First of, this album is absolutely fantastic. Satyricon's last two albums, 'Rebel Extravaganza' and 'Volcano' have started to pull away from the traditional style of black metal, by creating a much more underground & industrial feel.In this album, they have done it perfectly. Frost's drums are still lightning fast, thunderously heavy and his use of the toms creates a superb rumbling effect.The riffs are mean, perfectly executed, and sometimes screechy, once again to create a superbly mechanical atmosphere.Most of the songs are played at supersonic speed, hence the title 'Supersonic Journey', but are brilliantly punctuated with slow, heavy parts. This is by far my favourite Satyricon album, and I hope they make another with some of the elements from this one.
Fans of early black metal may not take a liking to this almost new breed of the genre, but for those starting to get into black metal, 'Rebel Extravaganza' and 'Volcano' are very accessible.
Outstanding tracks are pretty much all of them, but 'Tied In Bronze Chains' and 'A Moment Of Clarity' are in a league of their own.

It's amazing how much black metal has changed. A few years ago, they were all about the forest, and mythical fantasy stuff, and now, Satyricon release Rebel Extravaganza, which deals with urban myths, and even religion (!).
The songs on this are not typical to black metal at all, or at least not typical of Satyricon. With 3 instrumentals, and a remix, this is much different from before. There are also differences in the style of the music itself, as there is a lot of mid-paced stuff rather then all fast. The songs, Havoc Vulture, and Supersonic Journey showcase this fact, and they're both excellent songs.
The riffs go really well for the whole album, and there's an overall feel of consistency to the album, even with the instrumentals, which are well placed to give interludes and introductions to songs. The new-found futurism of the lyrics is also well reflected in the music, as Supersonic Journey shows. Although there are some killer fast patches, some of the slow bits are really good, with Frost showing how good he is on most tracks.
If you haven't heard them before, like I hadn't when i got this, then you might like it more then someone who has the whole back catalogue, as they might not like the change from the past into the future, but I don't think that it matters.
Another nail in the coffin of Black metal as it was known, along with the death metal transformations of Emeror and Immortal, and the maturity, and avantgarde tendencies of new Mayhem, the old guard seems to be changing, but i think that it will be for the better to see the whole fragmentation of the scene...
One to keep an eye on.

Black Metal with groove anybody? You have come to the right place. If memory serves me correctly Satyricon had a lot of flak for releasing an album where the songs have a semblance of structure, they ended up losing some of their more sheep like followers, they did widen their fan base though which must have been nice. I can't judge their earlier stuff having not yet heard it so I won't try and compare. `Rebel Extravaganza' is the sound of Venom taken in a Celtic Frost type direction. The black metal fury is there but it is broken up with dynamics. It's a sound that you hear quite a bit now but I think a lot of the reason for that is that Satyricon made the brave jump and paved the way for it.

This album is certainly one for the headbangers, sure it can sound a bit flat at times but there are plenty of moments that will take you by the hair and drag you up and down the stairs; you will love it you really will. The atmosphere, despite all the bounciness going on, still gives you a bit of a chill as black metal should only this time there is more bottom end weight.

The album is worth buying but in my opinion it can't get the five stars that I probably would have given it if I had reviewed it on release, because it feels like it has aged a bit too much.

This was deservedly one of the best metal albums of 1999. It is not a traditional "cloak and face paint slaughtering sheep in the woods" type black metal, it is much more than that. There are plenty of time changes and it is not all warpspeed thrashing. The songs are very complex but have great hooks. And the production is magnificent. It's almost an urban, streetwise grind record, similar to something like Cadaver Inc (but thankfully no rapping). Even if you don't like black metal you'll love this, especially if you've heard Dissection's classic, progressive "Storm Of The Light's Bane".

HASH(0x92f85a38) out of 5 stars The new age of Black Metal 16 Nov. 2000
By Ken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There seems to be a new movement in Black Metal, and I think it's new sound is being spearheaded by the likes of Satyricon and a few others. A number of bands typically associated with this genre have decided to break the mold and "throw caution to the wind" by sonically moving forward into the new millenium rather than stagnating by recording the same necro-sounding album over and over again. The notable few to so this successfully are Emperor (with "IX Equilibrium"), Mayhem ("Grand Declaration Of War"), Tormentor ("Recipe Ferrum"), and Satyricon's "Rebel Extravaganza". By all means, this is a good thing! You want sheer speed? It's here. You want cold, bleak, and dark guitar work? Again, it's here. You want misanthropic lyrics? Yep. But if you also want progression and intelligence, listen to this CD... along with the others I mentioned. This release stretches the label of Black Metal to the point that I'm cautious to even use that tag. This is intelligent & sophisticated art. You'll know that this is the trademark Satyricon writing and craftsmanship when you hear it, but Satyr and Frost have created the unimaginable - a new brutal edge in Black Metal. There are very few times that you can use the words "fresh" and "original" when describing Black Metal, but they fit perfect here.

