Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON have announced a brand new album!
The highly anticipated new album, titled Deep calleth upon Deep, follows 2013’s self-titled record and is scheduled to be released in September this year! The upcoming album was recorded in Oslo, Norway and Vancouver, Canada, during early 2017 and mixed together with Mike Fraser who previously worked on the band’s 2006 album, Now, Diabolical. Speaking about the new album, frontman Satyr says, “approaching this release, what I always kept in mind is that either this is the beginning of something new or it’s gonna be my last record. If this is going to be the last, then it needs to be something special. If there are more records, then I’d better make sure that this is so different from the last one that it feels like a new beginning. I think it’s really, really dark, very spiritual and filled with confidence and energy. The way that I see it is that for any art, be it SATYRICON or any other form of art with substance, in order for you to be able to inhale and completely understand it, it will take a little bit of you as well. If you get it all after a couple of listens, you know that it probably won’t stay with you. So the title is saying, ‘From the depth of the people making this record to the depth of the listener…’ If you want to take part in this journey, you should be prepared to dig deep down in the darkest corner of your soul with us.”
Deep calleth upon Deep is set for release on September 22nd via Napalm Records. Pre-order become available in August.
