SATYRICON formed in 1991 as a Norwegian black metal band, but has always been a little bit unusual for the genre. SATYRICON is band, who, like Emperor but in a different way, stands apart from the rest of the black metal scene by embracing other influences into their music and that’s what kept everything so interesting. It’s complex, it’s different, it’s pure brilliance. It isn’t raw black metal, it isn’t “true” black metal – it is rock-influenced black metal. Over the years, SATYRICON has divided opinions but has never lost any ounce of creativity and remains a fantastic and unique evolving entity.
