To mark the release of their self-titled, eighth studio album, Norwegian black metallers Satyricon played a special, exclusive show this Sunday, at the Den Norske Opera & Ballett in Oslo, Norway, where they were joined by the 55-strong Norwegian National Opera Chorus. The results are truly something else – dare I say, better than their usual live acts.
“SATYRICON excels as a band, the bigger the platform is. In Norway, there is no greater stage than the main hall of our new Opera House. There is nowhere better suited to provide the dynamics, power and authenticity to such an occasion than the Opera Choir and SATYRICON. To us, there is no better way to celebrate with our fans that we are back with our first album in five years.”, sayd the band’s frontman Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven.
Their new, self titled album was already released in Europe, and will reach the US on September 17.
