When it comes to something dark, sinister and macabre settings Norwegian dual powerhouse SATYRICON are at the helm for driving things forward. Wading through the misty, grim and cold winters SATYRICON have paved a long way of terrifying black metal ever since it was formed in 1991 in Oslo. They are till this date one of the prime and most important black metal bands in the world to have come out of the unholy grounds from up north. As they inch closer to three decades of hard hitting black metal, the duo are ready shroud the entire United States with black clouds on their final US run this spring in support of their latest studio album, ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep‘.
The tour starts May 13th in Los Angeles, CA and runs through May 30th in Austin, TX with two stops in Canada. Fellow black metallers, INQUISITION will provide support on the tour. A complete list of dates can be found below. The run also includes a headline appearance at The Maryland Death Fest.
My co-writer Plague lays heaps of praise on SATYRICON‘s ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep‘ on his Top 10 2017 Albums list and opines that the album is, “Dark, raw, and diabolical“, and holy hell he couldn’t have been more accurate. This album indeed is a feast of darkness. The sheer force of personality and creativity that has driven SATYRICON forward over the last quarter of a century is writ large across ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep‘ extraordinary musical contents. ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep‘ is a profound statement about the essence of SATYRICON’s music and the eternal value of art itself.
“As our U.S fans will have noticed, we haven’t toured there in nine years. There are many reasons for that. I like America and I like Americans, but unfortunately touring there has been a difficult chapter in the history of Satyricon. I can’t guarantee what the future holds, but we did not go on the last record, so I am hoping that one final headlining tour can be a good way of sharing some electric musical moments with our U.S fans, whom we love just as much as all our other fans across the world“, states Satyr.
Appearing on many year end top albums list, like ours, SATYRICON’s ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep‘ has done exceptionally well. You don’t wanna miss out on this record. Get the album HERE!
