From the start of this album, it is darkly beautiful. There is a change in tone for Satyricon, they have matured and mastered their craft and as such this is not the raw blast beats and harsh vocals that we know and love. However this is not to say that the album is not aggressive or heavy. It remains that delicate Black Metal sound, but the is also a little more varied. As with other bands that have been going for twenty or more years, their sound has evolved and this is good. As much as I love their earlier stuff, I did not want a rehash of old themes and this album delivers as tey break new ground.
The guest vocalist on Phoenix is a good choice for a more rock sound, but with the backing of Frost on drums and the aggressive guitars from the rest of the band, this is a beautiful piece. However, it is entirely valid to argue that this song is a step away from Black Metal with its clean vocals and more gentle tempo.
As with bands like Enslaved and Opeth, Satyricon have grown up, their sound has developed into something unique and away from the generic clutter of some modern Black Metal bands. As such I greatly enjoyed this album, but I also still enjoy the ones that came before it. Were Satyricon to retire from the scene, this would be a lovely album to end on, a delicate and beautiful Swansong.
Musically speaking Satyricon are all over the place; pummelling BM, Cult of Luna style epic, almost pop like breaks all sprinkled with a bit of punk. It is varied and interesting, throwing up nice little nuances every time you listen to it, unfortunately it doesn't manage to set the world on fire like it threatens to, it is a shame but it does make you tingle with excitement at the potential bubbling away throughout which perhaps will be fully realised with their next album. Not that you should let this one pass you by because it is worth owning and will likely bring you lots of pleasure

Oh dear. This album is simply rubbish. I say it as a fan too. The pacing sounds like the band can't get out of second gear, the sound and production much the same as the previous couple of albums, if not worse. For all their talk as this being the defining album of Satyricon, this sounds like out takes from the last album or two.
It's always hard to be as interested in a band after so long, you'll always have your favourite period etc, and these fellas are getting on a bit. I don't go to Satyricon for that evil blast that some BM gives, nor the proggy expanse of peers Enslaved, but they always seemed to have something great about them that has simply gone.
The last three times I've seen them it's been an almost identical set list too, made worse by the rent a band set up that makes it seem a bit cabaret. I think they've caught themselves in a corner and this album sounds like it.Read more ›