HASH(0x92f85a8c) out of 5 stars Fast Supreme Black Metal Lives! 30 May 2001
By Yohan Loud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album just rocks. This might be their most uncommercial album ever. This stuff is heavy and fast and very creative. Everyone got scared that they would go Industrial on this album, but that was not the case. Fans of the older material might still wish for the keyboards and the mideval themes, but the lyrics here are quite thought provoking. The last track is a little ambient and has some 80's metal vocals thrown in. Satyr's vocals are awesome and has thrown in some distorted vocals in for good measure. Frost's drumming is superb here. I wouldn't recommend this album to someone who hasn't listened to Black Metal yet. Try Shadowthrone first, then Nemisis, and then try this one. This album remains true to the vain of early 90's metal like Mayhem, Darkthrone, and Immortal. If you like fast Black Metal without the Goth, then you should get this.

HASH(0x93351f0c) out of 5 stars Experimental dark metal 12 Mar. 2003
By jake smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have to admit that it took a couple listens for me to get use to Rebel Extraganza. This album is far different from any of Satyricon's previous releases. The conceptual themes of past albums "Shadowthrone", and "Dark Medeval Times" are no longer present. Rebel is much more stripped down sound while maintaining a dynamic sound that sets Saytricon apart from it's Black Metal predecessors. My favorite songs would have to be "Havok Vultures"( w/ a cameo from Ferniz or DarkThrone), "Prime Evil Renaissance", and the blast beat rythms of "Supersonic Journey". Rebel also includes a couple of subtle interludes in between songs, allowing you to rest before your senses get pummeled again with Satyricon's brand of Dark Metal. Most fans either hate or love this album. This albums an aquired taste.I myself listen to it with a sense of awe, as one may listen to symphony or orchestra music. Does it rock? Hell yeah! A must have for open minded metal fanatics.

HASH(0x92f85d14) out of 5 stars Urban Black Metal for the new Millennium... 30 April 2001
By claus_byrial@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Rebel Extravaganza" is NOT a CD for those Black Metal "romantics", who only want grizzly produced music with lyrics about medieval satanism and the very "evil" effects of living in a snow-covered Norwegian forrest...
Satyricon's form of Black Metal on "Rebel Extravaganza" is more of an urban phenomenon, dealing more with the problems of being a "rebel" in a new millennium, and trying to deal with the problems of living in an urbanized, cold, panzer-materialistic world, devoid of real emotion and content.
Therefore the music has to mirror these lyrical themes, even if it means abandoning the typical "recorded in a basement on a tape-recorder"-type production-values, in favor of the razor-sharp clean production, that "Rebel Extravaganza" sports.
This does NOT make Satyricon a Death Metal band, as some seem to think, by just aids Satyricon in making as awesome a sonic impact as humanly possible...
"Rebel Extravaganza" is ample proof of exacly that fact, as it to me shows the way for Black Metal to evolve triumphantly into the new millennium, without loosing any of Black Metal's original rebel-like qualities...
"Rebel Extravaganza" is a tour de force of aggressive, technically adept, well-composed, catchy, razor-sharp, futuristic Black Metal with highly thoughtful, intelligent lyrics, and should appeal to ALL lovers of innovative extreme metal..
In short: A masterpiece!

HASH(0x92f85f54) out of 5 stars A new direction for the genre 11 May 2001
By Chris 'raging bill' Burton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many people appear to mixed on this album. When I first heard I really wasn't impressed, but I didn't listen to much extreme metal then. As my tastes evolved I listened again and I was more impressed. What I find interesting is the vast difference between this and Satyricon's debut Dark Medieval Times.
One reviewer refered to this and "Urban Black Metal". This would make a lot of sense. Much black metal has had the majestic medieval feel to it. This has a much more brutal, modern feel to it. This is either a good thing or a bad thing, depending which way you look at it.
My way of seeing it is that this album doesn't have the evil feel I associate with some other black metals. Instead it has a more upfront feel. This is certainly good as a progression since music should evolve, and certainly it would harm black metal (which is quite a stubborn genre) to change a bit.
This album does have elements of death metal and industrial in it, but I like to think of it as a modern black metal album that is taking an evolutionary feel. I won't say that any black metal fan would like it. It has a more direct heavy feel so someone used to atmosphere may not like it. But it is original in what is becoming a stale genre.
