These days it seems that even the field of extreme metal - which by definition should be destroying boundaries instead of creating new ones - has become saturated with sub-genres, where minimal stylistic differences turn into criteria for what's hot and what's not.

And stylistic in this sense doesn't even stop with music; it's as much about fashion, image and appearance. ... Read more in Amazon's Satyricon Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Now, Diabolical - Satyricon 7 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
Black metal - the music that inspired millions to change their beliefs, change their lifestyle, even resort to arsen of churches.

Satyricon are one of the fastest growing black metal bands around, with good reason. They have delivered masterpiece upon masterpiece of albums (Nemesis Divina, Volcano etc), and now they emerge with this from the 7th circle.

Now Diabolical is a revolutionary black metal album, it differenciates quite a lot from normal black metal, and from their older albums, but in a very good way. The pace is slowed down, riffs made more whole - more like conventional guitaring rather than just background sound. The strongest parts of this album have to be the drumming and the vocals. The vocals sound raw, evil....incredible, the lyrics are meaningful (for example King: "Bloodshot eyes/metal skin....Serpants toungue/Dagger claw....Dragon wings/Crooked horns" I.e the devil), just like any black metal lyrics should be.

The fact that this album differenciates from original black metal may scare away more purist fans, however while it is slower paced and more emphasis on the music as opposed to full focus on the lyrical content as with most black metal bands, now diabolical still manages to retain the dark, evil essance that makes up black metal. Purists won't be disapointed.

Highlights include the pentagram burns, rite of our cross, the darkness shall be eternal and to the mountains.

I have had the priviledge of seeing satyricon in concert, and the quality of the music remains as good as ever, satyr's vocals do not waver at any point, and frost never ceases his incredible drumming.

Overall, i give this album 5 stars.

You get Now Diabolical the best cd of 2006 ( so far any way ). Its dark , brutal and strangly catchy. I would recomended to any black metal fan and any heavy metal fans as it black but not as fast as there other stuff so appels to more people if it had different vocals could be taken for gothic rock music. Technicly its an amazing cd the drumming is out of this world and its so pricice with the guitarwork and vocals you could set your watch to it. highlight songs include K.I.N.G , New Eneamy , The Darkness Shall Be Eternal and To The Mountains by know you wont regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars crackin forward thinking black metal 26 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
It is very exciting to see that the most progressive genre around right now is also, by far, the least accessible and the one most people will quite rightly refer to as "scary". Norwegian stalwarts Satyricon have always looked to further themselves by leading the black metal scene.

2002's Volcano spawned a song that almost proved to be their breakthrough. Fuel For Hatred took an arguably more commercial route through the ruinous metal world by blending the edges with deeper, more rock 'n' roll-based grooves and lyrics that were less introspective and put across with a gentler inflection. This new direction appears to have been agreed upon and followed wholeheartedly in Now, Diabolical. While veterans of their audience may turn their noses up at the first whiff of evolution in their sound, many others will be able to appreciate how their esoteric sound rises above and beyond the majority of the tripe that is understood as Heavy Metal.

There is an unsettling brutality merged with riffs that have an intangible, immediate nature. The title track, opening the record, is far from frantic but the sound invades your senses with a sense of unyielding impending violence that follows through the first half of the album. The constant languid nature of this record is thankfully peppered with the ghoulish explosion of 'The Rite Of Our Cross' and the epic, marauding 'To The Mountains' closing the album after sending shivers through your mind. It would be unwise to suggest that this band is at the pinnacle of their career because, acknowledging the complexity and superiority shown here, they are untouchable in their field right now.

With their sixth album, Satyr and Frost have created an album that follows a most unpredictable route.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb CD 5 July 2006
By Raven
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I agree with all the other reviews, this is definately Black Metal meets Heavy Metal. Black Metal with killer riffs, this is truely a magnificent CD. It goes through fast and slow riffs, demonic vocals (that you can iterpretate). My favourite songs so far are the first three, "Now Diabolical" "K.I.N.G" and "The Pentagram Burns". I totally recommend this to Metal lovers, this is the best thing I have heard for ages. A Punk rocker once told me in 1978 that Metal is dead, I said that Metal will live on forever, this is living proof!

5.0 out of 5 stars love it 19 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
Satyricon changed their style through the years. The first Satyricon release, 'Dark Medieval Times', which they released in 1993, was dark black metal with some influences of folk. Through the years the music changed, like the line up. Only Satyr and Frost are the true members of the band. When Satyricon released 'Volcano' in 2002, I was overwhelmed by the music. And the same thing happened to me when I listened for the first time to 'Now, Diabolical'.

But has the music changed again? Well, yes and no. It surely reminds me of 'Volcano', no doubt about that. But it is also refreshing again. When Satyricon was really getting groovy on 'Volcano' I thought that had to be the climax, it could not have been done any better. Well Satyricon did everything they could and produced an album which is even better, with more groove, more aggression and more power.

I hear you all thinking. "More groove? Is it still black metal? " Yes, because despite the groove, Satyricon still is able to create a dark and sinister feeling.

The song 'K.I.N.G.'.... how shall I describe it? Awesome!!! It makes you want to bang your head off, scream 'till your tongue begins to burn, and drink beer 'till you fall face down on the ground. It has so much energy. I love it. The drums are simple and right in your face, the guitar riffs are razor sharp and Satyrs vocals give me this chill in my entire body.

And let's talk about the 3rd song. Well, I was talking about energy. Where the song 'K.I.N.G.' ends, 'The pentagram burns' takes over. Again the fantastic grooves, and even more threatening vocals. And what's that? Horns? Wow. You just have to hear it. It gives the music this extra touch.

Then there is 'A new enemy'. Damn, great drumming by Frost!
