Biography

The annals of rock'n'roll are full of cliche and superstition, of iconic references like the famous "third album" - or the eponymous one. As far as "the third" is concerned, Norwegian black metal masters Satyricon certainly delivered something extraordinary in the form of "Nemesis Divina". Back in 1996 it instantly placed them at the centre of one of ... Read more in Amazon's Satyricon Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Monumental black metal release February 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Satyr's a lucky guy. Satyricon is the first black metal band to get a major label release, and they remain 100% in control of the direction of their music and artistic presence. Before the release of this album, I read an interview with Satyr-- He came off as highly pretentious, calling his new work "state-of-the-art black metal..." But after finally listening to Volcano, I can't say I can disagree with him. Being a relatively mainstream release, I can imagine not only Burzum-obsessed 17-year olds shunning Volcano, but I don't see CoF and Dimmu-worshipping symphonic black metal fans embracing this any time soon either. Their loss.

The album has a few progressive tints scattered throughout the song structures, but it's mostly minimalistic black metal with a few hard rock and thrash elements. The songs are a bit doomier/slower as well as more expansive, dragging you through some twisted chord progressions that cut like sharp rocks. This is by no means how I imagined Satyricon's EUM debut, and I rather like it. You don't have to atonally grind for an album to reflect an attitude that doesn't accept compromise.

This album starts out with the song "With Ravenous Hunger," a fitting opener. It begins with some alternating growls and hair-raising spoken-word verses by Satyr, laid over some sharp arrangements featuring intelligent use of melody.

The second track, bearing the silly name "angstridden," kind of shambles along and introduces some female vocals into the mix. I can't remember her name, but she's apparently the daughter of some esteemed Jazz musician. Anyway, her vocals are fragile, yet darkly mysterious. And yes, I do know what a cliche it is to describe female vocals with those adjectives.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible black metal album July 18, 2004
By John
Format:Audio CD
"ON MY SIGNAL.....UNLEASH HELL"
and with those words one of my favorite albums begins. This is my favorite satyricon reconrd next to Nemesis Divina. Sure the guitar wor is slower and the sound is alot clearer then previous Satyricon releases but still an incredible album. Satyr is a musical genius, He handles all vocal,lyric,synth,bass,guitar work for satyricon the other member of satyricon, Frost, right now hes one of my favorite drummers. This might be his best satyricon album. Here is the problem people seem to have with this album. Its there 1st on a major record label which is owned by the guitarist from the well known nu-metal band system of a down. I say, so frigging what hes not making the damn album so don't judge it by that. My favorite tracks off of "volcano" would be Fuel for hatred, repined (...) natin and mental mercury.
extra features includes the unedited banned version of the video for "fuel for hatred" I hope this review could help you on this certain album, enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD June 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
first off to the idiots that think they are to cool to listen to this just cuz its missing a few elements of "true" black metal you are ignorant cuz Satyricon has always been in the 2nd wave of Black metal with bands such as Marduk, Mayhem, Darkthrone, Emperor, Immortal, Carpathian Forest, and many of the others. just cuz they wanted expand their musical horizons isnt a bad thing. i mean why would you want a cd that sounds exactly like the last...

4.0 out of 5 stars Sellout? No f-ing way July 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Every time a band tries something somewhat new or even slightly different the unimaginative fans start screaming sell-out. How in hell does a black metal band sell-out anyway, I'd really like to know. Do they start singing about beer and girls? Or perhaps they start endorsing cell phone companies, they'll all satanic anyway right? Or maybe they start writing love songs with rap breakdowns in the middle. "Yo man lets get a DJ, that'll help sell our CDs to the kids yo!" Well Satyricon don't do any of those things on Volcano. What they do is play some great dark as f*ck metal. No, its not as fast as some of their previous work but its heavy, grim and cold. Satyr is an excellent black metal songwriter and Frost is one of the best drummers in the genre. Is this their best album? No, some of the songs could have used editing: Black Lava is 14 minutes long, it drags after a bit (still got some good riffs and atmosphere). Suffering the Tyrants, Possessed and Fuel for Hatred all shred. Volcano is a very solid effort, but not a masterpiece. Buy it and be happy that Satyricon is still putting out excellent material.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satyricon's Finest Hour July 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
And yet another band pulls itself out of the typical black metal cycle (in which, basically, everyone does the exact same thing they did in 1994) only to be called sell-outs. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Hmm... if this is selling out, then I hope everyone starts doing it.

This is Satyr & Frost's most minimalist effort, and for the most part has a 'black'n'roll' feel to it, not unlike Darkthrone's "Total Death" album from 10 years ago... yet definitely not a copy.

The production is surprisingly clean (possibly due to major label budget - Satyricon went corporate with this release) which helps the album along significantly, lending clarity to the sound and a cold edge to Satyr's nasty little growls.

Some very fitting and well-performed female vocals poke their way in on a few occasions (most notably on "Angstridden" and "Black Lava") and really do set the tone for the movements in which they're used.

Song picks here would be the two mentioned above, as well as "Mental Mercury" for having an ending that simply blew my head off - one of the best uses of repetition I've heard in the genre, ever.

This is definitely the highlight of Satyricon's catalogue, and a must-have for any fans of straight-forward 'blackened' metal without the bells and whistles that many other bands have made use of.
