Anders Odden (Satyricon, Cadaver) Diagnosed With Colon Cancer

Anders Odden (Satyricon, Cadaver) has revealed that he has been diagnosed with colon cancer. The musician has already undergone chemotherapy and is also scheduled to undergo surgery on January 6.

Odden said the following:

“I wanted to wait to tell you all about my condition until my surgery was done, but then I got this video clip. On my musical hero Lemmy’s, death date (28.12.2015) my friend Hank Von Hell is in Sweden raising money for the cancer cause with Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee. Getting this video was very touching and made me wanna share it with you to raise money for cancer research.

I was diagnosed with colon cancer the 3rd of October 2019. Since then I have done chemotherapy to shrink the tumor down so I can undergo surgery.

The surgery date is set to the 6th of January 2020. The doctors have told me that everything will go as planed and that I will get rid of this cancer. It’s a tough journey, but I am ready. Have a happy new year and I will see you when I am through. #cancer #coloncancer #cancerresearch #mikkeydee #hankvonhell #motorhead #riplemmykilmister #🤘😎🤘”

He also added the following in a separate post:

“It’s been a weird year – recorded a new fantastic @cadavertheband album with my new wingman, @dirkverbeuren. Ruled the metal festivals of the world with @satyriconofficial – Made my live comeback with Cadaver at @hellbotn_metalfest – then toured Norway with @haape and the legendary @tonyharnell – then, My life turned upside down the 3rd of October getting diagnosed with colon cancer- BUT – i am allready on the road to getting back- Surgery and recovery, then back out with new music and gigs!

Cadaver Premiere “Circle Of Morbidity” Video

Anders Odden (Satyricon) has joined forces with Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth) to relaunch his old band Cadaver. You can check out a video for their new song “Circle of Morbidity” below. The track features guest vocals from Jeff Becerra (Possessed) and it is expected to appear on the group’s upcoming album “Edder & Bile.”

Odden said the following about Cadaver’s return:

“In my heart I have always had the notion that Cadaver exists somehow. Dirk played session live work for Satyricon on the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise in 2014 and we got to know each other then. He talked about how much he loved Cadaver and I then told him that I had been recording demos for 10 years without a drummer….so, being the guy he is, he then says, ‘Send the songs to me!”

He also had the following to say about working with Becerra:

“When I heard Possessed for the first time in 1985, I knew this was my kind of music. To have the original creator of death metal on our comeback single is huge for me, I am beyond thrilled to show everybody what we have been cooking up this time around.”

Becerra added:

“It was a great honor being asked by Anders to sing backup vocals on ‘Circle of Morbidity’. Of course, working with Anders Odden & Dirk Verbeuren is like a fantastic nightmare, brutal and heavy as hell. Congratulations to Anders Odden/Cadaver on this brand new single. Amazing song, thank you!”
