Satyricon Exhibition “Satyricon & Munch” To Explore Intersection Of Black Metal And Visual Art

Satyricon have joined forces with the Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway for a new exhibit called “Satyricon & Munch.” The exhibit will open on March 26, 2022 and it will feature musical work that was inspired by painter Edvard Munch.

The following was said about the exhibition:

“Since the fall of 2018, Satyricon has been working on the writing and recording of a musical work whose main objective is to create a symbiosis with Edvard Munch’s iconic art in an exhibition that will be held at the new Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway, opening 3/26/2022. Following the exhibition will be the release of the musical work in album format, carrying the same title as the exhibition, Satyricon & Munch.”

Satyricon added:

“Since the fall of 2018, Satyricon has been working on the writing and recording of a musical work whose main objective is to create a symbiosis with Edvard Munch’s iconic art in an exhibition that will be held at the new Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway, opening 26/3/2022. Following the exhibition will be the release of the musical work in album format, carrying the same title as the exhibition, ‘Satyricon & Munch’.

We consider this massive challenge the greatest honor of our career. Edvard Munch created some of the most iconic images in the world of art and through his career demonstrated the kind of courage and freedom we have always embraced and aspired to us as artists ourselves. To write music whose ambition is to take the art of Munch into uncharted territory is quite a journey to be on. We look forward to sharing more details with you in the coming months.”

Satyr Says Satyricon Are About “Midway Through” With Their New Album

During a recent interview with Kaaos TV, Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven offered an update on the new Satyricon album. According to him, the band are about “midway through” with the record.

Satyr said the following when asked if Norwegian folk music has influenced the new material:

“Yeah, there are some guitar things that clearly [have] the typical SATYRICON incorporation of that type of tonality. But perhaps the most important part is my peculiar rhythmical patterns which some of my colleagues find to be troubling because they are inconsiderate of the rules of rock music and any other kind of structure and more based around the freedom that I feel is in Norwegian folk music. So that some of the parts that I write, you can’t really anticipate where the chord progression is going to end because I don’t necessarily follow established rhythmical patterns for how music is done. I let the idea and the melody line lead the way.”

He continued when asked how close the album is to being finished:

“It is midway through, I would say. It’s difficult when you work on these type of projects because, at least in my case, I end up writing a lot more than I actually use. I probably end up writing three times more than I end up using. And also I know that when you are in the first stage of such a process, you very often find that what you do in the very beginning that you believe firmly in and that you are absolutely confident that this will be a very important part of the record ends up not being used at all. And then some part which you are not sure about and you probably think that you will not end up using becomes a very important part of the record because, all of a sudden, coincidentally, you will come up with some idea that will bring this idea to a whole new level that you were never before able to imagine, and then something that seemed to be a likely candidate to be dropped becomes an integral part of the record. And then maybe something else which you thought would be one of the most significant musical pieces on your record doesn’t fit in anywhere and then you just end up skipping the whole thing and not including it at all. We haven’t gotten that far in the process, but I know from experience that that will happen sooner or later, and then we will see if that will take up a lot of our time or if bits and pieces will fall into their places without too much hassle and resistance.”

“The unusual part here is that I’m not really working the way that I’m used to working, because I’m used to writing at home or in the rehearsal studio or in remote locations like cabins up in the mountains and things like that. But this is the type of record where I realized that although I can make some ideas under the circumstances I normally would, I find that this is a record that is better to write primarily in the studio for the reason that I’m working on a lot of things which you can’t really prepare in the way you would prepare drums, bass, guitar and vocals.”

Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven Says Satyricon’s New Album Will “Not Have The Instrumentation You Are Used To Hearing”

Satyricon have been working on their new album as of late. Frontman Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven recently shared a photo of himself and Snorre Ruch (Thorns) in the studio, along with the following caption:

“Snorre Ruch and have been sparring musically for over twenty years with Thorns and @satyriconofficial This project is the new Satyricon album that I’m working on which is close to a musical work in its approach. It is not a collection of songs and it does not have the instrumentation you are used to hearing. Black Metal has unlimited forms of expression as long as it has the feeling that is unique to real Black Metal. You’ll like this and I look forward to sharing it with you in about one year from now.”

Cadaver Premiere “Morgue Ritual” Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Edder & Bile”

Cadaver, the band featuring Anders Odden (Satyricon) and Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth), have premiered a new video for their new song “Morgue Ritual.” This track is from the band’s new album “Edder & Bile,” which will be released on November 27.

“Edder & Bile” Track Listing:

01. “Morgue Ritual”
02. “Circle Of Morbidity”
03. “Feed The Pigs”
04. “Final Fight”
05. “Deathmachine”
06. “Reborn”
07. “The Pestilence”
08. “Edder & Bile”
09. “Years Of Nothing”
10. “Let Me Burn”

Odden said the following about the record:

“I met Dirk Verbeuren during the 70000 Tons Of Metal festival in 2014. He was sitting in for Frost in Satyricon and we played two shows together. It turned out that Dirk was a huge Cadaver fan, and at the time, I had several songs in the making for what I thought might be a solo album. The idea of kicking this all into the third version of Cadaver came into life and we started to share ideas. We had about 10 songs by the time Dirk was on tour in Europe with Megadeth in 2016. They played in my neighborhood and we spent the afternoon jamming. Cadaver was reborn. I started to pile up ideas for new tracks and time went by.

I really wanted this to sound like Cadaver and be up to date, yet timeless. The music is what we both consider as death metal. I have my own way of writing riffs and he has his own way of expressing them on drums that just fits and sounds great.

We finally found the time to hit the studio in early 2019 and recorded the album in L.A. where Dirk lives and works.

The music just sparks of energy and freshness from the experience we had jamming together. We are truly kindred spirits and are in this for the long run, for sure. ‘Edder & Bile’ is the manifestation of our commitment to music and the start of everlasting life for the old Cadaver.”

Verbeuren added:

“‘Hallucinating Anxiety’ threw me for a loop when I first heard it as a teenager. As such albums tend to do, it quickly became one of my favorites. I followed Cadaver through various incarnations over the years, and when the chance to work with Anders unexpectedly presented itself, needless to say, I didn’t have to mull it over.

Our goal was for ‘Edder & Bile’ to capture the spontaneous, filthy energy of death metal. It was an effortless collaboration — things just naturally fell into place and the result speaks for itself. Feast upon this, death fiends!”

Cadaver Release New EP “D.G.A.F.”

Cadaver, the band featuring Anders Odden (Satyricon) and Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth), have digitally released a new EP titled “D.G.A.F.” The effort comes with three songs including the title track, which features Jeff Walker (Carcass), “Deformed Insanity,” and “Disgrace.”

Odden commented:

“In 1989, Cadaver got signed to Necrosis Records owned by Jeff Walker and Bill Steer from Carcass. Cadaver’s debut album, ‘Hallucinating Anxiety’, was released in 1990 as Norway’s first death metal LP. Now, in 2020, Nuclear Blast have embraced the resurrection of Cadaver and release the EP ‘D.G.A.F.’ with a tip of the hat to the legacy of Carcass. Jeff Walker even join us in the chorus this time around. We are super stoked to release this beast during this very special time. Get your mind off the craziness and enjoy old school death metal.”

Verbeuren added:

“As a legendary band once said, extreme conditions demand extreme responses. We were going to release a three-song EP sometime after our new album came out, but then a global pandemic happened. While the full-length will arrive at a later date, here’s ‘D.G.A.F.’ in all its brutal glory and on Nuclear Blast, which we couldn’t be more stoked about. Consider these misanthropic death metal hymns our soundtrack to the end of days.”
