It is as true as the day is long.
Norwegian outfit Satyricon have christened their forthcoming batch of black metal badness.
The name is: Satyricon.
Yup. Self-titled. That’s the worst. I feel like that’s just the lazy way out of the woods, you dig?
Also today, the band revealed that they have a very special, exclusive show coming up on September 8 at Oslo’s Norwegian National Opera House, where they will perform with Norway’s 55-strong National Opera Chorus.
Now that, I’d like to see. Who’s willing to put me up? I know I have readers in Norway! Don’t be shy, folks. I only snore like a bear when I’m gassy.
The special event is part of the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival, and fans of both Satyricon and the National Opera Chorus can look forward to a very unique and exciting evening, which coincides with the worldwide release of Satyricon’s ninth studio album.
Says Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven, the band’s frontman: “Satyricon excels as a band, the bigger the platform is. In Norway, there is no greater stage than the main hall of our new Opera House. There is nowhere better suited to provide the dynamics, power and authenticity to such an occasion than the Opera Choir and Satyricon.
“To us, there is no better way to celebrate with our fans that we are back with our first album in five years. We are also excited to have a couple of special musical friends come and play their part as well. Ladies and gentlemen — welcome!”
