Norwegian black metal icons, SATYRICON, have set their sights on a highly-anticipated new studio album, slated for release in May 2024
In a unique artistic collaboration with Oslo’s renowned Munch Museum last year, SATYRICON unveiled a 56-minute composition titled “Satyricon & Munch.” This boundary-breaking musical creation, crafted by Satyr himself, took the form of a musical work and transcended genre conventions, demonstrating the band’s artistic versatility.
The band‘s most recent collection of original material, “Deep Calleth Upon Deep,” hit the airwaves in September 2017 through Napalm Records. The album was meticulously recorded in both Oslo, Norway, and Vancouver, Canada, during early 2017. Mixing duties were expertly handled by the revered studio maestro Mike Fraser, who had previously collaborated with SATYRICON on their 2006 release, “Now, Diabolical.”
Earlier today (Tuesday, September 26), SATYRICON released the following update via social media: “We are pleased to confirm that we will return to the stage for the first time in five years in the summer of 2024. We will be focusing on the European festival run and have no touring plans outside of that currently.
“At the moment, we are working on a new album scheduled for a May 2024 release.
“The art exhibition and album ‘Satyricon & Munch’, was an intense and all-consuming project for the record books, but it is history now and we have been working on all these new things behind closed doors for almost a year. We’re delighted to soon share it.
“We really look forward to playing both brand new and old songs for you, and once again being able to hear you sing, scream and chant as the army you are.
“We will publish all dates once they have been confirmed and approved to publish. This will be great!”
To the delight of fans and collectors, the band’s inaugural two albums, “Dark Medieval Times” (1993) and “The Shadowthrone” (1994), received a fresh lease of life with remixed and remastered reissues in May 2021 under the banner of Napalm Records. These re-releases featured updated cover artworks, breathing new life into these classic works of black metal artistry.
