Satyricon Premiere “To Your Brethren In The Dark” Video

Satyricon have premiered a new video for their song “To Your Brethren In The Dark,” via Metal Injection. This song is from the band’s latest album “Deep Calleth Upon Deep.”

Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven commented:

“I wanted ‘To Your Brethren In The Dark‘ to be a director’s interpretation of the song, rather than a band performance type of thing. Seeing what we do through the eyes of another artist is always interesting to me and just like the song, the video has become a little bit of a journey on it’s own. ‘To Your Brethren In The Dark‘ is definitely one of the flagship songs on the record.

It is about emotion, our nature, the spirits, the autumn, the sombre and rainy days, those who we lost and the ones who we have not met yet. You could say it is a tribute to the sorrow in man and to the drama of the nature we surround ourselves with. A song for the dark towers of the past and those who will rise in the future. Pass the torch to your brethren in the dark.”

Satyricon Premiere New Song “Deep Calleth Upon Deep”

Satyricon have premiered a lyric video for the title track of their new album “Deep Calleth Upon Deep.” That effort is set to be released on September 22.

Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven commented:

“It was not easy to chose a song to represent this album as they are all so different. I consider them all to be a group of individuals with strong and unique personalities and together they make the album ‘Deep calleth upon Deep‘.

The title track is the only song we’ve done with baritone and regular guitar all the way through the song. I felt it was needed for the tonal depth I was looking for and to enhance the swing of the groove in the heavier parts.

It also has mellotron, cello, violin and backing vocals by classical singer Håkon Kornstad where the cello supports the baritone guitar and the mellotron, violin and the backing vocals provide air and width to the sound. Consider it a journey, play it loud, close your eyes and head into the forest. That’s what I do.”

Satyricon Reveal Cover Art For New Album “Deep Calleth Upon Deep”

Satyricon have revealed the cover art for their new album “Deep Calleth Upon Deep,” which is set to be released on September 22. The artwork features a drawing created by Edvard Munch in 1898.

Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven said the following about the album:

“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.”

Frost On Satyricon’s “Diverse” New Album: “Every Song Has A Life Of Its Own”

Satyricon’s Kjetil-Vidar “Frost” Haraldstad was recently interviewed on Jamey Jasta’s (Hatebreed) “The Jasta Show” and talked a bit about the band’s upcoming album. He said the effort, which will be released through Napalm Records on September 22, is “very, very diverse” and that “every song has a life of its own.”

Frost said the following [transcribed by Blabbermouth]:

“This is an album that we have been really working a lot with for a long time. It’s all about getting the right expression for each and every song.

It has never been anything that we’ve discussed in the band, but at least I personally feel that every song has a life of its own, a very strong and unique identity. This album is really about giving life to those eight songs that constitute it.

Like with every SATYRICON album, I guess it’s very, very diverse, and this is more true than ever with the new one. In particular, when it comes to this identity bit, I feel the songs, even if they fit extremely well together in a compilation of songs, each and every one, it’s very, very different from the others — almost like human beings are different from each other.”

He also added:

“I realize that the previous albums opened lots of doors for us. There was a reason that we chose to name the [last] album after the band itself. Basically, we felt that somehow SATYRICON became a very complete band with that album. We managed to bring that dynamic element into the band that somehow had been missing a little, and we felt that when that was there, it was like we had all the basic components that should constitute SATYRICON. And as those doors were opened with that album, we then found ourselves in a situation where we were, like, roaming about in those different rooms. And this new album is a result of discovering and searching through and basically exploring new territory and making it ours.”
