SATYRICON Working On New Album, Band To Perform With Norwegian National Opera Chorus

Norwegian extreme metal band, SATYRICON, is currently working on their as-yet untitled new album and follow-up to 2008's "The Age of Nero," scheduled for a late 2013 release.

The band is also planning a performance with the Norwegian National Opera Chorus as part of the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival (official date and info is yet to be revealed).

Frontman Sigurd "Satyr" Wongraven had this to say about the new record:

"To me, it sounds very authentic, it's organic-sounding. And in this digital age where music is mostly played through computers, a lot of that analog vibe gets lost in translation when you play music through medias like that, but I still wanna do it because there's nothing quite like it. To me, it just makes everything sound the way it's supposed to sound — it's dynamical; the music is alive, it's not overly compressed, the levels are not pushed. So, musically speaking, it's a very atmospheric record… This record is full of life. There are a lot of surprises here, but I think it's gonna be a record that's gonna help the black metal movement perhaps find a new way for the future"
