Norway's Satyricon are a rare exception to the Black Metal norm – they never cared for trends in how one is supposed to present oneself and abhorred the tried and tested genre stereotypes.

What became apparent on their previous album Now, Diabolical is now a dark truth on new album The Age Of Nero, their second through Roadrunner Records.

Largely written in a remote cabin deep in the Norwegian woods, the guitars have been seriously down tuned, adding to the raw power of the sound. The Age of Nero is metal in its most mature form - not as simple escapism or a form of anger management, but as a profound experience of what it's like to live in the increasingly dark age ours has become.

Satyr, the driving force behind the band, never made a secret out of his plan to turn Satyricon into more than just the darlings of a subculture. They strip away all ambiguous metaphors developing a refined sense for sombre, great melody lines and precise, overwhelming rhythmic structures courtesy of drum legend Frost.

Satyricon’s venomous appeal is only apt to get stronger as they officially announce their triumphant return to Australia in March 2009!

Performing Shows on the East and West coasts of Australia this band is an epic musical experience not to be dismissed lightly.
