The eighth studio album by Norwegian black band SATYRICON is released via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
"We are back. Sorry it took so long, but we needed the time to be able pull off a record like this,” states band frontman Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven. “Comparing this one to previous records is time wasted, it is SATYRICON; constantly on the move. Naming this record Satyricon was the most obvious thing in the world. We have never done a record which captures the spirit of this band in such a way. Ever. It will demand a lot from you as a listener, but I know you will love it. It will grow on you and that is why it will stay with you forever. We won't tour as much in the future as we used to, and that will just make every tour more special. This album is for you and ourselves. It is our moment!”
»Satyricon« was recorded in Norway, produced by Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven, and mixed by Adam Kasper. The album features a guest vocal appearance by fellow Norwegian Sivert Hřyem of the rock group MADRUGADA.

Largely written in a remote cabin deep in the Norwegian woods by Satyr in collaboration with his old friend Snorre Ruch (of Thornsl), Age Of Nero features eight of the heaviest songs in Satyricon's history. From the unstoppable urgency that marks Black Crow On A Tombstone to the epic frenzy of Die By My Hand and the bleak nihilism of Den Siste, each title demands the utmost sonic intensity. This is metal music in its most mature form, not as simple escapism or a form of anger management, but as a profound experience of what it's like to live in an increasingly dark age.
