Only one duo is able to evoke sinister settings like the world of bleak woods lurking behind Norwegian wafts of mist. That duo is Satyricon. Formed in Oslo in 1991, Satyricon has made an immediate and enduring impact when they emerged from the flourishing Norwegian black metal scene.
In support of the latest opus "Deep calleth upon Deep," Satyricon will return to U.S. shores for the final time this Spring. The tour starts May 13th in Los Angeles, CA and runs through May 30th in Austin, TX with two stops in Canada. Inquisition will provide support on the tour. A complete list of dates can be found below. The run also includes a headline appearance at The Maryland Death Fest.
With "Deep calleth upon Deep," the masters Satyr and Frost properly dispense the darkest art of metal. The album oozes with sorrow, as black metal hymns drag shake the soul and the skeleton like hyenas feasting on a rotten carcass. The resulting album is erratic and destructive, in addition to being raw and pure. It plows. It's progressive. It mounts an unapologetic sonic attack.
The sheer force of personality and creativity that has driven Satyricon forward over the last quarter of a century is writ large across "Deep calleth upon Deep's" extraordinary musical contents. "Deep calleth upon Deep" is a profound statement about the essence of Satyricon's music and the eternal value of art itself.
"As our U.S fans will have noticed, we haven't toured there in nine years. There are many reasons for that. I like America and I like Americans, but unfortunately touring there has been a difficult chapter in the history of Satyricon. I can't guarantee what the future holds, but we did not go on the last record, so I am hoping that one final headlining tour can be a good way of sharing some electric musical moments with our U.S fans, whom we love just as much as all our other fans across the world", states Satyr.
