Satyricon Gear Up To Release New Album

After being diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, things looked bleak for Satyricon frontman Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven, but low and behold the blackened metal pioneers will be hitting the studio in 2017 to record their first record in four years. In an interview with Metal Hammer, the frontman noted the record would show a mellower side to the band :

“When we started getting back in to the rhythm after I was hospitalised, the music changed. I wasn’t so much into what we did earlier – it wasn’t that I didn’t like it, but I didn’t feel it in the same way anymore.”

“A lot of what we did in the beginning is relentless, violent and aggressive. It’s not like it’s sobbing or really sad now, but it’s more percussive, varied and soulful. There’s less emphasis on the aggressive violent part of it.”

This should come as promising news for extreme metal fans who are eager to see another side of the metal legends. Keep your eyes and ears open for more on the new album!
