satyricon, since it promises to capture the spirit of the band like never before. Satyricon was recorded in Norway, produced by Satyr and mixed by Adam Kasper. The album will be released worldwide on September 9th via Roadrunner Records and the album horned artwork can be seen below. An European tour to promote the album will follow in November and you can see the dates confirmed on the flyer.
As previously reported, Satyricon have been recording their new opus and successor to The Age Of Nero released back in 2008. Recently, the group's mastermind Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven has revealed that the recording process is nearing completion.
Satyricon are currently working on new songs and recording new material in the studio for the follow-up to The Age Of Nero. So far, the drum tracks are all recorded. The band's frontman Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven was recently interviewed at Inferno Metal Festival and gave an update on what the band is up to at the moment and what you can expect from the new album.
On November 18th, members from high profile Norwegian metal bands, including Darkthrone, Satyricon and Taake, will take part in a live show called "Algir - Støttekonsert For Jonas R. Christiansen", at Bergen's prime rock venue, Garage. The aim is to raise awareness for colon cancer. In addition, Helheim, Gravdal and Slavia themselves will perform in order to help raise funds and provide 31-year-old Jonas Christiansen with a chance to fight the disease.
Norwegian black metallers Satyricon have scheduled a string of live dates in Mexico, South and Central America. The tour will take place in late October/early November. Get the list of dates after the jump.
In late 2009, Satyricon announced that it was planning to take a break following the completion of the group's most recent headlining European tour. Satyricon vocalist Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven later told Terrorizer.com that the band's December 20, 2009 concert in London, England would mark the beginning of a new phase in the group's evolution.
"From then on, there are going to be a lot of changes in the Satyricon camp," he said. "After we take a long touring break and come back a couple of years later, certain people may not be with us any longer. Although we won't be doing anything overly dramatic, we'll be trying quite a few different things, which I think is going to be really good for Satyricon. The reason we're doing that is so we can continue to develop our sound. At the moment we are still enjoying what we do, but if that continues any longer it'll undoubtedly stagnate, so we need to ensure that doesn't happen. And moving in different musical directions is definitely a good way to go about it."
